Ok, thought I mailed something out to a member on THURS (3 OCT) as a RAOK. But today I was reviewing my in and out PMs and it seems she didn't even ask for it til the 5th.......... is there any way for the date to get changed on a PM?

Both her request and My response are dated 5 OCT.  I can remember packaging the item and addressing it......but really feel I did it on the 3rd and can't find the package anywhere so I must have mailed it already!    I know I didn't go to PO on SAT as I got up and did hours of laundry and didn't leave the house til 2pm (PO closes at noon).

Just one question...are you hearing strange music or Rod Serling's voice?

I don't know, but it sure sounds like time travel on your end.  So, on your next time traveling adventure, could you find out what the upcoming winning Powerball numbers will be? I'll split it with you. devil

Maybe there's a black hole of some sort in Florida? My dad, who lives in Jacksonville, swears he sent me a letter on Sept. 30, but everything was dated Oct. 3 when it arrived.  Cue that spooky music ...

Thats just weird. Normally when wacky stuff happens I figure the system burped or something. I'v had the system eat my outgoing PMs; put books on my reminder list and wish list that I have never seen, and send messages that I was sending to other members to ME instead of the reciepient. I guess glitching on dates isn't out of the realm of possibility, but I have never experienced it

Everytime I've had something weird happen and sent in Feedback, they've looked and tracked my activity and found I just didn't remember what I was doing :) You can send in Feedback to ask, or just keep wondering...

DOO DOO DOO DOO DOO DOO DOO DOO (That's the Twilight Zone music, in case you couldn't hear it.)
