    Wrap your head around what is being shown in this tracking history and see if it makes any sense . . . . . .

    "Package Delivered" last Friday, but somehow, yesterday, they decided to "return it to the sender" right about the time I filed a NON-DELIVERY COMPLAINT!

    USPS is swamped like they have never been. While not making excuses I do understand mistakes happen when they have the volume they deal with daily.
    I've had packages get sent out, come back to the regional office then sent back and delivered but have never had a package/parcel not get to it's destination.
    I give them credit and I stay patient...they deal with a lot. So does UPS/FedEx.
    Just how it is right now.

    Even the tracking system may not be accurate. Monday, I received an email from USPS that a package I was expecting from Florida would be delivered later that day. Email had tracking no. in it. So, I go to the USPS website and put in the tracking no. Response was that package was still in the regional facility in Florida. And I still haven't received it, and the website says it's still in Florida. My daily USPS emails now make no mention of it. Crazy!

    It ain't Christmas any more Virginia . . . . .

    Mailing rates are less than 50% what they were in December.

    Don't blame the USPS, blame the Board of Governors and the postmaster general. This is all their doing.

    Those aren't the people carrying the packages and making the delivery scans. A lot of the blame still lies on the workers who can't properly put something in the right mail box or fail to scan (and in some cases even steal-333 arrests just in the last reporting year).

    The last USPS delivery I got traveled through 4 states and 9 locations before it got here 14 days after shipment.

    The order was from a company 2 hours away in my home state.

    I had a Fed Ex packaged delivered last Tuesday morning. It had shipped 18 hours prior on Monday from 2 states away.

    Damn straight . . .

    No Landis love today. As a matter of fact, no Postal delivery at all to our building today.

    I last checked at 7:30pm as I was heading out the door.

    You know, I hate blaming workers (being one myself, you know...), as I know very often just how hamstrung employees are by rules, the organization's stupid ideas, etc. and when they have suggestions for making things better/efficient, nobody in the organization listens because, "oh..that's just one of those pesky humans we have to hire.." and not a customer who's threatening to take away the cookie if they don't entertain her suggestion.

    However, I think there MAY be a grain of truth in what you say. I think a lot of businesses (maybe USPS is no exception) are having a hard time hiring and retaining basically competent people. Just based on some things that I've experienced...

    They did that serval cities. Was nice but that had to be a money loser overall.

    I live in a place where I know some of the older postal employees at the PO for over 20 years. And boy can they share some opinions on how the post office has been gutted and left out to rot. Of course the PO is having a hard time hiring new people. Who in their right mind would want to work there? One of the clerks was telling me awhile back how he missed the days when his employer really was the United States Postal SERVICE!

    I ordered something last week from a vendor in Miami, FL. I live about 150 miles away in SW Florida. The package was routed through TULSA, OK and has been sitting there for over a week. Why the USPS would send a package 1300+ miles out of the way is anybody's guess. It's easy to understand why they have gone broke. I had a similar experience in December, so this is not a weird one time mistake.
