my goodness
How is that even possible
It is called "loop mail" I kid you not. Someone manually caught it or it would still be in the loop.

Ever send something overnight guaranteed and tried to get a refund when it was delivered a few days later? Good luck.

Apparently over Halloween weekend USPS lost tones of packages and only found them a week later

I wonder how much money & manpower that package ends up costing the postal service.

Packages going through NJ have 50% of stalling or getting lost.
Kearney NJ is a black hole!
I ship a lot and the ones that get lost or take forever to deliver are the $$ ones.

I'm not sure which is worse, them sending packages across the country when they only need to go across the city/state or the fact that USPS regularly claims to have attempted delivery to my office and my office was "closed" when I was sitting 5 feet from the door, on a day when the post office doesn't even do delivery (Veterans Day).

Lol. They assumed you were out.
If you don't care why would you comment?

The only explanation I can think of is that when it says business closed they meant their business.

1 trick I learned, 75% of packages that go out from a location on Saturday, get delivered on Monday.
Shipping from CA to NY, FL etc.

I have seen a few times that FedEx doesn't even try to deliver to my office on yom tov. How do they know?
