Snail Mail is Befitting

Wow.  This morning, I read about a letter that took 22 years to arrive.  I’m afraid she will be late for her nephew’s graduation, but at least it arrived.

This is especially important to me because our business is all about shipping books to customers as quickly as possible.  Occasionally we get emails from customers inquiring about their order.  This is almost always concerning international orders and 99% of the time the fault is the Customs in the target country and not the Post Office.

I don’t think we have ever really had a totally lost package.

We have had a few happenings, though.  One time we sent a large box by Express Mail (EMS) to Japan.  EMS should arrive in 3-5 days.  A month later we got word it was in Mexico.  Go figure.  It took its time to make its way back to us in Florida, but it did come back.

I just hope the box we sent wasn’t for a graduation gift.
