Honestly, I can see why the USPS is doing so darn poorly, losing money, and having to cut costs to make ends meet. It just seems to me time and time again that they are working harder not smarter with item shipping. I personally just checked the 'tracking' (well, not really tracking) on an item shipped with delivery confirmation, as it 'should' have been delivered earlier in the week. Not a big deal that it hasn't, it isn't time sensitive and it is the holiday season so delivery is slower anyway. But the package is in Wyoming for some reason. It was shipped from New York state. So for some reason the package overshot the midwest and ended up muuuch farther away than necessary. How?! Seriously, I can't think of any logical reason the USPS would have for diverting the package from NY bound to MI to a distribution center in WY. So now it has to travel back eastward to (hopefully) get delivered here, eventually. And I know this isn't unusual at all. I am sure that almost everyone has a story on how the USPS screwed up their service in such a way that it makes you wonder how they managed to last this long.
