<p>and I can't decide whether to be amused that some random person is going to get the surprise of opening a homebirth kit (tee hee) or just really uncomfortable that some stranger (or maybe a neighbor of mine) is going to be digging through something that personal, especially since some of it needs to be kept SANITARY. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Since I live in an apartment I'm already a little sensitive about my privacy regarding the hb... maybe that's part of it.  Fortunately, I still have time and can wait for FedEx to correct the error... but I just don't like the idea that when I finally get my homebirth kit it will probably have been opened.  Grr!</p>

<p>have you tried contacting the seller and see what they say about you refusing the delivery from fedex for the first shipment and having it replaced with another considering the *sanitary* concerns (which I totally get) </p>

<p>luv-my-boys, maybe I should do that... it's just that the seller seems to be a small home business, and as it's not their fault I hate to get them involved.  But maybe there's a way for them to get reimbursed by FedEx?</p>
<p> </p>
<p>In any case, I do plan to recommend that the seller consider a different courier in the future.  I've had nothing but problems with FedEx.</p>

<p>Hopefully they won't open it, I don't open anything if I didn't order it because some places charge to ship back once it's opened even if it's the wrong address! I found that out the hard way, so if I didn't order it, and it doesn't have my name on it or I recognize it, then I call the shipping company to come take it back.</p>

<p>On a side note, my friend ordered an adult swing from one of those home-based "adult" toy companies. Someone did indeed open it and then set it next to her mail box, open, and it knocked over and feel out a little, so everyone who drove by caught a glimpse of it!</p>

<p>Phew -- looks like it just went to my apartment leasing office.  Still bothers me that they left NO notice or anything, but at least the package was there and unopened.  <img alt="thumb.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/thumb.gif"></p>
