I've noticed things further away from me get delivered fast than those that are closer i assumed maybe the further away ones are just a straight shot on a big truck and maybe the ones closer have to go three a bunch of little post offices just like a greyhound could be wrong just a thought

Maybe the seller is really in a different location than eBay's records show. That would be my guess. I'm thinking of one in particular.

That's OK, roughly 50 percent of mine are "missent."

As in, the seller ships them out just fine and they arrive just fine to the last stop before they get to my post office for delivery — then they get sent to another couple of places before they finally arrive at my post office. Then they get delivered.

So like, if I'm counting on a card to get to me on a Thursday or Friday so I can take it to a show that weekend, it usually shows up on the Monday after.

Good times. Good times.

What is up with your PO?? I mean really..stuff gets to me so fast, but I do live near DC..maybe it is the mojo or something.."don't screw with the government!!"
