Uneasy feeling

Hope I'm just being paranoid.

I shipped a diaper just before Christmas from Canada to the US.
I shipped when payment was received/cleared as agreed upon.
This morning I received a pm and was tagged along with another lady saying she pmed us.
This is what it said.
" Did you ship this diaper???!!!"

Am I probably being paranoid?

I know it's hard to read tone but this feels accusatory to me.

Re: Uneasy feeling

No, I think she was really just curious on if you shipped it or not! Sometimes things can take a couple weeks from Canada to US and with the Holidays (past and upcoming), I wouldn't worry until it gets to the 2 week mark possibly.
I'm sure she'll get her diaper mama! Don't worry just yet!

Re: Uneasy feeling

i think she probably just wanted to know if you shipped or not yet. Did you message her after you shipped to say you had done so? i dont think shes accusing you of anything, she probably just wants to get a better idea of when to expect her diaper

im guessing its only been a week or so since you mailed it right? its not unusual for things to take 2-4 weeks (or more during the busy holiday time) to get there

I can understand why you feel that way with all the exclamation points. I would feel the same way.

I sent a Diaper from the US to Canada on the 17th and it isn't there yet either so I wouldn't worry about it yet.

Re: Uneasy feeling

This is why I only ship from the US, even though I live in Canada. A week before I know I'll be making the trip down to the States, I list my FS items, stating that I will ship on x date. Then, once I get there, I send my items via first class or Priority. Much, much faster, cheaper and more reliable than shipping across the border, and no concern of customs delays.

Of course, not everyone is able to cross the border to ship, but if it is practical for you, it is a much better option.

Re: Uneasy feeling

It has an accusatory vibe to me, with all the extra exclamation points and ? marks. She's not going to get it until mid-late January. I'd tell her it's going to take around 4 weeks with the holiday and if she has a fit, get a mod involved.

I would feel very put off by the extra punctuation.

I would reply "yes I did it is coming from Canada so please be patient with the mail, especially around the holidays! "
