My nephew was coming from Sydney to stay with me over Xmas.
He's into bass playing so I found him a dvd on ebay from the USA and bought it on the 8th of December, thinking surely that will arrive before Xmas.....dead wrong.
It was posted US priority mail on the 9th and I was sent a tracking number.
Everything went well until this thing arrived in Sydney on the 16th.
The estimated arrival date to me in the West was Dec 19th-Dec27th...no probs I thought, my nephew would still be here until the 28th.
My tracking number told me it arrived in Sydney on the 16th, then it sat....and sat...and sat....
27th came and went, 28th came and went. I waved goodbye to my nephew on the 28th.
Contacted the seller and, understandably, there was nothing he could do.
Finally arrived yesterday, Jan 2nd...17 days after arriving in this wonderful country.
Jeeeezuz wept.....the worst part is....I can't even ask anyone wtf?
rant over...until next time
