Still Waiting

So, despite the fact that I ordered the stereo amp and speakers Friday night, they didn’t actually ship it until today. The Motorcycle Tunes folks in Amarillo are apparently not too terribly infected with the “Get’r Done!” mentality.

UPS picked up the box today, so, It’ll probably not gt here until Monday or Tuesday. Then we’ll see whether this is an installation I can do, or if I have to take it to the dealer for the electrical work.

  1. These days it seems almost NOBODY is afflicted with “get ‘er done.” Customer Service is all but non-existent now. Nobody seems to give a rat’s ass if you spend your money in their establishment or not. You’re just another number and don’t let the door hit you in the ass on the way out.

    We had a saying in the Army, “Hurry up and wait.” We did lots of waiting. Wait to get issued gear. Wait to eat. Wait to do laundry. Wait for sick call. The reasons for many waits were never explained. At the time, I didn’t realize just how well it prepared me for the rest of adult life!
