Where's my shit?

Today, a package has been sitting at the post office for two weeks, with a status update of "Arriving Late." I've finally been told the package is most likely lost in a sorting bin, and won't arrive before Christmas. It was a custom-made, commissioned Christmas gift, that took two months to even complete, and can't be replaced. FML

Print a picture of it. Put it inside a nice card and write "coming soon" or something like that. And just give them the actual gift after Christmas.

Have you tried going to the post office and getting it off the shelf? You seem to know where it is. I'm suspicious that you didn't mention what the gift was. Is it a dildo? Never mind, I don't want to know!

Way to ruin the surprise...

the why the fuck are you asking? you're not actually talking. you're typing it down. pendejo.

I told them I'd go get it because the post office is only two hours away from me, but they claim they will not let me do that for some asinine reason. And as of today, a second package has the same status in the same location. I'm going to start asking sellers to ship via UPS or FedEx and I'll pay the extra cost. If they can't, I will cancel the order.

I’m stealing this idea for personal use should the need ever arise. Can make the picture up to look like a ‘coming attraction’ trailer on a movie screen or something!

I could try, but now they've basically admitted they don't know where it is or if it will even be recovered. In one emailed paragraph they sent me, they said it *might* be in Georgia (when it was in Kansas City, two hours away from me) due to possible damage, in which case they're the ones who damaged it because the sender wrapped it in three layers of bubble wrap and had FRAGILE stamped all over it. I despise the USPS...

UPDATE: The package is STILL in limbo and the post office has basically admitted they have no idea where it is or if they'll ever find it. I absolutely despise the USPS. I work at a newspaper and we rely on them at work to deliver the paper to our subscribers. I get calls daily from people saying they didn't get theirs. Someone two states away said it takes from four to six weeks to receive one issue. That is not acceptable. So I've decided that from now on, if I place an online order, I'm going to request the sender use UPS or FedEx and I'll pay for it. If they don't, I'll cancel the order. I refuse to use the USPS at all.
