Got that nervous feeling

Did a steakhouse shop for RBG earlier this week. You all know the one...the reimbursement only (unless you hold out for the measly bonus in three weeks) bar shop The only shop I will do for no shopper fee. Almost always an RBG editor has my report graded within hours of my filing.
This time, it's been three days now and nothing. The shop still shows received in my log, but no score on it, no sign it's been approved, and my overall rating is still the same.
But the listing is back on the job board.
They are making me nervous. Not stressed, just nervous.And I'd really like to put my physical receipt in a file already.

There's not much point to this post, just typing really.

One of the locations I do gets shopped 6 times per month.

tex, at the beginning of the month, tell the scheduler you will do the shop for a bonus. This way, you won't be working for ribs.

Hmmmm...very good idea. There is one very close to me that I do close to every three months....except recently because the local health report on restaurants came out and it had some issues...ugh.

There is also one that is a 20 mile drive from me and I often *think* about picking it up, but then I never do because I don't want to spend the money on gas for reimbursement only. (and when my husb and I go, we always spend more than $35 anyway....) It's also a shop that (amazingly) sits on the board for a long time and always has the $5 bonus and always has the "urgent" emails. Think I could get more than the $5 bonus due to the drive if I said I'd do it at the beginning of the month?
That shop for me used to be graded and approved within minutes of completion. That isn’t the case all the time and often there is quite a delay. Also as others have said some locations have a lot of shops. I would not worry about it one bit. It’s so straight forward and even when something unusual has happened I have never been questioned.
I have seen the *really* hard to fill locations go for $20. The location that I do is shopper heavy. When I contacted the scheduler at the beginning of the month to request the shop with a bonus, she said the highest she could go was $5. I was expecting $3.

@HonnyBrown, Thanks. I'll go ahead and ask for it next month, with a bigger bonus than $5
