    No. No it was not. It was not successfully delivered. My mailbox had my Jugheads shipment, junk mail, and nothing. Not even a card. Where's my Canvape package, Canada Post? The one you said was successfully delivered? Yes, I know you told me that sometimes they'll scan a package as delivered in the morning because the driver doesn't have one of those handheld scanners, but you'd sort of think that if it couldn't fit in my mailbox they might leave, I don't know, a notice?

    So I'll have to wait 'til tomorrow to see what happens and if it needs to be traced. *sigh*

    I've had this happen before. I went to the post office and she said it was weird but expected with CP, her best suggestion was to wait til tomorrow because they'll often not leave the delivery notice until the next day. Lo and behold, next day I got a delivery notice and picked it up at the PO.

    Not cool man, not cool. If it shows up tomorrow and you are around you should bust out some "enhanced interrogation techniques" to find out what happened here.

    Do not even get me started.....

    1 package was held in the "black hole" of Canada Post for the weekend
    the other one tracking freaked me out as the last update was "redirected to new address" (even though I didn't move) and then successfully delivered.

    They need to get their act together!

    That's really weird about the redirected address, Zero. I've never seen nor heard of that one, but apparently the delivered status before delivery and missing notice cards are common (according to my post office lady)

    What sucks though is that they didn't even try to deliver it. No one buzzed up, no one left a card, they just buggered off. Probably just said "sod it" and dropped it off at the local PO and I won't see the card 'til tomorrow, 'cos that's what they do now -- no same-day pickups at the PO anymore.

    Ahhh yes, the weak link rears it's ugly head again! Here's a couple for ya! One order placed last Wednesday from Vancouver Island and shipped the same day. Another order placed last Sunday and shipped on Monday morning (yesterday!), both packages arrived in Edmonton this morning! What does this prove? There must be a black hole hanging over the Rocky Mountains or something that manages to suck in CP packages ands make them disappear for a little while! Then there is also the vapemail package that arrives at the post office and a card is delivered to my house informing me I can pick it up the next day. When I arrived at the post office, I signed for my package where it was then handed to me empty with a huge gaping tear in the bottom of the envelope. When I looked at the lacky behind the counter with a look of WT* on my face, she looked down at the envelope and grabbed it and "well it's empty because it's got a hole in it!" I grabbed the envelope and walked away with a sigh knowing that the human race is doomed! Calling the 800 number to file a claim was an entirely different exercise in futility I might add!
    Yes, CP is the weak link!

    Yeah its weird, I've never had that happen before and got REALLY freaked out. I only had enough Geoff's Blend to last me a couple more days. But I got lucky and it was here before I got home from work.

    They seem to do that all the time with my packages at my building. I've called and complained a number of times of them not even attempting to deliver it. I have stood at my door watching stalking the mail person and seen no packages with him. I check the tracking a little later on in the day and "oops" looks like there was no answer when trying to deliver your package. Freaken BS! And just like you I get the delivery card the next business day. That's unacceptable IMO.

    I even mentioned to the last rep I spoke to would this happen if I lived in a house? She had no answer for me. :mad:

    Last three or so weeks dealing with Canadapost has been a nightmare. Never has been this bad. I hope they get it together again(well as much as they ever have) because it's starting to get ridiculous.

    Had this a while back. Turns out the package was delivered to my neighbors box. They were away so they didn't bring it over until a few days later. CP is the worst. Damn unions.

    I hate to be the bearer of bad news for you, but no it does not. I live in what is classified as a house (rooming house), and things are different....that is all i am going to say...it is by far less frustrating.

    On the same token, i have noticed that CP has now taking off their web site, and even when you send a package or letter via registered mail, you no longer have a "expected delivery date"

    Sadly i think they are doing all this as they are trying to prove that they need the new mail shorting location in Vancouver, something about there is a large increase in packages being sent (WOOHOO Vape community!) and how CP is loosing money by having to sort it all...i will dig the article up if you are interested?

    yeah....I got a card last week for my shipment from AVE saying to pick it up the next day....I called the PO and she said it was already there that evening.....I hate those guys.

    I used to get the same thing too, but what they appear to be doing now is not leaving the card until the next day. I probably could have checked my local PO to see if it really was there and picked it up without the card (which requires like half a dozen pieces of ID now that they are trying to become the TSA of postal security) but given the misleading tracking info I thought it would just be in my mailbox.

    In my younger years I'd been bizarrely compared to Michael J. Fox, but never Keiffer Sutherland. Now if you'll excuse me, I'M RUNNING OUT OF TIME!
