"In transit, arriving on time"

Is

Not

a Usefull

Tracking Status!

It is the equivalent of "I'm with the Government, trust me".

You must be talking about the USPS

They SUCK 8 days a week

I love it when they say "Expected Delivery Fri June 7" on Saturday morning

Plus they can't measure a box for shite!!!!

I especially like the ones that give you a 10 day range of dates to expect it.. and yes, it's typically low cost shipping options for items you're in no screaming rush to receive.. shipped from, say, Arlington, Virginia and going to, say, Kaysville, Utah. Then you get a shipping/tracking confirmation on the very first day. Great. Next day it's in Memphis, next day later it's in Denver, next day after that it hits Salt Lake City.. and there sits, 20 miles away, for SEVEN MORE DAYS.

Ordered special lighted letters for daughter's wedding. I think it was four in all. Ordered in, like, August to make sure they'd be here by wedding in October. Got one around Christmas. The others still aren't here. However, I did receive a package of broken plastic parts that resembles nothing my wife and I have ever ordered. So there's that.

@2WD - >>>left sitting on my front steps when I came home today<<<

Actually, the delivery driver tried to put in into the house for you, but you have soooo many guitars already in there he just couldn't get it wedged in, so he left it as close as possible.

I have had BOTH of my local Post Offices try to cheat me with too-short tape measures.
I am going to start bringing my Own tape measure.

These were Pre-Paid boxes that they tried to Add Fees to.
I told them, "It has a paid label and postage... Are you gonna take it, or not?"

But I have decided that for cross-county, USPS is still better than FedEx.

Gosh the tape measures at my post office appear to conform to international standards! I guess the post offices in your vicinity just do not measure up??
