the inefficient post office

Good morning.
I've just returned from cleaning the Salon. If all goes well, I'll be cleaning the Salon just one more time.   :-)
 It was a so-so week, and at the end of Saturday, we went over to Reno's to enjoy the sun and good food.
 Last week, I ordered a case for my new phone. The phone is kind of slick and I'd hate to drop it.
So I went on E-bay and ordered one. Was only $4.73 with free shipping. It was shipped the next day by the US Postal Service.
But the postal service is a mess! You remember the certified letter I sent to the landlord that disappeared?
Well, it's been over a week and I've yet to receive it. Look at the tracking info below. It reads from bottom to top.
It left CA and went to a regional sorting facility in Ohio (purple arrow). From there, to Grand Rapids MI (white arrow). It then should have come to Lansing, but instead went back to Ohio (green arrow). Then to Owosso MI (orange arrow) about 30 miles north east of Lansing. Realizing it was sent to the wrong place, it for some strange reason, then went to Pennsylvania (blue arrow), where it was last scanned.

It'll be interesting to see if it actually does eventually get here.
It's looking to be a nice weekend (for me) so hope to get some nice walks in.
That's it for now.

    Wow.. We're having a problem with the postman putting our mail in the dead box below ours. Luckily, I caught him one day an explained that this was happening and he put a bright orange envelope stating "BOX EMPTY". Apparently, some of our mail sat in there for 3 weeks.
    Also, we are on a swing route, which means that on a daily basis the postman with the least mail that day picks up our town-home community to deliver to.

  2. That is good news on only cleaning the salon one more time. They won't know what to do without you!

    I have seen that happen with the post office so many times. And they wonder why people stop using the postal service.

    Hope you get it! Have a great week!
