Personally, I'd leave a negative rating due to poor communication for sure know after you get it so future buyers know.
There's literally no reason to take so long to ship something out without a reason unless they had a family emergency without letting you know in advance (e.g. he even set two dates when he was going to ship it out and missed it TWICE and gave a useless reply).
Like someone mentioned, most Post offices are open till 9 PM, you can even ship on Saturdays, no excuse; no matter how busy you are, it literally only takes 15 minutes in a day to ship something out max; just like how companies shouldn't take a week to ship out a product unless they don't actually have it in stock or backlogged from large sales (where decent companies inform you in advance).
