This is me, not playing Scribblenauts.

I preordered a copy of Scribblenauts and Amazon shipped it last week via extra-slow snail mail.  I kept visiting their site to track the package, and it finally said that it had arrived at the local post office this morning.

So I get in my car and drive allllllll the way over there (it's about 15 minutes away), but my box was empty.  I wait in line for about 5 minutes and finally get to the front.  I ask about my package.  Yes, they have it.  It came in too late for them to put it in my box.  And no, they can't just give it to me, I have to wait until tomorrow.


So I'm going to have to drive a half-hour round trip again to pick up the package that's right there on the counter.   Augh!  If the Postal Service is that rigid, no wonder they're losing money.

As if that wasn't enough of a kick in the teeth, I just missed the barber and he wouldn't be back for 3 hours AND the Dairy Queen clone in town is closed on Tuesdays.  So it really was a totally wasted trip.

It's hard to believe that there is any such postal regulation where they can't just hand you the package. The clerks at my local post office never had a problem going to the back room to look for my package when I asked for it at the counter. Maybe you ought to file a complaint to at least get them to explain what the deal is.

Yes, same here. Never had a problem as long as they were open, and do file a complaint.
