    United Postal - Tracking

    I just bought a bunch of stuff from florida. I was told on Oct 28 that it would take UPS (it's actually US Express Mail, it was my only option out of two - which were both US) a few hours to give me tracking information and not to email the company about tracking orders for at least 24 hours after the email. It's been like 33 hours now, and they haven't emailed me tracking info. Should I email and $$$$$ and complain (I wont really, i'd be more like "I need a tracking number!! It's making me lonely with out it!")? Or does it normally take this long for a tracking number? I know it takes a long time before the number activates, but I normally get my tracking numbers real quick - cause they are on the invoices, so the business does have the number... Hmm..

    This sounds somewhat suspicious. If I were you, I would definitely contact the selling party and demand your tracking number. It doesn't hurt to use a little hyperbole, so say you have contacts in high places, the Better Business Bureau and your state's attorney general if worse comes to worst. (The last portion wasn't 100% serious.)
