    Usps = Uspos

    The post office just left a $300 camera I ordered on the wrong doorstep. The tracking said it had been delivered, and I looked all around my house and couldn't find it. I look across the street... there it is at my neighbor's house. Now everyone is going to think I'm the weird guy that steals people's mail. Thanks for the great service, morons

    It's happened to me.

    My mail man really sucks actually.

    There's mail that's sat in my mail box for 3 days now. Day 1, he apparently didn't see it, and left it there. Day 2, I didn't get mail, so god forbid he come over and see why my little red flag is up.

    And now day 3....didn't take it...again.

    Moron.

    Whine whine whine. Just one little mistake, Virgin, and you want to crucify the poor guy.

    Jmur, that is ridiculous and you should go buy a mailman hating dog.
    And Shepards we shall be,
    for thee, My Lord, for thee,
    Power hath descended forth from Thy hand,
    That our feet may swiftly carry out Thy Command.
    So we shall flow a river forth to Thee
    And teeming with souls will it ever be.

    Conalabu, funny you should mention a mailman hating dog.....
    Growing up I had this amazing dog....swore she was part human and that she understood whatever you told her although she did not always listen.
    When it was time to get college acceptance letters everyday she and I would walk to the mailbox to see if the college of my choice had sent me a letter yet. Each day that it was not in the mailbox I would say, "Maggie, we HATE the mailman!" She would make a little growl in her throat. Somehow it stayed with her for her entire life. Anytime the mailman would have to knock on the door she would go nuts! Literally until her dying day she hated him. While we were waiting for the Vet to come to put her to sleep the mailman came to the door, with her last ounce of strength she stood up and barked and growled.
    Anyone need their dog trained?

    I sent my mom a package via UPS. It was dropped off at house with the same house number, but in a different town. At least that is what the tracking said. Good thing I insured it, because it was never located.

    I had a package delivered and signed for by someone at the wrong address. It was done by FedEx Ground.

    It took a week of phone calls to convince them I did not sign for the package, nor did I receive the package.

    Who mails a camera without insurance? I had a $1000 camera mailed to me in Iraq. I had to jump through some hoops to get it, but I got it safely.

    Our mailman is a chain smoker. We get our mail and it smells horrible like raunchy cigarette smoke. Gotta love the rules that aren't followed.

    Its not just the USPS. 2 years ago we got new sidearms. We were given the chance to buy our old Beretta 92 for like $225. We did the deal through one of our deputies who has his FFL. The UPS guy left 22 pistols each with 3, 15 round magazines on his front porch.

    The old sheriff was attending an awards dinner when a lady commented
    on his wearing his sidearm. "Sheriff, I see you have your pistol. Are you
    expecting trouble?" "No Ma'am. If I were expecting trouble, I would have
    brought my rifle."

    You can't ever do anything the first time.

    We are the thin blue line

    And no you can't have any.

    This was actually the third time my mail has gone to that person, fortunately she's not into keeping stuff that isn't hers. Reading the entire address shouldn't be that difficult.

    I personally use DHL for shipping things , they are usually cheaper and faster . I paid several times for regular shipping and it wound up there the next day saving me big bucks of doing the overnight , next day thing .

    Fedex is my personal favorite - when I order stuff from newegg it's there the next day sometimes. Amazing service.
