Can anyone else relate to "that" feeling of waiting for an order and having it arrive/opening it? I swear it's like Christmas for men. I've got 3 or 4 items showing up in the next week and it's the only time I go check my mailbox daily. I can't be the only one!? HuhTongue

Oh yeah. To the nth degree for awhile. I was so addicted to "that feeling" and ordering and bidding on so much that I was sending half of it to the next block to my mothers old house to lessen the stress between my wife and I.

I have my stuff sent to my office. Then the challenge is getting it into the house without her noticing it, then using it without a noticeable increase in products. My wife is so observant that my hunch is that she notices a new soap or razor on the countertop, only doesn't mention it unless she sees a new package entering the house. Who knows, she probably orders things for "that feeling" just as I do.

It is not the mailbox I check. I check tracking numbers. Even though I know what day the package is suppose to be delivered, I check the tracking number two to three times per day. Maybe I think if I keep tracking it, it will show up sooner.

My oldest son told me he sent me a surprise package and gave me the tracking number and I tracked it from his house to mine. What he did not tell me was that the box was empty. He just wanted to mess with my tracking mind.

He is just trying to make sure his old man doesn't get bored! Laughing1

I just tracked a package of LPL coming from bullgoose to mysaelf in Canada and then go all the way back to him... iggest disappointment ever as far as watching tracking goes. It was my fault, I entered my address wrong. This must be the most traveled LPL ever though! From France (right?) to the states, to Canada, to the States and to Canada again.

That would be horrible! At least you'll get it in the end. Did you get the scented or unscented? I've had both and have just the unscented now. Great performer!

I got the scented. I'm an excess is best type, the more scent the better. I'm pretty excited to get it actually, I hope it can share a top shelf position beside my MDC.

* Oh, it will do that, easily! It is a great soap and since you like the MdC scent, this will be fine, also, I believe.

I really think it will. It really is a great soap that lives up to the hype. The scented was a little strong for me but so was the regular of MdC. Lather and slickness are awesome.

there's about a twenty step staircase to get to the mail box at my house, whenever I have a package incoming every day becomes a leg day workout

It's so true Shane when I get home today a package from Krissy should be at my doorstep waiting and I can't wait.

It always picks my spirits up when I'm down knowing I have a shaving package coming. Am I crazy or am I just enjoying my OCD.

The responses are hilarious! My wife is in the "just laughing at me" stage right now. I'm sure I'll have to use some of the different delivery tactics soon.

This is me on the tracking numbers. Can you say obsesive/compulsive?

One of my favorite moments is opening the box and smelling whatever scent escaped from the soap wafting up towards me.

Next favorite moment is digging through the packing peanuts to find a brush and carefully extracting the lil one from its week long bed.
