Who is the fucking business guru at UPS who thought having USPS do their last-mile shipping at the holidays was a good idea?
UPS = Always get my Amazon Prime packages either the day promised or a day early. If there is an issue, the tracking number gives useful, updated location information.
UPS --> USPS = Packages get handed off to USPS on the second day and tracking all but ceases, USPS doesn't even try to deliver on the third day, one item has to be bought at a brick-and-mortar store because it was a gift for an exchange on the third day, MrG goes to post office and deals with snotty bitch at counter who proves useless except to say the item will probably be attempted to be delivered on the fourth day, USPS lies about "attempted delivery" on the fourth day, and now Amazon has to comp one-day shipping to make sure the second item arrives in time for Christmas. Oh, and no one knows what will happen with the original order, since USPS doesn't see fit to just leave the fucking thing at my front door despite Amazon clearly placing "carrier leave if no response" on the shipping label.
