Not a Bomb

Dear Gear 1 Music Sales Department,

I ordered a Seiko DM50 metronome from you last week. This morning at 5:41 a.m., the post office called to say they had a ticking package addressed to me. They were very alarmed, as were my husband and I to hear the phone ring before dawn. Now that the sun is up, it seems more funny, though his Christmas gift will no longer be a surprise—I was shouting “It’s a metronome!” into the receiver.

I won’t see the packaging till the mail comes late today, but in the future, you might consider shipping these units without batteries!

Yours,
Sage R.
