Well, the package did arrive today. As promised it was shipped on the 18th. My faith in the post office has been destroyed. When I have issues with UPS or Fedex I just chalk it up to that's the kind of business they run.
Up until this issue I have been impressed with the post office.
Now I am disappointed in USPS.
I guess I was a little quick to judge someone, anyone else notice a trend. Maybe I shouldn't be so damn impatient.
