Does anyone else get REALLY excited on the days when they think something they ordered is going to be delivered?

    haha i was totally hungover and asleep today... and as I was expecting a parcel the doorbell penetrated through the haze at 7am and the only reason I got up was to get my parcel!

    I would'a been pisssssssssssed if I missed it or if it hadnt been my parcel.

    So, ya, totally.

    I track everything online, I know exactly when they will arrive. I even have iPhone apps that track these things. They arrive on time, within a several-hour window.

    ...and a pot that's not watched, boils over and soaks the entire kitchen before you remember to get back to it.

    I used to but my innate pessimism (and past experience) makes me assume nothing will arive when I'm told it will.

    YES. I ordered some underwear right before new years, and had to wait 2 whole weeks for shipping when it was supposed to be 2-3 day. It was nerve racking, and these are my very first pairs of boxer briefs made by Calvin Cline... (feels so good icon_smile.gif) It was my Christmas present to myself since I didn't get anything for Christmas.

    Yeah, just last week I was anticipating the arrival (finally) of my new circular barbell ring for my Prince Albert piercing. Was so happy when it was delivered.

    Oh GOD how well I know your pain !!!

    But you'll feel better after you hear my story !!! So here goes !! This wasn't exactly a purchase, but !!! I had won a nearly 3 year long battle with the IRS, they had claimed I owed them $17,000, but I won the case showing that they instead owed me $4,300. I was exstatic !!! Thrilled !!!! Because I knew when the check would come, I had 'gifting' myself all planned out.


    The IRS told me when to expect the check. so I waited, the day came, no check, the next day came and still no check, a week passed and still no check. I called the IRS, they gave me the date it was sent, but still no check. finally after about two weeks I had the IRS track it and learned that that GDAMN POST OFFICE HAD SENT THE DAMN THING BACK !!!!!


    I WAS LIVID !!!! I called the post office and WENT POSTAL !!! LOL !!! . I told her UNLESS I CALL AND TELL YOU THAT I"M DEAD, YOU LEAVE MY DAMN MAIL IN MY BOX !!!! Well that statement broke the tension !!! LOL so now even though I travel very frequently my mail is always there.

    Long story shortened, It took six weeks to get the second check in my mailbox, when it finally came the postlady had put a smiley face on the envelope. LOL !!! and that day I went on a shopping spree !!! But oh God I'll never forget how disappointed I was when that check didn't come !!!! So your case could be worse, Hang in there !!!

    I do get excited. But I usually track the packages online so I know when they're out for delivery. It sucks when you miss the delivery man by just a matter of minutes and you see that note on your door.

    I ordered RealJock's own wrestlervic's book, Musings of a Dysfunctional Life, and FedEx delivered it to the wrong house! So the online tracking showed it was delivered but I hadn't yet received it! I didn't receive it until several days later. So yeah, I was pretty down about having to wait all those extra days to get the book.

    BTW, anyone who hasn't checked the book out yet really out to.

    Much of the time my personal philosophy in life is summed up nicely in a line from John Cleese's film Clockwise

    "It's not the despair. I can take the despair. It's the hope I can't stand."
