    I had a package sent out around the 8th of December, it still isn't here.. what is the likelyhood it was stolen/lost?

    Depends if you sent it priority/space available and how big it is.....I had one of those giant plastic foot lockers sent to me and it took about a month and a half.

    It always varied from me, I'd order stuff and it'd be there w/in a week. I had one package that took 3 months to get there.

    The most common form of shipment is "Parcel Post" - it is also incredibly slow. Even for priority and Dec 8th is still quite possible to be "out there" in the system. Parcel post you can count on it honestly being somewhere from 6-8 weeks...factor in Holiday Lag times and you're way out there. If it was shipped priority...I wouldn't really begin to worry till January 8th.

    Someone prolly stole it. What else was in the package, anything that you shouldnt be getting? They caught a few of my packages with "contraband" in them while I was in Iraq.

    I ordered my laptop from dell and it took 38 days because it was shipped registered mail with delivery confirmation. Chain of custody crap. Normally it takes 9 -12 days for me to get priority packages but it all depends on where you are. I'm close to BIAP so stuff is generally fairly quick for me.

    I guess i was just over-worried. teh lady friend sent ALL my games.. :doh: and only insured it for 500$.. so I was kinda upset.. but anyway, it showed up, apparently it had been here for a few days, but because i work nights, the day shifters didn't want to wake me.. even tho i had to sign for it.. :wtf:
    oh well, it's here..
