I'm not one to usually place a post like this, but when I see people discrediting a business (and a good one at that) before all the facts are in, I feel inclined to say something.
For starters, as others have said, the USPS is the worse option out there if you're concerned with getting your package by a particular date and their tracking system is absolutely terrible. I've seen their tracking engine say "notified for pick-up" after a package has been delivered to me, so you can't count on anything there. And on top of that, the post office can take anywhere from 2-10 days for delivery...with no rhyme or reason to their delivery times.
Next off, why wouldn't you wait to find out all of the details before coming on here and publicly bashing Adorama? What if they are not in the wrong? POTN is a quality website and it's a shame when it gets cluttered up with posts such as this (if they did nothing wrong) and the Adorama post that was unfairly posted a few days ago.

Like I said, hopefully it's an isolated incident.
Let's move on...
Move on? Kind sir, you started this thread. People are going to post replies.

There's an Adorama rep that trolls this site too....Helen Oster I think is her name.
Helen does not "troll" around on POTN. She provides good information and customer service to POTN members. We are very fortunate to have representatives like her and Henry from B&H.
Back to the OP's situation. I really hope the grip arrives in time and I certainly understand your concern. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you that the USPS delivers it in time. All I kindly ask is that you wait until all of the facts are in before starting a thread such as this. It will help POTN readers differentiate between the really bad stores (such as Broadway Photo) and the really great ones such as Adorama and B&H.
Thanks and best of luck,
