Ok, am I officially allowed to be sad....?

...that I never received a gift from my Secret Santa?

Did anyone else who participated not get a gift from your SS?

I never received a tracking number that was promised to me from my SS. H and I both work from home and have good relationships with our regular FedEx, UPS & mail carriers. I've talked to them & no packages were ever attempted to be delivered that we didn't receive.

I know it's not the end of the world. But I was so excited to do it, and really, if you sign up, shouldn't you honor your commitment and see it through to completion? Anyway, I just had to complain a little bit so that I can let it go now.

  • You can be sad. That is really lame. I hope you SS sees this and gets with the program.

    Yeah, I know who had me. She left me a message on the SS sticky in early January telling me that she got delayed but would be sending it the next day & would send me the tracking number. Then nothing. I posted to her both here and on elfster.

    She claimed that the first package she sent (in Dec) got sent back to her. But that was really strange (and unlikely) because H and I both work from home, and our various shipping people know that -- I talk to them when they come to the door all of the time -- so there's no way we missed it. I find it unlikely that 2 packages didn't get here when we get packages literally every 2-3 days for our respective jobs or for personal stuff.

    I feel like I've done everything that I can and won't do anymore because it feels kind of pushy. And like I said, it's not the end of the world. I was just excited about it, you know?

    I was HER SS and I sent her good stuff.  I know it's not tit for tat, but if she doesn't send you her gift, I wish I could take hers back and send you something!!

  • I'm so sorry this happened. I would be really sad over this. I do believe that the first package got sent back. I had that happen with a Christmas card I sent to a family member. It was really strange and I had to send it again in a new envelope. As for the rest of it I don't know. Maybe it's personal stuff that's delaying the send off. Hopefully she responds to you and lets you know what is going on.

  • I never got one either and no one ever contacted me. Hbstchel checked in nearly a month ago and told me the ss was checking on it. Still no word and I never found out who it was.

    She never said anything back to me after telling me she was checking on it. I feel like its been long enough that it doesn't need to be a secret. Your SS was meganiobe.
