A couple of nights ago, the hubby and I decided to start putting together some of the kids' Christmas gifts, including charging an electric item.
My stomach dropped when my husband opened the box for this electric item that needs at least 18 hours of charging prior to use and the charger was no where to be found. As I read the operating instructions and manual, I found that the charger was supposed to be included in the box, but for some reason, our charger wasn't.
So just before midnight, I was on the phone with ToysRUs (which is open 24/7 until Christmas) trying to figure out how I get a charger. At that point in the evening, they didn't have any chargers in stock, but they did say they were getting a shipment in around 2am.
Naturally, I couldn't sleep very well knowing we didn't have a charger, and I woke up around 6:45am to call ToysRUs. Luckily, they did have a charger come in. I rushed out the door at 7:15 to pick up the charger, and to my great joy, ToysRUs wasn't crowded as I walked up to Customer Service and picked up the charger that was waiting for me.
Phew! Crisis averted.

Lesson learned: check gifts that need to be assembled for Christmas at least a week ahead of time so that you can verify all parts are accounted for and to assess how long it will take to assemble!
