Our latest delayed package is my wife breathing medicine. Why would anyone trust USPS to ship medicine on time.

I have been waiting for a holster to get to Oklahoma from the East coast for over 10 days. The USPS says to be patient. So I just ordered a different holster from the same place just to see how long it takes to get here. I bet the second one gets here before the first. Gross incompetence at its finest. But, it is the Government so.....

Ups and fedex are prioritizing their packages on flights. Leaving usps at their mercy...once again this is the result of congress fucking them by not 'allowing' them to have their own aircraft..

From what I can tell from my orders, 1st class and Parcel Select gets pushed aside. Everything else seems to get to me on time. Shouldn't have to pay for priority if the shipping location is one state away. Over 2 months for the last one. Just PS BS...

I ordered a plastic bushing last year (OK, actually the 31st) to repair a sticky refrigerator door. It promptly shipped from Utah to Kentucky, jumping right over middle America, and stalled there for ten days. Looks like it might be in the vicinity finally -- we'll see if it actually shows up today.

Either today, or tomorrow, I will receive my first class mail cable TV bill, that payment was due yesterday, January 10. It had been mailed three weeks ago.

You pay electronically? Screw paper bills. Took me months to shred all old records and bills. Paperless billing and no more crammed filing cabinets. A book of stamps last me over a year.

Yes, I pay some electronically, now, but I had no modem service, until recently, as I had traveled, with no base of operations. I would pick up my mail, when I got to my parents house on Friday night/Saturday morning, after traveling nearly one hundred miles from work to the house. I am, slowly, moving in the electronic payment scheme, now that I have a base of operations.

So the part did show up late yesterday, and I can proceed with the 10-minute repair and respond to the e-mails I have been receiving for a week asking to share my experience with the part and service -- hard to give a review when I didn't have the item...
