    i just got an email from the guy.  he asked if i sent it.  i sent it on the 3rd!!

    apparently, it is lost in the mail.  i checked on the 6th, and there was an attempted delivery, but no one was home..they left a notice on the door.  i figured i was done, and i tossed the tracking number.

    i guess someone got a free badlands..just not the guy i wanted to get it.  crap.  somethings go sideways in a hurry.

    Go back to the place you sent it from they should have you on file. I know UPS does.  Good luck

    USPS isn’t the best delivery service. I usually pay more for UPS service and get it delivered sooner and no worries.

    i’m over it.

    the recipient isnt very responsive.  i figured a two man attack on the post office would be our best bet.  he wont reply to me.

    whatever.

    i spent way too much time on the phone and at the PO i dropped it off at.¬† blew half a day.¬† i tried.¬† i figure “somebody” got a free pack :D

    Two person attack would be best.  Without your tracking number it makes it tougher to locate.   If it was attempted then the search needs to be done at the receiving office.  Sending offices sometimes are lazy and not much help because they feel that they have done their job and the problem is on the other end.  Go online and file a complaint on the usps.com website.  They must respond in 24 hours or risk getting in trouble from their district office.   It forces the receiving office to respond to you back with some kind of answer.  You can even force them to do a mail recovery center search.  This is what is commonly called a dead letter office.  Online complaints create a paper trail the has to be dealt with.  Phone calls can go in one ear and out the other.  Hope this helps.

    I’m glad it showed up but it took way to long. ¬†I work for USPS and hate to hear of bad experiences with them.

    i love the USPS.  best bargain ever.

    i share the responsibility on this one.¬† i should have never lost the tracking number.¬† those “anything” that fits boxes..i love them.¬† i love printing the labels online..if i had done that this time..i would have had the tracking number emailed to me..but this time i used my own HUGE box.

    lessoned learned.  all shippers lose things.  UPS broke  a rifle of mine..in half.
