Box Delivered! Bunt Break Rescheduled (Again)!

Better late than never, I guess. After our box of Bunt came within just feet of my doorstep on its originally scheduled delivery date yesterday, after UPS lost the package, after UPS found the package and decided I should come pick it up, our box of Bunt is finally here! That means we’ll be busting it open tomorrow, Saturday May 13 2017 at 5pm C. Be here then to watch the break live, or come back later to watch the replay!

For now, watch me bust a blaster of Bunt!

At approximately 1pm Central time, tracking changed to indicate that I made a same-day/will call pickup request—which I did not do. My guess is that someone at my local UPS Customer Center made that decision for me.

A few minutes ago, UPS called and left a voicemail for me.

So, not only did they mishandle the package, then lose the package, then request pickup on my behalf, they’re only giving me a 30 minute window tonight to pick up the package.

What can brown do for me? None of the above, for starters.

This is why I never have cards shipped to my home. Normally, I have them sent to my P.O. Box, sacrificing an extra day so the postal workers can sort the shipment so I know my items have arrived safely. This time, I chose to have our box of Bunt sent to my home with efficiency in mind. Turns out I’ll be waiting far longer than a day, and am left empty handed and out some money.

Our box of Bunt, purchased from Blowoutcards, was marked as Out For Delivery all day yesterday. It never arrived. I stopped by the UPS Customer Center to see if the package was still there. Their records show that the box never arrived. In fact, not only do they have no idea why it was ever marked as Out For Delivery, they have no idea where the package is—even though tracking states that it made it at least as far as their hub. I was sent home and told that they would call me if they find the box—”IF” being the massively operative word.

I have never had a shipment of cards for a break mishandled or lost before, so this is brand new territory for me. I am temporarily postponing the Bunt portion of the break until I can figure out a solution. Worst case scenario, I’ll go to my LCS and pick up another box and pay for it out of pocket.

My deepest apologies, but it appears that our box of 2017 Bunt is still “Out for Delivery.”

The most amazing part of this (read: most stupidest, ridiculoustest part of this) is that I watched the UPS truck pull up to the curb and park outside of my house. It sat there for two minutes as I waited at the door for our box of Bunt, and then it drove off.

I’m rescheduling the break for Friday May 12 2017, same Crackin’ Wax time, same Crackin’ Wax channel.

Thank you all for your patience and understanding!
