    ...and you’re nervously tracking the package hoping it arrives by Friday so you can bring it in the house before your wife is home and sees it.

    I ordered the Vanquest JAVELIN 3.0 VSlinger Slingpack Left-Shoulder Coyote Tan and paid extra for shipping but now it looks like it won’t arrive until Saturday and she will see it before I bring it in. Wish me luck LOL

    Man I know that feeling! Good luck lol. Ordered a Vertx Transit 2.0 and was hoping it would be in by Monday before I left to come work out of town Tuesday, but it was delayed and came in yesterday, so she had to get it. I told her not to open it in case I had to return it

    Whatcha do when you order something and waiting for it. Your girlfriend orders you something your not supposed to know about. And......her package arrives first, you open it thinking it was your's, then your sitting here trying to figure out how your gonna seal it back up.

    I was caught glancing at backpacks as we walked through a store.

    A few weeks later, for my birthday, I was gifted a new backpack from that store. And I'm required to use it every day.

    1. Ship to work.
    2. Most carriers allow you to have the package held at the depot for pickup up to the day of delivery.
    3. Set up a gear sling in the front yard tree and wait for the delivery man in a ghillie suit. Retrieve package after the S.O. has gone to sleep.
    ATB,
    Sam

    Ok so she saw it first on Saturday - as I expected. It didn’t go bad at all. She just laughed and shook her head. And I had to buy her a new jacket at a leather/fur coat store that is closing until the fall and had 40-60% off. It’s summer time ...I don’t have that kind of patience. I buy a new coat when it’s cold so I can wear it out of the store! But if she’s happy I’m happy

    My rule is always ship to the office, prevention is always better than cure although I buy her small stuff her and there as a precaution before she notices another bag and with so many of it that I use alternately , the new arrival is less noticeable, we'll, nothing beats the thrill of opening the box and checking the delivery progress, it's like adrenaline slowly injected.

    I'm on disability so I'm here all the time, I sign for all the mail. She had to come clean because it was in my name. She got in my amazon account to look at my wish list to order me something I wanted. She forgot she was logged into my account when she ordered. We both got a good laugh out of it.

    Still teasing her, basically I ordered and paid for my own anniversary gift.

    And yes she knows my amazon password. She is bumming my amazon prime video but I bum off her netflix.
