Wherein USPS Screws the Pooch

So we tried to get a package down to North Carolina in time for Mother’s day. Sent it out via USPS on Wednesday. Now following the track the problem isn’t with the local USPS, here’s how it went:

May 6, 2015 , 8:40 pm

Departed USPS Facility

PROVIDENCE, RI 02904
May 6, 2015 , 6:55 pm

Arrived at USPS Origin Facility

PROVIDENCE, RI 02904
May 6, 2015 , 5:40 pm

Accepted at USPS Origin Sort Facility

PROVIDENCE, RI 02909

Now the package was handed to a postman and went into the local post office at 5:40PM. By 6:55PM it was at the main Sectional Sort facility and then departed at 8;40PM

It apparently spent two days getting to Raleigh, North Carolina, finally arriving in at 2:54AM. And then out the door but to Greensboro at 4:18AM. It arrived in Greensboro on the 8th at 10:13AM. And that’s the last status update USPS has for the package.

They say it will be delivered today which is FOUR days, not the THREE promised. But as yet the package hasn’t arrived.

They do say that Christmas and Mother’s Day are the two busiest times for USPS. But really – it shouldn’t fall down like this.
