two instances in a day... sigh*

Hi! New member posting. I actually did a mental *happy dance* when I came upon this community, cuz I was JUST grouching over not one, but two instances of bad service this very day and needing to rant about it.

Today, I went out to get take out at this restauraunt I adore. My plan was to order the food, then spend the usual 10-20 minutes waiting time by going across the street to get a cup of coffee and a sandwich from Dunkin Donuts.

Small Wtf/Almost Bad Service That Ended Up Working Out.

About two weeks ago I ordered a metal iPod Touch case and an adhesive o-ring from an online website. Honestly, I chose the free shipping because I'd already shelled out 30 bucks for the case. In hindsight, that was my mistake. I figure because it's free shipping, it's probably going to take the estimated 9 days or more to get to me, so I've accepted the fact I'll have to wait a good while for my package. About a week later I get online to see if my package is trackable. It is! I click the "Track Your Package" link and apparently my package has been delivered to me already. Huh. Really? It seems so, because there's a delivery confirmation entry after the "delivered to -town- post office at -time-" entry. I've been working a lot lately, so I haven't been able to get the mail everyday. The responsibility fell to my father, so I go and ask him if I'd gotten anything in the mail. He says no. I decide to wait until the next day to see if they just prematurely put in the delivery confirmation. I get home from work and still no package. Due to some "Hey, for the fifth time this week we changed your work schedule!" work suck, it takes me another day after this to get to the time to go to the post office during their hours of operation. When I get to the teller and begin to explain my situation, her nice, sunny demeanor goes from "Hi, how can I help you today?! :D :D" to "Why are you darkening my window with your ISSUES? >=[". The conversation was as follows.
