Unexpected package arrival

United States
January 30, 2018 1:16am CST
99.9% of the time I have my packages shipped to my fianc├ęs place or, our PO box. Rarely do I ship my packages home because, oh you know parents'. Well my dad in particular. He's always curious what I bought and then goes I shop too much Little does he know... Anyway, I just got home about a hour ago, and on my desk was my small package from Victoria's Secret. I totally forgot about the order! It was a sports bra & panties that I ordered a week or two ago. In fact, I had to double check the invoice to make sure it was mine because I totally forgot I ordered it. Have you ever forgot that you ordered something until it arrived?

That hasn't happened to me yet, but I will have a lot of explaining to do when my gf opens one of my packages and finds a Victoria's Secret bra and panties! haha I'm actually surprised something like that hasn't happened to me yet, because it seems like these days I am ordering something on a daily basis. There have been times at night where I have been so tired I forget that I ordered something until I happen to look at the email confirmation the next day. Sometimes I scratch my head and ask myself "Did I really order that?"

Hahahahah =) Hey! Unless you are buying for her then no problem right. I forgot about the order because it was a back ordered then it didn't ship here so I forgot until I got home! I have been buying a lot lately, I should slow down but I do sleep with credit cards by my side and if I can't or when I can't sleep I sometimes pop in to see if there are any deals & go online shopping! hah

Not really. I seem to remember almost all fo the things I buy online. Speaking of parcel, I am anxiously waiting for my Philip Stein watch to arrive today. I hope it will as I am so excited to try it on. But if it won't arrive today I'm certain it will tomorrow.

I rarely buy online so there is no way to forget about the order if I made any online. In January I bought a pair of shoes for my son. The packet came after the third day even though my son keep on asking about it.

No, because I only bought one thing at a time, when I placed the order and paid for it online I would remind myself to get the package when it arrives

You have to physically get the package when ordered?

@infatuatedbby Yes, there is a specific place where packages are gathered so I should go to there and get my package when someone notify me my package has arrived

@RodrickH Oh I see! Here we order online mostly to have it delivered. If it cannot be delivered like needs a signature required, then we have to pick it up at the branch. Or, sometimes I will have the online ordered, ready for pick up in stores (then those I don't forget either because they send me email notifications when its ready).

No. Also because, until now, I ordered little online. Just liquids for e-cig.

@infatuatedbby It depends how I prefer. I can pay on the order (with prepaid card) Or, on delivery. But if the postman does not have to give the rest counted, well I can stay "cheated"

I don't have this problem. Perhaps you have bought so many things and therefore it is not easy for you to track them. Most of the time I send my packages to my office as there will be someone to pick up the packages.

Yes, I bought a lot and sometimes I don't always remember or keep track. But I wasn't as excited because I already have enough sport bras & panties so these were a great deal so I bought them anyway :)
