    Yeah so i'm sitting here browsing the forums and i hear a truck in the dirveway. The front says fedex, so my heart starts pounding and i jump up to grab the door. Well the driver comes to the door with a huge box and says becareful its heavy. So i am like wow this phone is alot bigger than i thought it was going to be. Heh.

    Turns out it was the dog food my wife orders online. So i'm standing there with a box of dog food and he drives away. I look at the box and it says Fedex Home Delivery (basically fedex ground). And my heart beat goes back to normal. Well needless to say i'm back here browsing the forums, and waiting for my little box to arrive.

    Oh well back to jumping anytime i hear a noise in the driveway ;) I did get a nice little boost of adrenaline though, it definately wakes you up, better than coffee anyday!

    I'm sure the guy was alittle shocked to be greeted by a guy in shorts and a cubs t-shirt with his hair messed up and eyes half open grinning from ear to ear, but hey. Then i stand there with a box of dog food looking dejected while he drives away. Good times.

    Update (11:59am): Ok my bad Fedex Ground and Fedex Home Delivery are 2 seperate trucks. I know because Fedex Ground just dropped off another package for my wife. This time the box was about the same size as the one i am expecting. Of course it was a repeat of the same situation described above, but this time when i seen her name on the box it took less time for my heartbeat to get back to normal.

    Ok the 3rd times the charm, its gotta be. I don't know how many more Fedex Trucks are in this area, but seemingly they've all got my house on their route before the Fedex Express truck!

    Addional News & Info: Since waking up this morning the wind has been getting stronger and stronger and is sounding like a truck pulling into the driveway about every 2 minutes. I just checked weatherbug on my ipod touch and it says we are under a wind advisory with gusts upto 50 mph. My luck the truck will tip over 1/2 mile from my house and land on my phone. I hope the driver will be ok, i just hate to break it to him its my luck that caused all this, heh.

    Update 3:50pm: Well the fedex truck showed up about an hour ago, i would have posted an update earlier but i have been playing with my new toy :) Anyhow this phone is everything i hoped it would be, i am so glad to finally have this puppy in my hands now. I'm listening to the cubs game as i type this, they are down by alot so i'm not too hopeful for a win today. Ahh well a day in the life of a cubs fan ;)

    Conclusion: My journey has finally ended. The screen protector has been applied, the clear case is on, and my 1750 seidio droid eris battery is fully charged and installed. My 16gb memory stick is in the slot and life couldn't be better!

    Yeah it always been that way. Fedex ground or home delivery was actually airborne express before fedex bought them and made them their ground freight service. Thats why theres a fedex express and fedex ground/home delivery in the same area. The worst part is they both come from different hubs so if you have an express package and ground shows up you are out of luck and vice versa.

    Yes it was a funny sight i wish i had a video camera taping it. We have 2 ankle biter dogs that don't weigh but 15 lbs each, soak and wet with boots on, and me sniffing and scratching at the door until he opens it up and tells us all to settle down. But the good thing is the dog food tastes great and is healty for my coat ;)

    Updated the original post, to reflect the changes so far during the day. Still no phone and still jumping up at every whim. My neck is starting to get sore, i may have to go lay down ;)

    This was a cute story :)
    sounds vaguely familar of someone i know(myself)
    everytime i order something...

    I set my clock to 8 in the morning and sit around waiting till usually 11
    so i dont miss them.

    I remember one time when i had order a phone from verizon
    i had fell asleep waiting and woke up with the "came by and you weren't here, be back tomorrow" sticker
    and was soo bummed lol
