US Postal "Service"

Guys,

I just need to rant about the Postal service for a while.... Hara (on this board in Louissiana) sent me some yellow and green star polyps. Hara did a nice job of packaging the polyps but the package came to me looking like the one in the film "Castaway" after it had spent four years on the island and been in a plane wreck...

I may be able to save the green star polyps, but the yellows looked like applesauce and water when they got to me...

Ohhh welllll......................

-Patrick

Well green polyps have come out now and most are acting very much alive! Tough little guys, took the worst the post office could give 'em. We will see how they do....

Sorry for the loss on the yellows,

I put my 2 cents in on the USPS thread... I still don't think they are that bad.

Well next time I will send a thermos first for sure. I think that would have held up a little better to the abuse...
