    I thought a package had gotten stolen, but it turns out the Post office is taking their sweet ass time to get it from Kennasaw to Sandy Springs. I could have walked there and back in less time. WTF?

    In Transit to Next Facility
    Your package will arrive later than expected, but is still on its way. It is currently in transit to the next facility.

    I was just reading the tracking history for a package I'm waiting on from Newnan. It was supposed to be here Friday. Started out at the Newnan post office on the 8th. Then on to Atlanta . From Atlanta it went to Jacksonville which is normal procedure. But instead of coming back North to me here in Darien it went West to Pensacola. Last activity showed it going back to Jacksonville. Then it said my package would be late but was on its way.
    Duhhh...

    I'm beginning to wonder if the government shutdown is giving USPS government holidays. I have a couple of packages that are taking unusually long. One was shipped from Naples, FL on the 3rd. I did choose first class, but that usually takes about 4-5 days.

    We had a package coming from Kansas, went to Memphis, to PA. then to LaGrange, Griffin, Atlanta, then to Jacksonville, back to Pa., and then back to Atlanta, and finally got it 17 days later.

    A story SOOOO familiar to me.
    Our USPS is VERY unpredictable, I am happy they get the mail eventually IN the mailbox.
    A 2 on a scale of 10.

    Sent a USPS MO to Houston TX before Christmas, got to Houston in 4 days, good enough deal. Spent the next 10 days bouncing around different post offices in Houston area.

    Thank goodness I popped for sending it priority mail, for the tracking.

    Y'all think maybe they're just trying to make the gubment shutdown painful for us non gubment employees? I'm really not used to this kinda retarded bull**** from them.

    Yeah, I smell a rat. USPS is pretty ****ty most of the time, but it looks like they are going out of the way to play "package roulette" lately. Rat Basterds.

    The real problem with USPS is that the workers are in a union. They hide behind the union contract. Do less than stellar jobs and EXPECT you to accept their crappy work as the best you can get.
