I can understand that theory, but she stressed that she needed it ASAP and drove all the way from Virginia to get it. She chose to do without it to save on the tax. She also is under the assumption that she'll get it tomorrow. I told her there's no guarantee but she'll likely call tomorrow saying she needs it.

Maybe once I've learned a few tricks on this board, I'll understand her decision more. Right now, I'm confused.


So how far did she drive? Is it possible that she could have saved anoth $5 or so by calling and ordering rather that driving. Funny how people never seem to take that into account.
