Hahaha nice.

But I wouldn't consider 50 gallons of the cheapest styrofoam peanuts in the world "beating him up". :poke1:

Woohoo!! One of those is mine as well. Just when I thought I had nothing to look forward to this weekend, I get a nice surprise like this!

I dunno. I'm still waiting to see #6, lol. I'm passing through LA again over Thanksgiving weekend and I'm crossing my fingers that I'll get to check it out. :)

Australia tends to sit on them for about 2 weeks.
But it get's worse.
ARGENTINA.
I mailed a package priority mail and 6 weeks later it had still not arrived.
So I mailed replacement pieces by Express mail.
They have been sitting in Argentina Customs since October 12th.
One customer there said they have to go to the customs office and spend the day to get their packages, or wait a month or two until they decide to process them through customs.

7 days is not too bad, comparatively. It used to be better - or at least there used to be about 50/50 chance they'd just let an item through without delay. Now it seems I'm lucky if it's stuck in customs for only a week. I've had 3 items now that have each taken about 2-3 weeks.

US customs can be just as bad. I just had some buffalo horn stuck there for 3 weeks.
