Phat Lewt #002: GSC Goodies Galore!

4 08 2010

There were certainly Good Smiles all around for me when a package came in the mail last Friday…

Though I didn’t actually receive the package until SATURDAY. It seems the mailman forgot to leave the pickup slip when they attempted to deliver this package. I was expecting this package, and as it was shipped via EMS, I was anticipating its every move as I tracked it, and on Friday I found out that it was in “Retention” at a zip code matching mine. I knew it had to be at the post office! The nearest post office to my home is a hop, skip, and a jump away. Seriously only takes me about 2 minutes to walk there. So I text messaged my hubby asking him to check the mail as soon as he got home (as he arrives home before I do) , and to meet me at the post office so that I could pick it up without delay, as the post office was on my way home, with the bus stop right across the street from it.

He later responds to me that there was no slip to be found. My heart fell and my excitement died. “What? No slip? Are you sure?” He’s sure he’s sure.

So I go straight home and check the mailbox for myself; of course there’s nothing to be found. Disappointment sets in as I moodily slip inside my home. I attempt to check the tracking again later that evening, and found the same results, the last scan revealing the package was in “Retention”.

The next day I drop by my local post office to try my luck and check to see if there was such a package. “Hmmm….yup, looks like there’s a package here. Weird how you didn’t get a slip.” Damn that mailman! So I sign for the package, went grocery shopping, then came to pick up the package and whisk it away home to relish the goodies from Good Smile Company’s Winter WonderFest 2010 lineup.
