RE: What have you got on order ?
In my rural community it actually happens all the time. It's almost a game; the mail comes, then we all go around to various houses delivering them where they were supposed to have gone. I've never lost one; the neighbors are good with swapping things out properly. Complaints have fallen, naturally, on deaf ears.

I had FedEx one time deliver a $2000 mattress set in 5 large boxes to my house by mistake. I made them sort it though. Too big and heavy for me to do the routing for them. Silliness. Ineptitude. Carelessness. Indifference.

RE: What have you got on order ?
I've been checking the Neighbors and p.o. but nothing before i made a claim i did try to get it sorted before I claimed because I've bought a few times of the seller to give him the chance to get it sorted but I'm not prepared to wait indefinitely, and he didn't seem to be sorting anything out and at £61 I'm not going to let them get away with it! The place i bought them from was an eBay shop so i would have thought I would get a better service from them, I guess you don't find out till something goes wrong lol

No different to here then. The indifference is the thing that really annoys me - and that is what causes all the other things.

RE: What have you got on order ?
Ordered a Hotcig G217 as I fancy a new mod. Haven't bought one this year. And at $19.06 it seemed to be too good to be true.

We'll see when it arrives. Which will be a while as Chinese New Year is upon us and the whole country will be closed for a couple of weeks and the shipping chaos afterwards tends to be impressive.

Looks good Don - and a brilliant price. What colour did you go for - the black one looks the best.

Yes - I don't like brightly coloured mods.

I was going to get the Smoant Battlestar squonker but have just found out that it only adjusts in 1W increments so no good to me.[Image: sad.gif]

RE: What have you got on order ?
It'll be my first mod of the year.

I think my official count of mods and atties now definitely qualifies as "too many".
