    I usually give 24hrs. never know what is going on, for their end. There have been boxes that said they landed, but never arrived. address typos, etc. (ok, that was me)

    I'm not sure, but if you saved the DC or tracking number you can usually check those to see. Also, most bombs are posted in the trades, bombs, passes page once received as far as I can tell.

    Since I know what bomb this is, we would have heard about it.

    Yes. Definitely. Probably through pm first though. In fact I just got a pm from someone wondering if a package landed (it had not). In my case I have to drive about a mile to get my mail at a centralized box and it often gets delivered late afternoon or evening so if they haven't delivered by the time I drive passed on my way home from work then it waits until the next day unless I know it is there. And of course we are all busy so as boots mentioned give them a day.

    Well, for the record Flowbee, I have NOT gotten anything from you....yet! ;) Hope that helps. Seriously, though as others have said, give it some time. Not everyone is quick to post pics or even words. Obviously you know your target and if you see them on and active and still no mention AND the tracking number shows it landed...then perhaps a gentle inquiry might be necessary...but sadly, it shouldnt be needed unless you specifically told him NOT to post. However, since you are publicly asking, it is apparent that it wasnt.

    Nothing wrong with PM'ing a person to see if they got it.
    If folks are like me, I don't often get to the mailbox for a few days, mostly because by the time I get home, I'm too lazy to go down to the mailbox and check it or I forget to check it.

    Okay, okay! I don't know if I can get up and down my stairs a third time today (three flights of stairs + snow/sleet + crutches = not a good idea) but I'll hobble down there bright and early tomorrow morning. There's a 90% chance its in the office and not the box, and they closed 2 hours ago.

    You've got me all excited now! I swear, the one day we didn't check mail X(

    Did you really just hit me?

    This dude's been on the forum less than 2 weeks and hits me?
    You realize I will have to make an example of him?
    And Boot boy, this will be on you and Eric.

    Chris,
    I like your style! 2 weeks on the forum and you are fitting in well with those that like to throw sticks and stones and the odd hand-grenade at each other. Now can you maybe do something about that big pic in your footnote? ;)

    Aight, USPS lied to somebody, we only had my ccom package and one from SleevePlz come in; I'll keep my eyes peeled for the others tomorrow and Monday. No idea whats got them taking so long if they said it was good online. *shrug*
