I believe in giving credit where credit is due and if I’m going to complain about bad service, I need to comment positively about good service. I’ve always said that I can’t even comprehend how the post office does what it does (in a good way) but, when things go crazy and we’re not used to it, it is frustrating.
I understand Covid and worker shortages due to illness. I understand that people are doing mail order these days. It’s still had to wait on a priority mail package that was scanned and then not scanned again for six days. It’s had to see a package that, among other things, has one skein of Licorice Red floss in it .. and I’m waiting on that floss . . and it’s sitting at the KC distribution center for days and days.
But this week, the post office seems to be doing everything right.
This is the kind of thing that baffles me – left KC at 7:46 p.m. yesterday. Arrived this morning at 1:19 a.m. in Springfield, MO. Departed 26 minutes later and I’ll get it today or . . someone in my neigborhood will get it. 🙂
When you think of all the packages that do get delivered, I almost feel bad that I complained about not getting packages til way later than they should have arrive. I did eventually get them and even with the cost of shipping steadily increasing it’s still a pretty good bargain.
I’m still having problems with packages getting delivered to other locations but I can’t even complain about that because Travis at our local post office is so darned nice when I call and every single time I’ve called, and it’s been at least six times over the last few months, he’s made a few calls and within minutes, either the carrier or someone else has retrieved my package and brought it to me.
