A short while ago I came home from the grocery store. As I got closer I could see a sticker of some kind on my front door. It couldn't be FedEx with my second-hand HTPC, which isn't due until Saturday, and it *surely* couldn't be DHL with my Pi, as it hasn't even been 7 business days since I placed my order...
So, guess what it was?
Yep! Looking at the details marked on the sticker, DHL had come by just 15 Minutes after I left the house. I've seen this mentioned so many times on the forum that I've decided to call it the 15 Minute DHL Dodge. This is how it works, apparently: On a sooner-than-expected day, DHL detectives arrive at your home and wait for you to leave. They wait exactly 15 minutes then dash up to the door to "attempt" delivery of your Pi, but instead leave their orange sticker. Currently, I don't have the funds to hire a private eye to follow DHL and verify this theory but I'll bet dollars to dounuts it's 1000% True and Factual.
N.B. Before anyone has to wonder, this truly is meant jokingly, as I *did* find it hi-larious, and chuckled about it the entire time I put away the groceries. How could it not be funny? I'll still get my Pi tomorrow! Rawk!! \m/
I sometimes ride my Pi to the Forum.
