    It's true. I joke to my wife that the pipes and tobacco tend to get here before I've clicked on the add-to-cart.

    If you order from Al'Pascia the package can travel from Italy to Texas before you even visit the sight. They send you a phone call just before the order arrives to inform you to visit their website and place the order so you're not confused when the postal carrier knocks on your door.

    Fastest for the price for me is Danish Pipe Shop, for 5€ the package arrives to Iceland within 3 days. Second is Brebbia, for 20€ it arrives the next day. Savinelli is 30€, also next day. All the others take 1-2 weeks.

    What Anthony says must be true. I told this story before. Al Pascia has gotta hold the record: from Milan to Chicago, 33 hrs. after I pushed the enter key.

    It still blows my mind that I can order some groceries from Amazon at 8PM on Saturday night, and have them on my porch before I wake up on Sunday morning. Of course pipes aren't this fast, but... expectations are high, ha ha!!

    One item I ordered took thrice as long to get from New York to Maine as it did to get to New York from Poland.

    . . . probably at Customs

    This cartoon tells the story of my life in the logistics business. You'd think every shipment contained human organs. The rush and unreal expectations are awful.

    I ordered a pipe from a vendor in Florida once.

    Fortunately, it took the vendor only 2 hours to get the pipe in the mail (U.S.P.S.). Unfortunately, it spent the next 9 days of its life inside the mail sorting facility at Tampa before it escaped.

    When are they going to get those machines like in the old Star Trek episodes ? When you want something you push a button and it materializes right before your eyes.
