Sad Story

My Parker Sonnet, which I love so much, is on its way to France (!) for … repairs?!

Last week, I noticed it was leaking. At first, I thought it was just me … that I hadn’t inserted the feed properly after flushing, or something like that. However, after several attempts and explorations, I noticed the leak was located at metal ring in the grip section, just where you insert the feed/nib.

Went into the seller’s website and it turned out they only allowed fifteen days return. I’d had my pen for thirty days exactly. Contacted them, and they told me to send it in, which I did the same day. I sent it from here in Atlantic Canada to them in Ontario.

Then I contacted them again to find out what the procedure was and how long it would take. Bear in mind, this is my favourite, darling Sonnet we’re talking about! In spite of owning beautiful Pelikans and others, this is my goto pen and love. The kind lady there, explained it would be sent to France! Yes! France, Europe! From there back to Ontario and then, eventually back to me in Atlantic Canada. I have no idea when I will see it again.

I’m sad.
