Default So I'm still waiting for my hookah

Ordered through Hookah-Shisha.com

Placed on the 27/5/08
Shipped on the 29/5/08
Arrived in customs on 2/6/08.....

It's now the 10/6/08

Dear customs, please let my package through, there's alot of smoking to be done!

If I don't get it by Thursday I'm gonna be one mad mofo... It's not like it's a box full of lead painted Chinese toys with a powdercoat of *sunshine and candy*!

Anyway, just wanted to vent at another mail drop by the mail man that doesn't have a "Come and collect your package" card.

I'm in Australia.

Arrived first thing last Monday morning, it's now the following Tuesday but it was a long weekend (Public holiday yesterday for the Queen's Birthday, despite it not being the Queens's Birthday) so that slows things down a bit.

As a fellow Aussie I've been through it many times, customs can take 1 - 14 days to clear an item, one even took 4 months to clear (obviously some mofo misplaced it).
Did you have more than 250g of tobacco in the order? If you did that could cause problems too depending on the inspector.

You folks do realize that UPS/USPS/Fedex/DHL/customs etc get bored and enjoy fucking with your packages, right?

Sigh, well here's an update.

On Wednesday the 11/6 I got a letter from customs saying they were holding my parcel (as I had expected) pending me paying the customs duty (Which was a depressingly huge mistake that I don't want to talk about - first international order). I did that immediately on Wed 11/6 at lunch. I call on Thursday afternoon after coming home from work with no parcel and no 'come to the post office and pick up your box of stuff' card. I proceed to get irritated.

I speak to customs and the blameless bloke was kind enough to inform me that my package (as of Thursday NIGHT) was waiting to be sent on FRIDAY MORNING (13/6) by normal mail...So I'll get my box on Monday afternoon. Monday the 16/6. My order arrived in Australia 2 whole weeks ago, gah.

I leave for my snow job on Wednesday, this weekend I'm having my going away bash, which I really wanted my new hookah for. Instead, I don't even get a chance to break it in with my mates before packing up and leaving for 3 months.

Not a good experience. Oh well - lessons learned by the dozen in this ordeal. Besides taking 2 days to ship my order out (which I'm not stoked about because I did pay for express shipping - but whatever, it's only because a day earlier might have maybe meant I'd have it for the weekend), Hookah-Shisha.com had my goods in the country 3 days after they dropped 'em in the mail, so I can't be displeased with that. I've now just gotta wait and enjoy my last weekend for a while without my new rig, which my mates were all dying to give a workout as well.

If my order gets here and is broken/incomplete, I think I'm seriously going to explode in a big ball of rage.

/rant off. It's Friday afternoon and beer o'clock is rapidly approaching..Time to unwind..where's my hookah? Ohhhhh...vicious cycle

Best of luck my friend. International orders do tend to be a little tricky.
