    [​IMG] I am so fed up right now. I just came from our local post office because I hadn't received 2 boxes of hatching eggs that were supposed to be here yesterday and this morning. One of the boxes sat in the Atlanta postal center for 36 hours. What a joke! I wish there were some other way to do this. Maybe that's why the postal system is in the red and shutting down post offices and laying off people. POOR CUSTOMER SERVICE!!!
    There...I feel better. [​IMG]

    I agree. I am NOT HAPPY with USPS. And they can't come up with answers.

I live in Louisiana so I'm much closer to TX than KY. But hey they decided to send the package to me via Little Rock, AR. Now figure out why a package out go all the way UP to AR to come all the way down to La. [​IMG]

    The gal that delivers mail to our home is always baked, maybe a reason? I find letters on the ground occasionally.

    Has anyone had better luck shipping Express instead of Priority? I'm wondering if it's worth the extra cost.

    What about UPS? Do they ship eggs or chicks? I find them far more reliable

    I've reached the point where, if I can, I avoid the USP(no Service) as much as I can. I even went so far as to get an ipad so I can get my magazines on time. Have spent the last 4 months trying to convince them that weekly periodicals are supposed to be delivered the week before the issue's date not the week after. The biggest problem lies at the distribution centers but if you complain the complaint goes to the local PO and there isn't much they can do about it.
