It's taking too long!!

It's been 9 days now and it's still not arrived .... I have no idea how I am going to get through this wait....

This week in order to pass time I have:
1. Got really ill, spent most of the week sleeping and vomiting. My wife told me I was clearly allergic to spending thousands of pounds.

2. Got a new iPhone3G, but even with that excitement the days are still only plodding by.

I need the days to go quicker! .... what was that my Grandma used to say about wishing your life way?

If you're this messed right now just wait until about 2 months have gone by! Or better yet, when you have updated info that its been:
A) In the Factory order bank
B) In production
C) Waiting for inspection
D) Being transported
E) Arrived at port
F) Arrived at Dealer

I'm waiting for E and F, and it's driving me mad!!! I only have about 2 ~ 3 weeks more to wait and it's getting worse every day. :) Soon...

Congrats on the new car coming your way. I too am in the same boat. I find myself looking at wheels, exhaust, etc. To pass the time by faster, but it just makes me want my car faster...lol.

Got an update last week saying my car is currently in "Final Assembly" .... in my head that means they are putting the wheels on and then that's it.

Was gutted this morning driving to work, I drove past a 58 plate A5 in Black .... I want mine!!

I was nosing round the forecourt of Bexley Audi this afternoon and I'm pretty sure I saw your A5. All I can say is very, very nice! Enjoy when you take delivery.

Possibly you could have seen my car, I am picking her up on Thursday after I get back from a business trip Wednesday night. Looks like you got to see her before me after all!!
