Just mailed a Priority Mail envelope to El Paso and it took 11 days to get there and that is not the first time. 10 days for a letter from Indianapolis to Georgia, not Atlanta. IMO, there are problems.

We used to get consistent 2nd day service when Amazon shipped with FedEx and UPS. With USPS, doesn't happen 80+% of the time.

Here's my USPS story of the day.

I had 2 packages coming yesterday. The driver is making deliveries in the neighborhood and one of my packages falls off the truck, into a pile of leaves. A neighbor messages me and says that she found my package (she is on the other side of the development). She said she saw the truck parked there and my package must have been on a bumper or just fell out of the door and into the pile of leaves in the street. Later my remaining package was delivered, and I got the text saying that package was delivered.

Then the kicker, at 5:00 I get another text saying that the (dropped) package was delivered. I'm guessing that the mail carrier noticed his truck was empty so he just marked it delivered.

If not for the neighbor seeing my package on a pile of leaves in the street I would have had to fight it out with the shipper that I never received the package (USPS marked "Left at front door").

So shady.

My wife ordered something that was shipped from Greensboro, was updated last Sunday to show that it was received by USPS and still hasn't made it to our door. It was something that was intended as a gift to be given this past weekend and so it's more than a bit frustrating.

27615, and we have the same thing--sometimes as late as 6:30 or 7:00 PM, and that was before the Holiday season.

Then, just when you get used to them coming late, they come at 11 AM the day you had something to go out.

USPS tracking showed my package out for delivery today. Should have been small enough to fit in the mailbox. Mail came early today, before 6pm, package did not make it. Tracking now shows it back at the post office. Incompetence, does not even begin to describe the USPS.

I think that's what annoys me the most about the USPS. And where do you go to complain? Nowhere!

I know for a fact that my package fell out of the truck into a pile of leaves on the street (about 1.5 miles from my house), yet at the end of his day the mail carrier marked it "delivered".

Yep, they are all about covering their own backsides. Just like I mentioned with "guaranteed" delivery tumes, and them marking them as delivered when they never even made an attempt. They simply point out, "it was delivered on the 2nd day"and according to their records, it was. My package is saying it was delivered today. Curious to see if it's there or not. Since our mail hasn't been running till after 8pm.

Did anyone in 27615 receive mail delivery today- Monday 1/25? I can understand no mail delivery last Friday or Saturday due to the snow/ice, but was expecting mail today. I guess I expected too much.....no mail.
