Shipped Off

It’s crazy how some online orders arrive quickly, earlier than expected, late, damaged, or not at all. I’ve had all except damaged and the not at all variety. Yesterday one arrived on time. Just now one arrived a day earlier. And my son’s girlfriend received one of her Christmas gifts from us last Thursday ~ late! That’s her modeling her new coat from us. With all the online shopping many of us our doing due to the pandemic, I think the shippers are doing the best they can. Better late than never!

@DianneN A lot of online retailers have stopped shipping to Northern Ireland because we are so anomalous - half in and half out of the EU while the rest of the UK is totally out. Quite a mess.

I knew that about Ireland, but not about the UK. I have too much news here to follow. Where in Ireland are you? I forgot.

Thanks. She is so pretty. The coat matches her eye color. I can’t believe you haven’t received your iPad, yet! Where is it coming from?

@DianneN That is a beautiful color of her eyes. I ordered it from a German company online shop that is reliable. I got an email last month that it will come on the 15th of January. I am glad I have not paid for it, yet.

Very nice. My daughter mailed me a fragile frame that had one of her drawings in it. The drawing is fine. The frame?? It looks like shiny pebbles on the beach.

At least the drawing is in good shape. Nothing wrong with shiny pebbles on a beach however.

@DianneN I agree about the beach pebbles. BUT: when they are supposed to be glass in a frame, well, that's not so nice.

Mail carriers are quitting and getting fired left and right too. That might have something to do with it.

@DianneN we got our ups guy fired. He stole the package with four wheeler parts, some Christmas presents, and my wedding dress the first time I ordered it. So we caught him on camera and reported it. It was about $1500 worth of stuff.

Thanks. It matches her pretty green eyes. I prefer shopping in person, but haven't entered a store since the pandemic. Online shopping isn't so bad when it comes to being safe. I Lysol everything that enters my house, too.

Sometimes it is hard to say when packages will show up! Guess it depends where you are getting things from...and what they are shipping with! For the most part things I order are on time.

As you say, better late than never. I received everything I ordered the day they announced. There are two Amazon shipment that I already received but Amazon "thinks" they were not delivered and is asking if I want a refund. I am going to tell them that they are here from almost one week.

@DianneN They update my account to let me know about the delivery day and those two things show as "non delivered"... both went here from Germany, they must have entered a wrong shipping number, the Swiss Post cannot confirm the delivery for a German code.

The cute Mickey Mouse sweatshirt I ordered my daughter for Christmas just arrived today...over 2 weeks late. I still have a jacket I ordered that has not arrived and is going on 3 weeks late, although it shipped. I have a feeling that Fed Ex lost the package. I know these delivery companies are doing the best they can, given the huge increase in online traffic due to covid.
