This is the abbreviated account of the parcel:
I placed an online order for a smallish product.
The day the parcel was scheduled to arrive, it did not.
I decided the seller was fraudulent. I decided the postal service was inept. I decided I should cool down and await further information.
10 days after the parcel was scheduled to arrive, it had not.
I decided to take the matter up with the seller, then the postal service. I decided to be very polite about the matter. I obtained further information, information which indicated nobody on the planet had any idea where the parcel had gone off to.
Thus, I determined it prudent to affirm my initial assumption. I was right. The seller was fraudulent. The postal service was inept. I wasn’t exactly thrilled to be right but right I was.
The next day the parcel arrived and this shot my confidence in myself to bits.
