Right now, I am in a very stressful position and it's all on account of an increasingly late delivery from PaddingPlus.
I've recently placed an order for three new NUK 5 pacifiers, as I felt the one I had was starting to get worn out. What made it better was that my dad (whom I share a house with) would be out for the week so I could get the package without worry of being discovered.
...I placed that order a week ago, and it has yet to get to me. To clarify this issue, PaddingPlus operates in Melbourbe and I live in Adelaide which are the two closest cities to each other in Australia (it takes like 8-10 hours tops to travel between them) Furthermore, I've purchased from PaddingPlus before and I've received my packages at a decent time.
But as the order becomes increasingly lage, the closer the days roll by until my dad gets back and the more precariously close I get to having my lifestyle be exposed to him. Now, thankfully he works most of the day and I'm currently at home most of the time, so getting the order when he's not home is easy enough. However, I'm expected to travel upstate in a few day's time, which will mean that dad will be the only one at the house. Plus, I've gone out of my way to create a cover story that I bought myself a game, so if the pacifiers get here while I'm away and dad picks them up, he sure as heck will have some questions for me.
This is becoming increasingly troublesome for me as I paid good money to get those pacifiers, but the last thing I want is to expose myself to my dad. I've contacted PaddingPlus through email to ask whether or not my order has been sent, but they've yet to get back to me. The only other course of action I can take is to contact them through their pgone number to hopefully get some better answers.
I'm really feeling like I'm dancing on the razor's edge right now...
