Yet, if you asked them to "hold" mail for delivery in 2 weeks, they could
not provide that service.

That reminds me of the joke where the guy went to the airline counter and
asked for a ticket to Washington DC but wanted his luggage to be delivered
to Atlanta. When the attendant reported they could not provide that
service, he said, "Well you did last week."

I know this is not funny for Paul. I hope you are right Elhardt and that
these "missing" packages will fall out of the system to their earthly home
"better late than never."
