Agony, continued. Wednesday February 16, 2005, 2 comments

It’s still not here. About 24 hours late by this point.

To make matters worse, UPS is launching an “investigation,” whatever the hell that means. To me that means they’re damned sure they’ve lost something, and want to make sure they appear to have taken all steps before telling me I’m SOL.

If it doesn’t arrive, I’m going to be out more money than I can afford to be out.

Sick with worry? Yeah, you could say that.

While it’s true there are far larger things in the world to be worried about, it’s hard for me to get past this right now.

Here’s hoping it arrives soon.
