More on Canada Post Stamps Order

When we last talked, I was wondering when my Canada Post online order for stamps might arrive.

Well, yesterday, a full week after I placed the order, I received my first update from Canada Post, in an email from someone named OTC Batch ID CPC Control M.

I fed the “tracking ID” provided and got a more detailed update:

So my order–for stamps, remember, simply for stamps–is set to be delivered 13 days after I placed the order.

And, apparently, a signature will be required to accept the delivery. But I won’t be home. So who knows what will happen.

It boggles the mind that an agency selling its own products, with its own delivery network, cannot turn around an order–for stamps!–in less than 13 days.

Stay tuned.
