I sent a package to Waco at the first of the year via USPS and it took over 2 weeks to get there.
I live in the Waco area (our mail is now sorted in DFW), we do not experience any of the issues I seen posted on the Aggleland board over the past year or two. I actually prefer the postal service over UPS for delivering packages to me. The post office is usually to my house by 5 pm, I've had UPS deliveries after 10 pm.

I never experienced issues when I lived in DFW. If I did, it was either minor or got resolved, but I just don't rememberanything. But we had individual mailboxes where you could get to know the carrier. Now, with the community ones, it's difficult.

I had some supplements that sat in Houston for 12 days before finally getting them. Ridiculous

My health insurance carrier keeps pushing me to use Express Scripts if I need any kind of prescription.

No way.

Someone in the NW Houston or Fort Bend USPS centers has probably pulled enough drugs out of packages that they have a pharmacy in their house are selling them on the side for cash.

Today's USPS nonsense.
Everything was open. Nothing was blocked.
It was raining.
UPS delivered a huge box in the rain. Placed it where it wouldn't get wet.

Meanwhile, my front sidewalk is underwater and my carrier brought 3 packages to my door.

I'd rather deal with Walgreens inadequacies than Express Scripts. There were a couple prescriptions I didn't get for one reason or another. Had to wait 10 days to get it shipped again. Then that counted as one of my refills.

How do they expect 23 people and 10 managers to help if it is really "networking" problems?

What a cluster.....

They should fire the head of the postal service and the managers of that site. Bring in the National Guard to get the mail processed. There is no excuse for that. None.

Within the past hour I received an update from yesterday morning.

I guess If I paid for ground service, I might get it for next Christmas?

SHIPMENT ACTIVITY
MOST RECENT
JANUARY 20 - 11:41AMArrived at FacilityHouston, TX

They now are saying Monday delivery.

I guess if I get it tomorrow, paying extra for 3 day delivery and getting it delivered in seven days is par for the course.

As the Zen Master said, "We'll see."

Well, I am in my third day of "Out for Delivery." Nine days so far for paying for 3 day delivery.

I'm surprised they didn't bring in 5 senior managers to manage the 10 managers.

I filled out the "missing mail" claim and got a call from my local PO explaining what had been explained to me when I was there last week so that doesn't help any.

You'll be shocked to hear that I haven't been contacted by Michael McCauls office or the USPS OIG complaint hotline.

I had a clothing order that got split into two shipments. One came from California and showed up last week without issue. The other shipped from IL, departed Dallas last week and has just been "in transit to the next facility" since.

My favorite thing is when it says the package "arrived at a carrier facility." Doesn't say which one… could be Mongolia, could be your backyard.

Package of meds left Carrollton on 1.5 stopped in Austin 1.11 until 1.24 now in Bryan on 11.25. Lets see 192 miles direct in 20 days avg 9.6 miles a day. You know you can walk here quicker than that. Maybe by horse back in 7days.

Finally got my package....five days out for delivery. Paid for 3 day deliver and it took 11 days I guess I should be happy it's not still in that cluster in Houston?

I mailed a package (USPS Priority) from Wellborn on Jan 11 with expected delivery to Richmond, TX on Jan 13. It finally showed up yesterday (Jan 25). Two weeks later…

I was sending my son's baseball glove in to have some work done on it. Nothing like delaying the expected turnaround by 12 days.

I finally got my package today that was shipped Jan 4, but not without a refusal to deliver yesterday because no one was home to sign for it. I had to pick up from the post office today.
