You've got to be kidding me

Received a box from my invites designer today. It contains ... the envelopes. And only the envelopes. No invitations, no RSVP cards, no inserts.

AND the return address on the invitation envelopes has a mistake (she included my mom's name when I asked for just the address -- nothing major, I'm just annoyed she didn't listen to me).

Now, when the designer sent me the tracking number, she said the invites were being shipped in 2 boxes. But I don't have a tracking # for this mythical second box. Is it wrong of me to be suspicious that there is no second box, and to wonder if this was her way of buying more time to finish the printing?

Ugh. I am so sick of dealing with this woman and of worrying about these stupid invitations. I just want them in hand so I know it's over!!

OH NO!! I think you and I are in the same boat with our invites. What a pain in the arse. I would wait to see if it shows up on Monday. If it doesn't, then I would call her just to give her a "heads up" with a dripping sweet voice expressing your concern. I keep having to follow up myself and am totally over it... but I'm killing her with kindness until I get them in my hands!!

This is insane, and super unprofessional. I just hope you get the damn things soon so that you can end your relationship with this woman!

In fairness, if this were any other vendor, I would assume the missing box had been separated from its buddy during shipping and would arrive in a day or two -- so I guess I shouldn't assume it's her being dishonest. (Although not having a second tracking number makes me *really* nervous.)

She has until Wednesday. If I don't have the invites or a tracking number by then, this is getting reported to Etsy as a non-delivery. Maybe that will light a fire under her butt!

Ugh! That sucks! I hope they show up today with no mistakes on them!
And good luck dealing with her if they don't!

Monday mail has come and gone ... no invites. She says they were a "multi-package shipment" and that she'll check with her post office. I am not filled with confidence.
