It's been more than 7 business days now and I'm getting antsy. I'm starting to feel like I might've well have waited for the North American release date and fended for myself.
I've never ordered anything from an International seller before, and don't know what to expect. How long should I expect it to take to get to me from Florida to Nova Scotia? Is there something about Tamagotchis that Americans feel the need to detonate at the border in case of terrorist attack? Do Tamagotchi Connexion/Connection even really exist? I've yet to see any actual physical evidence these things exist If any of you could assure me that I didn't imagine Tamagotchi Conne*ion, or tell me something encouraging about what happens to mail at the border, that'd be cool.

I don't know, man. I'm pretty convinced that you guys all made it up just to get me all excited, then sad because they don't really exist. Quite the photoshop job you guys are doing!
Don't worry. Maybe they are a bit held up or something. I don't think that tamagotchis pose much of a terrorist threat (unless you modify the IR connection thing to become a laser! lol!) And yes, Tamagotchi Connections/Connexions do exist. Ask anybody on this forum, most of them will give you all the evidence you need! I myself own two!
If I worked at the border, I'd detonate Tamagotchis and site "potential terrorist activities could be committed with this device" just to be contrary- and for the power trip.

Yeah, I still think they're made up.

Also, I ordered one from her last Friday, but haven't heard from her yet! How long did it take her to reply to e-mails and such? Sometimes my email doesn't work, so I'm blaming it on that.

A MONTH? You have ruined my day. Seriously. I won't be at this house anymore a month from when she shipped it to me. (not your fault, not angry at you personally or anything, just totally bummed now because someone who moves into my house after me is getting my Tamagotchi)
Today, it'll be 12 business days since she shipped it to me. If it doesn't come tomorrow, I might give her bad feedback (neutral if I'm only quasi-pi**ed) for grossly misquoting me shipping time. A power seller should know how long it takes to ship something to a only somewhat foreign location (I'm in Canada, not Cambodia!). I shouldn't be this annoyed and stressed about when I'm recieving my Tamagotchi. I ordered something from HONG KONG AFTER I ordered my Tamagotchi from her, and that item has already arrived. Yes, I did pay paypal, so I did expect it to be a littler quicker (as opposed to my sending a money order to her, but I sent that XPRESS post- that's a complaint for a different thread, as I'm also annoyed with Canada Post) but this is getting really ridiculous.

Oh, I *know* it's US customs. It's ALWAYS the USA. (I work for tourism, and get ridiculous questions and requests from Americans, so sometimes-especially when I'm frustrated- I talk smack about Americans. I don't realistically blame Americans for all my woes, but it makes me feel better) Ferchirssake, not everybody wants to bomb the US. And this thing's leaving the states to effin' CANADA. NOVA SCOTIA, Canada. There's nothing to blow up in Nova Scotia.
Hong Kong and it's there already? Must have something to do with the US customs then. I'm so sorry! How long did she tell you it would take to get there? Does Canada do the forwarding address thing for when someone moves? I hope your tamagotchi gets there soon!
She told me 7-10 business days. My patience is wearing thin. I'm not really mad mad at her, I'm frustrated she didn't know how long it would take to reach its destination in Canada, but really. Quoting me 7-10 business days was sort of mean. I'm not sure what to do about address forwarding, I don't know if I'll have to pay for the shipping for myself to have it sent to where I actually am.

you should leave neg. feedback it shouldn't take that long to get it. I got mine in 8 business days. She doesn't ship them from florida cause I emailed her and asked how long it would take to get mine since I lived in Florida too and she replied back saying they were shipped from California.
Today, it'll be 12 business days since she shipped it to me. If it doesn't come tomorrow, I might give her bad feedback (neutral if I'm only quasi-pi**ed) for grossly misquoting me shipping time.

I would lose my job if I misquoted somebody something. She gets away with it because it's e-bay. A power seller shouldn't grossly mis-quote a shipping time and get away with it. As much stuff as she has on e-bay, it's fair to guess she makes plenty of profit off of what she does. You could, at least, call it her job. She should be reprimanded at her job for her poor customer service, it's as simple as that.
