We all know that delivery times are not guaranteed. That said, since this situation is so particularly egregious, you might try talking to a live person, stating the you understand that there's no guaranteed delivery but that this is different, and make sure you explain the back-and-forth as well as the overall time. They can look up the tracking information for themselves and see how stupid this situation is. Start at your local post office, and if that gets you nowhere, call the office of the Postmaster General at (800) 275-8777. And maybe that'll get a result.I just checked it today...it went BACK to Memphis on March 3rd and left Memphis AGAIN. This makes it the SEVENTH trip between Saint Louis and Memphis since Feb 2nd. Sheesh. Just crazy.
Well, no wonder it hasn't made it to Indiana!But it's going to Missouri!
I have not yet done a sim to decide what I'm going to fly in it. I will be doing that this weekend sometime. I won't be trying for any altitude records, but want to send it with some zip!!
Murphy's Law dictates that when the team goes to St. Louis the package will be in Memphis or on the road in between.The obvious solution is to organize a commando raid on the St Louis postal facility. Then once you have it back... put it in the mail to the next stop.
It's a hub and spoke system, just like the airlines. Like changing planes in Chicago when flying from Boston to Western South Carolina (which I've done). As long as the package got to you in reasonable time, there's no point in questioning (or even examining) the route.I ordered some electronic parts from Dallas (Garland). They went immediatly to the west coast of Florida. Dallas-to-OKC is ~200 miles, straight down the interstate. Do these people own a map?
That's just it. Dallas (Coppell) IS a hub. No other package ordered from the same place has done this. I ordered on Feb. 20, shipped on 22nd. Pkg still "In Transit, Arriving Late".It's a hub and spoke system, just like the airlines. Like changing planes in Chicago when flying from Boston to Western South Carolina (which I've done).
