First id check the tracking info online for the label. If nothing shows up then id risk it if it's not time sensitive. Worst case is it gets sent back (might take a bunch of days though).
Tracking says arrival at post office and  out for delivery in my city.

So that means can't be reused?

You can reuse it. Same label. Just have the clerk scan it as accepted when you hand it over.

He showed it to other window,  old frum guy,  he said it's not a package,  and threw it back at me
that guy is the nastiest person I've ever met. I sadly have to deal with him daily

They other guy was also rude,  he first told me it's illegal bit he took it and when i left he wrote on it "not a package"  return to sender.

So i should repackage and not void,  try to get them to ship?

And our post offices have such long lines and they are laying of employees.

In order for it to be considered a package,  it needs to be more than 3/4' thick.  (that's what the guy in the post office told me the other day)

@meshugener,  you were right about the 99 cents tracking on a first class package.  Got it yesterday.

So I repackaged into a box ( don't ask me why that is better)
They took it and scanned it but there is no tracking update as there's already prior tracking ,it already shows delivered in Brooklyn.
Will tracking update because I need it for ebay protection?

Did you see the clerk scan it, and/or did you get a receipt? Then it's scanned. Their system could take hours to update the tracking. Give it time.

This post office is known for it's long lines, don't care about anybody and they make their own rules.


I Agree. I was once at the PO to deliver a package and took me about an hour to reach the window.
Next time will Fedex it

Is your post office better?

In Athens the post office has chairs and uses a number system  to call next customer --- the PO does mail as u would expect -- it also sells phone cards - pay electric bills -- pay phone bills, water bills etc. --it is also a bank -- in this country many are on a cash system and do not pay by credit card -- i try to stay away from it---- also no such thing as a letter box to receive mail in apt. building , postman leaves the "buildings" mail in a bundle outside of main entrance and anyone picks it up and looks for own mail , you find out a lot about a person just looking at his unopened mail that is why  i use a p.o. box

when I compare Athens with NY post offices -- about same except greater chance to run into a lazy or nasty person in ny
