High Priority?

What do you suppose they do to the mail that's not "Priority"?

Now THAT is shocking. I'd need your super-analyst even more after being treated that way.

melissaknits said...

Wow. They must have totally run out of tape and empty priority bags.

Linda said...

Sacrilege! Your poor yarn hanging out there, RUBBER-BANDED to the packaging. No wonder the USPS is losing business to private carriers.

kmkat said...

What, they ran out of plastic bags? You could demand recompense for the pain and suffering endured by your yarn.

Tammy said...

Nice. I hope the contents are still salvageable.

BTW, I know Good Yarns well, and she would most definitely maturely analyze the situation. But me... I'd freak out! React, then think. It's just the way I roll.

Kristin said...

That's just plain rude!

*shaking head in utter disbelief*

I feel guilty, somehow...:( Please let me know if it was damaged, seriously!

My spelling and typing were so bad that I had to delete my comment.

WOW. I have my issues with Canada Post... but I've never received a parcel that was torn in half and tied back together.

Oh no!!

Once I received a package of yarn that was taped back together. Of course they stuck the tape to the yarn and the yarn was mohair. Emphasis on the was.

Katie said...

Oh my goodness! Did you cry? I think I just might if my package showed up like that.

Anonymous said...

Holy cow!! Did you take it to the post office to complain?!!

...Sarah said...

Wow, is it ripped or did they strap a sheep to your package?

I refused shipment on a package recently that looked like they had rolled it down the CN Towers stairs and taped it back up again.

Kim said...

Holy crap! What did the post office do to your yarn! Priority mail is sort of an oxymoron in the case of your sad lost yarn.

craftivore said...

That is disgusting. These days if your package isn't priority with delivery confirmation, it feels like you're just dumping it into the trashbin. I think all these expensive shipping options have actually caused mail to go downhill.

Sharon said...

Oh the humanity! I hope the yarn's OK and in usable condition.

toni in florida said...

Should we take comfort in the fact that they didn't tie it back together using some of that yarn? I was staring at it, open-mouthed, when a coworker wandered over to see what had me all agape. Then we both stared at it in disbelief for at least a full minute. Cripes.

Laurie said...

Oh, my! So very sad! You should do some kind of yarn-karma cleansing ceremony to get rid of the bad energy that poor yarn has picked up in its torturous travels!

Wow! Did it really show up that way?? You're post office is worse then mine and that's sayin' somethin'!
