Mary go round (or how USPS really works...)

Unread post by EX5_etc » Sat Nov 05, 2016 3:44 am

It has been told that USPS works in mysterious ways, like some other big fella that will not be named herein. Sometimes though it makes you wonder if it actually works.

The small package I am expecting left China 8-9 days ago. It arrived at NY customs. And then it started to go sightseeing: Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, back to Connecticut for round two, another trip to New Jersey and New York, and then Pennsylvania, the original final destination. It was 10 to 20 miles away from my house. So you think it's here but not really. Because that invisible ghost that lives in the postal office buildings stroke again and the package went back to New York and (you guessed right) back to New Jersey. It remains to be seen when and IF it will arrive in my hands. Talk about efficiency...

Motif XF6, DeepMind 12D, MicroArranger, MicroKorg S, SY99, SY85, QS300, PSR1000, WX5, EX5R, A5000, TG500, TG55, RM50, QY700, QY100, QX5FD, MDF3, MJC8, EMX2, YDP2006, REV500, EMP700, EQ500U, MCS2, AW16G, Axiom Pro 49, AKAI Pro Advance 49, Arturia KeyLab mkII 61, and a few other things by Behringer, Evolution, Philips, Tascam, Technical Pro, Yamaha, etc, etc,... I wish I had time to use all this stuff; I am not even pro. :-)

Was wondering if this did eventually arrive?

We have the same thing when sending parcels to Ukraine. They leave the UK ok but then seem to embark on the never ending journey! Luckily all but one we have sent over the years did actually arrive intact at their destination.
