Remember my earlier complaint about the USPS? Well, it seems that I may need to apologize. Checked with the seller of the book I purchased and while they sent me a tracking number and told me that the book was shipped June 24, in truth, nothing happened until this morning – June 29. Now, where I come from, telling someone that the merchandise is en route when it hasn’t even left the building is known as a “lie.” And believe me, once I get this book and no longer need anything from the seller, I will state as much in their reviews. But I figured I should man-up and point out that USPS wasn’t at fault. They couldn’t update anything because they hadn’t been given anything.
If USPS is accurate (ahem), then I won’t even get the book until July 6 – a thirteen day trek from Omaha that I could have done round-trip by car in 48 hours. (Why, O Nature? Why are you trying to get me to snap? What have I done to you?)
So . . . sorry USPS. I still wish that you guys would update your darn tracking system so that we knew where our packages were, but in this instance, you’re in the clear.
