Long weekend - not happy

Never fails, I order from the US and run into a long weekend, which puts the delivery date back a day. My saddle has been thro customs and has been processed in Mississauge and is on it's way. A hitchhiker could bring it faster as it won't be here until Wed. It was only two days from Kansas City MO yet it takes 4 business days in Canada.

Saddlebag, the delay of arrival will make the opening of the package that much more enjoyable

i feel ya. getting packages here takes 2-3 weeks if im lucky...my mom could send the expedited 2-3 business days but itll still take about 3 weeks....and then i have to wait for lazy a** mailroom guy to be open....

i work from 0700-1530...it takes 20 min to get back to the barracks from work..his hours are 1300-1600 mon-fri (excluding thurs) and 1300-1430 on thursday...if he has a training day thats another day waiting....theyre not open saturday or sun.

so its a crapshoot to try and get anything....my last package my mom sent had bread in it and by the time i got it it was just a block of green mold :(.

but when you do iget it its REALLY exciting because you waited so long hahahahahha
