Thumbs down

Lost sucks, how the heck do you lose a package?

What I hate is no matter who it is, USPS, UPS, Fed X, Amazon when they do deliver it is just a toss and run.

Man ! At least knock on the door or ring the bell then run.

I see the amazon delivery drivers they toss, then take a picture, then run.
Then the porch pirates who follow them can run up and grab it !

Even the sellers who pay for a signature, most drivers don't ask for one.

The only driver who rings my bell is the pizza pie guy.

My mailman is good. No problem there. I have two ups guys. One tosses stuff in the driveway, the other brings it to the door. Fedex has gotten better since a new driver took over the route.

Everyone is different. Some follow the rules and policies, some don’t. I just live with it! Lol

This past February I bought a MIB MTH Premier PS2 3V Santa Fe 2-10-4 Texas off eBay. Guy was in Baltimore and shipped it to me in Chicago via USPS. It got stuck in Baltimore for a week until I called USPS. Then, after I opened a ticket, it started magically moving again. After it got to Chicago it went from the distribution hub to the wrong post office. Instead of going to my local post office it went to the post office one zip code over. Then it got stuck there for 2 days. I had enough and just went to the wrong post office to get it. It took them 30 minutes to find the package but it was there and I finally got the locomotive a week and a half later.

Here's the funny thing: the shipping label was perfect. No smudges, tears, or any damage. The address and barcode were clear as day. When I picked it up the box was even perfect with no damage. How it got lost several times is beyond me.

Whenever you label a package make sure the address is well protected.

I usually cover the address label with clear packing tape. Not foolproof, but better than nothing.

I only cover the address with the clear tape, USPS is pretty anal about you not taping over their barcodes.

So how do they lose something that big? Maybe a worker who runs trains realize what it was and purposely misplaced it. When I worked in a major department store, a new sweater would come in if the stock person liked it he would put it on and wear it all day. There were no tags because he was the one that put the tags and security tag on.

Then he would wear it home. It didn't happen a lot, only in the fall.

The post office concluded their “investigation “ but didn’t provide any results.

Still in the tracking system.

Another item I ordered from a different dealer, an MTH water column, came from Maryland, to NJ and is now doing a trip to Chicago and back to NJ. I may get it someday....

tWhen I delivered copy paper and office supplies back in 2000. I was unloading my delivery on to a loading dock. Next to me was a FedEx driver throwing his deliveries over a dumpster on to the dock.
