    lousy money grubbers!

    so $20 cad is the maximum import value before taxes.
    but $20 usd = $25.55 cad and the canadian government wants their $3.07 in taxes.
    oh and don't forget to tack on the $9.95 fee you bunch of a-holes >(

    So I go to this local mom and pop place i like to eat.
    walk in, big sign says sit down isn't available today as they are repairing the floors, and to go is available. I'm like sweet, I am getting it to go anyways.

    the lady finally comes up to me and is like can i help you. i'm like yeah i'd like to make a to go order, she's all didn't you read the sign? I'm like yes, it says to go orders are available. she's all what are you having. I'd like the chicken pie lunch plate. (chicken pie with gravy on top, mashed potatoes and gravy, 2 biscuits with butter) She's like we aint got no tatters, the steam table is down didn't you read the sign (sign says nothing about this. simply says no dine in, but take out available) I'm like okay, i can work without the potatoes, i'll just order the chicken pie a la cart, it does have gravy on top right? STEAM TABLE IS DOWN DIDNT YOU HEAR. umm. I'm sorry, I don't even know what the hell a steam table is. But I suggest you just close up entirely for the day, as you can't even offer to go orders of your menu (this place is called the chicken pie shop, so i'll give you a guess as to what they are known for)... she aggrevated me so much, not sure when i will be back.

    Fuppin' Mexican Post. Last time i had something posted to the UK from Mexico it took a month.
    I thought maybe this time it might of been a bit quicker.

    Dec 29, 2017 05:19 pm
    Deposited in bag and sent to the destination country office part Correos de Mexico

    Even with a tracking number i have no idea. The parcel left Mexico on the 29th last year,
    and its dropped into a black hole it seems. The tracking ends there and Royal Mail at my
    end are waiting for it. Sometimes, tracking numbers are useless.

    I'm hoping it will take a month again, and its not lost. 3 standard sized Bear Model, dammit :x

    I honestly think that's the only word that is strong enough to fit the bill.
    Guy must have burned so many Christmas cards and gifts between family members... I just can't deal with the thought of heartbroken kids wondering where their gifts have gone, ughhh.

    I usually only go there for breakfast, but have enjoyed the pot pies on numerous occasions. Another place with killer pot pies is the Berrock Shop on Bullard and West. You can get unbaked ones to take home and cook 'em up so they're nice and hot!

    So, my package took a month to arrive from Mexico, which was frustrating but what i had expected. The icing on the cake was what the UK post did to it over here. The postman 'delivered' a clear plastic bag with what looked like a dark brown lump of indeterminate shape inside. It took further inspection to realise it was the parcel I'd been waiting for - inside the plastic bag was the near-pulped remains of a soaking wet cardboard box. It fell apart in my hands when i started to check if the toys were OK.

    Thankfully I collect Sofubi which is pretty tough stuff and is waterproof. I have to assume that the parcel was left out in the rain, or some fucking idiot dropped it in a swimming pool.

    No apologies, no explanation. Here's your pulped lump of a parcel in a waterlogged plastic bag.

    The Royal fucking Mail, ladies and gentlemen . . . .

    Hopefully they were mindful enough to charge you an import tax, though!

    Anyone not having packages delivered by their expected dates, and just getting hit with delays and you'll get updated tracking when available? I was supposed to have prints delivered Wednesday and a package sent from someone here on Thursday, and they both have the delayed message. Not only that, but I noticed several others from Arizona experiencing the exact same thing. I'm still getting mail like letters and trash ads sent, but none of my parcels.

    I wonder if it had anything to do with the brief govt shutdown? Last time my stuff was delayed was during the OTHER govt shutdown, and the message on the USPS was the same... basically "this has been delayed, we'll give you more info when available" with no real explanation.

    @hellointerloper Possibly? I got a package on Monday with zero issues. I’m most perplexed by getting my mail just fine, but it’s parcels that won’t get to me.

    Just found out a package from China is meant to take a minimum of one month to arrive. I paid about $100 for EMS and assume the seller pocketed the difference. Very frustrating.

    i shipped a 2 day priority package USPS to Nevada, got tracking updates 3x a day as it inched across state lines. 5 days later it was in Nevada out for delivery. Sweet. Flash forward to the next tracking update and the package is on it's way to florida. It lingered in florida for a week while I emailed the post office and asked WTF was it doing in Florida. I suppose it took a much needed vacation, as eventually it did return to Nevada for delivery after another week.

    True story. One time the post office ate my baby. I never really recovered.
