I have no control over your shipping

A client orders an item on December 14th and it ships on the 15th of December. The client is located on the east coast and we are shipping from the west coast. We upgraded their shipping from standard shipping to priority shipping for free. The client calls me on the 23rd of December and says they didn’t receive it yet so I check the tracking on it. The tracking says it is on route from the sorting facility which is located on the west coast. There have been no updates to the tracking since the 15th. It would be nice if USPS would update a little more often. This would help them to have fewer phone calls and complaints. I called USPS and went through their phone system. I tried to get a live person and hit 00, but the recorded message basically said they don’t take customer service calls this time of year. 1-800-ASK-USPS is their number if anyone needs it. The client is upset because they needed it by Christmas and they want to know what I will do about it. I was extremely nice about it, but I don’t have any control over the shipping process. Sometimes shipping takes longer than expected this time of year. This happens almost every year. I requested that the customer be patient and I haven’t hard from him again. So we will see what happens. I will check tracking over the next few days and hopefully he will receive it. Has this ever happened to you?

Client Expectations

Client brings in a computer to be worked on 2 weeks ago. We call him within 2 days and let him know what the problem is and he says he will let us know. We leave messages with the client over the next 2 weeks to find out if the client would like us to do the work. After 2 weeks the client calls us back and says do the work. The client then calls us three times per day every day to see if their computer is finished. Why is it so important now and it wasn’t over the last 2 weeks?
