Mailed a ball.

Found a thing on Pinterest about mailing things not in a package. One was a ball. DS was going to my sisters for the week. I mailed a ball last Thursday and it still hasn't gotten there. It has stamps and the address on it.
Has anyone else mailed a funny item? Did it get there or no?
Some other items it says you can mail are a flip flop, frisbee, plastic shovel.

Edit: there is even a company that will mail it for you.

I'm guessing it was "lost" (thrown away). I doubt the post office is keen on this little game.

It is illegal for them to toss it. Why is mailing a ball a game?

Maybe it rolled off the conveyor. I work at UPS, and I'm constantly finding round objects that the sorters missed because they rolled away...

It's not up to the post office to decide what to deliver and not deliver. If there's an address and stamps they legally have to deliver it.

You just stuck stamps and address label onto the ball without wrapping it up? It could roll or bounce away.

The whole point is mailing it without it being in a package.
