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.

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.

Our FedEx and UPS guys know to ask us if a Jewish holiday is coming up to see if we'll be open. The USPS people never ask, I'm guessing they just assume its an excuse for them not to do their jobs. Gotta love Federal employees.

Ordered a pair of glasses. Checked tracking next day. Surprisingly it said "delivered". Really wasn't even shipped yet. For some reason the mobile version always gives a diff update than desktop version???

I hope it gets delivered. But don't be surprised if that's as far as the package will be going.

Bought iphone on ebay and usps shows delivered and signed by me but there was no attempt!
Started a case already but still hoping it will show up. Maybe driver didn't wanna miss delivery time so marked as delivered?
If not this will be problematic since it shows signed by me. Though it's just a printed name and no signature. Not cool

I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

"signed" at 1015am yesterday but they never come at that time. Usually at 330pm. Maybe it will show tomorrow since the snow could have been the culprit. Hope. Guy only put 100 insurance on a 600 dollar phone.
