This is from an item that I ordered on October 7th:
Nothing I've ever ordered from the U.S. via USPS had ever taken more than 7 business days from the time I submitted the order until it arrived on my doorstep. It took one week for the company to process the order (all items which were marked "in stock"), nearly one week for USPS to fully ship it... and then it spent ten more days at Canadian customs.
Either I'm on yet-another black list, somewhere, or some people really don't know how to do their job. This is the kind of shit that makes me take my [considerable] business elsewhere - easy to do for the company in question, and maybe USPS, but not so much for Canadian customs.
