United States Postal Suckage

I’m ENRAGED you guys.

On May 1st I mailed three small packages: 2 to New York State and one to Memphis, TN. I sent to the ones to New York regular airmail, but I really needed to the other one to be in Memphis before the weekend. I opted to send it Express, which costs WAY more, just to ensure its timely arrival.

On Thursday I heard that one of the New York packages had arrived, and on Friday I heard the other one had. I hadn’t bothered to check the tracking on the Memphis package yet, and when I did I saw that it had been delivered on Thursday. “Oh good,” I thought. I never heard from the person I was sending it to but I figured she was just busy, but by yesterday I was wondering so I emailed her and asked. “No package yet,” she said.

WHAT.

I hopped over to the USPS website to see what was up and this is what I saw:

ARE YOU KIDDING ME? I’m seriously so pissed! I paid a ton of money for nothing! I KNOW I wrote the address AND phone number of the person I was sending it to correctly, and it’s not like she lives in some weird, obscure, hard-to-find neighbourhood; her apartment is a block from the Lorraine Motel, aka the National Civil Rights Museum. IT’S KIND OF HARD TO MISS, BEING ADJACENT TO A HISTORICAL LANDMARK AND ALL. It’s supposedly being returned to me, but who knows if it’ll ever arrive, I mean if the USPS can’t find someone in their own country and I don’t have a lot of faith that they’ll actually send it back to me. The worst part is that it was for someone’s birthday, which was on Monday, so now the whole thing is pointless.

THANKS FOR NOTHING, USPS.

  1. I mail things across town and they just never arrive. I hope you at least get it back.

    • Sometimes I hate mailing things to other people in Canada because it’s expensive- sometimes it costs more for me to mail something to another Canadian than mailing the same thing to an American, but AT LEAST when I send something Canada Post it actually arrives!

  2. I just tried to have a package mailed to me twice(once at my place than my parents) via USPS….and each time I got this bullshit address unknown message! I seriously don’t get what it means.

    • IT MEANS THE POSTAL CARRIERS ARE STUPID LAZY MORONS WHO CAN’T BE BOTHERED TO PULL THEIR HEADS OUT OF THEIR ASSES LONG ENOUGH TO LOOK AT THE ADDRESS ON THE FRONT OF A GODDAMN BUILDING IS WHAT IT MEANS.

  3. I hate the USPS. So much.

  4. Wow, you are royal jerk. MILLIONS of packages go through just fine and somehow yours gets messed up so you assume that it’s THEIR fault? Wait until you get the package back and then start bitching. You know, like I’m bitching, pathetically and impotently. Like me. Pathetic and impotent.

    • HEY GUESS WHAT SMART GUY, I got the package back and the address WAS written on it correctly, so it WAS the USPS mail carrier who fucked it up. I believe that means you owe me a million dollars.

      Who’s the ~royal jerk~ now?
