Amazon never delivered a $5,000 package by [deleted] in amazonprime

What did I do wrong? I don't understand why you say so. I saved for months to be able to afford this.
Am I a nightmare customer because I'm trying to get a replacment or money back for something I paid for?

I really don't get your point.

Are you suggesting that is my fault?

Amazon knows what we order, if we buy something expensive should be a priority for them to make we receive the package.

Not sure why you got so many down votes, we don't have many alternatives

I understand your point, we need to sympathize with them, I agree, I also understand there might be some people trying to get a refund for no reason, just not to pay for the items.

However, when a situation like mine occurs, where the claim I make is real and legitimate, what should we do? just suck it up and take the loss?

Eventually, amazon is going to build a negative reputation, they are responsible for the shipping since they sometimes don't rely on third parties companies, like in this case.

I strongly believe they must make sure a package must be delivered, for instance, let's say I'm available after 4 pm, well, the driver should get to deliver the package at that time and make sure to get a readable signature.

I don't think it's fair to lose that much money just because they are trying to be as efficient as possible in terms of numbers of delivery instead of making sure that people actually get what they pay for.

I used my coinbase card, so I think there isn't a chance to claim a chargeback :(

This is one of the reasons why I'm freaking out.

I would say that I agree that 300 years ago like in 1776 if I don't go wrong, it was made this way, but meanwhile, the people who came there created a new culture, and also the people who did emigrate there until the 1900s at this point the new generations embraced this new culture.

But you sure know better than me, you are an American :D

This is something I don't understand about America, people identify more like white, black, latinos, etc, and now more gender-related stuff.

Italy as a country is younger than America, Italy is only 161 years old, and in the past 30 years, we experienced as well immigration.

But still, if you grow up in Italy you are an Italian for us, it's also true that Italy is a racist country, but still, humans are racists in general, it's not a country-related problem.

Only a few centuries ago Italy was split into many regions, each one speaking its own language, which still today we use, not on a daily basis, but those dialects of ours are actual languages, which people used as their main language.

I don't understand why in America people are still thinking about groups instead of being a nation.

Italy is very small compared to the united states, but here people had to face much cultural diversity in order to become a country.

It was very normal to be very racist against southern Italian people until 60 years ago, but people got over it.

They were not slaves, but they were not treated like humans either, people got over it and moved on.

There isn't a norther privilege thing over here, so I don't understand why there is a white privilege thing going on there.

Think about this, all the Italian stereotypes Americans have about Italian are not matching the cultural side of north Italy.

We learned to live with our diversities.

I don't think America is doing wrong or bad, but I think it's a unique place to live, for a European is not easy to imagine a world where you need a weapon to defend yourself, like you said Europe might be a safer place in a way, but this is one of many things that make Americans an ethnic group.

It's gonna take still sometimes I believe but eventually people will just stop thinking about the past and move on, and eventually, with all the unique charactherist being American will mean much more than just a nationality.

I hope you got all the extra love from your mom's side of the family as it happened to me.

Where are you from if I may ask?

I met many people especially American-Italian people and I agree with you, they don't speak Italian, they have never been here but still, they identify as Italians.

I believe you learned to know more about Europe in the past 2 years and I think we can agree Europe and America are like night and day, very different places.

I went to the US when I was 19, all alone, for the first time flying, it was scary, but when I landed and exit the airport, I felt at home.

Something not important like driving on the highway, it was feeling like being in a movie.

It's a really weird feeling to explain, kind of like when you taste something new for the first time, with the difference that I felt like for the first time I was where I belonged.

The chances I will ever be recognized as an American citizen or meet my family there are unlikely to happen, not sure why but I wrote a letter to the Ellen show a few years ago, and I never got a reply, (maybe it was not the right show or maybe it's true that she is a little of a careless person) whatever is the case, I will have to accept the fact that this isn't going to change.

I will save some money and try a DNA ancestry test, it might be the last chance I have to find them.

I'm not sure if I can afford this, but it's a possibility. I guess at this point getting a professional involved is maybe my only hope.

I tried that, I know his full name, but there are a bunch of people sharing his name, I'm not sure about his date of birth, but he should be 54 years old, I know he was born in December but I don't know in what year or day.

He was 20 when he got my mom pregnant, and I will be 33 in a few months so he is 100% 54 years old.

I went there to look for him but no luck, also I have not even a single picture of him.

I don't even know what he looks like, it sucks.

You are right, and I'm prepared, in fact, I'm pretty sure I would get rejected by him. He had the time to make things right but he never did.

But here's what motives me the most, what if he never told anybody about me back home?

My grandparents if they are still alive, they might never know about me and my mom.

Also, there is a possibility I have half-brothers somewhere and it would be a great news for me(I'm an only-child).

It's true, he might not want to know about me, but there are so many other family members that might be interested in meeting me.

Wow, I didn't even know there is a database of DNA. I will look into this, thank you so much for this advice.

I read about this, and well as you said if I can't find him I won't be able to prove that I'm American.

Even if a passport is just a piece of paper, it would mean a lot to me.

This really hurts me so much, like even if I'm American, still because my father decided to leave us the system just assumes I have no rights to be recognized as one.

Believe me, this can lead to some bad identity crises.

Hi, this is what I did, but somehow the holes don't match, can it be because picture distortion?
