The US Postal Service

Updated Jan 10, 2009: I sent the same package Priority and it was there in two days. Oh well.

I usually don’t have problems with the USPS, I certainly like my local branch of it a lot, but this is turning into a bad joke:

However, I am impressed that they work on Christmas Eve and Day, but then sat on it for eight more days over New Year’s, and still seem to be “processing” it. Weird. And, I mean, it’s just going to Virginia. For the past three weeks. Oh well.

    Hi there. I came across your blog while Googling “USPS Missent”. I sent out an important package on Jan 7 via Priority Mail with Delivery Confirmation to a neighboring state and discovered that it was “missent” on Jan 8. That was the last of the updates on thus far (today is Jan 14). I am getting a little anxious, as Priority Mail usually takes 2-3 days (sometimes 4 at the latest) to get to its destination. May I ask if you used Priority Mail? Also, did the package return to you or did it eventually make it to the addressee on its own? Please shoot me a quick email if you have time at Thanks!
