USPS shipping at least(we use UPS and Fed EX much less) varies greatly regionally. We shipped a package that was picked up on our rural route afternoon of the 16th headed to Parkersburg Iowa that passed through Sioux Falls SD and Des Moines Iowa on the 17th and was delivered today. However, according to my post mistress, the Chicago regional facility is just jammed and USPS is rerouting attempting to get past that facility. A package that we shipped on the 14th to Illinois passed through the Kansas City office where it normally would not go in order to bypass the Chicago facility and delivery is expected yet today or tomorrow. I suspect that if one has stuff that has to pass through several of these overloaded facilities it appears that everything is just at a total standstill. Then if we add in the packages that get tossed into the wrong bins because workers are rushing which results in the package heading off the wrong direction, it explains about all of the current mess.

The USPS had big problems long before Trump's administration.


Trump told the post office if they wanted any money that they would need to get rid of brennan and appoint dejoy. brennan was forced into retirement.

Brennan served her full term and on October 16, 2019, announced in a statement that she would be retiring upon fulfilling her five-year commitment as Postmaster General. However, on January 6, her retirement was delayed until a successor could be found.


Eh...wot?

“When I was appointed Postmaster General, I made a commitment to the Board of Governors that I would serve for five years and it has been my absolute honor to do so,” said Brennan.

Not only did Megan Brennan serve her full term, she served an additional two months until a suitable replacement could be found. She served three of of those years during Trump's administration. It doesn't sound like anybody got rid of her. she simply served her term and retired at that position.

Dejoy didn't become Postmaster General until six months ago.

Do you have any links to, or proof that Trump told the USPS to "appoint Dejoy or no more money?

Because your story is sounding a lot like the same old "Orange Man Bad crap we have been hearing for years now.

It doesn't add up.


Eh...wot?

I bought a pair of coil spring setters from Dave Sheldon as a gift for the neighbor kid. He shipped them around the 4th or 5th of December. According to the tracking number they've been in transit ever since.

Ordered some 2" fender washers from amazon prime. They were shipped and arrived in St. Louis on the 3rd of December. The shipping warehouse is 20 miles from my house. Still haven't seen them yet. lol

Way over their head! I have a pkg that was mailed in another state that had not moved in 12 days! I opened a “ case” and started getting updates. I now get updates “ new dates” that the pkg is on its way to a facility. Doesn’t say where the pkg is in transit. So someone has been scanning the pkg and it’s on its way supposedly.
