    Ok so I ordered some eggs off of eggbid, all excited! My stupid post office who has on more then one occasion, totally screwed my egg order (last time held them for a week before calling me after my calling twice) I can already tell there won't be any good hatches for me again this time around. They should have been in yesterday and nothing today(sat.) sigh, when will I learn. C

    Oh man! that's illegal
    can't you contact a head office?
    I would spend a day on the phone making ears bleed!
    Is this a city postoffice or rural?

    Next time you order I would ask the seller to add delivery confirmation, that way it is scanned and down loaded at all locations it goes to and you can track the progress of the shipment via www.usps.com.

    I probably have a similar thing at our local post office; local residents joke that any mail that comes in late in the day, gets thrown in the shredder in the corner ...

    what I'm going to do is find a BYCer within reasonable driving distance who DOES have a "good" postoffice -- have anything mailed sent THERE, then I'll drive over and pick it up

    could that work for you ?

    inuyashalover21 - Sorry to hear that! It has always worked for me, right now though I am waiting on an order being shipped via UPS, that order is somewhere in KY waiting to be shipped out.
