they had news stories about how USPS had rented a warehouse in Oak Creek WI just south of Milwaukee the primary processing hub for WI and some packages were 3 weeks old at Christmas. I am hoping if things slow down with demand they will catch up by 2-1-2021


America only has one issue, we have a Responsibility crisis and everything else stems from it.

I ordered a set of grips for my .44 magnum on Monday from hogue. I got home a few minutes ago and it was in my mailbox! I almost fell over. USPS from California to TN. It was mailed priority. I think I better go get a lottery ticket today.

Yesterday I received two pair of wool socks I ordered on December 4, 2020.

It only took USPS a little over a month to deliver them. They're just a bunch of regular speed demons. LOL

Fast enough to elect a president! Read all the previous replies and then think about it! Skipping the voter verification part is only half the problem. Not trying to steal post. Ordered daughter a book from Ebay that shipped November 27 with a estimate arrival of December 3. Shipped with tracking within few days of ordering. Got it yesterday.

They do good until they drop your small packages off at the USPS .

I think what's happening is they've just located the parts for the disassembled sorting machines that the Postmaster General had removed from the POs', and then taken apart.

If anybody out there has a schematic for these sorting machines, PLEASE CONTACT your local post office.
I guess the lesson here is, you can't have something both ways!

Normally we get a pile of junk mail daily. Lately it appears we get our mail delivered every other day based on my mailbox being empty every other day. Through rain, snow, or dark of night, the postman will do what is convenient on any particular day, and if I complain it's just likely to get worse.

Not a package but I mailed my oldest son in Richmond VA a Christmas card with a check in it on Dec. 16th and he still has not received it. Don't know what to think or course of action at this point other than to just wait?


I'm just happy to be here! Today I'm as young as I'll ever be and and older than I've ever been before!

I sent some paperwork 3 day with signature required from Indiana to Iowa and it's been 9 days and it says in transit. What a joke, if they loose it I am going to be really (This word is unacceptable on Trapperman)!!

Sent from northern NY 3 identical packages express mail last Saturday. 2 went to Michigan and 1 to California. The package sent to CA arrived today, the 2 packages sent to MI have not yet been delivered. Go figure ?? The package sent clear across the country arrived before the 2 sent 1/3 the way across the country ?

For me UPS is the slowest. I haven't had any issues with USPS.
