|I asked the 8 ball what I should post on Saturday. Here You Go|
I ordered 5 items from Amazon, glucosamine for canine, and also a bottle for humans, vitamins, you know, over the counter things. Email stated 3 packages on the way, one on Friday, two on Saturday.
Saturday at noon, email arrives from USPS stating:
Attempt to deliver package, no one home, left pink slip in mail box
We were home, no pink slip in mail box, but one package was in mailbox. JOY dog treats.
I check tracking number, find note stating Package left at Bradenton Post Office for Pickup Per Owner instructions.
WHAT? and by the way there are FOUR Bradenton Post offices.
I go to USPS.com and try to pretend I have a pink slip, it will not let me redirect the package without the NUMBER from the PINK slip I don't Have.
I call USPS support, 5 frustrated minutes of poking numbers and it says over an hour wait for service. Gives me option to be called back in over an hour. I choose that option.
90 minutes later, phone rings and it states, we are returning your call, please hold and I hear hold music.. for about 2 minutes, Bob is saying, didn't They Call YOU?
Finally, Teresa offers her services, I explain what I just told you.
She types in the 8 mile long tracking number and says, it say here left at Bradenton Post office, per owner request...…
I repeat for the 2nd time the story told above.
We Were Home. This is a repeat order of OTC vitamins and such and requires no signing.
let me share with you what we think happened.
She laughed until she was breathless and said they are not supposed to do that, but it COULD happen....through her laughter, she said is Monday delivery alright? or do you need it sooner. I said I might survive until Monday without vitamins... more laughter....
It came at noon on Monday and I patted myself on the back for not losing my temper over a box of vitamins. Laughter not temper got my delivery quickly. Plus laughter is good for the soul. I must say, it had been a new camera, or tablet, or DEVICE I might not have been so nice.
