    Default Dadgum USPS

    so, i busted my new tru ball sweet spot ultra III. sent it back to tru ball via usps PRIORITY and was told it would arrive the friday before christmas. tru ball and i are still waiting.

    wonder why they did away with the pony express...hmmm.

    no wonder they're losing business and going in the hole.

    wonder how they define PRIORITY.

    i did send it to them last year, after all.

    I usually pay a little extra and use UPS. At least their tracking system is pretty close to accurate.

    I try and use USPS as little as possible for jsut that reason. They suck big time. I ordered some stuff from an online retailer and they shipped it USPS priority and it got here in 3 days. the next week when I ordered it took 6 days from the same place. Explain that to me!

    Good answer. People seem to forget that USPS is a government entity which means that if they get it right it's most likely purely by accident.

    The cost. In 1860, at the begining of the Pony Express, it cost $5.00 per 1/2 ounce to send mail, thats about $120 in today's money. Yikes!

    i have real bad luck with the USPS delivering my incoming bills ahead of schedule.... otherwise i do have good luck with them on envelope size pkgs, just not much luck with bigger items.
