This is bullshit, Daz. I paid *forty bucks* to ship an approximately 2 kilo package to the UK. I paid *extra* for it to be there in 3-5 business days. Well, we're on business day six now, *actual* day seven. I don't know whose screwup it is-- whether it's the USPS or the RPS but this is really getting me angry.

I'm also *really* sleep deprived, so yeah.

Wow, I would complain. I have a feeling it might be the USPS, though. My packages took about 4 weeks each... Granted, I didn't pay for express shipping or anything, but packages the same size and with roughly the same content sent from Germany to the U.S. usually made it there in less than half that time.

Of course, I sent a pckage to the U.S. almost six weeks ago and it's still MIA. The German postal service are currently "investigating" th case. :P

I wouldn't even be stressing this, but this package is *not* replaceable. The contents really *cant* be duplicated the same way twice. I'm getting worried.

I was realy hoping that it would arrive *before* I hit hell week at school... :( (see my not latest, but the one right before that moblog post for details.)

You'll be delighted then to hear that the Royal Mail today "posted" profits of £500 million, and claim that they are at their most efficient for ten years :(

See I dont know whose fault this is. I dont know if it's the RMS, or the USPS. I *do* know it's insured, and that they told me 3-5 business days. I mean I dont even care if they just leave a slip. I just want to know it actually *got* there.

Just saw the JudgeTredd stuff in your "hell week" post (it wouldn't have been right for me to say what Daz said, given my gender, but coming from a strongly matriarchal family background with lots of career women (e.g. http://www.albany.edu/writers-inst/tumanahan.html [one of my aunts]), I couldn't agree more). *sighs* And that's not the first time either.

How did some of our comments get deeply nested like that :) The thing is, rikaitch and Scaryduck seem to think he is the bees knees. I don't know. And another thing... :)

I wasn't suggesting that at all. I always go with my instincts and I think we are of a mind.
