    USPS stands for Unsatisfying, Screwed-up Postal Service. So sorry! Want me to do a "finding spell" for you?[​IMG]

    Quote:to join the USPSDA, simply mail a small, fragile item, wrapped properly, addressed correctly with the appropriate postage.

    ship.

    wait 6-10 weeks beyond the guaranteed ship time.

    receive package completely obliterated back at your address, with a chipper note stating the following:

    Dear Valued USPS Customer,
    This package/envelope was damaged during delivery. We're so sorry. Please try again when we raise the postage rates. (which should be every other week from now on, so you have lots of opportunity.)
    We will try to do a better job next time, that is why we need to raise the rates. It's really hard to move things gently and envelopes can give you paper cuts!
    Thank you again and we know you'll stick with us, because there are only a few options anyway.
    Have a great day and enjoy resending your package!
    Sincerely,
    The USPS


    then you are official!

    (this is just a joke, no offense to USPS employees! my mail carrier and local post rock!)

    I can't believe they could loose all those noisy little chicks! Its not like they stay quiet through the trip to their new home. Can you speak with anyone at USPS about the lack of care they take for live animals and other things alot of the time as well? I would be chewing someone out up one side and down the other! :thun
