About three weeks ago I ordered a package from the US that contained some gifts of a christmas nature and as of today they still hadn't arrived and I was beginning to wonder where the hell they were given that they were shipped UPS. As coincidence would have it, I was just writing a mail to the supplier to ask where the stuff was when UPS themselves called. Imagine my complete and total lack of surprise when they told me they'd tried delivering the package three times last week but I wasn't there. Imagine my slight irritation when I told them no note had been dropped through the letterbox telling me they had tried delivering the package but I wasn't there.
Still, they're delivering it on friday morning, so I should be around then. If not I'll sort something else out.
