I find it interesting how conditioned we as a society... and as individuals... have become to the expectation of instant gratification... no reflection on @ExtraitdeMinimalist ... his post just happened to be the catalyst for me to write what I had been thinking for a while.My custom SJ’s have shipped!! Don’t know what to think after 6 long weeks
Six weeks seems interminable to many people to have to wait for a pair of custom boots. During fire season, or when things are slow, the wait can stretch as long as 10 weeks. I once waited 16 weeks for a pair of Wesco Boots.
Yet before the era of Wal-Mart, Target, and Amazon Prime same day delivery, people expected to have to wait for goods, especially custom goods. Who else remembers the Sears Wish Book? You would order something simple... something Amazon can deliver in 2 hours, and then wait a week or two for it to come into the local Sears store where you would have to go pick it up...
It seems like the world has gone and gotten itself in one big hurry... the best things in life take time, and waiting builds character, but even I have found myself getting annoyed when my "Two Day" Amazon order took three or (gasp) four days due to COVID... I have to remind myself that it is not always good to get everything you want immediately.
On the other hand, perhaps I am just becoming a curmudgeon in my 40's...
