Default The reason I didn;t ship for 2 weeks is because of Sandy

How many of those do you think will pop up here this week ?
I am betting a Plethora.






Guy paid for his auction today. I am debating mailing it to NYC for his benefit and mine, for at least 7-9 days.
Sent him an email anyway.

but I do expect a lot of BS on shipping.

Two weeks is absurd, yes, but it looks like all of my shipments that usually would have gone out today will go out Wednesday instead. Small setback, but anyone that says more than 2 days (outside of those in AC) are wasting time.

Heck I assumed a guy didn't pay me because of Sandy. I even messaged him first to say "please take your time and I am from Louisiana. I know too well what you guys are facing right now." No, it was an Ebay glitch giving me his address in the Bahamas even though he's in an American state.

Well, in addition to not shipping, I also didn't sh*t for 2 weeks because of Sandy.
