1. IIRC, the delivery window is essentially thrown 'out the window'
during the holidays. I do know that the drivers keep delivering until the truck is empty, so keep the faith!

4. C'mon. Spill it. What are you waiting for?
Me? I'm waiting for two items I won off EBay, some American Girl stuff, some NYGiants apparel and a cream colored pea coat.

And, tomorrow is another day. Ugh.

Edited on Mon Dec-08-08 09:24 PM by hendo
Christmas presents for my brother-in-law. The new Indy, Ironman, and the National Lampoon's Ultimate Vacation Collection.

edit: you're a Giants fan? I have a bunch of stuff from the Packers - Giants NFC Championship game. I was there, but being a Packers fan I didn't like the outcome.

8. Ooh!! Great presents. I bet he'll love them.
My son. The ULTIMATE Giants fan. My brother got him an autographed football signed by Tiki Barber and although he denies it, I think he sleeps with it.

:rofl:

He asked for some Giants apparel this year. Hat, Sweatshirt, etc.

If you've got some stuff that you'd like to unload, let me know. He'd be thrilled.

6. They're better than FedEx.
When I called UPS because my income tax return from my accountant went to the wrong address, the dispatcher contacted the driver and I ended up meeting the truck and getting my delivery in the middle of Philadelphia. They couldn't have been nicer.

FedEx couldn't care less if they screw up.

7. Yes, they do ...

I've already ranted about this in the computer forum, so I won't go on endlessly about it.

Suffice to say, I'm STILL waiting for my damn monitor they broke when they delivered it to me and dealing with an old, unfocused CRT that makes my eyes wobble and my head contort inward on itself.
