When I ordered my first set of Knitpicks dpns I waited and waited for them to get delivered. Days and days and days went by. I finally decided I would go to the post office to find out what was going on (according to the tracking they were supposed to have been delivered). The day I decided I got a notice from my apartment managers that I needed to clear off my patio for a balcony rebuilding. I open the door to the patio I NEVER use... and there were my dpns. They must have been sitting there, thrown over the fence, for at least a week.
The strange thing is, the complex has those big package mail boxes but every package I get is either left on my doorstep or thrown over the fence. Oh, except for the package that was crammed in my little box. Yeah, couldn't get that out because it was too wide for the opening.
Yup, I despise USPS.
