World's first ballpoint fountain pen

Hbkjhkjklj

From the website:

    World's Only Ballpoint Fountain Pen

    This dual-tipped brass pen provides the proper writing implement for formal penmanship or informal shorthand in one device.

    The fountain tip has a pointed steel nib that flawlessly deposits a fine stream of ink onto the writing surface and won't scrape the page, allowing smooth handwriting without requiring excessive force.

    The ballpoint tip allows fluid writing, ideal for business meeting notations or casual correspondence.

    The pen's barrel and cap are wrapped in European calf leather meticulously hand-stitched and embossed with an alligator pattern, ensuring optimal comfort and a confident grip.

    Includes a gift box, eight refills for the ballpoint and six refills for the fountain.

    5-3/4" H x 2/3" W.

$69.95.

Why UPS is better than FedEx

139220077socgzp_ph

So I'm at my neighborhood Seven-11 last Friday buying my junk food du jour and after making my selections and walking back out to my car, notice a big UPS truck parked near me.

I unlock my car and start to get in when I notice the UPS driver emerging from the back of the truck with two small packages.

"Hey," I say, 'cause it's my local driver, whom I see about three times a week, most often with stuff from Amazon.

He walks over to me and says "These are for you."

Huh?

He then tells me he recognized my car in the lot as he was approaching the store and figured I must be there so why not save a trip out to my house?

There's something to be said in favor of living in a Podunk town.
