United States Postal Service at it's finest
Wow, I think things have gone from bad to worse with our Postal system and no one seems to really care. Plastic baggy or not, my mail that used to take three days to deliver, now takes up to a week and sometimes longer. I ordered this die last month. Which means it took them a whole month to let me know they destroyed my package but no, they don't really care enough to cover the cost of their own damage.
I'm sending my dear Husband down to the Post Office to chew on someones ear for a while. It will make us both feel better, lol.
I think what bothers me the most is that all kinds of on-line retailers are starting to use alternate shipping methods to avoid the long delays and I am finding that it still takes just as long, if not longer, and the cost of shipping is getting higher and higher with all these changes. The USPS does not need to cut more jobs, reroute more mail and raise the price of stamps again. They just need to get better at doing their job.
Okay, climbing off my soapbox now. lol.
Added - Amber from Chic and Savvy Crafters insisted on giving me a partial refund for this even though I swore when I reordered that this was no fault of hers. Thank You Amber! So sweet and it was not even her fault. From what I could tell, there were no tears or loose tape on the package at all.
