Bit of a rush job turns up today. Late in the day but need some tools, so get on the blower to UK sales office of Sandvik Coromant. "Yep, no problem items in stock in Sweden, you can have them in the morning. Delivery by UPS" . (UPS normally usually deliver around 10.30 ish)

Nothing really unusual about this I suppose, but I still find it pretty incredible that I can order tools from Sweden at 5.00pm and they can be in my hand here in England by 10.30am the next day. Picked, packed, shipped and delivered to a customer in another country overnight. The world is indeed a small place.

BTW just as an aside, the woman answering the phone in Halesowen, England had an interesting accent - she was from San Francisco. She'd met some bloke on the Internet and emigrated to be with him. :eek:
