Question about registered letter

I need my cobra check delivered soon. I mailed it on 7/15, registered.

Due to inability to concentrate on details, I filled the green card that gets stuck on the envelope with just my return address. I forgot, and the clerk didn't remind me, to put the going-to address. The delivery address is very clear on the envelope though. Tracking says it's still in transit, all these days later

Did I fuck up bad? I'm beyond stressed about this. I'm so angry at myself

The green card comes back to you after delivery.

The green card will either come back blank in the "To" section, or mail carrier will fill it out.

Do you have the tracking number?

If you don't have the Tracking Number, it's entirely possible that the spot where you mailed the package 'from' (Post Office, UPS, Fed Ex, or other service) can provide it (the Tracking Number) to you.

With the Tracking Number (and a computer) you should be able to determine exactly where your package is - typically within a few hours OR at least within one day.

Is quite normal - everyone senses it when things don't go exactly as planned.

Please continue to check daily - but don't become too frustrated...
