When you live in a small isolated place you have to get used to waiting. Because a lot of items we need are not available locally, we have to order them on the internet, then wait, and wait, and wait. The websites brag of “same day or two day” delivery, but I would be happy getting one week delivery, if they could do it.
Recently something happened to the port on my iPhone, preventing me from charging it. I tried different cables, but the problem seems to be in the port. Luckily I figured out a solution; since my phone can be charged wirelessly, all I needed to do was get myself a wireless charger. I scanned the internet to find the store that I thought could get it to me the quickest, and ordered it.
After I placed the order, they sent me a link so I could track my order’s progress in getting to me. It was delivered to Canada Post in Richmond, BC (near Vancouver) and I watched with dismay as it sat there for a week. All this time I was without the use of my phone, so I was overjoyed when it finally arrived. I made a special trip to the Post Office to pick it up.
I opened the small package and to my total dismay discovered that Apple doesn’t include a plug-in to an electric socket, just the cable, which had an odd-ball C-USB port, something I don’t have, so basically the charger is useless until I can get an adaptor. I called Vincent, our local computer guy, but unfortunately he had just sold the last adaptors he had, and had just put in an order for some more, so I suspect it will be at least another week (if I am lucky) before he gets them in, so I guess I am back to waiting, waiting, waiting.
