Default Now comes the hard part... waiting!

I just got a note that my car is scheduled to arrive at Port of Houston on... Cinco de Mayo!

http://forums.audiworld.com/showthread.php?t=2861877

Should I be worried? And it feels like there's an Arrested Development reference trying to claw its way out of this post.

And I can tell it is an online tool because the Spanish is too formal, nothing you would use in a forum.
I hope my English doesn't read/sound too formal

It is sad how so called"mexicans" born in the US (they don't speak Spanish and some of them have never been in Mexico BUT they are mexicans) cherish that made up holiday like it is our 4th of July.
It was a battle Mexico won against the French, that's it, important yes, our Independence Day?not at all.

For those interested (I know Snagitsiete will read it for sure)

Hey everyone, thanks for replies, and yes I was referring to the TV show ‘Arrested Development’... bit of an AD junky I’m afraid. Then feralc & tenspeed linked it back to the Audi event! Very cool!

I’m excited; can’t wait to see my car!

Default Anyone else got a car on the Marina Ace?

My salesperson confirmed my car was loaded on the Marina Ace... and looks like it just reached Halifax today. Getting closer but it'll be at least another week yet before it's unloaded at Houston!
