Wow, that’s awful!!! It sounds like the problem is with your local branch.  I have the opposite situation – if I could make every package I order go through USPS I would, because I ALWAYS have problems with UPS. But I’ve never had a problem with the postal service here.

@SoontobeMrsA: Yikes, that’s terrible! I’m in Somerville, just outside Boston – probably not quite as far north as you.

It is not just you.

One of our guests still hasn’t received their official invite, and the wedding is over. Luckily, we stay in touch, so they knew all the details.

I have sent bills and packages for them never to be received by the recipient, and I have had things that have been sent to me that I have never received and/or they have been returned to the sender because there is no such address. Okay, we have been living at this address going on 11 years, so obviously there is such an address, and the senders have had the correct address on the packages, letters, etc.

The post office is the only company that I know of that can raise it’s rates and still get away with subpar customer service.

We’ve also had a few guests that didn’t ever get their invitations–I think they were all friends of ours who live in apartments and use shared mailboxes.  But still, that’s no excuse for not delivering mail!

I just got a wedding shower invite for a shower that happened 2 months ago. The date stamp was over 3 months ago so I have no idea where the invite was for all that time. I felt like such a jerk and had to contact the Maid/Matron of Honor and bride and apologize even though it wasn’t my fault.

Last week my boyfriend went to re-new his license and found out his license had been suspended. They said he ran a red light and sent him a ticket but we never got anything.

So ya, I am not a big fan of the USPS.
