YUP! My new D90!!! Oh, the torture! The battery has 3 lines on it, and there is NO way I can use it right now. I have to finish cooking for our holiday (Succos), and then I can play. Then, I can't use it for 2 whole days. OHHHH, the torture of it.

But at least I have it in my greedy little hands. The UPS guy must have thought I was insane. I took a picture of the truck. I took a picture of him with my box. I will post pictures later after I finish cooking.

Ah come on you guys! You aren't even going to say anything????? 30 views and no comments?

My good-natured UPS guy. (He is probably thinking I am a whack job or something.)

Congratulations. :D

We sell UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supplies) and it's amazing how many times people Google UPS then ring our office and start the conversation with "My Aunt in Hungary sent a parcel and it hasn't arrived" or similar. Fairly soon after that they feel a bit silly. :D:D:D

Leah,

The UPS guy is probably very happy for the business. It's not all that often that people are overjoyed enough to start taking their image. I know I was pretty annoyed when I got my UPS delivery, the other day, from B&H with my TAMRON SP AF 200-500mm f/5-6.3 Di LD lens inside.

Yes, it was supposed to be a square box.

It's nice to know they can arrive in somewhat proper condition. Good luck with your new image maker. ;)

I had two in a row that came looking worse than that. Was a computer system I bought from B&H and the first computer wouldn't boot so I returned it. The replacement box looked just as bad as the first.

Well done Leah. Did you ask the guy to re-enact his arrival or did you wait for him all day? :D
