I buy a lot of items from eBay, and I always keep track of the shipping if a tracking number is provided. I just purchased an item from a seller in Danville, IL. From there it went to the Champagne, IL. distribution center, then it was sent to the SAINT LOUIS MO. network distribution center. From there it went to Des Moins, IA. After it bounced around in Des Moins it was sent to Forest Park, IL., which is where it should have been sent to from Danville, IL. before being shipped to Wisconsin where I live. This isn't the first time this has happened. Anyone else catch these shipping mistakes from the USPS?

They are trying to put themselves out of business. I sent in a ticket registered mail for my mom and it went to Jax and disappeared
for a week put a trace they couldn't find it. said I should have sent it overnight. Why pay $26 for them to loose it. It showed up
a week late court accepted it.

I think that the people that sort the mail should know more about our country's geography, so they can pick the shortest route a package has to travel.

I've had similar issues myself, but for the most part I've had good luck with the Postal Service.

I'm pretty sure you are giving too much credit for humans causing the screwups!

They are so computerized and everything is scanned, must take a really inept human or a confused 'puter sometimes!

I haven't had any trouble with the USPS shipping packages around the country. I couldn't deliver a package, or letter, as cheap as they do. I'm curious about how the routes are assigned though. A computer can't shoulder all the blame. Humans build and program those computers after all.

I work for a mail contractor, post office to post office, and post office to DC, seen it where the dock at the DC is getting crowded, pretty soon some pallets or racks with packages get put on a trailer with some space, that trailer goes to where ever it is headed, then they ship it back, the dock got some needed room for a while, your package went on a joy ride.... that is why sometimes it takes a while to get delivered

That answers the question about the zig-zag routes packages make across the country.

Did the shipment arrive on time? On time delivery is more important then the route it takes.

Doubt it's computer related. I would say the package winds up in the wrong bin when given the heave ho. I would hardly call it trouble when the package takes the scenic route. Trouble is when you don't receive your package.

I had to call the PO just YESTERDAY..
My carrier wouldn't pick up my out-going mail..
He actually MOVED the outgoing mail over, to CRAM incoming mail in the box.!!!
So I called the local branch.. told them the problem.. they said, OH, the carriers don't work out of HERE, you have to call *****..
OH, OK.. & I HAD TO ASK for the telephone #.!!! Geez..
So I called down there.. I explained the problem about NOT picking up.. I didn't mention the "moving" of the mail..
She said, you know his name?? WHAT?!. Um, NO.. You know what he drives? Yes, a little white jeep..
OH, OK, hold on a minute..
Hello>?? ITS THE ACTUAL MAIL CARRIER!!!
I said, Dude, your not picking up my outgoing mail.. he wanted to know the address.. Like out of the 5000 houses he delivers to, he's gonna remember mine.??
I give it to him & he says, & I quote> "you didn't get any mail delivered yesterday"..
What does THAT have to do w/ ANYTHING??
Did you have your flag UP?? YES..
Well, I musta missed it.. {well no sh**}!!!
I said, how about tryin "alittle" harder next time.. cuz this isn't the 1st time its happened..
He says... & I quote.."yea, ok"..
& that was it.. I DID get my mail picked up yesterday tho.. Lol

Our mail carrier is a pretty good guy. If packages are too big for the mailbox he'll bring it down to the house. We can also tell when a substitute driver brings the mail, because we get some of our neighbors mail by mistake.
