Why Does The U.S. Postal Service Have To Be Stupid & Obnoxious About Handling ‘Media’ Mail?

This was a second-hand, paperback book (yes, a James Michener) that I ordered from Amazon that I ordered on May 14, 2018. It was NOT Prime and I knew that. And Amazon did tell me that it would take 10+ days to get to me.

They shipped it on May 16, 2018 and I got it today, May 25, 2018. It took USPS 9-days!

Look at the routing: 7 intermediary stops! SEVEN. That costs money. This is STUPID.

Why bother with this inane, circuitous routing for media mail. It can’t save them any money.

They really should look into this. This makes no sense, even for the USPS.
