Hey, I got my Christmas Grice ad in the mail yesterday! Holiday hours! Prices good through January 17... Those big mailings ain't cheap. I hate to think of all the money wasted by businesses because of the USPS delays.

I'm still trying to figure out why ammo manufactures are spending money on advertising. Also, received a Natchez catolog yesterday and my guess is half what's in the catalog is sold out...a waste of even printing it.

I was talking to a buddy on Tuesday of this week, the 19th, he said his son and his family in North Carolina just received their Christmas package, which was mailed on December 10th. The package was mailed from Virginia.🥴

Biden votes are probably still rolling in...

Still waiting on a set of rings that disappeared in a sorting facility 12/9 and has not been updated since. The seller offered me a refund, but it's not his fault. I mailed a check to a member here on Christmas (dropped it in the corner box in town) that never showed up. I had to send a MO to him Certified mail. USPS SUCKS!

I’m on their mailing list and haven’t received this yet, and they are only 2 hours away.

An amazon package we ordered went from NC (45 minutes from me) to Memphis TN (drove right past me) then to Atlanta. Some nonsense about receiver having a delivery agreement or something in the tracking notes. Last package that went through Atlanta took 2 weeks to move out of there. I expect it to go to NY or some crap next. My kid just needs his book to write his book report.

On the other side something I bought off a forum went from Washington state to me in 4 days including the 3 day weekend. I could have waited a month on it, I don't need it until this summer.. lol

My parents live right near the mail mailing depot for the post office north of Atlanta .If you saw what was working there you would know why your packages are gone .We just had a 19 year old black mail seal a million dollars from the Kroger store he worked at .He made fake reciets and put the money on visa cards .He bought shoes guns and two cars .He wrecked one of the cars .He was out of jail the first day on a $11,000 bond .They are protected golden eagles now and can so anything they want to .

I've had pretty good luck with USPS lately. I sent a rifle from NY to Milwaukee on Tuesday and it's out for delivery this morning. I have another package coming today from Midway a day early.
My wife ordered something for our DIL to-be and it sat in our local PO from 12/19 until a couple weeks ago when it was delivered.
I did have one head scratcher a few years ago. I sent a set of rings from NY to AL. They went to the destination city, turned around and came all the way back to my local PO, then went all the way back to the buyer again. Couldn't blame that one on the covid!

I mailed a USPS flat rate box to a member in Texas, I'm in Kansas. It went through a distribution center in Des Moines, and now shows hitting a distribution center in Maryland! That's the damnedest route I've ever seen from Kansas to Texas......

Yesterday, the package containing my son's Christmas present for his Mom arrived. It was shipped on December 03. Like I told my wife, the box was in the best shape I've ever seen a flat rate box in. Odd for a box that's been "missing" for more than a month!

I ship about 30 packages a week on USPS and things are definitely getting back, close, to normal. Still a few exceptions; but nothing like what was happening in December. The oldest , outstanding, package is at 4 business days. And, these are all First Class. Many First Class have been delivered in 2-3 days in the last 2 weeks.
We have the same carrier for the last 15 years and she would usually come by about 2 PM; during the crush it was 6PM. So; they were putting in some hours.
