Default To mug or not to mug…

Emerald has run out of mugs.

Do I have them ship my new Amicus now, without a mug, or wait ‘a week or so’ for a mug to accompany it?

Decisions, decisions. If this was my first, I’d wait, but I already have two mugs, so I’m inclined to say ‘ship it now’.

Talk about a first-world problem!

What would you do?

Get the guitar and wait for the mug as long as US Customs doesn't hold the mug hostage for an additional $300 ransom....

Aah, that’s the little detail I omitted. They won’t ship the mugs separately due to risk of damage.

Unless you're an inveterate collector of guitar stuff, I'd still go with getting the guitar quam celerrime and bagging the mug...

Hmm, mine showed up broken. I glued it back together.

My thinking exactly. Mug bagged.

Hope the UPS guy understands Latin.

I am waiting for the mug. They are cool and I don’t have a problem waiting another week.

I'd wait for the mug! If you decide to sell the emerald down the road, you can keep the mug as a keepsake of that guitar.

Given the situation, I'd ask for a free guitar rather than a mug--that could be shipped on its own.

I like the way you think. Maybe I’ll run that one by Davy K.

Maybe

Since you're getting an Amicus, I thought a little gratuitous Latin was in order...
