Aloha PBS users,

I just checked on a book I sent out and its saying it was miss sent.  Do those generally get forwarded on or what? I did the print from home postage so I didn't hand write or anything.  Any thoughts?

From what I've heard, they just mark it as missent and then send it to the correct post office. I had this happen to me a couple weeks ago. I'm in New York, but the delivery confirmation said the book I'd ordered was out for delivery in Iowa! It got fixed later that day and made its way to me a day or two later. I wouldn't worry; it should get back on track.

Yes, it'll get to you eventually. I just got one today that had two missent scans in different ZIP codes. Somebody, somewhere along the route, slapped a round sticker that says "Priority 1st" onto it, and that may be what finally got it going in the right direction.

I agree Amber, 'mis-sent' is usually a USPS designation not a sender mistake.
