Lessons about patience

I ordered some goodies (guitar inclusive) from online about 5 days ago. To hear Dan's sweet rave reviews about the time that he ordered his headphones, "they deliver it the next day!!" But it has been a good many "next days" of wasting brain power hoping and hopping out of bed in the morning and hanging around the genkan hoping for a ring of the doorbell. What a glorious opportunity to learn myself some patience. And perhaps some Sagawa Express people might be learning themselves some HIP HIPPETY HOP TO IT-ness.
I am now listening to a remix of "We're Still Waiting" and I cannot help but realize that I am reminded over and over again of what it is that is causing me so much anguish at this moment. I imagine this song might be frustrating for people who are waiting for a long time for something. My apologies, please listen to it with discretion.

Hahaha! I thought that was a humorously profound post. Is that why you sent me that song?

Flor, My guitar came by its self 2 months after I ordered it. they didn't have it in stock and were waiting on the Factory in China...But they should have told your in the Order confirming email how long your stuff would take. check...
If it will be ages, They'll still send your 58.

Ya. This I can understand.
The very fishy thing about it is though, that they wrote me an e-mail the day that I ordered it saying "Boy how lucky you are! Your items are in stock! We will send them within 12 hours!" And then nothing.
I just did some follow up this morning though and they apologized to me (I am happy like a true self-respecting American) and it should be coming sometime today, yay!
