@andrewkl@Felton10@Ignorant You should be glad it wasn’t Vietnamese fish sauce. Now that stinks really bad when it breaks. Someone sent us a bottle, no bubble wrap, in the mail. It broke and the post office put it on the back deck of the post office and called us to find out if it was toxic. Umm well yeah, in my opinion it was (although not in the way they were thinking) as it stinks to high heaven, not in a good way, and tastes even worse. I was sad for my daughter though as she loves the stuff and in some cities (like the one we lived in, and actually in this one too) you can’t find it.
Friday for me,for that sweet, sweet bubble wrap too!
Does anyone know if the FedEx tracking package dimension details are accurate? Mine says 6”x4”x1” but that seems like a pretty tiny IRK or most likely a placeholder dimension…
@blaineg Actually yesterday mine said delivery today having not yet left TX. I am ok with it not having left TX. I do not want my irk on a truck that will crash in this weather. Then I will have dual regret - for my lost irk and for the truck driver.
Thursday delivery with what much of the weather the country is experiencing or will be experiencing? Good luck with that. Especially in the south where the world ends with 1/4" of snow or tiny patches of ice.
@Felton10@Vrysen DFW (Meh-HQ) is currently snowed in. Yes, it’s only like 2-3 inches. But this is north Texas. We have next to no experience nor equipment to deal with this. If your IRK didn’t go out before Sunday, it could be a while. Sorry.
@gt0163c@Vrysen It shows mine was in Irving Texas on Sat night and no further info after that. I was really looking forward to getting my IRK on Thursday-even more than my Covid vaccine shot scheduled for Wed.
@Felton10 Woo-hoo for getting vaccinated! I got my second shot about 2.5 weeks ago (immune system fully operational…still waiting for my DNA to mutate and allow my super powers to manifest). Hopefully your side effects are minor. I had no problem with the first shot (Moderna variant) but the second one kicked my butt for about a day-day and a half. Then I was fine. It wasn’t fun, but the sense of relief was well worth feeling crappy for a bit. And hopefully your IRK made it out before DFW ground to a snowy halt. Otherwise, it could be a while. No one is going anywhere fast around here right now.
Mine is still processing. With snow-mageddon heading my way (supposed to hit here tonight) I don’t expect to see it any time soon. Stay safe Texas peeps - we are used to snow up here but I know it’s way different down there!
Well, mine made it out of Texas in time and is currently in Arizona. I live in California and it is due to arrive on Thursday. After it arrives and I see the contents, I might actually hope it had been snowed in.
Mine is still processing too. I think if they got them sent out quickly they are good, those of us who are still stuck in processing might be there for a while since Texas is so effed up with weather right now. Gotta take a patience pill!!
@Dakini At least yours if safe the the warehouse maybe not even assembled yet-those of us whose IRK has shipped-who knows where in the heck it is and what condition it is in. Only thing worse than crap is frozen crap.
@Kidsandliz Well we got their OK before we sent it. She sent my wife an IM yesterday afternoon saying a big box came with her name on it, but she couldn’t open it until her dad got home. Last night she wanted to know if we could get a similar sized Mickey to keep Minnie company.
I’m not too worried about the IRK, it’s probably not perishable. But thanks to the USPS, I’m probably getting a week overdue delivery of dead tropical aquarium mini shrimp today. For some reason they shipped it east instead of west, and then stored it in TN for days when the snowpocalypse hit. I don’t have a lot of hope for the little guys.
I’d guess that even when TX warms up and comes back to functioning, there is going to be a huge jam-up of packages going either way and it will take quite a while to work through. Trying to be patient here…
Just got notification my box of regret (and possibly bubble wrap), has shipped via FedEx. Delivery scheduled for Friday. I’m kinda sorta excited. But then again watching paint dry is kinda sorta exciting at the moment.
