Yes, Virginia, there are stupid users.

I just didn't think my wife was sounding diligent enough about looking out for the UPS delivery guy, so I decided to work from home this afternoon so I knew someone would be here to accept delivery of the new guitar.

As I was working in my loft, I periodically checked the UPS tracking site to see if the status changed to indicate it had actually been dispatched. The current status message was a bit vague.

I hit refresh (for the 30th time in 30 minutes) and sure enough the status changed--to Delivered!! That got me a bit anxious, as in "TO WHOM--NOT ME!!!" It said "Garage."

I panicked. They delivered my Mike Auldridge guitar to a garage!!! Then I wondered something, so I went downstairs and opened the door to my garage.

What do you know. A guitar. So much for Mr. Eagle Eye.

And here I was expecting the punch line: And I ain't even got a garage, you can call home and ask my wife!

Congrats on the new guitar. Hope to hear some new sound snippets real soon.

I think the UPS man came up the river and through the back yard just to outfox you. Send pictures of you kissing her on the neck -- the Auldridge Dobro, not the wife. Or, whatever :)
