I bought something on eBay last Sunday. No, not yesterday, a week before that. As soon as the auction ended, I immediately paid for the item. The item description, as well as the shipping information, stated that I was paying for USPS Priority Mail shipping. So, I figured, best-case scenario - I get the item by Wednesday; worst-case scenario - he waits until Wednesday to ship the item and I don't get it until Saturday.
Well, the entire week came and went, with said item never showing up in my mailbox. So, I send a message to this person asking them when they shipped my item since I had not yet received it. Today, I got a response to my question. "Dear mel0die,
You should be getting your item this week. There is a holiday in there so that may of held up time alittle. It was sent 1st class mail. Thanks
I'm usually a rather patient person (Shut up! I am to!), but right now I just want to reach through the internet and slap the sh!t out of this person. "There is a holiday in there"?? Hello? What holiday? Was there a holiday last week that I wasn't made aware of? I pretty sure my mail ran every day, so whatever this imaginary holiday was, it obviously didn't affect the USPS. "It was sent 1st class mail"??? Seriously?? After you specified and I PAID for PRIORITY MAIL you decided to just send it FIRST CLASS?? Are you just trying to make an extra buck? Like it wasn't bad enough that I was being charged $5.50 for $4.60 shipping, you still had to be even more greedy with my shipping money. I think I deserve a refund at the very least.
Thanks for nothing, F*cktard!
