What my title should really say is: “The USPS can’t track packages & deliver at the same time“.
The tracking is basically the issue. Having to track items screws them up. I have learnt this over the last 3-years from similar experience. Doesn’t happen all the time, but happens MORE OFTEN than not.
Just recently when I was at my local post office I heard one of the ‘postals’ saying this to a customer who was inquiring why a tracked item was still in the system rather than having been delivered. TRACKING.
This is PRIORITY MAIL. 11-days & it has moved 58-miles!
Yes, the COVID Christmas of 2020 has exacerbated matters, but this is what we have in this country.
To be honest, I will just be glad if it just gets delivered.
