Is This Bad Luck Catching?
« on: January 30, 2018, 02:42:55 PM »
My areas' post office is developing some bad habits.  When a package is received at the regional distribution center, which is about 6 miles from my home and 7 from my post office.  They send it on.  Somewhere.  They have sent them north as far as 20 miles away, then back to the center, then to my post office then to me at a day a segment after the estimated delivery.  They have sent them as far as the state line 300 miles away.  Todays' parcel went to the center, to an adjacent towns' post office and was sent back today, hopefully to go back to my post office, then to my home.  That is a lot of bouncing around for a $25 vacuum tube.  There is no resemblance in the place names, though the zips all begin 302.

So, does that mean we may now know where the employees who once worked at OPA LOCKA ended up?

No, I think the Cliff Clavin Convention was in town that day. They're headquartered in Florida...he almost moved there, you know! ;D

I hope not, I could live without this aggravation.

I have yet to receive a set of dial cards I ordered.  In tracking them, I discovered they left California on January 17th and have not been scanned since then.  They are supposed to be on their way to Lawrence, Kansas which is where I live,  but I haven't seen then yet.

That'd be about the time I would contact the seller/sender and advising them their shipment has hit the rocks.

I finally received it about a week after I posted my complaint in this thread.
