What's the story behind that? No hardware store by you? Amazon won't ship to you?

The freeze we just went thru has all the plumbing parts scarce anywhere is Texas. If you didn’t have them before you won’t find them now. Even the supply houses are waiting on shipments.

Oh Geesh. There goes my street cred as a DB. LOL.

1) That box was packed waaaaaaaayyyyy more pretty before you got your mitts in it. LOL.
2) Joe... I'll talk to my 10 year-old on the cookies. She's pestering me to death to "let her" make more.

After the last week and a half he and the employees had, it should be mandatory to have such a stash at the workplace.

being that this all took place within a weeks time frame, no way in hell did they ship USPS! 1) because it made it to its destination way to fast 2) the box is not damaged 3) he didnt have to sit on hold with the post office for 16 hours.

Did OldPete ask if there was anyone in your household who had peanut allergies before he sent that package?
