Back from posting hiatus, I guess it's been, because of a story I think is fun. And a chance to give a 'Meranom treated me right' post.
Bought a piece for a woman I've been seeing (have divorced since joining WUS). She'd previously dated a wis. (They are friends, apparently he saw a pic of me and said "Old guys are ruining G-Shocks" but we'll let that crack go...)
So I wanted to show off my love of Vostok, see if she was familiar with Russian pieces.
Purchase was May 10. Hasn't arrived.
Dmitry at Meranom has been in touch with me, and the package tracked in Russia post. Just hadn't shown up. I thought customs, got lost, whatever. Not that much money (big part of the love, for me), maybe it'll show up yet, but I was beginning to lose hope.
This morning I awake to an email from Dmitry. The package had been returned, from a previous address, an earlier purchase.
All the way back to Chistapol? Ha! Now I feel bad for causing trouble! Now the watch has a story attached with it! I'm tickled as a little kid.
Thanks Dmitry! Thanks Meranom! I'll start looking for the piece to arrive again!
