Arg. Once again waiting on parts. The piece I’m waiting on (new handlebars for the project bicycle) was supposed to arrive Thursday.
Lost in the system 3 hours and 9 minutes after shipping.
Three hours and nine minutes!
That must be a record or something!
And ignore that June 19th lie. That is clearly a digital band-aid USPS put on their tracking that automatically updates every day to “Everything is fine!”
This was it on Wednesday:
And then on Thursday it magically changed!
But ultimately hasn’t moved. So much so I no longer get the “expected delivery” banner. Just “Nah its cool man!”
At least it isn’t a $250 pulley I need to put my car back together...
And yes, as discussed in that post I realize USPS is seriously overworked and understaffed right now and my bike parts aren’t exactly medical supplies. The point of a rant is to make me feel better, not point out how huge portions of the population have much, much better things to worry about.
I ordered a backup on Thursday but it isn’t supposed to arrive until Sunday. However is ALSO shipped USPS so.... Time to order a third?
Nah if the 2nd falls through I’ll hit up the good local bike shop and have them set me up with a new stem and drop bars because fuck it.
Thank you for coming to my rant. Off to work on something else...
