YES!!! My packages finally came!!! FCOL, man...
When I went on my lunch break at 1, I noticed a mini van pull into our driveway and thought, "Aha!!! They're finally here!" The guy was nice enough... A little spacey (or high - he asked me how I was doing today... twice... within a minute...), but polite. I doubt he has any clue what I've been going through waiting for these damn packages.
So, the full update is that I have my packages. No response yet from the shipping company, and no response from Amazon (though, in all fairness, I just sent them an email an hour or so ago), but I have my shit. This pleases me.
What have I been waiting for, you ask? Glee: The Music, Volume 4, a knife for my hubby, and a Christmas present. Nothing spectacular, but still great nonetheless. :-)
Edit: At 1:42 PM, I got the following from the shipping company.

Awesome. Thanks for waiting to answer until 30 minutes after I got my delivery. Which, of course, was 3 days late. That's really professional.
Also, I feel I must point out that the driver clearly did not leave it at my front door. He delivered it to me personally, as I answered the door. They also didn't address any of my concerns regarding the inaccurate information on their site. Here's hoping Amazon gives them the boot soon...
