Default not a bad thing to wait...and wait....and wait some more.

i saw this on craigslist and it sat and sat and sat. seller lowered the price and still, it sat and sat and sat further. i contacted the seller he sent me an email to call him because it was a pain in the ass for him to text on his particular phone. i procrastinated for a few weeks and it was still there. granted, his pic was not the best, but it was clear enough for my purposes.

so, yesterday, i finally call him, we meet up and this is what came back to the office with me.



it's hard to see through the crystal and my crappy pic, but it has one of the best, matching dial and hand sets i've seen in a while. he was a very cool, hippy looking dude who was wearing round lensed glasses ala john lenon. we got to chatting then he showed me the A/P that he had on his wrist! who would have guessed?!

i missed out on the "dial"; so, i guess this is my consolation prize =]

Ha! I’ve been in similar situations... only it ended being sold and me upset after the fact, wondering why I waited so long :P

Congrats on the score!

Patience is a virtue Larry and it looks like it paid off for you
