Folks, this package has caused me to lose sleep. Not really but almost. I know some of you think I spend a lot of money on yarn but it’s a skein here and a skein there and never any massive amounts at one time except when I bought yarn to make Agata. Even after clicking “buy”, I kept thinking I shouldn’t have done it. But the sweater is so pretty and the yarn makes it . . and it was done so . . it was done. I kept watching the tracking info and it was supposed to be here on the 19th. You can imagine how I felt when I looked at the tracking info on the 18th and saw that it was in Puerto Rico. I kept thinking it was a mistake . . the same tracking number had been issued to another package and mine would get here as scheduled on the 19th. Nope, didn’t happen.
I called the post office customer service number. What an experience that was! The conversation, after an amazingly long hold time went something like this.
P.O. Lady: Yes, the package appears to be in Puerto Rico.
Me: What happens next?
P.O. Lady: You WILL get your package!
Me: Do you have any idea when?
P.O. Lady: No. If you’ll give me your phone number, I’ll have someone call you back.
Me: (Gave my phone number) Do you have any idea it will be before someone calls me back.
P.O. Lady: There are a lot of calls. Most likely, you won’t get a call back! But you will get your package!
That was so comforting. So, on the 19th, 20th, 21st, I kept watching the tracking info. Nothing changed. May package was probably drinking rum on the beach in Puerto Rico.
Then I decided that once the package misses its arrival date, maybe they just stop updating the page.
But, I just checked and my package is in Abilene which means it will be here tomorrow. That package has given me a whole lot of frustration!
I must get busy knitting my next project so I can do the next project and then the next project will be Agata.
