    Whats the longest time you've had to wait for something you ordered to finally be delivered

    My record is 12 Months...
    12 Months ago I ordered this Hearthstone Necklace from popspree. it was free I just had to pay shipping,
    I thought oh cool cheap things so I paid the shipping and a few weeks later it said it had been shipped.
    Well after waiting maybe a month or two the item never arrived so I filed a dispute with paypal and after about a week I was refunded my money

    Fast forward 12 monthes to today and the item just miraculously arrived in the mail I am just "wat"ting so hard right now

    Let us know the longest time you had to wait

    Between insane and insecure
    3 months waiting for my DSTwo to get to my house. I know it was from China, but damn did it take forever

    A month and a half to get Gurren Lagann Complete Blu-ray Edition
    I imported it from Amazon's UK Site.

    in contrast, getting some posters from Japan from some eBay sellers located in Japan only takes me on average 12-18 days.

    this is the reason I am glad I got my r4i Gold, DSTwo,EZFlash IV, and Gateway cards from realhotstuff (U.S. Site, not the HK Site), it is a shame they are not around anymore.

    i think my r4 took almost two weeks to arrive, but i'm not sure, as it was a while ago. Also a recent order i did on amazon took 10 days, which felt like forever for me lol
