My M80s are on a FedEx truck somewhere.

The email from Noreen said "Post tales of the agony of waiting on our Message Boards". Lame, I thought at first. But it's true, it is very agonizing. My biggest worry is the horrible things that FedEx might do to my new babies.

You'll need to inspect the port holes when they arrive...

Thanks for soothing my paranoia. Not! shocked

I have no idea what to look for when inspecting the ports.

I've heard stories of FedEx employees flogging the speakers with chains, kicking them around and dragging them behind the trucks.

That helps. I will now be happy if they deliver something that is not a crumpled ball of sawdust.

I heard something about a new episode of "Will it blend?" being filmed in Manchester, I think.

You need not worry, FedEx is the best in the business. They treat all packages with expert care.

They have arrived. Unscathed, as far as I can tell.
Agony turned into frustration due to lack of speaker wire.
