How would you handle this?

So I payed for a ram in the wanted section in early October and after what the guy considered a threatening email after multiple attempts to reach him, he finally responded with a text and a shipping number on the 13th of November.

Don't understand how you figure.

To the OP, maybe call the post office. I've had a guy give me a tracking number, but no shipment. Found out you can get one without shipping.

That's what I am starting to think has happened.

It's becoming frustrating, it's a hundred dollars, which isn't the end of the world but damn man. Send me the money or the part.

Going by the history I'd say it is still sitting in Texas, nothing has ever moved that fast thru a postal facility.

Dammit dude I already told you in PM that $100 for a ram made me think you were dtf. I didn't know you were talking car parts and shit. I didn't get rammed, so I spent your money on drugs. Don't even think about getting these motherfuckers to shit in my sunroof because I get off on that too.

Would be pointless to call or email him at this point

He is in New Mexico and it has been shipped to Texas so far.

It's honestly out of his hands at this point.

If Pukemaggots hadn't chimed in that's where it was headed.

USPS always sends shit to the closest distribution center. Doesn't matter if the location is the opposite direction from where the package needs to go. From there it will get tossed around, lost, stolen, or if you are lucky, sent to a distribution center somewhere near the final destination. It goes through the same routine and (if lucky) is sent to your local hub. Rinse and repeat until it finally gets to your local PO and maybe even delivered to your address.

Let's say you live at the end of my road, and I'm a lazy ass and want to mail you a package. It's going to main post in texarkana, then to Shreveport LA, from there to Baton Rouge LA, back to Shreveport, back to Texarkana, on to your house.

Basically from Scotland to Greece, back to Scotland.

Because government.
