Talk about Zeus impregnating anything, Kurt Russell is Ego? Sylvester Stallone isn't too surprising since they got Glenn Close, that's a bar.

If USPS sits on it, USPS doesn't get paid for it. 

UPS drops it off LATE in the afternoon after the carriers are gone for the NEXT delivery day, thats the contract. If it sits longer than the next day.... USPS doesn't get paid by UPS.

(ZERO reason UPS couldn't drop them off before 7-8am.... UPS chooses to drop them off later in the day)

 

BTW: thats the same contract that FedEx has with the USPS as well. Both of them can get the packages to us earlier... but choose not to.

 

Same deal with Amazon, if the Amazon package doesn't make the 2 day prime date, USPS doesn't get paid by Amazon. The Amazon contract unlike UPS, get the shipments to USPS early so they go out *same day* they are received. 

Trust me... Amazon will complain if we leave notice on a package instead of deliver it. Dog attacking carrier, natural disaster, doesn't matter.. Amazon will bitch to us. Business closed scan or delivered is all they want to see, anything else... they stop payment.

We had a huge windstorm that ripped the roof off the USPS processing plant (down for 3 days) Amazon didn't care and refused to pay the shipping bill. It got straightened out later.. 

 

USPS/UPS/FedEx delivery experience differs by area, Where I am, FedEx still can't figure out where I live. I have to intercept packages online, or the idiot misdelivers it across town. UPS depends on the driver, 1 driver follows the instructions... another doesn't. USPS, my old house the carrier was awesome, new place... at least they know where I live.  

Old house I obviously preferred USPS, here... honestly UPS. I can intercept packages and grab them on my way home from work. When I do with FedEx, even though there is a FedEx drop location 3 miles from my house.... they will only let me choose the place 18 miles away. Frustrating as  Fuck

 

As far as packaging goes, i've had more boxes crushed by UPS than anyone. and no matter who delivers a bubble mailer... they have all arrived perfectly fine. 

FedEx has the record for most mis deliveries.

Who wrote these contracts? I guess some law written by lobbyists probably keeps the USPS hands tied regarding this UPS Mail Innovations BS. We could see something better if the USPS were a taxpayer funded government agency but nope.

Really recommend the Heart She Holler, it's a reminder of the bygone days of America.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Congress says Americans have been betrayed by their government. Gee I wonder why, lawmaker. http://thehill.com/h...-value-on-trump
