DUDE. That REALLY sucks. I just had some guitar cables shipped to me from USPS. They said they were delivered when, in fact, they weren't. Magically, they showed up 10 hours later in my front door. I've had the same thing happen several times in the past, and sometimes it's a day or two later when packages "magically appear." I can't tell you how many times I've called USPS and dealt with them only to have zero follow-ups on claims. It's downright irritating. I will pay extra to ship important things via FedEx or UPS these days, because it's just not worth dealing with horrible customer service from a government-run mail agency. That said, I wish you best of luck in getting your new hookah, and I hope it rocks.
