This thread totally cracks me up. I can't believe no one at the USPS can look at a printout of this thing, make a call and intercept this parcel. It is utterly ridiculous.

The guy at the Post Office told me "Well at least there is tracking on it so we know where it is at..."

That is about where it stands at now...

I started putting out redelivery notices on it to see what happens...

Wow the 10,000 mile package.
I heard that the post office is asking for a tax payer handout/bailout!
You should contact your local news stations and speak to a reporter. We need to get this story out to the public.

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.
That's sorta bad.

Their flat rate boxes are a good price. Unfortunately, it's not always going to get there quickly. I have a friend who uses those all the time and it hasn't been bad. I have shipped with USPS, but I really prefer UPS. FedEx is too expensive and everything goes through Memphis, regardless of where it's going, which is insane, considering the destination may only be 300 miles from the shipper. With UPS, I go online, print a label, pack it and drop it off at a local drug store that ships or if it's small enough, I put it in a UPS box about 1/2 mile form my house. Their tracking is great, unlike USPS.
