This is not a slam against UPS or its employees but I'm at a loss why UPS would even want to get their deliveries involved with the Postal Service. For me the result is crappy service. UPS does their part but once the the post office gets their hands on it a package can just sit at their station or hub and grows mold on it. I recently had a birthday gift ordered by my wife from Amazon.com and unfortunately was shipped via this method. I tracked it and UPS delivered it to a regional post office and there it sits like it's trash or forgotten (over a week now.) I called the 800 number for the Postal Service 3 days after their "estimated delivery date" and after a lengthy wait I was connected to some know-it-all who had nothing but a song and dance and "we can do no wrong reply." In other words my package might as well be lost. Wouldn't it just be easier for UPS to deliver the damn thing themselves? FedEx Express used to have something like this called Smartpost (not real smart either) and it was nothing but a hassel. I could have delivered that stuff just as easily. I guess the Postal Service can do as they please and there's no justifying involved. Your thoughts?
