I have about had it with the postal service, I will never ship though them nor will I purchase anything from a buisness that ships by USPS ever again.

First off this isn't about all usps employees, I really like my normal mail man. He is so nice and has never lost my mail or delivered to the wrong address and he gives everyone christmas cards. I always get him a small christmas and Bday gift but he retired. Seems like the new generation of usps workers just don't give a crap about their job or peoples packages.

I can't count how many times the usps delivered my package to the wrong address, damaged my stuff, lost my mail, or left my package out in the rain when I left a note saying to put it in the big rubbermaid chest next to the door. I also don't understand why they charge so much for express when it never gets there when they say it will. They have the rudest customer service that knows absolutley nothing.

So I ordered a Sony Viaio laptop a week ago. It shipped out of Virginia on Oct 15th and when I tracked it from usps website it said delivery is on the 18th. Next day I tracked it said its still in Virgina but the delivery changed to the 19th. Everyday the delivery date changed to a later date, as of now its the 24th. The best part is I'm having it shipped to New Jersey and the package made it to the sorting facility in Maryland but instead of it continuing north to NJ it went to North Carolina, which is further south then from where it was originally shipped..

I never had a problem with UPS or FedEx. I once got a delivery from ups at 11pm so I would get my package on time.

This is about the 14th time they had my packages hopping all over the country. One time I orderd 2 EO-tech sights costing a total over $1200. from florida and having it shipped to mississippi and it ended up in washington state then to new york, it finally arrived broken and 2 weeks late. Trying to get my refund for 2day air delivery and for the damage (I had it insured through the usps) was almost impossible, I had to get my friends mother who was a attorney to threaten with a lawsuit.

So knowing how shady the usps is I made sure I recorded the calls I made to the customer service and without fail they were not able to give any answers and when I said that I want a refund since I paid for Express shipping they said I didn't pay for express shipping a paid for parcel post which is the cheapest and slowest. I told him that was BS I have the reciept in my email it says 2-3 day shipping $36.89 and parcel post would only cost about 8 or 9 bucks. I told him he is wrong and you guys are always trying to scam people out of their money and its no wonder why you guys are going bankrupt. That's when he lost his cool and went off on me.

A while ago I kind off made buddies with our state senator and anytime I had a problem I would give him a call, I told him about my problems wth the usps before and my total dislike for them. He sad any more problems like that get proof and give me call or email me. So that's what I did, I sent him all the emails from them, the recorded phone calls saying I didn't pay express and my tracking number so he can see how horrible they do their job.

Sorry for that long rant, I'm just so annoyed. Just about everyone I've talked to has gone through similar experiances the usps. Like I said I'm not saying all the postal employees are bad, and I know most of the work stressful jobs, all I'm asking is just for them to do what they say they wil do and don't lie to me or tell me I'm llying.

The customer service guy lost HIS cool? Wow, he will most likely lose his job. That's complete BS considering all that happened, I haven't had many issues with USPS, I mean sure, there's the occasional mistake, but generally, its not so bad of a service, i've never heard about them lying like that though telling you, that you bought something else just to save their own money. Hopefully your buddy can do something about this. God help us all if this starts happening to everybody.

What the hell? And it says on your receipt you payed for Express? This could be another one of their mix ups. Or they took your money and gave you regular. That makes absolutely no sense to me though.

All of the complaints you just made, i have had. But not just with usps. Also ups. And fedex. However........DHL was the best. Theyre out of business now.

Infact ups is worse than usps. Oh yeah, i have a package in a ups truck right now...hahaha

By the way, get a tour of a package sorting facility. Youll understand more about why they screw up in some aspects. If you apply for a job at ups as a packagr handler, they just pull a group in, tell you about the job, give you a tour of the facility, and you can either walk out or do a little interview.

Oh, heres a fun one. They never delivered a package i orderrd. Tracking said it was undeliverable. Address was correct. I went to the post office, they insisted ***** drive was a rural route and that i live on south ****** drive. But if i put south ****** drive, they deliver it to the wrong address more often. Also, online address validators insist my number doesnt exist on north or south **** drive.
