    I really should have considered alternatives
    USPS.com Tracking Results, 9405508205496045444660

    Wondering what other experiences may have been working with USPS... I contacted them but all that resulted was the below log - they looked into it for two days but didn't resolve it as it's now February 25th. I feel bad since it must be very rough being a postal worker right now and personally, I want to support our post office by using them but as someone who needs to make money sometimes through my small eBay store I need something that my buyers won't become irate over (ugh) perhaps they have a donation fund (the USPS) ? (EDIT: I kid a little there since I'd assume our tax payer dollars are what contribute alongside congressional / gov budget(s)... ? )

    Based on both personal and professional experiences, I'd rank these as follows:

    1. FedEx
    2. USPS
    3. Hurling your package out of a window in the general direction of it's destination
    4. UPS

    Very recently I had FedEx hold up a package in Chicago for an entire week. Took 3 weeks for something to go across the country.

    I wish that someone invents the Star Trek Transporter - the machine that beams stuff from one place to other.

    There is another machine in Star Trek TV shows and movies: Someone comes up to a machine in the wall and asks for food and drink. The machine generates the food on a dish and drink in a cup.

    President Trump was right, I don't care what you say. FedEX and UPS are ripping off the US Postal service. The majority of my packages in the last couple years were handed off to the USPS and FEDEX/UPS didn't pay a dime for that delivery. But I still got charged for it.
