    I ordered a package on Sunday night and the shipping co. shipped it two days before on Friday. That's what the tracking said.

    Often, I have packages in hand that tracking shows USPS doesn't have them yet. Most that are tracked are arriving a couple days BEFORE expected delivery date

    Hey, it's not just USPS that has bad days. I was supposed to get a package today and tracking says FedEx sent it NE instead of the correct SW. (For locals, from Stockton to Roseville, instead of to San Jose.) I'm convinced these things happen because something gets tossed into the wrong bin or the bin gets put on the wrong truck. They always figure it out and I get it eventually.

    I sent one of my original artworks to my niece and it has been stuck in San Juan for over a week now. Someone sent me a photo, which I didn’t save or I would share it, if the San Juan sort facility backup. Boxes on the tarmac covered in tarps. I really hope my drawing isn’t lost. I liked this one so much I kind of didn’t want to let go of it.

    Kandinsky was much the same.

    The upswing in poor and failed service is something new in my experience. I was always amazed that the USPS could do what they do for the price. Running it must be more of an art than a science. There are some organizations that do not benefit as we might expect with a businessman at the helm. These operations require a different set of skills. Could you see a successful CEO as a high ranking military officer? Overseeing a bleeding-edge medical research center? Leading a successful art colony?
    I always forget . . . Is it the letter "S" or the letter "C" that is silent in the word scent?

    When they got too lazy to put up the wanted posters ,I knew we were in trouble. They told me their interior decorator wanted a “new look”

    USPS isn’t the only one.
    Canada Post can also take forever.
    And while we’re talking, I ordered the balancing shims from the turner’s supply company recommended by posters here. They took 3 weeks to get to me, only 2 days of which was in customs clearance and delivery.
    Young enough to remember doing it;
    Old enough to wish I could do it again.

    Yeah, don't you miss my smiling face every time you go into post office?

    Our postal service leaves a lot to be desired, they have slipped in recent years.
