Back to work... Unprepared for the horror

Yep, went back to work after my short vacation. And I truly was not ready for the worst of the worst. Or things that happened nearly 9 months ago to come back to bite my ass. Let me explain:

Meter strips... fun things really. We at work post, for general and priority mail, money (so to speak) to these things
Guess what we ran out of? Yep, meter strips.
So, not 15 minutes into work I'm having to drive (short drive, but not direct... you have to hit this place from a certain side... you can't cross traffic because of a center median) to Office Depot to see if I can find some replacements. Not fully possible, I find out. I come close but they don't even look like what we use
Ours are long strips that come two post-able 'strips' each.
The ones I found come with 2 LONGER strips, but instead of short end, these are placed side by side on their long side (with a little unusable part dead center)
So, I had to CUT THESE DAMM THINGS TO SIZE just to use them..... and it gets better.

We have tried, 4 TIMES, to get more strips from PFE Ascom.
This next bit of info will show up later as relevant: Back in January I goofed and ordered from PFEAsscon (hehehe) Thermal labels he have to use for send things via UPS. We returned them.
Back to today: Just before I left for office depot, we faxed over yet another order (they don't do phone orders) to PFE for these strips. They have told us before that they never received them. When I returned from OD, the shock set in:
They couldn't... and I think wouldn't... send us the stuff... We had an outstanding invoice from April. You know, they didn't say this before. If my boss hadn't called right after they received the fax I don't we would have ever known. Really... fucked... up!

Now, take info from before: When we returned those labels, they gave us a credit (for $800... I was shocked that these things cost that much o.O). So, Grendelia in accounts payable, didn't pay the invoice. And rightfully so, as we had a credit.
So: We have a credit to the account that doesn't seem to be honored, Boss is like "WTF?", and I spent the morning cussing up a storm >_<

Side note: Do not drink Jack Daniel's Hard Cola. It can be made cheaper with a bottle of Jack Daniel's and a 2-liter of Coke. And it must contain some opiate since I cannot stay awake after drinking one. >_<
