I Fucking Hate the USPS

Dude, I am SO fucking pissed.
I hate the US Post Office.
I hate them.
I hate their lousy service.
I hate EXPRESS that is not.
I hate that I went out to mail a 1940's wedding dress on Thursday during a fucking tornado warning (sirens going off and everything...ok, I did have other things to do and I did check the radar before leaving, but STILL I drove out whilst the sirens were wailing with my hysterical teen telling me I was a horrible mother to take him out in that weather....as if I would actually put him in danger. Jesus, what kind of mother does he think I am?) to a sweet customer who is getting married next Thursday.
I wanted
to make sure I got to the PO before the cut off time so said customer would get the dress today (Friday) before 12 noon.
I hate that even though there really was NO tornado (or anywhere in Little Rock) my fucking post office was unable to get my EXPRESS package across town (a 30 min drive max) to the express processing center (even though I got MY package to MY post office 4 hours before the cut off time) in time for it to even make it out of Arkansas last night.
Seriously?
oy, and vey. tm.copyright kim

No dress for that wonderful customer, who is being sweet as can be to me, today.
She will get it tomorrow, but still, my bitter little heart is overflowing with bitter, bitter hate right now.
and feeling VERY stabby.

So no more EXPRESS for me.
Only UPS or FEDEX for overnight stuff.

I'm going to need a slew of LOLcats to deal with this.


Nope, still bitter.

Never us USPS when it positively, absolutely has to be there. Never. The difference is that the UPS and Fedex need to make a profit, therefore, they are motivated to provide good service.

I have a big problem with services in Arkansas that can't seem to get it together in the "bad weather". I am in Northwest Arkansas, so it may be different. This is the only place I have ever been that closes school for RAIN.

I'm waiting on a package from Amazon. I was hoping to get my books before Thanksgiving so I have something to read during the holiday. Estimated shipping date: November 21st. Tracking says it left BELL, CA on November 20th, on it's way to my location in Los Angeles, CA. It is now November 25th, and what does the tracking info state? It left BELL, CA on November 20th. I called the station that delivers to my work, and they refused to look for it, and instead, yes, lazily used the tracking info. Can you guess what they told me? If you said, "It left BELL, CA on November 20th," DING DING! You're right and they can all eat a fat cock.

I spend over $25,000 a year there as I am an E-Bay Powerseller....I HATE THEM TOO - LOUSY customer Service, Bad attitudes, Pathetic Company.
I am going to try UPS now....Kiss my money goodbye USPS>
They can't even make money with all there made up charges, E-Bay Sellers, Internet Sellers and catalog sellers....WHAT a JOKE. It is due to bad management and lazy overpaid employees.
The employees even have attitudes....Like they have to protect the USPS...Well guess what the Uppers do not care about you local office people.....They will buy you out early or fire you or close your office....YOU ARE EXPENDABLE OVERPAID BOX MOVERS that should be grateful to have a job and have us customers...GO FUCK YOURSELF NO ONE LIKES YOU and we all laugh about you behind your back.
If it was not for the USPS you workers would be on unemployment or sweeping up at a JR. High School. LOL

I hate the USPS. They loose everything. I am now waiting for a package from Amazon. Amazon said it shipped 3 days ago. USPS tracking says they have been "electronically notified", but no word on where it is.

I beg everyone who ships anything to ship either UPS or Fed-X, never USPS

I hate the USPS too. I will take a pledge to use all other mail companies such as UPS & FedEx when possible. & have switched to online bill pay so that I don't have to buy another stamp to pay bills. Take this pledge with me.

The USPS employees are rude & lazy & don't deserve our money.

Oh, one more thing. The USPS said that it takes weeks to change your address by mail & to do it online. That is BULL. It does not take weeks. They just want you to do it online so that they can get your emaill address & sell it. We changed our address by mail & it was done by the next day.

How about the USPS, took them 30days to deliver a bill mailed from my own city! If it fits they ship it, god knows where they send it to. I am now waiting for a priority ship, as usual it is past due. If the post man does not come in on a day, well they don't deliver the mail. That is what they tell me. If your dog barks behind locked doors, they don't deliver. If you pay for over night delivery they won't guarantee the delivery. Take my advice put the USPS out of it's misery, don't use them. They are scary!
