I love stories with happy endings.  Sounds like everyone needed to grow up just a bit to stay ahead of Chipmunchkin.   ;)
And congratulations on becoming a new Mommy.  Know that your life will never be the same.   ;D

This is interesting!  And kind of exciting.  I could arrange to be on a hilltop between Driggs and Victor (Idaho).

Thanks Slartibartfast, I've just updated my phone and had the parents do the same. :)
I had already gotten a new social security card with my married name on it.  I just couldn't believe that the DMV wouldn't take a valid driver's license with my married name on it as proof that I'd changed my name in their system.

Thanks for the tip
My garbage service did not pick up my trash today (Friday).

Don't know why. My bill is paid (I went on-line to my account just to make sure).

Their office was closed by the time I got home so I couldn't call them about it, but while I was at their web site I did a "contact us" message. I doubt that I will hear back from them before Monday. Tuesday is the next pick-up day.

Unfortunately there was a lot of trash this time . . . DD#2 brought out her old make-up desk, cleaned out the garage a bit so, yeah, there's a lot but it's all acceptable trash which is bundled the correct way.

DD#2 asked me if we needed to bring it all back into the garage, I said we probably should. DD#2 said she doesn't mind being 'one of those people' for once and just leave it out until Tuesday.

Driving me up the wall because I don't know what to do. I don't want to leave trash on my curb for four days, I don't want to drag all that trash back into my garage and the drag it out again, plus what if they do read my message before Monday and decide to come and pick it up all tomorrow? When it's not there?

Frustrated sigh.
I have  a funny feeling that somewhere a slightly taller man who bought a plain old navy blue suit is not going to be happy.  In other words, I think they got the names switched and gave you the wrong suit.

POD. And I really don't understand why you didn't speak up, especially as your son confirmed it was the wrong color (and thus likely the wrong suit). If I'm paying money for something, I want to get what I ordered, not something else.

Last week the family was at Mesa Verde National Park.  A ranger presented a slideshow on local animals.  When she got to the horny toad, she said she would not be showing a picture of it shooting blood out of its eyes.  The kids and I were audibly disappointed,  ;D which caused the rest of the audience to turn and look at us.  :-[  I guess that's kind of...strange?

So I'm coming here to feel normal.  Because surely all of you also want to see an odd-looking critter shoot blood out of its eyeballs.  ;D
I've seen it! *cue Columbia tossing clothes in the air*

But seriously, a friend of my dad was working on rebuilding a population of them so I got to hold some of the one he was moving around.

That's cool - where and why were they repopulating them?

It was in Texas, but details on the why elude me. I was under 10 at the time and between ages 3 to 17 or so I usually spent a weekend or two a month doing something with animals and Dad's exotic critter loving friends so I really don't remember what the deal with the horny toads was, other than it stung when the blood hit me in the eye, and they aren't toads, they're adorable lizards.
If ever you are in a similar situation, remember that  you don't have to make accusations. You don't even have to draw conclusions. You just ask. "Are you sure this is the suit? I could have sworn mine was a different blue."

I wouldn't ask because they'll just say "Yes, that's the color you ordered." I would straight out say it's not the color you ordered. You don't have to want any compensation to let them know they made a mistake. That's something the owner/manager want to know. Perhaps it's not the first time and they need to know if it's a pattern with this guy.

The mistake with the color is one thing, but with what happened with your hem, it sounds like this location hired a tailor who don't care about correct work or customer service.
Is there any way to get the media involved with this.  This is the type of story that a local reporter would be all over.
