    I called the post office this morning to see if they had my eggs yet. I am pretty shure they are more then tired of me calling but I dont care [​IMG]
    After telling me they could not hold them at the post office when I called yesterday , and that was after telling me they could and would [​IMG] [​IMG]
    Anyways I called this morning about 9am and was told that the package was scanned in at a little after 4am and it was with the mail carrier [​IMG]
    They would not tell me anything else and so I wait ... and wait and I wont even be home when they get deliverd [​IMG] I have my mom on stand by she is to pounce on the mail guy as soon as he gets close to the place to see if she can get the package after all he knows she is my mom and all [​IMG]
    I think Im gonna die of anticpation [​IMG]
    After people talking about the condition of there packages lately Im a nervous wreck [​IMG]

    Next time around if the PO is not willing to hold one package for pick up, have them hold all of your mail, they have to do that and just check on it every day.
    Hope your eggs arrive safely!

    If it was scanned earlier, you should be able to track it online. Has your mail been delivered yet? Also, if the PO won't hold your package, talk to the SUPV, then the Postmaster if you have to. Be sweet as honey, and they should try to work with you...ours does.​
