Speaking of unusual shipping experiences, I am currently trying to chase down a drum tuner I sent to a customer in Italy.  I shipped it July 3 USPS. It made it to Miami FL within a couple days, but then took a month to move between two buildings in Miami.  The last scan says it left Miami almost 3 weeks ago but the customer in Italy still has not seen or heard anything.  The Italian postal service says they are open and operating so no obvious answer, or transit scan for over two weeks. The USPS claims to be open and working.  ::)

The tuner shipped to Italy finally arrived two months later....  :eek:

Speaking of unsolicited packages, I recently got a package from Cambodia with a customs declaration saying it contained a hand towel. ::) Felling through the soft envelope it feels like a cheap spit mask... but I am not interested enough to open it up to see. 

It may be a brushing scam like all those seed packets.
