    I'm just going to take all my culls to the PO! They sure have a way of making wanted birds dissappear, why not the ones we don't want? [​IMG]

    Now, there's a thought! The thing is that I'd rather just cull and get it over with rather than torture the poor things to death.

    Personally, I think the PO does a great job. It is unfortunate that you have had such a bad experience, but remember they do service millions, that are totally satisfied. I can not think of another servive that accomplishes what the USPS does...for all o us!

    Quote:I haven't had birds lost, though I did just get a chicken ornament I ordered for Ken for Christmas. Last week. Apparently it had been sitting on the shelf in the back and everyone thought everyone else told us and they never sent it back!

    I never have a problem with stuff coming from the mid-west or west coast. It's just the east coast- anything that goes through Atlanta just falls off the radar.

    Don't they run the receiving zip code before they ship your package out? If they can't get it to me in the "guaranteed time" then why do they take the money for it?

    I started having my stuff shipped to my work address before we moved, simply because even FedEx and UPS left my packages at the post office which closes at 5 pm. I don't leave work til 5 pm. And chicks can't wait there until Saturday.

    Yep, that's why I never mail anything that is perishable or super fragile through Atlanta. And you may not know this, but Atlanta is so overworked that they are sending stuff to the bottom of the state instead, forgot which city. That may be part of the problem.​
