No biggie. A misunderstanding. Be grateful they WILL accommodate you by shipping via USPS. Some just will not.

Yeah, except we're talking about a $27 order including shipping.. You'd think they could have just shipped another one to me without waiting for the one they shipped wrong to come back..

Sometimes it's the foreign mail service.
I worked for a company that had an office in Milan. All our mail went to Switzerland where an employee would make the drive daily to retrieve it, such was the awfulness of the Italian postal service.
If you think I jest, this was about the time that one of the Rothschild's sons was kidnapped in Rome. The kidnappers mailed one of the son's EARS to the family to demonstrate their resolve.
The ear took TEN DAYS to be delivered in the same city.
But everything is relative.
At the turn of the last century, there were FOUR mail deliveries per day in London. One could send an invitation to an afternoon soiree and receive an RSVP long before tea-time.

Sounds like the postman would take the mail out and deliver it as it came in. Unlike today where someone comes once a day with 300lbs of junk mail.
It gets worse though, at least in my apartment building. A number of the delivery people are too lazy to even hit the buzzer code when there's a package delivery. Damned if they're going to bring it up to the front door. They simply paste a 'not at home' tag in the lobby and leave. I've watched them do this on the security camera. Then it's up to me to take the tag and wheel my chair 300 yards to the postal outlet to pick up the package. I've called in and complained a number of times about this, but they don't care.

They should have earmarked the address label.
