Meanwhile your whole life is sold to this company for just barely enough to scrape by on .... it's disgusting and wrong.

    There is a CEO in Japan that owns an airline, that sold his house, and lives in an appt., and gave himself a pay cut, a drastic one, because he wanted all of his workers to have comfy lives. He didnt think it was fair to live so well while those who made him the money struggle. He takes the bus to work .... and to me it was like HELL YA, that dude is amazing. That is one decent human being right there.

    another one was a 70 year old Japanese man saying that they should send him and other seniors in to clean up the radiation from the nuclear plants that failed, because the effects of the radiation give you cancer and kill you in 30+ years ... and hes like "I dont have that long anyways" .... like OMG Japan ... you guys rock.

    Then you type Japanese Anime into google and its like WHAT .... THE ... CRAP ... IS WRONG WITH YOU GUYS. lol
    That's it, I'm moving to Japan...

    I work in retail and have been with the same company for almost 11 years. I've always worked full time hours (32-40 per week) even though I have part-time status. Because of this "recession" that hit a few years back, I'm now only scheduled for 10-15 hours per week. Thankfully my husband has a decent job, or we'd be homeless.

    On another note (the whole reason I replied to this thread to begin with) I spoke to a postal worker today and got an update regarding the strike. Apparently negotiations are still in the works, and it doesn't look like the post office will be shut down just yet. Mail is still arriving but it may be a few days late. Just in case anyone here may have been concerned

    See, this is exactly what I am talking about. You get 32-40 hours a week and that's PART TIME. Why? So they dont have to give you benefits, which saves them money. So every week, they bend every hard working employee over and have their way with them. If you complain, or have a bad attitude because you're being reamed, FIRED. It's rage educing and disgusting.... all we want to do it take care of our families, have a nice life, not have to struggle. I dont expect us all to be millionaires, but is expecting a life were you DONT struggle when you work 35-40 hours a week so much? ...

    The thing is, is that I myself am not in this situation, Im not struggling at all, but it still makes me sick .... like I react the same emotionally to this as I would a snuff film .... it's just so wrong.

    Also, on a happier note, thanks for the update! .... my mail lady told me the same thing ... and because I answer the door frequently wearing only my underwear, my mail lady LOVES to stand and chat lol!

    Have any other Canadians received their June renewal emails yet? No emails have come or charges gone through for me yet.

    Less than 6 hours to go!

    At least now that Canada Post has locked out their employees, there should be some type of resolution (probably back to work legislation) to all this mess well before today's sale items even reach the border and Canada Post takes over delivery from USPS.
    I feel a lot more comfortable about placing my order today, even with the lockout, than I did when there was more uncertainty...... as I can't imagine the lockout still being in effect when the figures are set to arrive in my mailbox.

    Glad to see you're more optimistic than I am. I'm tempted to splurge on the UPS delivery today, but I might do the same as you.

    It will be about 10 days delay while the bill passes. If we didn't get a majority gvt this last election...the mail could have been out for months!

    You can check on your order on the matty website to see if its been processed, shipped etc. I changed my email before my sub even started and after multiple phone calls to Digital River they still haven't managed to get it right. So i get no notification emails at all and every month I check on Matty just to make sure everything goes through.

    I'm guessing this thread will just die because of Canada Post
    MattOnDemand.com
    Because even your web browser wants me.

    Ahh, choosing different shipping options month-to-month...reason #759 not to own a sub.

    I should receive my figures tomorrow. My shipment was stuck in Kentucky for over 24 hours! I've not seen that happen before...otherwise I should have had it today. I was wondering if UPS was maybe a bit backed up because of the lockout, so it got delayed a bit?

    you think matty would be willing to tell us where our items sit in the US while the strike is on, and for those of us that live close enough, we could just drive and get them in the states?....

    Cuz im imagining months and months of no mail ....

    In your scenario, the packages would make it across the border and sit with Canada Customs, waiting to be released to Canada Post.

    UPS just dropped off my shipment. He said they're crazy busy due to the lockout. But man, I had to pay $16.50 at the door! :facepalm:
    I haven't removed the figures from their cards yet, but they look great.

    I received mine in a brown box. Everything was perfect.

    Why did they ship yours in the bubble mailer and mine in a box? I had assumed that they shipped mine in a box as the white mailer was larger than a MOTUC figure.

    That's weird.

    Nothing here either...and I'm waiting on one item sent BEFORE the strike. Non-Matty related, but I hope it didn't get lost in the mail.

    Same here. So far all I've got is my phone bill. I made two purchases online at the end of May, so I'm starting to get concerned.

    Rumor I heard is there is still 180+ eighteen-wheeler trailers jammed full of just parcels parked, waiting to be brought into the Mississauga Gateway plant that still need to be sorted since the end of the lockout.
    Sounds like our parcels are going to be experiencing a long delay if that's the case, especially with Canada Post not granting any overtime to help clear out the backlog. Maybe closer to a 2 month wait, like back around Christmas '09 with some of our Matty parcels?
