What’s With the Post Office?

     “Rain, Sleet or Snow.”  That used to be the motto of the Post Office, right?

     Then can someone explain this?

Ship date 1/14/2009
Destination KNOXVILLE,TN 37912-5642
Weight 0.2336
Date/Time Location Details
1/14/2009 5:30 PM EDISON, NJ PICK UP
1/14/2009 5:41 PM RUTHERFORD, NJ ARRIVAL ORIGIN MAIL FACILITY

1/17/2009 10:33 AM KNOXVILLE, TN DELIVERED
1/19/2009 8:01 AM FOREST PARK, GA ARRIVAL DESTINATION MAIL FACILITY
1/19/2009 10:05 AM FOREST PARK, GA OUT FOR DELIVERY

     It is, of course, now January 22nd, and the package is no closer to being delivered.  Although, it was already delivered.  And then shipped to Atlanta.  Where it’s out for Delivery again.

     Now, I usually wouldn’t bitch about something like this, because it happens on occasion.  But Five out of Five packages sent via USPS between January 9th and January 17th have shown similar disarray.  It is apparent that Knoxville’s 37950 Mail Facility has lost a few trucks…
     And I have customers breathing down my neck waiting on all this stuff… Guaranteed 2-Day Shipping to most major centers, indeed.  Apparently, Knoxville is no longer important.

     Although, I do feel sorry for the poor bastard who’s apparently walking from Atlanta to deliver this… Those hills around Chattanooga are a real bitch…

    I’ve had the exact same problem. It was suppose to be 2-day shipping and it took over a week!

    Once I looked at the weather on NYTIMES.com. It said High 43 degrees. Low 37 degrees. Current temperature: 46 degrees. WTF!? I feel you dude, sometimes I think the world is coming apart at the seems. If you cant trust UPS who can you trust? That’s why I am moving to Russia.
