    Well hopefully a happy resolution is under way.

    Just talked to my postmaster, and according to him it shows in their system as being at the sort facility for my area.

    So basically my carrier scanned it when he was at a neighbor's house and put it with their OUTgoing mail, and I should get it tomorrow.

    He said he was going to have a talk with the carrier this afternoon and sincerely apologized for the screwup.

    It may still turn up. I think mail carriers are under pressure to deliver DC'd packages in a certain time, even if they aren't actually delivered. Since I moved into a new subdivision last year where they have banks of mailboxes for all the houses in one spot, more than once I've had a card show through ebay tracking as delivered, only to have it actually show up in my mailbox the next day. Either that or she continually messes up which box it should go in, and that person puts it in the outgoing mail and she sorts it out. Or maybe the carrier just decided to "deliver" some stuff and went to the movies or something instead.

    Thanks [MENTION=2077]smapdi[/MENTION]

    The postmaster says it should be delivered tomorrow.

    Just glad to know it wasn't one of my neighbors.
