Enroute to me, before it even left their CITY, it somehow got 'Missent', according to the tracking.
Contacted the seller, and said hey, we might want to keep an eye on this because of what it's saying. I'd never had it happen to me before, I'd never seen a 'missent' tracking update, so wasn't sure what we needed to do.
Well, the good news is, the seller has had this happen before.
The bad news is, the seller has had this happen before.
They said it'll go to the town my brother lives in, back to their town, then SHOULD come to me.
Their closing statement doesn't fill me with confidence in our postal system or in them either- 'Hope you get it!:)'
Last night, I filled out a stolen/missing mail online form and sent it in. Tracking never updated until early this morning.
You know what's worse than seeing the tracking updated to 'out for delivery', knowing that your mail has already gone and it's not here?
The SELLER saying, well, hope you get it and doing nothing on their end to find out what has happened to the package THEY sent.
Congrats, seller, no matter how much I love your yarns, that just cost you future purchases from me.
I'm not perfect, but holy cow, part of a seller's job is to make sure the package gets to the customer, not wash your hands of it as soon as it's in the mail and say well, hope you get it, leaving it to the customer to figure out what happened to the package, when it never arrives.
What a farce this has become.
So I ordered some more yarn from an Etsy seller I bought a skein from last month.
