    Down to the point....So I have tracking info on an item I'm expecting (Tformer Toys), I just checked usps.com to check the tracking info and it stated "delivered" at such and such time. I haven't received anything today though? I've been home sick today... Is that normal for USPS to update to "delivered" when it physically has not been delivered? This is the first time this happens to me.. Any thoughts... I know usps can be screwy at times...

    Usually when this happens to me, it means they updated the system wrong, or left a notice, or if you've given them written authorization, they've delivered to a neighbor because you weren't home or left the package at the front or side door or nearby. Might wanna check around there to be safe.

    nope usually it will say out for delivery or something to that effect. it could be a mistake on their part.

    If it says delivered... I'd look around for it, otherwise i'd call and complain because your package is at someone else's house

    Yeah and I've been tracking it all day and it stated "out for delivery" and I just jumped on usps and what do you know "delivered"... I just stepped outside and there's nothing around. I checked my neighbor and didn't see anything there. I'm hoping that it's an online tracking error and keep my hopes up that it will be delivered tomorrow. I'm trying to keep my cool on but it's not working.. my boiling point keeps rising little by little.

    Call them first thing in the morning. Hopefully they can give you some type of answer.

    Atleast your package didn't end up in the wrong zip code. I had to hunt down my package and get them to forward it my post office. Sometimes I wonder who sorts the stuff.

    This happened to me once. I was home all day and the package was marked as "delivered" at x:xx time, no knock on the door, no notice, nothing. I started to worry, but it showed up the next day. I just attributed it to my mailman being lazy and not wanting to carry the package up to the door that day, but I could be wrong about that.

    Well you gave some relief there... We'll see tomorrow. There was also an instance where the delivery confirmation stated "out for delivery" and it stayed like that the whole day through the night and I received it the next day, so I won't panic just yet...

    Did it snow in VA, too? If your sidewalk/driveway wasn't shoveled, that could be why they didn't leave it today.

    I had a package marked as out for delivery that was never attempted to be delivered and was delivered the next day.

    I also had one time where it said something like "attempted delivery and address has changed, attempting to correct address". Made no sense because my address hadn't changed and the address on the package was correct. Got it eventually.

    or your mail man could be taking plays from the lazy fuck...also known as my lazy ass mail man aka lazy bastard...anyway...i have had mine scan shit as delivered near the end of the day...and then drop it in the mail box first thing next morning...

    or he will deliver all the mail first...and then late in the afternoon go back and drop all the boxes off by themselves...but after scanning them delivered as of 5 hours earlier....
