Hi all. I currently am trying to gather parts for a stovepipe alarm setup http://www.hearth.com/talk/threads/my-digital-stovepipe-thermometer-build.105401/#post-1375546 , and have just had a huge issue with a parcel delivery failure. Here is the description of my problem from the other thead: Went to the mailbox today and it was open! As in, the front door to the whole mailbox was not locked and swinging in the breeze. For you guys in the US, I dont think you have our style of rural "super" mailboxes where several people share one common box, that has individual boxes within it. Pic below. When the mailman comes, he uses his key that opens the entire front door so he can fill the boxes without it taking too long. Now what Canada post does is put any parcels in the large box (left picture, bottom row) and put a key in your personal box (smaller boxes) that fits the "parcel" box. They used to send these parcels to the main post office for pickup, now only extremely large parcels have to go to the post office building. Now guess what... thats right, there was the key to the parcel box in my personal box. That means I had a parcel! But the front door of the mailbox was open (all boxes on the left hand mailbox were open to the outside, including the parcel box) and there was nothing in the parcel box! I imagine that that parcel was one of the ones I was expecting for my build! I called canada post, and they sent out an investigator who said i need to contact the shipper.. except I have no idea what parcel it was (expecting 3). And it gets better, the delivery guy that day was a substitute. Which explains why he forgot to lock the main door. Anyways they wont take any responsibility for their obvious negligence, nor do they know what parcel it was. Im so friggin pissed! What do I do now? Should I wait till the remaining parcels come in, so I know whats missing? Should I file a claim with paypal? Do I have a time limit? Its not really the shippers fault that it got lost, its the damn post offices fault.. Im not a regular on ebay, only a few purchases that went through without problems, so any advise here is appreciated!! I dont like to cross post, but I hope this will get more attention over here as opposed to the Hearth Room.
