Can second class post take a while to arrive?

I've read on another forum that when someone posted an item out via second class it took around 8 days to arrive! I was just wondering if this is normal as I have been waiting for an item off eBay for a while now (off someone with loads of feedback and a 100%rating) whic was posted in this manner.

2 working days I believe.

It's not guaranteed though.
Well I work for the POSTOFFICE and our policy, is if its 2nd class, let the women deliver it...
Cause they do nothing else in here for us.
8 days is not normal but the post office will not declare it lost until roughly 14 days after it was posted
royal mail state 1-3 days.
I've had it in 1, i've had it in 5, i've had it even longer.
