Several months ago I went looking for a good tobacco pouch and Calum, in good faith, pointed me to what I thought would fill the bill nicely. I showed the webpage to my wife, saying that this would make a nice Christmas present. After I opened the gift on x-mas morning she told me "the rest of the story."
She'd contacted the guy and paid, and received a tracking number from the USPS. After it hadn't arrived within a week or so, she followed the number and was told that shipping had been paid, but it was never delivered to the post office. She contacted the guy again, and was forced to go to Etsy to get anything. After 24 days of back-and-forth with Etsy, she got a nasty-gram saying that it had been shipped three weeks earlier, but again, when you followed the tracking number, it clearly showed that the item wasn't sent until about the time he sent the snippy e-mail.
