    I agree that they should have contacted you, but give them until the weekend to respond – they might have had super busy weeks. I know myself that I wouldn’t want to rush an answer to a request like this, so they might call you during the weekend when they have more time and energy.

    I would be annoyed that they didn’t acknowledge the package too.  But maybe they are super busy and wanted to call you and haven’t had time.  If you haven’t heard from them by Sunday night, I might call them to make sure they got it and to chit chat.

    A: Just because your package said it’s delivered doesn’t mean it was delivered to the right person.

    B: They could be busy.

    C: I think you’re overreacting a bit. At least give them a chance to respond, and I’d probably wait until the first or second of April before starting to flip out.

    D: If it’s important, call. Don’t text. This world of digitalizing things disappoints me.

    If it is important and they are friends, don’t text them. Call them on the phone go see them, like the olden days.

    I will admit that I would be a bit upset too. I dont care how busy you are, you can take 30 seconds to send a text message. It could just say that you will call over the weekend or that you are busy but got the package.

    What sort of tracking are you doing? I used to have a small business and dealt with tracking with both UPS and USPS and I’ve never had a tracking number tell me the address it was delivered to. It’s always just said “Delivered” or “left with woman” or “left by back door.” with the address I’ve sent it to. That doesn’t mean that’s where it ended up. When I would send care packages to my ex, they would commonly be delivered to his neighbor. Probably 3 out of all of the ones I sent were actually put in his mail box/his doorstep.

    @KaleighMarie:  I think they are probably busy…

     

    or on the flip side, maybe they thought it was odd that you mailed them something and are waiting for them to call you?  I talked to all my BMs in person to ask them to be in my wedding. 🙂

    @KaleighMarie:  Do they live in apartment buildings? Something that always confuses my rural/suburban friends is that in every building I’ve lived in, I can’t just pick up a package. There are set hours which tend to be the exact hours I work (no weekend or late hours). To get a package, I would have to go into the office late or come home early. It could be that they just haven’t had a day where they could do that.
