I doubt I ever see this package. Thank goodness it’s just two skeins of yarn and not a whole bunch of skeins. I’ve filed the appropriate “Where’s my package?” forms online with the post office. Even our local post office got a copy and they called me but this certainly isn’t their fault.
This package arrived at the Seminole-Orlando airport on 1/27 and here’s the unbelievable story about the package.
- Left Seminole-Orlando – February 4 (which means it sat there 8 days)
- Arrived Tallahassee – February 5
- Left Tallahassee – February 7 (sat there 2 days)
- Arrived Americus, GA – February 7
- Left Americus, GA – February 7
- Arrived Tallahassee – February 7 (What the heck?)
- Left Tallahassee – February 9 (sat there another 2 days)
- Arrived Americus, GA – February 9
- Left Americus, GA – February 9
- Arrived Tallahassee – February 9 (Are you kidding me?)
- Left Tallahassee – February 10. Any guesses as to where it’s going to land next? My guess is back to Americus, GA.
At this point, it’s kinda funny to watch. Unbelievable though. The post office has been doing a good job of getting packages to us so this is the exception but what a screwed up mess this one is!
Yes, I will be extremely surprised if I ever see this package!

Had the same experience with a simple pattern ordered from The Fat Quater Shop in Texas…..Left the shop ok, on time and that was the last I heard of it….Placed numerous phone calls to USPS with no luck…..finally called FG Shop & they sent me another pattern with No Charge, which I though was nice, Two & a half months later guess what showed up in my mail…..You guessed it, my first pattern…..So don’t give up on your yarn, you’ll probably get it one day……Thank goodness the postal service works well most of the time…..Have a good day…Dot M.

I’ve had a few packages over the years that have taken strange side trips before getting to me. Don’t give up hope yet.

I’m in Utah expecting a package from California. It left California on the 7th, on the 9th it was in Massachusetts, and this morning it’s in New Hampshire! It must be taking the scenic route.
Thought I’d share my “where’s my package”……fwiw, we live 60 miles from Amarillo…..packages (when they get to Amarillo) are delivered the next day. We’ll see if it shows up tomorrow :-). (From the bottom up for scans).

Thank goodness these are the exceptions! I have seen where packages took scenic routes, like Dianne’s (going way way past the destination), but I haven’t ever seen one wander around like Dottie’s. Nor have I ever seen one ping-pong between two entirely unrelated cities like yours. I wonder what in the world is causing that? Very strange!
Hahaha!! That is funny!! Of course, I’m not the one waiting for the package. I remember several years ago I ordered some things and then didn’t think about it for about three weeks. I called the company to find out what was happening, and they got very upset with me for not calling them earlier!! I didn’t even know it HAD been shipped!! All I know is I never got it. They did replace it, but they made it very evident that I should have called them much sooner….as if I’d known weeks sooner that I should have received it by then!! The sad thing is that this happens altogether too often, and instead of the companies being reimbursed for having to replace items that never made it to their intended places, most of this merchandise ends up in a dead letter office and gets sold at auction…the P.O. gets the money in the end. Something just doesn’t seem right about that.

This is strange for sure, but not so funny to me since I live in Tallahassee. We have pretty horrible mail service. I grew up in suburbs of Mpls, MN…even back then (over 55 years ago) we had to have our mail boxes on one side of the street. Not so today in Tallahassee…the mail person has to go up and down both sides of the street…crazy. We have had no mail delivered more than once and packages seem to take much longer. It also has happened where we get “tried to deliver” messages when we try to track a package and we were home and there had been no attempt to deliver. That one makes me angry–don’t lie about it. Our son lives one house away from us and has had the same issue. Not long ago, the message was “signature required and no one home” and it was an Amazon order for almond flour and protein bars. Seriously! It’s no wonder the post office is losing so much money! (I will say that our little neighborhood post office manager Lucy is awesome. I wish there were more Lucy’s! Hope you eventually get your yarn!

My package went from Idaho to Washington to Ohio to Michigan and finally to Indiana. It ended up being almost 3 weeks past Christmas present time, but I did receive it eventually.
Dar in MO says
Judy, If I see it in Missouri, I will just drive it over to you!!! lol Or open it up and use it — what color is the yarn? If it’s purple, you know you might not get it at all! tee hee
