What is an ignosecond?

That blissfully ignorant short space of time between the moment I open my delivery of 300 boxes for my customer's jewelry orders....
.... and then suddenly realize they're all the wrong size.

    oh no...
    can you exchange them?
    Contrariwise said...
    Not to worry. I can still use them - but only for earrings.

    I swear I thought I ordered the right size. I even measured my regular boxes to make sure.

    Oh no! Well, you could always sell some excess on Etsy. :)

    Oh man! :(

    Maybe you can sell them on Etsy and 'de-stash'?

    Sorry to hear about that.

    No, I'll use them. They're fine for earrings. They just weren't what I....expected!

    Been there. I ordered some corrugated wrap a while back. It was such a great price, so I ordered 6 of them. What I didn't realize was that they were huge rolls, not like what I've purchase locally in the past. I'm talking a total of 2'wide x 3' high!

    I've always said that "Ignorance was bliss but not as good as unconsciousness". Now I can describe how long that bliss lasts - an Ignosecond.

    Owww!! Funny post, though. And I have loads and loads of ignoseconds....

    Haha, things happen unexpectedly...

    I'm too young too call them "senior moments". Ignoseconds sounds much better.
