UPS is only a few dollars more anyway. I'll pay an extra $4 any day of the week to avoid dealing with the headache that is the USPS.

I've ordered from MidwayUSA (an hour drive from here) and it's taken weeks for the Priority Mail package to arrive. Priority... heh

Yes, it's a priority for them to provide substandard service.

I had a package shipped to me in early August from Texas. They lost/destroyed it in the Denver sort facility. I got an email TODAY, they are still looking for it. Yeah right. Fuck USPS. They denied my insurance request twice. Fuck them.

They finally picked up the 500 Priority Mail Boxes they left on my front porch a month age. Mad

Mailed a package in-state, dropped off at mail center in Boston going 7 miles away, sent out of state for processing and then to other end of state for distribution then back to where it was dropped off for delivery. Like everything in the Federal government extremely efficient.

Plymouth FL, just southeast of Our Little Airport, is a small out-of-the-way place, population less than 5,000.

The Plymouth Post Office (open most hours Wink) is the only post office that I have seen that has two mail-drop slots in the lobby, one labeled "Outgoing" and the other labeled "Local."
