Priority Mail "Tracking", Delivery/signature Confirmation
I spend about 6 months in Florida and 6 months in Massachusetts each year. I've always had problems getting packages from FL to MA; they usually disappear in Jacksonville. This time it actually made it to NJ before it was sucked into the void. It's been 7 days since it was sent "priority", 5 days since it supposedly left NJ. I could've walked to NJ and back by now.
I called the 800 number to initiate a search and the CSR dyslexic'd my P.O. box number. The receiving P.O.called me and filled me in on that but do ya think she would/could correct the mistake???
What really chaps my a** about this incident is that my friend was intending to send it express and the CSR at the P.O. talked her out of it and told her express is a waste. I have tried and tried to tell people to never never never send anything slightly important by any other way than express.
"Track and Confirm" is so incredibly misleading that the USPS should be forced to drop the "track" part. Bottom line -do NOT send anything even slightly important or time sensitive through the USPS. If you have no alternative, use express mail only and DO NOT let any CSR talk you out of using express. I am hoping against hope that this package appears by tomorrow but I really think it's gone to the place socks disappear to, never to be seen again. Will update if it is delivered
my package arrived at 2pm after 7 days, the last 5 days floating around vermont because somewhere along the way the zip code was "keyed in wrong." mmm hmm....
it was crushed pretty bad but, due to decent packing, the contents were ok.
my son sent me an express envelope from the same location yesterday at 3pm. it arrived by 10a.m. today, 4 hours before the lost package.
