Worried about my worms!!!

So I thought I had fool proofed the shipment of my worms. I had them shipped to my work as there is always someone there. I let everyone know that I was expecting a shipment that needed to be signed for. I talked to them about what is was, and that is was extremely important that they call me so I could come pick it up if I wasn't there that day. so.....I get a text at 8pm tonight with a pic of a box of worms. Apparently it came in late this afternoon:( Unfortunately, I am not going to be able to get it home until tomorrow night!

Are my worms doomed?!?! Is there anything I can do tomorrow at work to help them out?

Thanks!

They should be just fine, even for several days, as long as the temperature doesn't get too hot, and that is not likely. They are in a dark, moist, relatively cool environment, just like home. Probably have really big worm smiles.

Awesome. Thank you! I started thinking that they couldn't possibly be THAT fragile.
