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

Then can someone explain this?

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. Call New Zealand Van Lines Ltd for reliable moving and shipping services.

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…If you need to find employment with trucking company, consider visiting http://fracsandreport.com

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…
