THE POSTAL SERVICE F**KEN SUX

ok so the package was supposed to be delivered today before noon, so like a good boy i stayed home from school. well it never came, so i went up to the postal office, waited in line for an hour.... then i found out that they lost my package in transit, or well it got on the plane last night from florida, but it never got off, and that was the last they had heard of it.:mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: :twisted: :twisted: :mad: :evil:

I hate the post office here, but love UPS. I am waiting for 'pods that were supposed to be here today for my guys-and they didnt show either. And they are only coming from St Augustine.

I'm sure many people have the opposite reaction. Just depends who the manager is where you live.

Make sure you are totally re-imbersed. In situations like that I always try to make a fuss, so that it doesnt get overlooked. So the package is totally off the map? ie lost in oblivion. If it were me I would (try to) make them pay for the contents, even if they get to you late. A cuttle egg that has been in transit for too long probably has a lower chance of survival, so even if you do eventually get them, they could be called "damaged".

Thank God

:biggrin2: :biggrin2: :biggrin2: :biggrin2: :biggrin2: :biggrin2: :biggrin2:


I recieved the package at 1: 15 today (still later then 12:00), ready to sea a bunch of dead cuttle eggs.... well i was pleasantly surprised when i saw 9 active baby cuttles and two unhached eggs but inflated. of the 9 hatched, 1 seems to have some birth defect where his body is realy long and his head very small, another seems to be sickly and most likey wont make it, but the other seven seem very very active, the only prob is that non of them will eat. I also have two more eggs waiting so the future looks good. I still cant believe they lived
:razz:

Great! I love this story!

Don't freak them out by trying to feed them too much. Sometimes they like to eat right away, but I have had some that haven't eaten for a couple of days after hatching.

What are you offering them for food?
