Same song and dance, different day.
An aspect of selling online that I've become increasingly sick of, especially since moving to this area is delivery confirmation. As many as half the numbers generated each week do not scan until the point of delivery, not even at a P&DC hub. It is after all delivery confirmation, just like it sounds. When you explain this to people who are complaining the number is not working, that insist you must not have sent the parcel, it becomes increasingly delicate with each passing message. Until the delivery takes place, it's like walking on egg shells. I've got a guy in Florida, sent his game Monday by Priority, still isn't scanned up. I'm in a debate with the fellow and he is getting unfriendly. We are talking about the fourth day (yeah, that is slow, yet I've sent it, not much more I could do) but he claims the number isn't valid (it's the first concatenated online D/C he has seen, 420 signifies the type, the next five digits are his zip code, the next 16 are the embedded D/C #)
The local drug store is the post office where I live now. If it gets to that post office after the postal truck picks up for the day, the package sits until the next day. The scheduled time for that pick up is 3:45pm. I've already observed it as early as 1:30pm once (because I was there dropping off). I dropped 7 items off on Monday at around 2pm. Don't know if it was early enough, suspect not. This means that Tuesday afternoon it would truck to Nashville Postal Distribution Center, then late night Tuesday/Wednesday early morning get sorted and sent to Florida. If it was unloaded and set to the local office in time his carrier should have had it today, if not tomorrow. The local post office/drug store does not have any scanning ability. Even if they wanted to they could not scan incoming mail. Even if you sent it from their counter.
I've been kind, explaining everything as I have here, in great detail. What more can I do? Four communications since shipment was made. I can't exactly ignore him, but I'm out of things to say. It will come, he needs to give the post office time. I feel like it's one of my kids not being patient. There isn't anything more I can do. Perhaps I'd be less frustrated if this wasn't a common occurrence. It is illogical to harass someone to make an item get there faster.
