    Good luck with that. Looks like it shipped smart post, which is basically the same as sure post. You'll get it whenever its convenient for your post office to process it. Greetings from the Capitol City, btw.

    You forgot to add that that's logistics.

    Is Sure Post the same as Mail Innovations?

    No it's not. We do the dirty work for USPS. They sit on it till there ready

    1 mile? Then why didn't you go pick it up there?

    This happens with both companies, free shipping is to blame.

    This is not an option with the Post Office.

    Inefficiencies within the Post Office are to blame.

    He said the store where it shipped from was only 1 mile away. So why didn't he go down there and pick it up. If that had happened we wouldn't be here wasting bandwidth.

    It was a birthday present from my dear sweet mother who had me through immaculate conception. She ordered it for me and thought it would be a nice surprise.

    1. FedEx is not UPS so fix your title.
    2. It's now in the hands of USPS so you just gotta wait.

    I guess i could add a 'This is' in front of the title, but i don't want to.

    So if they would have sent it UPS Surepost, the Post Office would have delivered it days ago?

    If you have a complaint why don;t you call the shipper and complain about it.... Complaining here or on a FED EX board isn't going to help the shipper is the one that determines how the package get shipped it has nothing to do with UPS or FED EX it just the shipper and customer being cheap and saving a little on shipping

    The absurdity is the store is one mile away from his house---he could have walked there and back 100 times over by now.

    I guess i do sound like i'm complaining....but I just had no idea that the USPS would be this slow processing a fed ex smart post shipment. What kind of reputation do you think they are giving Fed ex/UPS by delaying shipment. The average joe just see's that it is a Fed ex/UPS shipment and blames them.
    As far as me picking up what I want.......I CAN'T....the company wants to wait for either the pkg to arrive, or wait and file a claim before they give me another of what they already shipped.

    I was under the impression that when we deliver stuff to the PO, they deliver the next day. The only stuff they hold is stuff that is requested to hit doorsteps by certain dates. Other than those specific circumstances, I would think that the PO wants to get rid of stuff, not warehouse the stuff.

    No they deliver it when they get around to it. It could be the next or the day after... IF it gets to the post off on Friday you might not get the package to Monday. The post office is very inefficient because they can be.
