The Slow Contest

WaltBasilWaltBasil Posts: 1,757 ✭✭✭
Nothing worse than getting that bargain you've been waiting for, and wanting to keep that bargain down to a bargain, you opt for the snail shipping. You're in no rush to get them. You've already got plenty. This box is just going to sit under the opened box for a while.

snail

The contest then becomes, at a snail's pace, when will the box arrive in my mailbox? Can you narrow it down to date and time? Closest without going over wins an evening on me (see my last contest "Bombed Myself" for a clue as to what this means), including something from the box.

I'll start you off with a hint... Ordered on Saturday. Shipped surepost (UPS handed off to Post Office for final delivery). Offical answer will be from USPS time stamp on delivery confirmation. Usually, surepost takes 8 calendar days to arrive in my box, out of which 5 were business days. Ready set go! One entry per person.

I hate surepost.

    So, the object was to guess the date and time of delivery without going over. Mr. Stogie wins. This is what arrived:

    And this is the delivery confirmation screen:

    Seeing that I already have your address, no further action is required on your part. Thanks for playing, everyone!
