    @Kosmoskitten Thank you for all that info!!!
    I actually found my receipt with tracking number info; I was so excited. I figured I just had a terrible stupid moment and threw out the receipt. But it'd slipped into a card and I found it this morning. My dd did file a search request, describing the contents of the box.

    I was out reshopping for her this a.m. and relayed my lack of confidence in the post office this year, to one of the store owners. She said she's never heard so many stories about lost mail as she has this year. :/

    As far as ordering from overseas....my other dd had ordered something a few years back that got stuck at customs and it took at least 3 months to make it through. :s

    Good luck to you!

    Anti-smoking ad that blames the tobacco companies for a man’s cancer yet never once does he take ANY responsibility.

    It’s your own fault if you smoke and end up sick.
    (I am guilty)

    It’s your own fault if you drink so much you become an alcoholic.

    It’s your own fault if you eat like crap and don’t exercise, ending up overweight.
    (I am guilty)

    People blaming every problem on someone else.
    Take responsibility for your own decisions in your life.
    Be daring, step away from the herd.

    Don't tell my sister that

    For future long distance gifting, I suggest using a pack and ship store that utilizes FedEx or UPS. Both of them have so far been reliable this year, although they have more stringent guidelines about your box (but you can easily ask them for guidelines). Both sets of parents shipped our gifts this year using UPS and FedEx, respectively and they arrived in excellent time from across the country (3-4 days). No damage and the delivery drivers were professional and polite.

    I would utilize them myself if the nearest one wasn't a literal pain in the *kitten* to drive to in D.C. traffic. As such, I am stuck with USPS until I move, I fear.

    I did contact the record store I ordered from to let them know and man, were they ultra-polite. They told me that it might take 6 weeks to move through customs because of the backlog and shipping option I chose (silly me), but that if it didn't show up after that 6 weeks, to give them a shout and they'd either mail me a new copy or issue a refund. No fighting necessary. :)

    @Kosmoskitten My dd called USPS herself and got nowhere with them. We can't find any phone numbers online for the specific recovery center it's in. She suggested we call USPS and get hold of a representative, then ask for the phone number. I have my doubts because I'm sure they don't advertise it for a reason. :(

    I did find out an insurance claim needs to be filed 15 after it was supposed to be delivered(or from when I mailed it, can't remember :/ ) and before 60 days. So we do have awhile.

    Ugh, why are people so dumb? Especially when I'm busy with other stuff??

    Me: I need 3 names in order of preference (I'm incorporating a business for a client)
    Her: (gives me her actual name)
    Me: Well, that DEFINITELY won't already have been taken!
    Her: The name of the business is....

    A very mild irk, I suppose, but the vinyl I ordered and that was shipped Nov. 29th still hasn't manifested. I was told by the UK based company to give it six weeks, which puts that at about Jan. 10th before contacting them for a refund or reissue. Pretty sure since it's been a month that it's not going to show up ever. So I'm out about 90 bucks until I can get a refund in 2 or so weeks, I guess.

    I just hate how abysmal the US postal system is. And it's not just USPS. Fed Ex, UPS, DHL and other minor companies (like Lasership) are all equally *kitten*. Why are we paying money to have you ship stuff only to have it get lost, stolen or stuck in a sorting facility or in Customs for months on end??

    Cross fire at the shooting range. They only had to be about six feet off the center of their target to impact mine.

    The leaking sink flange I found out about when I got back from the range.

    The fact that I haven't slept yet, and I'm not sure if staying up to fix the sink is worth it. But both sides of a kitchen sink are nice sooooooo......


    Yep, I'm irked.

    I have been living for 2 months with a partial bathroom after a major leak. I want to be able to wash my hands in the bathroom! In the contractor's defense, I put everything on hold due to personal reasons for a couple of weeks and then we had holidays. But still, I am now ready to have the remodel done!

    It irks me that my cable, internet bill costs more every month than all my other utilities combined and it is always going down.
    6 days in a row with no cable last month but they dang sure charge me for it.
    Today until about 10min ago, no cable, no internet.
    🤬
    It may actually do more than irk me.
    😂
