Yes, I can cut a seller tons of slack given our situation. I have an order from a craftsman in Poland. When the items were ready to ship he contacted me to inform that express post was not available and my choice was via boat (I might receive it in this lifetime) or courier (at twice the cost). I informed him to hold it to see if what develops. In two weeks the express post came back and the goods arrived in Canada within days and are awaiting customs clearance. I very much appreciated the opportunity of choice. I sent an email expressing my disappointment to the Australian supplier and received in reply an expletive laden response. I suppose he is under duress from others as well but let me say the expletive laden response was not well received at this end.
