A few days ago our mail carrier actually lost a Priority Mail package we were expecting. We had been tracking the package each day because it contained repair parts we needed desperately for one of our computers… so it was somewhat of a surprise on the projected delivery day to see that the tracking results already showed the package marked as “delivered.”
The woman at the post office remembered the package. The mail carrier remembered the package and he also remembered that he had not delivered the package to our address. However, he did NOT remember delivering the package to any other address, and he especially did not remember scanning the package as delivered.
Four days passed and the package was still missing. On the fifth day the mail carrier delivered the package and a note of apology.
So where had the package been for those five days? We were so glad to finally get the repair parts, we didn’t ask.
