Default FREAKING OUT...

So I purchased the Andre Johnson 2012 Chrome Super off eBay last week and went to check tracking info a bit ago and it shows as being delivered this morning. Guess what......... it wasn't in my damn mailbox and now I'm flipping out. The PO is closed and I'm going bonkers wondering if it was put in the wrong mailbox or just updated and not delivered yet. Not the way I wanted to start the week off.

Anyone know if I'm out the money I spent since it says delivered if they did indeed put it in the wrong box???

The online updates can be screwy sometimes. Give it a day or two.

Dont worry, had this happen three times. All popped up, hopefully same for you.. But it does happen alot, not quite sure how since they have to scan it, but they usually pop up.

Wife said it showed up today, funny I'm still antsy since i haven't seen it,lol. Still cannot understand WHY a mail carrier would update it as delivered a day BEFORE they actually do, makes ZERO sense to me.

Probably some performance metric is tied to delivery time and they are skewing the numbers for their office. Just a guess

No, we do not have any performance benchmarks as far as time goes, just that we scan the item.

Here is a break down on the scanner screen:

Delivered
Attempted
Undeliverable as Addressed
Refused
ETC
ETC

The clerk will have other options like Arrival. Maybe they meant to scan it one way, and did so another.

I've seen him at the zoo, he's way uglier than Rocky. Has his own tent to hide his face from the kiddies.
