So I bought something from a guy on this board. He lives in southern CA (I'm in Birmingham, AL). I sent a money order in a plain 'ol white envelope on February 2nd. I figure my purchase would be in the mail on its way to me by the 8th or 10th, right?
NO... The money didn't show and didn't show and didn't show. I almost got another one to re-send (fortunately we weren't talking much money). Then FINALLY I got a message yesterday (February 20th!) that it had arrived.
It took EIGHTEEN DAYS for a letter to get from Birmingham, AL to southern CA. Am I the only one that thinks that's ridiculous?!?!?
FTR, the guy I bought from was very patient, and will soon be getting a good review in the "good folks to buy from" thread.
