They can put it in the mail and tell you when it should be expected but the mail might not be much able to hurry right now. Even when it was for Mother’s Day. Tracking told him it was delivered, then they said no it wasn’t, then they said it would be, and then it wasn’t.

Finally, at 6 pm tonight, my Mother’s Day present arrived.

My phone is being obstinate and not letting go of the photo just yet.

To be continued.

Edited in the morning to add the picture of cheerful, teasing sibling rivalry in a mug. From the taller kid.

Let me “one up you”. I ordered a few items from a UK retailer. Shipping was supposed to take 3-7 days, with slight delay in shipping because of lockdown. It was despatched within 3 days. Then spent 5 days waiting at a shipping dock. Must have taken a boat, or something, to Long Beach. Then went to New York, before going through UPS and then USPS. After nearly a month, it arrived, broken, in a crushed and torn box, with a single piece of “fragile” tape near the address label. I am NOT happy!
