I have also had this happen. Apparently the post guy made some sort of arrangement with the Cafe downstairs so that he didn't have to drag his lazy ass up my steps every other day. So then I had to go downstairs and convince whatever newly landed Italian guy they picked that day to run the place that these were indeed my packages, and no he doesn't have to "Make OK from Pasquale!"

That's not illegal or anything...

Sometimes they do it, but they're not supposed to. You could complain if you're that concerned.

They do the same thing in my neighborhood, but with all mail. Especially stuff from the govt and sensitive mail. Good thing the neighbors are honest. I've filed several complaints, and the same thing happens everytime. They say they are 'looking into it', service improves for a couple of days, then goes back to shitty.

Anybody have any idea how long does it take the custom to the clear the item ? Mine has been sitting there almost 5 days and it didn't clear yet and it's just only PMAGs in there.

Apparently Customs is taking a long time with all packages this past while.

The time can vary from a few hours to a few weeks. Theres really no exact way to tell how long customs will take to clear a parcel.

I had a scope from Huang, and a radio from HK today, both by EMS needing a sig. Normaly they'd just leave the notice in your mailbox since it's registered. My postie saw they were for me so he brought them along just in case I was home.

My package arrived, he was only 3 minutes off from his regular time

And he delivered it with a smile.

And oh my is this ever amazing

Also, offer your mail man a coffee or something to eat.... The more he likes you, the more he'll like delivering stuff to you.

This reminds me of a funny story.

Back when I started where I work I was the shipper. One of the tasks wast to meet with sales reps for the freight carriers and try to grind them on rates.

So I meet with our Canada Post rep, and she's a really cute girl, and today in a really short skirt. The meet's in the warehouse with just some chairs in a circle by my desk. There's me, the GM, and the rep. She's trying to balance her binders and info in her lap and make her presentation, she's right across from me and I can see right up her skirt. The GM see's what's going on and realize he can't see from where he is. he spends the whole meeting leaning over, craning his neck around and so on to get a peek.

At some point she clued in. That was the last time she dropped by and the for the next pitch we had a guy drop. Man I was pissed at the GM for scaring her off, and he was pissed at me for not trading seats with him.

Same here... I paid for expedited shipping, and they shipped it from ehobby the SAME DAY that I ordered it, (ehobby asia rocks), it arrived in Canada 2 days later, (Mar. 1) and has been sitting in Customs ever since.

Where's the "I Hate Customs" thread?
