Why did THIS one go missing?

December 23rd, 2008 at 07:15 am

Just a little vent this morning.

One of my dear friends has had a tough year. She's had her hours and pay cut, and she's been bounced around from job to job within her organization. She just recently failed a major exam she needed to move forward with her credentials. She sounds so sad this year.

We don't normally exchange gifts, but I found a beautiful lapel pin to send her for Christmas. I mailed it December 13 and it has still not arrived at her house- she only lives 250 miles away. It should have been there well before now.

Of the boxes I shipped, why that box? It was only $20 so I didn't insure it. Looks like my friend is not getting her beautiful pin and I'm out $25 (with shipping). What a bummer. :^(

    Well, that sucks!!

    I wouldn't write it off as lost. USPS is terrible here and things often go amiss for 3-4 weeks. & that is non-Christmas season. I can't tell you how many things have taken a month to go a few miles, but never lost anything. So, let's hope that it shows up. (Maybe UPS next time?)

    I agree that it may still show up. I've had Priority Mail packages take as long as 3 weeks to reach their destination.

    I am sure it will turn up!! Maybe for some reason it's taking a "tour" of extra post offices!! When it does arrive at your friend's it may be just the exact day that it will lift her spirits the most. Best wishes.

    I once mailed something from my home in Philadelphia to another location in Philadelphia. It took quite a while to arrive. When it did, it had been postmarked in Harrisburg, PA, which is 100 miles away from Philly. Sometimes items travel cross-country and back when they are misrouted.

    Okay, I will try to be optimistic that it will turn up eventually. We did have an unusual snow storm here last week that pretty much shut down the post office for 2 days (not much snow, they just don't deal well with it here in CA). I figured it would probably have been pretty close to its destination before the snow (she's on the coast where it doesn't snow), but with holiday mail and so forth, maybe it is just taking its sweet time. Maybe it will get there, and before Christmas. Fingers crossed!
