I've been waiting a month for a letter-sized item with tracking to arrive from Florida.
And I'm in Maryland.
Describe it as if there were no picture.

It seems that with the new year, not only did the USPS get slower, they also became more inefficient. I've had packages that seemed to just go in circles between a few facilities until finally being delivered or ending up in a city that's hundreds of miles opposite the direction it should be going! One good-sized package was picked up by a mailman and there were no tracking scans for nearly a week and a half. It didn't even show they were in possession of it that whole time and it was a "Priority" package!

The only positive thing I can say is that every package I've sent or received has made it to the destination, eventually....so far.

The United States Post Office should be disbanded, all personal and facilities should be sold off the UPS and FedEx!

I agree, the post office is a joke. 11 days ago I placed an order with an internet dealer in Colorado, They sent me a tracking number the next day that showed the USPS received the package. Just got an update today from USPS and the package is now in Montana - supposed to be heading East towards Ohio, not North to Montana.....
Everything can change in just one day.........

Negative.

I may be an exception, but USPS is way more reliable (and cheaper) than UPS and FedEx for me.

Hey- I got a great idea. Why don't you start a survey thread and get opinions.

Feel free to start that topic or poll.

Personally, I am good. I know the USPS is not going away or being privatized any time soon.

i have been having a nightmare with the USPS.
This is an actual tracking history from a package that I sent. I had to deal with an annoyed buyer contacting me several times and requesting a refund while their item was still on the way. I had many similar examples, but this may be the worst.

I think you're right, it's shouldn't be privatized. It should be cannibalized!

C'mon MOSman, the USPS was only in shambles before, now (for some reason ) It's running like a fine oiled machine

Well, it's actually working out for me pretty good now. My relationship with the USPS is as limited as I can make it.

I only really get low priority junk thru the mail anyway. Advertisements, junk mail and Christmas cards.

All my important stuff is on-line.

The USPS is "not" efficient. It's hemorrhaging money! How much of "your" tax dollars has it lost?....

Don't answer that.

I guess you're right. It can't get any worse, it can only get better.
