Stupid US Customs...ugh
« on: May 16, 2009, 11:35:56 PM »

Well...guess nothing goes as planned ( as always)..

Apparently a box of 12 PVCs my friend and I pigged out on from HLJ is in US customs. Cool, didn't think I would get so lucky to have the possibility of missing my package the day I head back to Cali for Fanime....gg.

On a side note, least it's in the US...~_~;

Any particular reason why Customs may be holding it?

I think cause the box is really big and they were a little suspicious. That or they do it at random for the hell of it... which I assume is the case.

EDIT: Oh... sweet, I might have to pay something extra when it gets delivered. Adds more fun to it...

It could be worse. When I bought one of the crystal skulls from the Stargate show, they marked it "human skull" ( it's clear plastic). They really wanted to open that box ! And while they called and left a message for me asking to open it, They opened it before I could tell them yes.

Ugh, good luck, at least it wasn't a handful of doujins that had to go through customs like uhhh someone...
But yeah hopefully they don't destroy the boxes and/or figures, one of my friends had their boxes all messed up from customs.

Yeah they took good care of it.

Funny story is that I was headed for my friend's car park a block away after leaving my house this morning when I saw a USPS van pull into my street. Gut instinct told me my package was in there so I ran back, chasing after it. Surely, it was my stuff. So we got this box big enough to fit two Kyon's sister in and pigged out on all 12 PVCs. Well, least I made it back to Cali ( literally like half an hour ago, lol) without worrying about it not being there when I went back.
