I will never ship priority again!!....

I'm so PO'd right now . I bought 4 females from darkmoon and they were shipped priority on monday and they are still not here . It's only like 10 hours from where they were shipped to me. I've never had priority take so long. The tracking says they sat in MO for all most 24 hours before they were shipped out. Tracking says they are in my city and out on delivery at 9am this morning but nothing yet. I called the PO to see if maybe they had been taken back there but the woman said just because tracking says out on delivery that doesn't mean they are on a truck. There is no mail in my mailbox so maybe it hasn't run yet. The PO closes at 4:30 so time is ticking. It's supposed to get cold tonight and their heat pack was only 72 hrs. I hope they're ok being young and all. I'm going to spend the extra money now and always ship express. This is too stressful.

I expect to pass through this world but once; any good thing therefore that I can do, or any kindness that I can show to any fellow creature, let me do it now; let me not defer or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again.

Alot of people do ship express during winter months because it can be cold. But i'm sure your betta babies will be fine.
People have had their bettas lost in the mail for over a week and still have them show up alive. I hope your package comes soon. my first pair was shipped to me from hawaii and it felt like forever for them to get to me.

it''s supposed to be cold enough to snow here tonight/tomorrow and i'm SO happy i haven't rushed into getting the girlys I plan to get from darkmoon as i was going to have them sent priority aswell.

My wishlist:
-duckweed- -black and white marble, anything but VT-
-javamoss- -koi marble, anything but VT)
-hatchable brine shrimp eggs-
-indian almond leaves-
-Melano Halfmoon male-
-steel blue or royal blue CT or HM female-

They're here!

Lol! right after I hit submit the mailman knocked on my door. They all look fine. The heat pack is still warm. They are so cute and tiny. Pics to be posted in the photo section.
