    OK so i ordered a book this past Saturday, sunday night it was "In transit with Canada post " in MISSISSAUGA, ON. on the 19th it was "processed" yet again in Mississauga ON, then at 7pm on the 19th it was yet again "Processed", then on the 21st (just yesterday) in was "processed" In Hailfax, at 2:31 am just about 1 1/2 hours away from me i never got it yesterday, i know i wont get it today (holiday), i might get it tomorrow (not sure if mail goes tomorrow), might get it Monday (yet again holiday for some) paid for 2-4 day shipping [​IMG] ohh well...


    The term "Snail Mail" comes from Canada post where there motto is " You pay us a lot, and we put it on the back of a snail" (not really)

    Oh I hear you on that.......Grrrrrr Not the PO's fault but I had several orders in this past 2 weeks and received all of them except my new bras (genie bras) I went back to the website and it says its processed but also says it takes 4 to 6 to ship [​IMG] Grrrrring again....I mean really can't they get their shipping department to shape up? Most times I get stuff delivered faster by USPS than UPS or Fed ex.

    During the 10 years I had my business I learned to love the USPS, I dunno how they were in the old days but from 1997-2007 they were outstanding. I think maybe 2 things got lost out of thousands and thousands during that decade, there was a basic level of professionalism in all USPS employees, and even Book Rate got things across the US in a week. I used to spend an average of $800 a month with them and happily. Now, I mail a letter once every 2 months whether I need to or not lol. I feel bad for 'em. I hope they can keep afloat in this "new economy".
