I waited from Dec 26 to Jan 9 for an Ebay purchase to arrive. Had already waited half a month for a previous package. Still waiting on another mailed on Dec 26. Have been given info by 3 USPS employees, all state COVID related... INCLUDING the fact FedEx and UPS stopped taking in packages from major shippers like Old Navy, etc in Dec. to handle COVID related shipments (vaccine etc).
I could type more, but all it will do is get my blood pressure up.
I sent a package from SE Wisconsin to a buyer in the Detroit area. I mailed it on December 28 and it disappeared from tracking after December 30. Three trips to the post office only yielded information about huge delays in the Detroit area.
It finally reappeared on USPS tracking on January 29 and was delivered the next day.
Fortunately, I had a very patient buyer. I kept him informed as best I could.
