Another USPS adventure...

Post by vamnuke » Tue Jan 26, 2021 12:05 am

Bought a raw coin on eBay, fingers crossed it's gonna be a goodie. Anyway arrived at regional PO on the 23rd; usually a pass thru to the the local PO here; sod I thought I'd have a shot at getting Sat. Nope. Not in today's mail either; so; check the tracking and see it's been sent to a different local PO 80 miles away. So, tomorrow, it'll go back to regional PO then lucky to get Wed or Thurs. Things have turned south in mail delivery since Thanksgiving...

I had one do the same thing except it was scanned as delivered on the same day it landed in a similar zip code 50 miles away. It did deliver about a week later, Lots of bitten nails on the floor.....

I sent a shipment to my daughter in Pasadena, CA, on the 16th. By the 18th, it made it to Arcadia, CA, 5 or so miles away from her. It's still there. Other stuff I sent her at the same time arrived within 3 days.

I sent a package to somewhere in Missouri on the 19th. It made it to Kansas City on the 21st. As of this morning it is still there. My eBay buyer filed a concerned report.
When in doubt... don't.

I had a package shipped to me in late Dec.
It took almost a month to be received.

Jason and Rabbit - the solution for you two appears obvious. Swap residences and your stuff will be much closer your houses!
