Very vivid imagery here! I am so sorry
I totally agree–many Buyers at this point basically seem to think that ANYTHING purchased on Amazon forever more (no matter what they do or do not pay for Prime or shipping) should arrive “the day after tomorrow”, no matter when they order, what day it is, etc.
The “delivered-but-not-arrived” could legit be Porch Poachers this time of year–strongly recommend that they report these issues to the carriers and file a police report, as well as to any building or neighborhood leadership. We have had to do this often for our personal deliveries over the past few seasons!
@UBS_Sales, I agree. Knock on all the wood, I haven’t yet had USPS let me down–or any carrier this season. I suspect that it’s because we’re located in a regional hub.
