The continuing saga of Canada Post and Amazon

Well, my note on the door was completely wasted ... I came home tonight to find my replacement parcel from Amazon sitting in the building entry where the mail boxes live, ON THE LEDGE WHERE TENANTS SPECIFICALLY PLACE MAIL ADDRESSED TO PEOPLE NO LONGER IN RESIDENCE SO THAT THE POST OFFICE CAN COLLECT AND REDIRECT/RETURN IT!!!!! (which means that the delivery twit never got as far as my door) I have, needless to say, just finished reporting THIS infraction to Canada Post as well (and that's likely what happened to the first one, since the day it was "delivered" was the ONE day that week that I didn't go down there to check my mail ... kinda glad to know it, since I hated the idea that one of my neighbours, or their visitors, was a thief).

Ah well, the important thing is that I have my loot: Keith Hartman's Congregations in Conflict, which I wanted to own because the research that went into it provided the background for Hartman's Gumshoe books, and: Zaftig, which I discovered accidently while Googlechecking my spelling for a post announcing an addition to my LJ Gallery ... couldn't recall at the time if the word was "zaftig" or "zoftig" (and learned that both spellings are correct, as well as finding the review of this book ... education IS fun!)
