I recently had a book go lost in the mail - it was from OH.  I really don't think the chick actually sent it since she never answered any of the PMs that I sent her because I wanted to order more from her shelf.  **shrugs**  oh well.


But now I have a SECOND book from OH coming to me that is going to be marked as lost in the mail in the next couple of days if it doesn't show up.   WTH?

Yes, Ohio is a black hole.  I will testify to that because I live there.  We did have some really bad weather a week ago that caused a lot of problems, so maybe just give it a few extra days :)

And here I was thinking it was Michigan that had the black hole - I have 2 different multiple book orders going lost in the next few days coming from different places but both through Allen Park, MI to get to me.  What are the odds?

Hmmmm.  You might have something there, Melani.  One of my recent requests went lost in the mail - and it was coming from OH, too.  And it was actually scanned in OH,  so I know it at least got to the sender's post office.

I'm in Ohio too. I ordered a book that came from Mansfield, Ohio, about 3 hours away. I PMed the sender and he sent me the tracking number, I checked and it was in PA. I finally got the book 2 days before it was to "go lost." I guess Ohio's mail routing system is just as messed up as its children services are...but that is a differnt subject.
