Early September I had ordered roof windows to be delivered at the end of week 42 or start of week43 in October.
Last Monday I got the "gut feeling" the windows might be delivered earlier, so I called the seller, just asking. The guy said no, according to his database the items will be delivered not earlier than coming Friday night. Okay, I said to myself, so it was only wishful thinking on my side. But then ...

Well, imagine what happened. the next morning, on last Tuesday, a friendly lady called me and said the windows have arrived, I can come and pick them up. I thought WOW! How did I know without knowing? So, I had gotten the right message before, even before it was updated in the database.
