The USPS has gone to hell

I can't believe how bad the USPS has gotten, I placed 5 orders with different places about 1 week before Thanksgiving.

I received 1 about 5 days later.

1 is showing delayed at a Florida P.O. with an expected delivery date of 12-1, hasn't changed in over a week.

1 shows shipped from Georgia to Mississippi, they can't find it.

1 shows being dropped off at a P.O. in California never to be seen again.

All have tracking numbers, they all show actually being received at a Post Office.

This has to be an all-time low for the USPS.

Yes, but their shipping rates are less than UPS and FedEx so I usually choose USPS when I have the choice. I just click the buy button and forget about it. I figure it will get here when it gets here regardless of how many times I trace it or complain on Internet forums. If there's something I need right way I'll pay a higher premium to ship it via UPS or FedEx and avoid blood pressure spikes waiting for USPS.

You're not alone, Chuck. The USPS blows.

I've seen stuff sit in an Eastern distribution center for days. Then it shows up on the West Coast. Then it's at my local post office. Then it's back at a distribution center. They could learn something about shipping from the Chinese.

Don't get me or Rick started on USPS!!

You guys remember the .44mag Winchester lever action I bought back in October?? Well the big red Priority envelope with tracking that I mailed the Postal Money Order in to this day is still showing "In Transit" to Colorado...
I had to pay $6.25 to initiate a "Money Order Inquiry" so the post office can investigate that it's lost and has NOT been cashed before I can get my money back on the $935.00 MO.
I got a official letter from USPS last week they should be sending me a refund check within the next 15 business days, I counted today it's only been 7 days since I got that letter.
Today I found our mail and 4 or 5 bag type packages CRAMMED into our big mailbox like garbage.
Yesterday afternoon I found a box on the front porch while taking Kracker outside and it had Walmart logo's on it. When I picked it up I heard something rattling like broken glass. Asked wifey what she ordered, shirts and pants for her Dad ok, what else two big scented candles that come in glass jars with a lid. I could smell apple/cinnamon. Yep one of the candles was DRT...(dead right there) broke all to hell. Now it was Sunday and I have no idea if it came by way of USPS or the Brown truck?

If you want it lost use USPS. If it gets to its destination they will leave it on the front porch which it will then be stolen by some degenerate!

You're a middleman, brother. You pay to have one truck bring garbage and put it in a box by the street. You bring the pile out of the box and into the house, where you check it to make sure there's nothing important obscured within the Pottery Barn catalogs. Then you have to take the pile out back and put it into a bin. Then on Wednesday, you pay another giant truck to come and haul it away.

I don't know why they don't just send the garbage man directly to the post office, and leave us out of the equation.

It's 6:45, and our mailman still hasn't come by the house. He's always racking up twelve hour days. If they REALLY wanted to fix the USPS, they'd just sell it to Jeff Bezos.

Exactly right except the BIG YELLOW truck comes on Thursday however your almost correct yellow truck comes early or at least before I want to drag my ass and the huge can to the street so I move it out on Wednesday evening.

People used to take pride in their work. Now they can even pass a drug test.
