Sadly, the Case of the Misplaced Parcel has petered out without a satisfying conclusion one way or the other. After UPS I-Parcel’s final bunch of lies and baloney, and my less than diplomatic response, they have chosen silence.
Nevertheless, my publisher was kind enough to ship me a new box of author copies, through USPS this time, and these arrived at speed and in good order.
And in other good news, I have nagged I-Parcel Customer Service so thoroughly that at some point in the recent past I was unable to tag them on Facebook any longer. Apparently, they had chosen blocking me over responding to my queries.
It may be Pyrrhic, but I call that a victory!
