The USPS keeps raising rates, business keeps decreasing, and they wonder what is going wrong. The latest fiasco I've had with them is on an item I bought on ebay on Novemer1, 2017 from a seller in Oregon. I promptly paid right after winning the auction and item wasn't shipped thru the USPS until November 7, 2017. On November 9 it arrived in the Denver Distribution Center and left on November 10 for my town. Nope. As of 11/11/17 still no package. The tracking numbers show it left Denver and went to, ready, Pittsburgh, PA! I'm in Michigan!!! So now it is still setting in the distribution center in PITTSBURGH, PA!!! Un friggin-believable...It may have been here by now if I went with Pony Express delivery. I'm a big supporter of the US gubment getting out of the mail service and spending those $$$ on better things. Oh, by the way, I'm still waiting for three packages the USPS has 'lost' in the past year. One was sent by me to a friend a few towns away, the other two were ebay items that never arrived. All declared MIA and they've now closed the files on them now.
