    Good heavens what's with all the postal
    Mishaps?!!!? And BB, I Ted to my friend in the postal office. She says go to your local branch, and let them know. If you insured it, it should cover a retrieval attempt for up to two attempts. If not, you gotta just hope the person who received it, returns it, at which point, you'd be notified, and have the option to resend. THIS FOLKS IS WHY YOU SKWAYS INSURE PACKAGES SENT THROUGH THE USPS!! That last part was from Katie, my postal office friend!! Lol ( I was mailing gifts to my brother and his family in Cali, and I wouldn't have even thought to ask this question if she hadn't asked if the package was for my PJ secret Santa!!) hope that helps BB.

    Thanks whispering hands. I talked to the post office and they took all the info and said someone will be calling me in 24 hrs. I just don't understand how it could go to WI if I sent it to NC. I don't know anyone in WI.
    Crazy shit going on during the xmas season. someone at USPS is drinking on the job
    BB, that is a crazy coincidence about the streets. I still don't know how that can even happen if they go by the zip. maybe they can retrieve it.
    I hope so Logan. Makes no sense bro.

  • Mine's arrived today, lots of awesome stuff in there all the way from Arizona!!
  • I received my Secret Santa gift from the UK. There was no name or card, but I asked Dimi and he told me it was Magic the Cat. Thank you, Magic, for the copy of Go on vinyl and for the CD from Lost Tuesday Society! I'm not familiar with that band, so I'm looking forward to listening to it, and of course, spinning some PJ. Thanks again! image

    Glad you received it OK, I should have got the CD signed, let me know what you think of it. I love the last track, it's some good old Welsh rock with lots of folk influences.

    Got home yesterday to a package on the front porch! No pic to post, but a pile of PJ stickers and two incredible posters made my day! Thanks to my S.S.!!!

    Glad you got it and even better, glad you liked it. Hope you have a great rest of the year!

    I got mine shipped out yesterday, I was waiting on a custom made gift I purchased but found out was not yet shipped to me. I sent the other things I picked out hoping it finds my person before Christmas. The post office said it should be there on time.

    I also would like to say I received my package. I'm going to hold off on opening it for a little while longer, I know the suspense will eat me up lol. I'm never going to make it til Christmas!

    ok so i've had the worst 6 weeks everrrrrr and it just got worse, because amazon delivered my SS gift to me and not my person!! so I apologize, it's being resent today. I really hope they don't screw up my huge christmas order for my kids...

    also, thank you JV 130312 for my gift, which my tenant had for about two weeks and didn't tell me about until yesterday! a soccer jersey, some sweet GoT stickers, a beer coozie, and an awesome pair of headphones, which my son has already claimed for his own hahaha.

    Glad it got to you!! Hopefully it didn't disappoint!! Did the jersey fit?

  • Got mine! Thank you for the book, candle, lotion, and PJ stickers! small world- I went to U of I too!
  • I see posts with concerns about gifts that should've been received awaiting post from recipient. Don't know who my SS is, but I have not received mine in case this applies to those in limbo :) No spoilers please unless absolutely necessary :)
  • ok...am I just an idiot?...how do I post pictures on this damn thing?
  • Hello all and Merry Christmas

    ...two things...

    1.) Terry G... thanks so much for my gifts. 3 T Shirts, the new pearl jam aviator pin, two, count them TWO pearl jam decals, and I'm not sure what else as I am not home to double check, (i'll edit later)...thanks THANKS SOOO MUCH!! I look forward to this every year!!

    2.) I haven't sent mine out yet. I, like a few others am waiting on a couple of items and it'll go out shortly. I promise it'll get to where its going before Christmas!

    If I can post pictures of my stash I will soon!!

    EDIT: Now I get it. Your name is Victor and in parentheses, you had written "what you taught me". I wasn't sure what you meant. I'm slow sometimes! Haha. Anyway, thank you again for the very nice package and the card. It made my day. Merry Christmas to you as well!

    PS The Love Boat Captain 45 has already been played a couple of times in my house!

  • OMFG! Just opened my gifts...absolute perfection as well as perfect timing!! I got a local brewery glass, some trader Joe's sweets, various stickers (pj, brewery, & U2!) I'm super stoked about the cd of holiday PJ! One item literally sent chills up my spine due to the timing: North side story U2 book!! I've literally been debating purchasing this all day but decided to hold off because of ticket & travel expenses for venturing to the Chicago show. Again, immaculate timing!! I'm so giddee I'll have a hard time going to sleep!! Thank you so much MD11052; I'm assuming this because of the little birdie comment :) THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!
  • "Your package has been held by US customs for unknown reasons".
    ?! ~X(
    I've checked the customs site, it says there they can hold packages for as long as 6 months . I don't really understand why, because there's nothing suspicious about the parcel. Hoping it's just some kind of a routine check and that it will not take more than a couple of weeks :-S
