    I bought something off of Amazon LAST TUESDAY, THE 25TH OF APRIL. It's May 3rd and It's still "in transit to carrier." Is this an amazon thing, or a United States Postal Service thing (that's the carrier), or what the issue may be?

    Welp, idk. Maybe they CLAIM to be in Georgia? Happened to me before. I hope not, cause that would be $150 down the toilet :blink:

    Sometimes, the seller is in the USA, but warehouse is in china. It's possible you got catfished.

    I think my question has been answered here. the warehouse is probably in a foreign country, or that USPS is really just that slow. or both.
