There are a few things I do well, but waiting is not on that list. Yesterday was a good example.
We were waiting for a FedEx delivery - what we were waiting for isn't important, and we didn't really need it yesterday, but we had a tracking number that showed the package was on the truck for delivery as of 10:15 yesterday morning.
When it hadn't arrived by 4:30, we began to worry.
We had a UPS driver last summer report that our address didn't exist wrong-side-of-street , and we were afraid it had happened again, or that the parcel had been dropped off at the wrong house, which has also happened before. I checked the FedEx tracking page again just to see if it showed it had been delivered.
Finally, at 7:00 p.m., as we were discussing calling FedEx, the package arrived safe and sound.
I'm pretty sure life was easier back when on-line tracking was not an option.
