Office Depot is bringing me something today, and they said it would be sometime between 8:30 AM and 7:00 PM. As Daffy says, Thanks for the sour persimmons, buster. At least Safeway gives me a 4-hour window, and if I was willing to pay more I could get a 1-hour window.
(It's a plastic floor mat to go under my desk chair. I've gone through three of those in the last few years, and my current one is a broken mess. This new one is going to be 1/8 inch thick, and I hope it'll hold up better than the others did. They were all thin and flexible. Each time I bought a new one, I thought I was getting something that would last more. The last one was polycarbonate, and it only lasted about 6 months.)
UPDATE: OK, 11:30. Not too shabby, and now I can take a nap.
UPDATE: The new one is much better at producing static electricity. Since it's on the floor next to my computer table, this could be a problem.

Carbon fiber floor tile. Hm. $8.88/square meter...but the smallest order size I saw was 1000 sq meters. Maybe a bit overkill for your situation, though I'd buy a few squares from you!

I had a new clothes washer from Amazon scheduled for delivery between 8:00AM and 12:00PM. They came at 5:00AM.
It was both the best and worst delivery experience I've ever had.
