- Wedding: June 2012
SO ordered my ring on Sunday…it was supposed to be a surprise to me about when it got here and when he got it set and everything, but he decided he wanted to take me with him to the jeweler’s when he gets the stone set so I can make sure it’s set how I want (I don’t know…there aren’t THAT many ways to set a stone, right? Whatevs), so he gave me the delivery info so I can stalk it like I do every package I’m waiting for 😛
It shipped via USPS 1st class with signature confirmation on the 24th (Tuesday) and the Track & Confirm has only had it listed as “Electronic Shipping Info Received. The U.S. Postal Service was electronically notified by the shipper on May 25, 2011 to expect your package for mailing. This does not indicate receipt by the USPS or the actual mailing date” since then.
The ETA we got from the seller was May 26th to June 1st so I guess we have some time, but I’m worried about the lack of shipping updates. I called the USPS and the woman said that 1st class + signature confirmation is untrackable and that’s why the T&C page never updated…but I don’t know if I buy that because how would the seller even get a tracking number (which they conceivably got through the USPS) in that case? And if it is untrackable and gets lost…how will they ever find it?? Uugggh. Who on earth uses the fucking USPS to ship something so valuable as a freaking engagement ring??!
Just had to rant…waiting for mail that is completely out of my hands is not easy for Mrs. Control Freak over here! I seriously practically go insane every time I am waiting for mail…and this is some of the most exciting mail I’ll ever get, so it’s extra stressful.
