Link with 942: Waiting.

[At the end of November last year I ordered eight Japanese language books from Amazon (www.amazon.com). On December 22 an email from Amazon that said the books had been shipped. Would it be possible that they'd arrive in the mail over the Christmas vacation? Now that was wishful thinking as it is now the end of February and every day I still check the mailbox in vain. I feel like a little kid waiting for Christmas day to arrive.]

There's no way it should be taking this long, Vaughn. I'd contact Amazon about getting a refund.

And oh yeah, good one. :)

oh so apt
(i'm waiting for a delivery from USA and check the mailbox every day - knowing deep down that it will probably be six weeks before delivery)
"lord what fools these mortals be" :)

Great! It happened to me often. I used to order books from GB and America, books that fascinated me. And then I waited, checking the mailbox every morning. Not that bad...!:)Not living in the here and now, though!?:)

Hi Masgo,
I like your words.
I didn't know about Haiku until I started surfing the internet. Haiku reminds me very much of quotations, which I love, though Haiku is like catching a moments thought rather than what someone has said.
Best wishes

Aurora: Thanks. Well, it was sent regular post so maybe it got delayed at Christmas and held up at the border. I'm not sure if Amazon will do anything if it was sent regular post (I can try).

Floots: It's a bummer, eh?

Borut: Thanks. Did you always get your parcel?

John: Thanks.

Annie & Loman: Thank you for your kind words. Just curious, what did you search on to find this blog?

Pat: You too, eh? :-)

Gautami: Another one. :-)

Polona: Thanks. It seems to be a common experience. :-)

Borut said...

I was lucky, yes. All boks arrived, sooner or later...:)
