Thread: Timing is everything......

  1. #1

    Timing is everything......

    I ordered something online early Monday, and have been patiently waiting for its delivery.

    And guess what....



    the day I had to be away from home, the delivery man came.

    Good thing these local guys operate everyday, despite today being a Public Holiday.

    Patiently waiting for him to come by my place later today.....

    You see, I don't normally buy online. In fact, this is my third purchase after so many years. So waiting for delivery is not something I am used to......

    I did get get a confirmation from them that the item will be delivered today, at a time that I am home. Just a few hours more....

    I got to go now to run some errands, and make sure I get back home by the stipulated time. I am not going to miss out on this anymore.

    If I was you, and this is coming from a guy who buys 90% of his watches online and is well accustomed to waiting a day or 6, I wouldn't leave the house until I had the watch in my hands.

    Is it a Seiko?

    Strap for your Sumo? The MM300 L.E. you should have also bought? Stepping up to a Grand? Am I warm?

    Please don't remind me of the missed opportunity of owning what you mentioned above...
