Sorry, I don't mean for it to be scathing in any way, but I have to go to work and likely get exposed, but you may not have to. I just think we should think about the risk to others. Again congrats, but I felt like I had to mention that.

I'll also add that I don't know where you live and what the rules for travel were, but I wanted to make a more general point.

Both points valid - for context I am not in North America and commercial flights were available. Secondly I had already been in quarantine for 2 weeks as I had been in Europe. Thirdly with 15 odd people on the flight spaced many metres apart I felt social distancing was in place.

The prime reason I did the flight was I really cannot predict whether full lockdown was going to happen and as I had paid for the watch in full I was nervous about ever actually getting it. They would not courier it either

So while the points are valid it was not done glibly and without risk considerations.
