PostSubject: The Dance Has Started...   Tue Oct 06, 2015 5:19 pm

The dance of the fool, that is.
According to the tracking number results, my parcel containing my tins of Plum Pudding and Mississipi River has been delivered yesterday into the Community mailbox. Only problem is, the mailman did not leave, in my mailbox, the key to open the parcel box. As this has happened before and the key was there the next day, I didn't sweat it. "It will be there tomorrow", I told myself with the faith of the believer.
Wrong. It was not there today. So, of course, I got on the phone and called Canada Post. I explained the problem to the lady and she created a Trouble Ticket. Then she told me that it could take until 9 October before I get the key. Only slight issue, she tells me, is that parcels are retrieved from the parcel mailboxes after 48hrs if unclaimed. So, basically, if the key is not put in my mailbox tomorrow, they will retrieve my parcel and redeliver it...Thursday? Friday?
If that's the case, I hope they will put the key in my mailbox, this time around. If not, I will have to call Canada Post again. They will create another Trouble Ticket. In the meanwhile, maybe they will retrieve my parcel from the parcel mailbox. Then, what happens next? Return to sender? lol!
I will keep you guys posted on the next events. Stay tuned.

Being as you're a Canuk with all the strident customs laws and such, I hope this works out to your benefit. I for one would be very nervous about alerting the authorities.

Sure hope it works out OK Guy.



Cheers,

RR

Piece of cardboard, duct tape, sharpie marker.

Leave a big note taped to the mail box so if they try to retrieve it they have to remove your note to open the box.

Draw daggers and "I know where you live" and ' going postal' diagrams in the borders of the note.


Don't worry...we'll visit you on Thursdays. Bring you cookies. Provincial Prisons are really pretty posh these days. Well, except for BuBu...your cell mate.

Bon chance.

I think I will get on my roof before I go to the community mailbox to make a Recce just to see if snipers from the SWAT Team are posted on roofs all around, waiting for me to get there.

Speaking of Fairies....No key in my personal mailbox, tonight. I kind of expected that. I must be getting pessimistic - or is it, simply, realistic?
When the power of Delta_Bravos' focus on something....Well, no need to say more. What a Face

A .38 Special might do it.

Wow, looks like someone gives a s&*?, after all. I left the house after lunch to go do a bit of grocery shopping. My friends at Canada Post brought my parcel to the doorstep.
And, believe it or not, there were no SWAT Team snipers anywhere.

Wow indeed! That certainly ended better than expected, eh?
