    Damnit i got an alert that it went out on the truck this morning at 8am

    worked the entire day beating the refresh button on the UPS site like it attacked my mom

    now im home, still no delivery. And its a windy night so i keep hearing noises ... im at the window every 10min lol

    I feel like a giddy school girl! Which is odd, because im an old man ha

    sheeeeesh i wish i could call this guy and find out where he is, so i can sign for it off his truck

    wow i posted this, then my doorbell rang ... ITS HERE!!!! My Official Red Ryder Carbine-Action Two-Hundred-Shot Range Model Air Rifle! Oops, i mean my PRIME!!!

    So i ripped the packaging apart like a bear, and plugged it in .. forcing myself to walk away. Didnt i read on here to charge for 8hrs before playing with it? IS IT TRUE???

    Plus it has to thaw out lol .. it was on the truck and is FREEZING! The glass is like frosted lol

    I've always thought they should be able to offer some kind of service to give people a better idea of their delivery times...like letting us have a few hours or so window based on the truck's route that day. OR even letting us spot the truck on a map. Wishful thinking but that'd be pretty sweet.

    Hey, if they want us to feel comfortable that their drivers aren't goofing off after those incidents this holiday season, they shouldn't have a problem with that right? :)

    When I got mine I plugged it in and it turned on. It had about 20% charge. I mesed with it for about 5 minutes then turned it off and went to work. I dont see why you cant play with it while it charges.

    It says right on the UPS page that residential deliveries are delivered sometime in the afternoon. Mine got delivered around the same time 1620. Business deliveries happen mostly during the morning. And home deliveries in the afternoon/night, mostly because they don't want the packages sitting at your porch for a long time if nobody is at home and everybody is either at school or at work.

    Also, it helps that I have gotten about 20 packages from UPS for the past two months or so. I know that the night before, they arrive at the closest sort facility (5 miles away), and then they get dispatched around 0800. And I get my packages around 1630-1800.

    rsarno, that was hilarious! Glad you finally got it. Looking forward to hearing what you think about it.

    I've pretty much come to realize that the UPS driver for my neighborhood usually comes through around 3:30-4:00pm, but also sometimes as late as 6:00 or 6:30.

    With that said, I'm planning on getting off work at 4 this afternoon so I can get my grubby little hands on my Prime as soon as I can. :D

    Glad to see you got your Prime! Those UPS guys are hard at it but it does seem like forever when you are expecting a package!
