It's a new record! At 549 days, Bob Sweeney has surpassed Mike Grier by a full two weeks to capture the status of my longest wait for a success. It's my third wait of 500+ days and my first successful request to span three calendar years (sent in 2010, received in 2012). My best guess would be that this letter simply got lost. Mr. Sweeney is an 80% signer according to SCN, with most of his requests (including several during the time I was waiting) coming back in about a month.
