Hey, man. You should try recovering. True story.
@super77m At least you knew where it was going, though that’s not much of a consolation. My tracking has just said it’ll update me when updates come for four days.
I'm signed up to get both texts and emails when a package with tracking gets delivered. Got the messages "Priority Package delivered in/at Mailbox 2:01pm", went outside at 2:02pm and there's nothing in my mailbox, front step or within 20 feet of my house. I can see up/down my street for 2 blocks and there's no USPS mail truck, even drove around the hood and no mail carrier to be seen. And USPS is closed today until Tuesday (Monday holiday). FUCK
ever since usps started surepost tracking has be fucked.
So many gripes to catch up on.
Copying this over from the FU thread:
My last four packages from Royal Mail have been 'delivered' to my house, i.e. leaving the delivery note only, when I could have actually received them. This is just SO frustrating. At least make some sort of attempt for FFS. I am not asking for anything more than normal, expected service here. Because I cannot make it to the post office at all during the week (don't even get me started on a rant for their ridiculous hours here), if I get the delivery slip only I have to go on a Saturday, which I did yesterday, and had to stand in line - outside and in the rain mind - for forty minutes while the queue crawled along at a snail's pace (because, you know, it isn't like parcel delivery picks up in December or anything, and you wouldn't want to possibly have two people working; never mind that I would not be surprised if a good portion of those people were also there due to 'missed but not really' deliveries).
In short, aaarrghh.
Same situation on my end @ultrakaiju; my post office in Brooklyn is useless. Currently waiting on three items that were meant to be delivered before the weekend, and for one of them they haven't even bothered to push the delivery date to next week online.
So USPS says my enamel pins are in Allen Park which isn't to terribly far away from me but the problem is that the items have been stuck in that location for over 4 days now and initially they were supposed to be to my house by Thursday. So here is hoping I at least get my package by Monday?
Holy granola there's actually a thread for this? I guess in this hobby....and in general...I shoulda known!
Thankyou @ultrakaiju for redirecting my commentary! It still blows me away that they so openly screwed with my emotions like that.
Thumbs down to unfortunate toy packaging and/or handling that leads to damage. These are things which, as neither a painted nor vinyl repairer, etc., will be forever 'lost'. I don't treat my toys like museum pieces or anything, nor do I have the bank to invest in crazy hype stuff, but that doesn't also mean it is frustrating when something beautiful is slightly diminished merely due to unfortunate circumstance.
It's all material though, and nothing lasts forever. I certainly won't be taking it with me.
