    I swear - this is why I hate buying stuff online. My first bass is enroute and won't be delivered until Monday. The wait is killin' me! How the heck am going to pass the time this weekend?
  2. Do what you have done for the last however many years of your life ? :p

    If you really want to drive yourself crazy go to the track your package page of your shipper and keep hitting the refresh key for any updates.

    Yea, been doin' that all day...not workin' for me! :)

    I was thinking about hitting a pawn shop and checking out their selection :)

    Could get to re-wiring my old Samick guitar I guess - but that just doesn't sound very fun compare to playing a bass.

    Going to be a looooong weekend.
  7. I do that after ordering ANYTHING. :D
  8. Do not fear, football is here. :)

    fidget, pace around a lot and keep hitting 'refresh"
    By the time it arrives you'll have burned enough calories to guiltlessly down a case of beer in celebration.

    Set your alarm clock for Monday, down some whiskey, and go to sleep. Once your bass arrives, sleep will seem like a colossal waste of time. :)

  17. stake out the front door waiting for that delivery truck to get to your house..pace the floor, keep lookin' out the window every time you hear a truck (darn it, it is just the garbage truck!), pace again, go on internet, curse b/c it didn't get here that day...the next day start all over again!!
    I lucked up with my last two basses I got. I was doing the above waiting for the one to come via UPS, then met my friend and he gave me his bass before I paid him off (which despite me owning him $50 more, he told me not to worry about it and that I was paid up!! yeah!!) then the next day, while excited about the "new" bass, the UPS knocked at my door with the bass I was waiting on..:hyper::hyper:
    so, the other thing you could do is um...buy another bass locally??? lol! ended up working for me!:D
  18. Here's what you do...

    Write your last Will and Testament. In it, be sure to include the line, "When my new bass arrives, promptly ship it to tZer from the Talkbass.com Forum"

    Got it? Good.

    Now, hold your breath... Ignore the blackness that closing in - that's normal... That's it... keep holding...

    Well fedex just lost my warwick corvette 5 string that was supposed to be delivered today before 10.

    Actually this is the second time they lost it, it should have been here by wensday.

    Rumor has it, its on its way to houston or some garbage like that:help:

    So moral of the story, quit yer crying, it will still probably get there before i get mine :crying::crying:
