Postman always rings twice (or three times?)

Tag, you're it!


After playing a game of cat-and-mouse with the postman for the past 3 days, I finally received my Buffalo Nickel. As many of you know, Teletrade purchases are delivered with signature confirmation. While I really appreciate this peace of mind, sometimes it is difficult to get your items.


Where I live, most people work from 730 to 530, or some similar work schedule. The post office is opened from 830 to 530. So the game goes: (1) the postman drops off a slip saying my package has arrived but requires a signature; (2) I rush to the post-office and hope to make it there before 530 on that day, but usually fail; (3) I return that little devilish card *signed* to my mailbox; (4) Day 2: the mailman/woman picks up the card from my mail box; (5) Day 3: finally receive your package.


This isn't particularly painful, but it's just a little song-and-dance you get used to. BUT, the fruits of your labor are what really count.


Below is my most recent "pas-de-deux" postal acquisition:
