I hate the postman..
« on: March 29, 2016, 12:40:59 PM »
That isn't true exactly.   The big guy and the girl covered in flower tattoos are nice.  The mustached man who leaves the mailbox open in the rain though >:(  >:(

All I got today were coupons for Dunkin Donuts.  The coupons weren't even for donuts.  What's up with that?

Where are my German Cathedrals?  Where are my Splendor Tiles?  Where are my extra Mage & Witch tiles.  Tell me postman ...WHERE?!?!

Just exactly how many days have you been waited? Sometimes there's up to 2 weeks before things arrive. And then it's the Easter Holiday that may add even more days.

And, if you live in the smack middle of the Amazon, I'm pretty sure even the Swedish 3-days tops for any letter to any continent rule won't apply. :)

The cundco stuff takes 10 days to make it here.  The stuff I ordered from Kansas and Oregon should have been here last week. 

This thread is mainly in jest.  I am sure others will occasionally like to gripe about their missing, late, or damaged parcels.

Delivery anxiety is common :)

Even worse when the items are coming by a tracked mechanism and you can see it making its way across the world in what seem like very slow steps.
Whatever it is, it's probably in the post from Germany...

What indeed! Presumably they were for something else sold at Dunkin Donuts? Crazy days.

My postman is OK most of the time, apart from when he steps over the little fence separating us from next door and then walks across the front lawn, rather than going back down their drive and up ours. But I try not to hold that against him.

This is less a "I hate the postman..." and more a "I hate when people screw up billing and shipping addresses...". Apparently Spielbox, when sending me my copy of SPIEL DOCH! decided that my billing address in Arizona would be a better place to send the magazine than to my shipping address in New Zealand. I got an angry email from my mother-in-law yesterday asking why I received some German magazine in the mail (she's a bit...discriminatory) to which I replied with confusion and then realisation. Thinking I had made the mistake, I checked my PayPal and Spielbox confirmation emails only to see that both said that the package was to go to New Zealand and it even noted that the package was "Dispatched to NZ". Apparently "NZ" is a new acronym in Germany for "US". A frustrated email has been sent and I really hope they reship another copy to my actual current address. I want the tiles now, not in two years when I get back to the US. Ugh...

I just ordered a bunch of stuff from Spielbox.  If they ship it to your mother-in-law, I'll never see it.  Southwesterners hate us East Coast folks almost as much as they hate ... Germans?   ???

Perhaps if you put your mother in laws address on the order they'll send it to you in NZ? Seems logical to me.

lol. Or she's get two more copies and I'll get an import fee for both, raised a bit since I couldn't possibly pay so little for such a trendy magazine (see Kickstarter thread – Colosseum comments for context). That seems to make sense.

The order I placed with Cundco on March 21 finally arrived, and all the items I ordered were there, except the German Cathedrals!  I'm so crushed, I can't even look at everything else I ordered. >:(  Sorry, just had to vent a little to those that would understand.

Hi mowboa,
please send an email to CundCo and tell them which part of your order was not in your package.

It's been a week and still no response.  I have emailed them every other day.  Does anyone have another way to contact them?

Whilst I don't blame the postman, I object to his employers' business practices
