AM I am insulted to think that you treat me like one .....Some of my parcels to Canada can take up to 9 weeks to get there....you have given me just over 4 weeks and not even once contacted me to let me know you had not received it......DISSAPPOINTED IS NOT THE WORD FOR IT......check out my previous ratings you can tell that I am not a Flaker.....Just hope that you will at least have the fairness to rate me correctly when you finally receive BOTH your parcels.....Jeez !!!!!!

I agree with @mizvicky I always PM my partners first! It still isn't fun tracking down people, but at least I give someone a fair chance! If you ever want to a private swap, just PM me. :) HUGS!!

mizvicky on Sep 11, 2010:

Please do not be through with swap bot because of 1 swapper that has NO clue how the system works..

PM Rachel (ADMIN) and let her know what is going on..If you have proof you sent it., MAYBE the 1 can be taken off..

4 weeks is NOT enough time for a swap.. Mine took 6 weeks to get there!! BOO for her for giving you a 1..

Thanks for the Coffee LP! I was reading your profile and we have lots in common. 4 kids- mine range from 16-2, 3 boys and 1 girl. My 2 yr. old will be 3 in December. I used to be a hair stylist, but no longer do that. We love handmade and the kids love swap-bot!. And my older boys are allergic to housework and homework, amazing :)
