So, my Rift is stuck in shipping...

... at my next-door neighbour's house.

They signed for it, and then like they often do, they DISAPPEARED. Usually they're gone for days at a time.

Who the fxxk signs for a package knowing they're about to bugger off for the better part of a week?! Honestly.

There is no greater torture. My Rift is literally within thirty feet of me as I sit here typing.

Not intentional, in the UK this is just what couriers do if you're not in when they're there. I wasn't able to edit the shipping info to instruct the driver NOT to leave it with those people, alas, so here we are!

I'd break in and claim the package was live fish for your (hastily built) Koi Carp pond in the back garden and were worried that they would die if you didn't get to them quick enough!

Or call the police and tell them you think you smell a dead body next door. You'll have them there in minutes lol

Some great suggestions in here!! I'm happy to report that (in a very unusual turn of events) said neighbour returned, and I was able to snatch my Rift. Sanity restored!

@Clart: the "middle", if you will! Order number was xx28xx, time was vaguely 14-and-a-bit minutes if I recall.
