Tim Arheit sent me some queens from Ohio out here to the edge of the known world, also known as Oregon, by Priority Mail. He has sent to me before with out any problems. This time, they can't seem to get out of Detroit. Yes, I know that Priority Mail is not guaranteed to be there in 2 - 3 days. Still, since it is flown, it should have made it here by now.
Here is from the USPS tracking:
Processed through Sort Facility, August 17, 2010, 9:42 am, DETROIT, MI 48242
Processed through Sort Facility, August 13, 2010, 5:06 pm, DETROIT, MI 48242
Electronic Shipping Info Received, August 11, 2010
So I called the PO, after going through a couple of phone numbers and voice mail heck, I get to a live person who opens an issue and tells me that some one can call be back in two days who will know more about what happened and did I want them to call me or not? Duh!
So I'm sure hoping that they've had a great time in Detroit and are still alive whenever they get here.
I want to swear up a storm. There is no excuse for this. They even told me that for the way they were shipped, the tracking doesn't mean anything or do anything. So maybe they aren't even in Detroit, MI. I think they would have gotten here quicker my regular mail. Yeck, media mail gets her quicker than this. I'm beginning to think that this is a racket by the USPS to get people to use the Express Mail. "If we foul up enough, we can get people to pay three or more times as much for the service they should get anyway. Suckers!"
Just had to vent, thanks for listening.
