What about delivery people who like to play jenga by putting your softest and most fragile items at the bottom? Pic my wife took today at our door...

It's not just the number of days; my reputation as a client of an auction house is at stake and threatened because the postal service can't do its job in a timely manner. It's embarrassing. Reputations are made over decades but can be lost in a moment. Had I had any inkling that 10 days would not be adequate for delivery of payment for an auction winning, trust me, I would have found another way.

But why should I have assumed that 10 days would be inadequate? Now my invoice is "past due" and I am embarrassed and angry as all get out. I take business transactions seriously. Too bad the postal system does not.

I would call the auction house and inform them of what has happened. Good customer relations are built on trust. Since you probably dealt with them over a period of time and it is the first time your payment is late; due to circumstances beyond your control; they will probably overlook the penaly of interest. A phone call/communication goes a long way!

Apparently most of those boxes had like one bottle of shampoo or box of chocolates in them. My wife doesn't drive so she has taken to getting almost everything delivered. She still doesn't know what to get our 14yo son for xmas.

Ah, 14. I got my heart's desire, which was a black leather jacket. And a reel-to-reel tape recorder, which my all-thumbs hands had endless difficulty with.

Reel to reel? Wow, I remember having a wire recorder, way back in the 50's

I had a FedEx driver think it was a brilliant idea to throw a delivery of "soup in a pouch" and beef jerky over the fence where my German Shepherds were waiting. It was an explosion of pooping for the next three days while they cleared out the chorizo and 5 pounds of beef jerky.
