A Christmas Miracle . . . not . . .

This is for all the ever hopeful wine guys out there:

Guy calls up and wants 12 of this champagne and 7 of that Condrieu by New Year's Eve and I say, "Cases?" thinking my ship had come in, big dinner party, hundreds of people and he says, "Bottles." and I say, sure, no problem, "Where do you want it shipped?", kind of deflated but still, a sale is a sale, right? So he says, "Paso Robles" and I just about died laughing. Paso is about as far away as you can ship a case of wine.

We did come to an agreement but my hopes of thousands of dollars vanished. I wonder. I am going to get coal in my stocking?
