It was postmarked June 4th. I received both forms as expected. I had sent my end of the trade on May 28th. I will make sure from now on to check a person's feedback before trading with that person. It took longer for the envelope to get here than I thought it would or should. I always get my trades out within a day or two and thought that's the way it is with anyone who wants to trade on here and who also wants a good trading reputation.
I can say without a doubt that if I had too many irons in the fire with taking care of elderly people on top of getting over an illness and trying to keep track of trades in addition to all that, I would be overwhelmed and then some. I wouldn't want to disappoint people getting their trades out late, and I also wouldn't want to totally go bonkers trying to do the impossible. I would quit trading with people. When a person tries to do more than she can handle, nothing gets done properly. Everything suffers because there is not enough time to do everything. Lots of traders get disappointed and the person trying to be Wonder Woman gets a bad trading reputation.
IMO, I think it would be best if Anne would concentrate on what she needs to do, take care of herself and her family, and discontinue the extracurricular activity, i.e. refunding/trading. Doing what she's currently doing is apparently not working for her or for people on RS.
I hope that Anne gets over her illness and I appreciate the fact that she did actually get my trade mailed, but it was SLOW. I wouldn't want to trade with someone again who takes that long to mail out a trade, so I will make it a habit to check his/her feedback first!
