what is up with customs lately?

Canada
March 12, 2007 8:02pm CST
Everything I bought and paid for in the beginning of Feb - and was mailed around the middle of February - hasn't come in. What is up with US Customs? I mean for crying out loud they are only diapers? Everything, im not talking one or two things, but everything which was mailed in that one week is still not here. And usually it doesn't take this long to get here. I mean I know Canada Post is usually slow but not this slow. I wonder what is up?

Has international mail coming and going from the US been slow? That my explain why neither I nor the person who shipped my order from China know what happened to it. I've ordered from the guy tons of times in the past and never had a problem until now. It's a human hair wig, so the probably think I've got a real head in there or something. *rolls eyes*

LOL that wouldn't surprise me. I mean I could see this happening at Christmas time, but we're in the middle of March. What is going on lately? I mean this is frustrating, from my end and from the sellers end, because both of us know it should have been here by now.

I don't know what these guys do with our stuff. I picture them all gathered around my special order box of vitamins shaking the package. Trying to guess what is inside. They have a good laugh. Then they bring a dog in to take a sniff and maybe a leak on the package. Come to think of it, by the time I do get some deliveries, they do smell a bit odd. It really is frustrating and this whole security think sure has been taken a bit far. I mean, can't they just run stuff though an ex ray machine or something?

That would be Canada customs, and its because of the backlog from people buying things on e-bay. A month isn't that long to wait for things to pass through customs any more, since they've had to downsize
