    It was a normal bubble envelope with a couple attys, a coil trimming tool and a little tote of shoelace cotton.

    I'm not complaining. I got two for the price of one. My point was the cockeyed uncertain nature of buying from China. It was lost in China, and then suddenly outta nowhere shows up here in a USPS facility 3 months later. After I'd had the second replacement shipment from 3A for a few weeks already.

    How could anything ever get lost in a highly organized surgically precise operation like this?

    From experiences I have had some Vendors use 3rd party shippers and that can add weeks to a shipment. I am thinking it got stuck in the corner of a container or maybe fell off a belt and was not noticed until someone found it. Then just sent it on it way. Who knows but is one good conversation piece. Did they ever get back to you about it finally arriving?

    I have been running constantly and haven't had a chance to tell them yet,.
    My fear is that it may motivate them to wait longer for others before sending out a replacement for lost packages though too.

    So somebody whose package IS permanently lost waits a few more weeks for a reshipment because the vendor wonders if it will still show up. On the other hand, I can't be the first person this has happened to either.

    Sorry if it was me and 90 days I would have already done a charge back. With your thinking that it might motivate them to wait before reshipping lost items for others than take it as a bonus because 90 days is BS or Fastech maybe?

    I don't think that is time traveling, to me it looks more like some dumbass didn't take it off the truck and it returned to Queens to get sent on it's way one more time~! With USPS, that doesn't surprise me but since you posted it here you have a screen shot to prove to them what has been transpiring~!

    If that was the case ot would have had to been scanned in and left on in South Jersey and Wilmington. And it didn't have a departure scan the second time from NJ. The whole thing is really weird.

    Yeah, I see what you are saying there is only one departure scan although there are arrival scans. Strange to say the least~!

    It's waiting at my local PO so that is all that matters. But the path of some packages boggles the mind. I had one go from Georgia to Florida then north to NJ and then to Maine before it came back south to Delaware.

    I once had a package arrive at JFK Airport about 12-15 miles away from me that went 500 miles around New York to Massachusetts and then through Connecticut before ever coming back to the distribution center to come to my local Post Office. They said well someone put it in the wrong bin but it isn't late~! Fuck them~!

    Bought my daughter and son in law tickets for Trans Siberian Orchestra in Raleigh in December. Mailed them in a priority envelope third week in November a few days after I got them. They never made it. I got new ones printed and held at will call. The tickets finally showed up first week in February.

    I guess next time just send the tickets to them for will call or early pickup~! I like my regular Postal Carrier because he is the greatest but the rest of the Postal System makes me go postal~!

    Tracking has been unbelievably bad once anything gets to the Detroit area lately.

    Everything from sitting in the same place for 2 days to being pushed back 2 days and then showing up at the door on the original day anyway.
