also, since when has DOE, EPA, GSA etc, reported a profit???
We use Priority Mail for our Ebay and Amazon biz too, especially Amazon and their anal “sellers must provide tracking numbers to customers or else” rule.
They can deliver for $5 bucks because they are using my tax dollars to subsidize your package. f-that. You are on Mailfare..
How. Interesting I had to mail USPS package today, of course they PO is only open from 10-3.
An 11.3 ounce envelope cost $5.39 and that was with zero extras, that translation took 20 minutes.
The curse of the USPS is they are not allowed by the Federal Government to adapt to the changing market.
They need fixing but I’m OK with the postal service for the most part.
Granted they have union issues but it didn’t help that congress set an impossible pension funding goal. Hell they can’t even raise their rates without congressional approval.
I had three packages somehow disappear when they were sent to me via USMail. Three packages within five months. I will not use them anymore.
I still call UPS “The Big Brown Truck Of Happiness”
Used the online print label thing, went by PO, no one in line, handed it to the lady, see ya........
ping (sort of)
I regularly order from vitacost.com and keurig.com. Recently they have both switched to using Smartpost. They transfer their items from UPS to USPS. Since then, our orders take significantly longer to get here. FU USPS!
I just wish my Postmaster would take her nose ring out. :-)
USPS just dumps stuff off in the open.
UPS knows my schedule, comes back when they know I am home and asks for a signature.
I always worry with USPS.
Their tracking is appreciated though, and the rates are good.
Did you contact your Postmaster?
I used to ship a lot. Never had Fedex or UPS lose a package. Misdelivered? Yes, and they went back, picked it up, and deliveried it correctly. Temporarily lost? Yes, but always found since they actually track it in real time, not where it was yesterday like USPS.
Only USPS seems to have the unique ability to completely lose a package into thin air. I’ve had it happen too many times.
I now receive a fair amount. For me, there’s no price cheap enough to take that risk again. I don’t purchase from sellers who will only ship USPS.
sorry, UNLIKE DOE, EPA, GSA, etc, USPS is self funded. No tax dollars spent.
please complain to your congress critter about the other depts I mentioned!!!
We still call them the box nazis
Were you alive in 1976?
I’m not sure where you are coming from here. DOE, EPA, GSA should all be disbanded. At least the USPS does something useful.
I had an Ebay package with the usual delivery confirmation that scanned arrival near the end of June as delivered.
It wasn’t and of course the local USPS types were useless. It wasn’t a big or pricey thing, actually it was an old car part to be sacrificed for an idea.
Anyway after I gave up on it, the box finally appeared a few days ago at my UPS Store box.
The previously referenced idea can be seen here with the old speedometer stuff:
I pulled the glass, locked it down in a good vise, hooked a cable and spun it with a drill. I could never top 50, most likely due to the drill.
99% of the time I never have any complaints with what little I deal with USPS.
