“When it absolutely positively has to be there overnight”

Well here I am looking forward to setting up satellite internet. I surveyed the rooftop – good view of the sat. So placed my order and hey, the stuff arrived.

Or so I thought…

well only 2 of the three packages made it. I’m sitting here looking at a beautiful new dish complete with transceiver block and a cool-looking modem but … the bracket to mount the dish is on a tour of Europe organised by Fedex.

The tracking page reads like the travels of the garden gnome from the film ‘Amelie’. London, Paris, Madrid, back to Paris, Cologne, a couple of days in Cologne for some shopping. No news at all about today. Is Thursday a day off in the Fedex-world? No wonder it took them four years to find Tom Hanks 😉 Will my mounting bracket be washed up on some desert island?
