I had been working on last week's blog for several days. I was only waiting on the last piece to arrive by USPS to be photographed. I saw the little mail truck turn the corner on Saturday. (Feeling like Pavlov's dog, my heart started racing, my palms became moist.) She didn't turn in?!
I trotted over to my computer and checked the tracking again. (I had just looked yesterday morning, and it was scheduled for delivery today.) Oh no! Something happened! It was back in California!
Have you ever tried to get a live person on the telephone for USPS? I found a trick (I googled it). You dial 1-800-275-8777 and keep yelling "Agent" into the phone. It actually works! (Even if it hadn't, I figured yelling at the post office would make me feel better). I now have a case number, and they are trying to get everything re-routed and sorted out. They even said I would be contacted within one business day. (Which DID NOT happen. No e-mail, no call, NOTHING. And they are operating in the red, why??)
So, here it is Wednesday; I just got word from the seller the item was actually returned to them in California and they are having to ship it again. I had made a secret promise to myself that I would blog each week, but I am already four days late. But a birthday doll did arrive today!
