So I 'm up on the second floor of our lodge, I hear a light knock, I get to the landing between the first floor and the second floor and hear a truck pull out of the driveway, I look and it is a UPS truck. I go to the door and there is a note stuck to it saying that they missed me and will try again tomorrow.

WTF? THEY HAVE MY MT-24 TWIN HEAD FLASH FOR MY MP-E65 AND I WANT IT…..YESTERDAY!!!…….. *deep breaths, deep breaths, 1…2…3...4…5...6…7…8…9...10*

Dang, I feel like a little kid that found a note on the Christmas tree "sorry I missed you kid, I'll be back tomorrow, Santa"

And to top it all off, no one on the flipping planet has the 72mm adaptor ring so I can mount it on my 150mm Sig, it has been backordered for a month, and we all know what just happened over there, I don't think I'll hold my breath waiting for it.. Well there is one place that has it, in Hong Kong and they want $75.00 and I would have to pay shipping to the U.S

I think I'll take my 72mm Kokin adaptor ring some nails and duct tape and see what I come up with…. :twisted:

Wow. Sounds like they didn't wait too long before just taking off! I hate it when they do that. I was waiting for the UPS guy to deliver a tire that I was in desperate need of... The dog started barking and I heard the truck pull up, so I started walking to the front of the house (it's only 900 sq ft) and by the time i got to the door, he was already walking back to the truck with my tire. He didn't even knock! I opened the door and yelled at him and made him walk back with it.

Super glue also works well on lenses.

I used to be a LTL semi driver (a bit different) so I can understand the pressure to save time these drivers are under, but come on, this is getting ridiculous.

They don't waste time at the doors anymore, but I would have been following the shipping tracker and sleeping at the door! :lol:

You should have our delivery guy.
I've bought about a dozen items from the US, all delivered by UPS, and all left in a nice out of view spot with a little note in the letterbox.

Just as well, as we're all out working all day, I'd never get them, unless I collected them.

I wish that they were like that here.
