Waiting for Delivery

Ordered some books for my grandson On the Friday that recently passed, Expecting a next-day delivery Since Amazon gets things done fast. Got a notice the order was processed, Then a follow-up it would be late, So instead of the 15th arrival, I was given a different date. Told my son to remain on the lookout For by Sunday or Monday it should Be deposited on their front doorstep But I started to doubt if it would. By this morning, when checking the order, It said, “Sorry, your books may be lost. Please reorder or ask for a refund.” Somehow somebody’s signals got crossed. I will try once again but I realized Just how spoiled I’ve gotten to be, Yet I hope my grandson’s disappointment Is with Amazon rather than me!

This is consternating and concerning. Do you think it was delivered to the wrong house? How did they figure it out? We supposedly had a package delivered on Jan 13th - still looking for it. It came by US Postal service and they say they have confirmation it was delivered. Not sure how since no one here signed or saw it except maybe Buddy.

next day delivery is indeed one of the wonders of the times we live in, and easy to get spoiled by such great service... but yes it disappoints whenever mail or shipment "may be lost"... i'm sure your dear grandson will find you not guilty... another great write, my friend

My daughter's sentiments EXACTLY! Aloha! - As an afterthought, when Uncle Sam sent me to Germany, Germans had morning AND afternoon mail deliveries whilst the USA struggled to make ONE delivery per day . . . .
