U.S. Postal Service Problems

Just in case any of you do not already know.....

The U.S. Postal Service sucks fat monkey balls!!! No wonder they are going bankrupt!!!

I emailed them through their Customer Service link, tried calling and all I got was an automated circle.

So all it seems I can do is watch this package go to and from Memphis, Tn.

Ya it is pretty hard to get anyone from USPS - one told me the track and confirm is not actually tracking service, and that packages don't necessarily need to get scanned.

I assume you are recieving this package?

In person you can occasionally get an escalation of your complaint if you are at a large post office, the small regional ones not so much.

At least you get a tracking result. I have never been able to successfully track a package via USPS. Most of the time, it shows up in their tracking system after being delivered.

That's funny.

I shipped some ski bindings USPS Parcel Post from New Orleans to Seattle and they took 38 days to get there.

UPS and FedEx get results and their tracking is accurate !

Me too!!

I showed my wife this last night and we both just cracked up! It's amazing how poor their tracking really is.....

UPS or FedEx if it has any type of significance.

Went to the post office... That turned out to be just as pointless as using their website...
