ok my days is going straight to %!%#$

I sent my package out today which consisted of going to town a 49 minute drive i ahd to be there before 12 they close at 12pm. alright! i am going to get there by 11am plenty of time. WRONG

The only post offce open is on POST a military base which i can not go or att he main post offcie central which closes at 11:30 which takes 45 more minutes to get to.

So in my brain says go back home to the local Post offce they close at 12... NO they close the office at 11:00 and leave the lobby open till 12. But the helpful staff standing outside told me i can go over to S______ they go by alabama time and they stay open till 1pm its is now 1159 and i am behind the slowest drivers on earth stopping at every yard sale and talking to every person on the side of the road.

i make it to the post office at 1236pm.. and go stand in line. they are at least 45 people standing around.  only 10 of actually are there to use the post office. The rest are there for gossip, coffee and to have local friendly meet and greet session.

i finally make it to the window. here is goes

Worker: hey aint you ____ sister?

me: yes ma'am

Worker: aint you the one who use to date so and so in high school?

Me: yes ma'am

Worker: are you sending this package?

Me: yes ma'am

Worker: Why you sending it there? i thought your folks came from down yonder in miami

ME: yes ma'am i do but.........

Worker to someone in the back: " hey yall knows <my brother name> has folks livin in ______"

ME : ma'am i just want to send this package please

Worker:  ok its this much $$$$ ... please fill out this form.........

Me ma'am does this include a dc# number?

Worker: " nahhh just callem up in about a couple of weeks and it should be there honey"

Me: ma'am i ereally need a dc number

Worker : we dont givem for out the country for forgien deliveries.

Me:.........."ok" ... numbly walking back out the door........

I walk back to my truck stopped by people i dont remember and or dont know asking me questions about my family....

i sit in the truck and look over to my kid and she says "mom we dont ahve to come back over here do we?"

tell me that is is true...... they dont really have dc numbers for flat rate boxes or did that woman lie to me!!!!!

Partner its on the way....  both swaps are in the same box

You poor thing!  I also live in a podunk town in the South.  I have sent internationally twice within the last month.  The first time I went to the P.O. I asked about DC tracking and was told they don't do that internationally.  The second time, I was told by someone different that the customs form you filled out has a tracking number on it, and that's the DC number.  Luckily, both boxes arrived safely.  If someone has the definitive answer to this one, that would be great as I have another international package going out later this week.

okay- I'm gonna take a little break before I get really frustrated and make the problem worse. Hopefully I'll be able to post in the gallery a little later today.

Whoa RavenzTarot!  sorry you had so much trouble getting the package sent out!  And yeah, they don't give DC numbers for packages going to other countries, its a pain in the butt, but whatev. 

I got your package sent out on time!  Canada Post is slow as all hell, so I'd say it'll be about 3 weeks before you get it. (Boo Canada Post).

I've spent a ridiculous amount of time on one of your items too, but not because it's so spectacular,  just because I'm so SLOW!!!

Feedback will be awesome!  I have been considering a few different swaps that are open right now, trying to make sure I don't go over my limit.  Who knew swapping would be so addictive?
