Exclamation Slow service or lost packages?

I have been waiting for 3 different fluffy packages from 3 different people. One is some SEZ pockets from a mama here, one is NEW SEZ from Ruth at SEZ and one is my PW that I wont LAST Friday (the 14th) in her stock. Where are they? They all three should have been here last Wed or Thursday and they haven't come

I called my PO to ask what I can do because what is odd is that things that were mailed AFTER tham have come, but these 3 packages are MIA. I can't imagine all 3 of them are lost, but stranger things have happend The PO said they won't do any kind of tracking until 14 days since they were mailed have passed. Ugh. She said they estimate 3-5 days, but don't guarantee anything for less than 14 days, even with Priority! So what's the point in spending the extra money! Stupid PO!

Please reassure me they aren't lost! I'll be so sad and that's a lot of money gone!

Yeah, the PO has been ticking me off lately too, although they have yet to lose any of my fluff! ( I just dare them! ) But a couple of weeks ago, I Priority Mailed a BD card to my dad on a Tuesday to get there by Saturday and he didn't get it until the following Wednesday! I was so ticked! So I am sure they will come, sounds like the PO everywhere has been super s l o w !

I honestly believe that its the post office. I was just talking to a lady yesterday that told me that not only is the post office slow, but the banks have been running slower, too. It took one of my checks 3 1/2 weeks to clear! I dunno if its the summer months or what, but I'd give them more time.

Aww! I hope you get them! I can't imagine how I would feel if a package of mine got lost! I think I'd die.

Re: Slow service or lost packages?

my stuff is very erratic. i have had some packages get "stuck" in the system and take forever to get here and then others from the same place/person etc. go right through. i know they went through an EXTREMELY slow patch back in April/May - everyone was talking about it. i agree - give them more time - i don't think they're lost just slow in coming.

I hear ya! I have the same thing. The Mama said she mailed them out on a Wed. and this will be 2 weeks. This is from the West Coast. Another Mama in a West Coast state, sent me something and it only took a couple days.

Weird things happening for me to. I've received packages mailed on Friday from three different states and got them today but have not yet received a package mailed on Thursday within my own state an hour away. I could have walked there and back 3 times now and gotten them sooner! I'm just praying that it's not lost. And of course it figures that I desperately need those since ds is outgrowing his mediums.

Mail is crazy sometimes. I know I send something on Saturday that arrived in Cali today, yet something I send last Monday still hasn't arrived one state away.
