a package that was seemingly lost by USPS, and previously pissing me off, was discovered!
although the address was clearly written on the shipment, it was delivered to the street over, with the name street # as my work address. i asked the post lady when she brought the mail today if she knew anything about it, and she said would check into the other places with the same street # for me while she was on her route. she found it, and swung by at the end of the day to drop it off.
all this from usps, i am amazed.
