    I got an email this morning, out for delivery by 1015-2:15 pm.. Its 3:20 and my tele aint here. GRRRRR!!!! I been setting here watching out the window forever...but I am practicing. The ups delivery center in town here is 4 blocks from my house, he should come by here first, but no, I bet I am gonna be last delivery of the day, and he better not chunk that box on my porch I am watching..

    It doesn't work like that. They drive out and back toward UPS so they don't end their day way out there.

    No it doesn't. But the owner gets busted when he comes by to harvest it.

    I find on delivery day it’s best to be very busy with other things, then it seems they show up right one time.

    I have a friend who owns a small specialty retail store here in town. UPS runs at my house between 5-7PM. UPS runs at his store between 12-2PM. I have my guitars sent there.

    You all need to learn patience. It's a virtue that adults exhibit as a good example to spoiled children. It's not good when the adults act like the spoiled children.
    If I'm expecting a delivery today, and it doesn't come today, I may be a little disappointed, but I don't get all outraged and let it ruin my day. I'll still be here tomorrow when it does come. When you've been diagnosed with a life threatening disease like cancer it helps to put things in perspective, and you don't sweat the small stuff that doesn't really matter. You leave your worrying for the really important things that do matter.

    Spoiler: SARCASM!

    Who said we were all adults here? I promised my wife I'd never grow into an adult... at 45 I think I'm succeeding in letting my puberty transform seamlessly into a midlife crisis. The midlife crisis has some advantages, like it allows for GAS since I earn the money for it myself, and don't have to ask my parents. The puberty part allows me to buy those guitars NOW and not when the next paycheck comes in.
    I just explained why it WAS a good thing. Could you explain why this would be a bad thing?

    There are apparently 2 ways of dealing with life:
    1) stay a kid forever and wanting it all now! NOW! NOW! NOW!
    2) become an adult and do the responsible thing

    Somehow I can see how the first option is more appealing!
     
  13. I don't have that issue … I never buy thru a source where my hands can't touch the guitar first.
    At least that's been my experience thus far in life.

    Cheers, Barrie.

    And if you're even more impatient, Amazon will deliver to your car trunk - if you have the right make/model and they can access your remote control frequency. Later, their delivery drones might drop the guitar through your sun roof as you drive around.

    No the reason I get a little mental is I have had stuff dropped of at the wrong house, no big deal since they scan it and the gps coordinates show where it was dropped off but I have had stuff stolen off my porch, not here but when I was in Nevada. I got a replacement but it took awhile. Now though with that app its cool you can see where the ups truck is.
