In my neigborhood, USPS has delivered as late as 9pm. Its crazy
O dear That doesn't bode well for the package I'm expecting via USPS.
Two actually. One from you and one from Stewmac...The latter of which I probably shouldn't have ordered anyway, given the fact that I probably have to pay VAT and an as yet unknown import levy. So I'll likely end up paying about the same as I would have, had I ordered from Thomann.
Anyway, the tracking info had those packages 'currently in transit to the next facility' ever since the 20th (when they arrived in their Chicago Intl. distubution center). Just now I read they have been 'processed' there...
6 days worth of 'processing'...
I guess the automated sorting systems have the weekend off.
O well.. patience... patience...
All shipping is clogged up because of Valentines day....I have 12 girlfriends now because of Covid.
Most live in S.America ,Romania and two in Texas.
Then there's the gallows with used rope
THE NEW PHONE BOOK IS HERE!!!! THE NEW PHONE BOOK IS HERE!!!!
Expected delivery by 9PM.
lol...It ain't as safe as my front porch.....
It's that whole upper midwest area. It's like a black hole or something. Swallow up stuff with no trace and then just spits it out randomly in no apparent order.
They told Lonn on one package that they were still backed up from "Thanksgiving"!?
Unless you live out in the boonies and sit on your porch on delivery day...I'll bet on the lockers!
It's the potlucks...they get distracted and lose track of time. It's shameful what a little three bean casserole can do to a man in a van.
I do and I do. And I live with a UPS stalker. She's got some program/app that lets her track the actual truck by GPS is real time.
Well, I suppose if you filed forwarding information with UPS / FEDEX like you do with USPS, they might have a shot at it. FWIW, they can sometimes re-route packages in transit (or could), but they don't like to move things twice. They ARE commercial businesses in it for profit.
I don't know current regulations, but they used to have a policy of "it must be delivered if it goes on the truck" (pending an actual delivery issue, like "sig needed"). I don't know if they still endorse that. They had cut off all overtime for a while but I understand they are doing it again.
Well, I must say that the last couple things I oerdered for some guitar work showed up rather very quickly. Both within a week of making the purchase. Granted they both were small packages. One being 2 Push/Push pots and the other, two dpdt flat bat switches. But hey, I see this as a win considering I was expecting to wait almost a month.
I have that as well, you can see the little brown truck working its way around the neighborhood, my problem is getting them to get it to me. I think Amazon provides the same service.
I find it's kinda like wearing a watch. Useless for anything except creating unnecessary stress. It is whatever time it is whether I know it or not, and it'll be here when it gets here.
just sittin' here waitin' for a package
So this one is a ups access point gripe:
I dropped off a package at my local CVS to be shipped to someone who bought pickups from me. Check the tracking and it says ready to be picked up at the same place i dropped it off. They never shipped it. So i go and they try to fix it and totally screw it up. Tracking says delivered. So i had to go back again, pick it up and issue the guy a refund. So now im out $20 for shipping. AND IT DIDNT EVEN SHIP. It just sat at the access point for two days
People are STILL waiting for packages from USPS, and some believe they can be trusted for much more important events.
I need to get my death certificate in the mail now.
I ordered some stuff two states away and they only ship via USPS. Ordered on January 4th and it shipped same day. The order did not arrive until January 24th. Took 20 days to move two states. I also bought a blu-ray from Japan on January 21st and the only shipping option was DHL. It showed up today. Only six days to get across the pacific ocean.
