New USPS Rant

Not just a bump.
 
I ordered a part for a project I'm working on, the manufacturer refuses to use anyone else for shipping but USPS.
 
This is the tracking page, transcribed to Word because I'm brain lazy and don't do screenshots...
 
Obviously (as per your benevolent postal service) the order is from the bottom up...

Kindly note that Monday, June 15 is still the "estimated" delivery date. I did contact the manufacturer about the delay, and no, there ain't no Wuhan Flu gonna divert a parcel from it's course to Minnesota all the way out to Hawaii.
 
They charge a LOT of money for this level of ineptitude, why hasn't my package arrived in Moscow or Sydney by now? And just how many times must it depart from Honolulu to actually be departed? Hell, it only arrived there once...
 
Funniest thing is I paid less than $20 for my entire order, "free" shipping...
 
 
So am I looking at this right? Your package is from Arkansas but it’s going to Hawaii before arriving at Minnesota?
Heck it was in Wisconsin that’s like next door to ya.

In Transit to Next Facility
Your package is moving within the USPS network and is on track to be delivered to its final destination. It is currently in transit to the next facility.

Hey, I checked order status again this morning--last scan was--wait for it--you can't make this up, boys & girls--
 
AGAIN departing the Honolulu facility at 10:56 pm....
 
I think someone defunded and then depopulated the postal service.
 
Good thing it's "free" shipping.
Oak Creek, WI sounds like a well run machine!
And Honolulu, HI keeps trying to get rid of it.  It'll be interesting to see where it goes next.
Too funny!
 
Had to go to the dentist today and on the way home I heard an advertisement on the radio about the post office going broke and wanting us to contact our representatives asking them to "save" the post office!  
Of course the first thing I thought of was this thread.
 
We have noticed Amazon deliveries delayed when handed off to USPS but on the news this morning seems UPS is also affected...
 
Amazon Packages Held Up For Weeks At Cape Cod UPS Facility

People are calling Cape Cod the “Bermuda Triangle” for package deliveries and wondering where their Amazon and UPS shipments went. Since the coronavirus pandemic started, people have ordered online like never before. But even now, some people are waiting weeks for their deliveries.

For Roland Pourier, it was foot soap. “You just feel like you’re being played, that’s all,” Pourier said.


For Laurel Galvin, a bubble maker for her nursery school. “I couldn’t figure out why,” Galvin said. “It’s supposed to be on the truck but it’s not there.”

I used pirateship and can only highly recommend now! Thank you sinensis!!!!!!
 
NO fees and you use their commercial rate. Printing labels is EASY they fit on 50% of the page and I have half page labels... (eBay sucks for printing them)...
 
Paid $7.75 for flat rate padded instead of $8.40.
 
bam!
