Default Anyone heard from Bob Dillon?

I'm not trying to call him out, but I haven't gotten my manifold. I bought it on 3/17 (Friday), and he said it was going out Monday 3/20. He was going on a cruise (I'm assuming that'* where he still is), so I knew he'd be out of pocket. It was to be shipped USPS Priority Mail, which is supposed to be 2-3 days. As of yesterday, it didn't make it, and he hasn't returned a PM since 3/23. He was having a buddy take it to the PO that Monday.

Again, I'm not calling him out, nor am I upset. I just wanted an update, to make sure it went out. I'm an upper intake from a running engine, or so I hope!

UPS sucks, they may be giving the trip for the package the scenic route. Id wait a couple more days. UPS for me never ships on time.

From what I've seen here, Bob is a stand-up guy, so I'm sure he will take care of it. Sorry you've had to wait. I know what it can be like, waiting for the "one piece" you need to get things going.

Edit: Did you say UPS Priority Mail, 'cause you probably meant USPS as in US Postal Service right? UPS doesn't do a "priority mail" that I know of.

Bob ships via USPS priority mail.

He is on a cruise and I know for a fact if he were in town, you would have that manifold.

Not sure when he'* back, but internet is very limited on the ship. Send him a PM if you haven't already. He should be able to get it soon and hopefully take care of the situation.

Yeah, I know he'* good for it, no doubt. Yes, I meant USPS Priority Mail, and I've edited my original. I just wonder if the buddy did, in fact, get it to the post office on Monday. Is priority mail trackable? I don't think I've ever needed to, as I've only used it a few times.

Not trackable in that sense, but delivery confirmation is possible.

Priority Mail can be trackable, if you request Tracking Service. Not sure if it'* an extra charge or not, though
