Got my short block in today.
I expected it yesterday and when tracking did not show any movement since the 26th, I call DHL to figure out what’s going on.
That was a stressful decision I regret making. What I learned, after calling them 5 separate times yesterday, was that a)it wasn’t going to be delivered yesterday b) it never made it to Portland c)it made it to Portland but was being held for a payment d)the Portland warehouse said they conducted a search and it’s not there and e)they have no way to actually call a DHL servicepoint and rely on emails.
I drove down the the local DHL spot, and asked about my tracking number. “Oh yeah it’s here. Getting ready to go out for delivery. Do you want it?”
I am not sure what the lesson of this exercise in patience was.
Just be patient and wait most likely...
