    You need to look at the pros and not the cons. It could be worse, you could be ********* your drummer on the table...

    ;) :D

    Enjoy the wait.

    Why does the scene with the movers putting a note on the door from the movie Moving come to mind?

    Just as long as the driver is competent you should be ok. The surprise factors is what makes the wait worth it.

    Sign up for a free UPS account. From there you can have the package held for pickup at their nearest UPS facility for no charge. No waiting around or missing the doorbell as you are taking a shower. You just pick it up firs thing in the AM rather waiting for a driver to get to you place at some random time.

    The "surprise" factor for today is getting it delivered before the wife gets home :D

    Yeah, and be sure you get the packaging out of sight, too. Hiding the bass in the closet isn't enough.

    I've been busted before trying to hide packages of multiple sorts. Best of luck.

    Yep! Me too!
     
  20. Know what's worse than waiting? Missing the delivery driver by five minutes when a direct signature is required!
    Happened to me last Friday waiting for a Fender P to be delivered.
