You don't even know whether it's in Finland or in Europe yet? :blink:

 

If it's like my case, I didn't get an update for five days, then all of a sudden it said it's due to arrive the next day! So not all hope's lost!

No idea where it is.

 

Worst tracking ever!

What if you get both sets, though? You gonna return one?

 

Yes, of course. I just paid for one set. They are sending two sets because the USPS decided to change my shipping address and most likely they won't find anything with that address.

Maybe it’s the address?  Have them ship another box to me too, just to be sure.

 

Yes, that's the issue. The address in the first set is not correct so most likely the postal service in Spain will return it to them because they don't find that address.

Huh. That's really weird.

 

At least it should say where it is right now! Which continent.

I listened to it right away! :D

 

It's 8 hours, so I figured by the time I'm through with this set (really listened to it carefully several times and internalised it), Christmas has probably come and gone already...

Im still enjoying Christmas music so waiting is no issues plus I am off all next week so there will be time enough.

WTH! Are they (the postal guys and gals) going on holiday break on the 17th? That should be unacceptable! 


I found this "estimated delivery period" in a random tracking website. No other website or app says anything about this delay.
I think it's probably an exaggerated estimate, plus it makes little to no sense at all, since it was delayed at customs in Milan for days.
Why would they send the package to Florence just to delay delivery more? If something was wrong with it, I think it would've stayed in Milan.

@redishere wow, that's totally crazy... Is it Italian mail usually that bad?


Italian everything is usually this bad.  😂
Trains, buses, postal service, overall bureaucracy and so on… 

The only thing I can't complain about is food, landscapes and archeological sites.

Pizza is incredible though.

Aaaand now I'm hungry.

I'm going to open in in new years eve, because I sent it to my parents' and that when I'm going to visit them in the holidays. I have never had issues with mail there in my hometown and in the city where I live now, one neighbour from the next set of apartments came to my house with a package because the postman had delivered it to his mailbox. The address was printed correctly...

Three things I love about Italy! 

 

Pizza, pasta, and Italian girls! Not necessarily in that order. 😂🇮🇹

In many ways, the John Williams Harry Potter scores are Christmas scores! Each one has some connection to Christmas and winter...

 

Christmas music, snowball fight music, change of season music, etc.

And Easter too.

Mine just departed LA...two days ago. And there the tracking stops. Must be flying over the world waiting for the airport to clear a landing track...

 

If it just departed, obviously, it's in transit right now. Meaning it's traveling on a plane.

 

What are you expecting? For your status to say, "Right now your set is flying 30,000 feet over the Atlantic ocean?" :D

You didn't get my sarcasm ...it departed LA, just 2 days ago 😛

There's good pizza in other countries too (I tried a really tasty one in London a while ago, 

I can't remember where), but when I see someone eating frozen or precooked atrocities, 

or worse overcooked pasta, I wish I could invite him or here to try a real neapolitan pizza 

or to eat a full meal at my grandma's.

But, let's not forget shitty postal service 😡


As for girls, I seriously don't know what British girls are like 😄

There are literally an incalculable number of ways to make pizza. There are even good frozen pizzas( though there is that inverse relation between cost and quality). As for pasta. Its never the star for me. Its the sauce thats star. Unless you count dumplings.

But you ordered from LLL before, right? Did it always take so long?

I've been to Italy many times! In general, Italian pizza and pasta are unbeatable. Of course, you can get great pizza and pasta anywhere in the world (if you can find a good restaurant), but I mean in general.

@ArpySo how many business days for yours does that make it? Mine left LLL last Friday, so 7 (which is pretty good, all things considered). 

 

Your package travelled all the way to Australia in the same time that mine was crawling across LA, and you're complaining? 😛

Or... it might be an estimate based on experience and previous shipments...

Still, there's a major difference in how the sauce and pasta blend depending on it's cooked to the point of sogginess versus al dente, for example. 

I never want it al dente but I never want it soggy. Italian food is way down on the list for me anyways. Our go to is Mexican and Chinese. But I wouldn't mind having a house elf to do the cooking.

EDIT: While this was uploading IT CAME!!!

 

Wow, impressively fast! We're in the same postal zone too. :P

 

So even though mine shipped over a week before yours, you got your copy the morning after I got mine. Not too shabby. Gotta wonder what the heck goes on at customs.

Actually, it’s my first time with LLL!

But Italian Postal Service is indeed a joke. Silly aliens probably work there, like in MIB2

 

PS: all this broken teeth ordeal is making me nervous :(

I received all four titles in pristine condition. But then,every single Quartet title had something broken. You can't win! ;)

I just noticed something...

 

While many of us talk about customs, none of us so far had to it pay duties for the HP set, right? I didn't see anybody mentioning it, even once. 


I was just thinking of that.
Finger crossed! :D
