USPS Hates Me...

Monday, March 28, 2016

I decided that I really wanted one of those fitness trackers, like the Fitbit. Only, I really wanted the Garmin Vivofit 2. Sadly, it just isn't in my budget at the moment... So I searched Amazon Review Trader and found something similar. I'm sure it's no where near as good, but whatever. It'll do for now and it cost me a whopping $5. I was really excited that I was approved to review it and even more excited when I found out that it was going to be delivered today. (I wasn't really expecting deliveries on Easter...)
Anyway, I had two packages scheduled to arrive today... Imagine my disappointment when I went outside and found only one package containing my ground flaxseed...but no fitness tracker. I checked the tracking and it still said out for delivery. At this point, I started to get antsy and told my husband that i was tempted to try calling the post office. He told me that I was over-reacting and maybe another carrier had it.
See, here's the thing... I was supposed to get a package on a Sunday last month. It was "out for delivery" according to the tracking, but then a few hours later, it said that there was a delay. This went on for a month. Finally, I'd called the post office a few days ago and as it turns out, they'd lost my package. It wasn't really a big deal (it was something I'd paid $1 for) so I was okay with it... But the postmaster was very helpful and explained to me that the main hub is responsible for Sunday deliveries, not my usual carrier.
Well... At nearly 5pm today, I got a text that there was a problem with the shipping address for my package and it couldn't be delivered. I KNEW IT! I KNEW THERE WAS AN ISSUE! Ugh... I swear, the Bay Shore post office hates me for some reason. Now I have to make a crapload of phone calls in the morning and cross my fingers that I can get my package tomorrow. I'm SO frustrated! I never have these problems during the week! And of course, it had to happen with the one thing that I was REALLY looking forward to receiving! I think I may start planning my Amazon orders so that nothing arrives on Sundays...
