    I've had the exact opposite experience; ups arrives in a timely manner while postal packages can take 2-3 extra days with spotty tracking. USPS see cheapee, but ups is far superior for me.

    Also, I'm knocking on wood as I type this but the post office I go to the most is the greatest. Super friendly and helpful people that work there and I've never had a package go missing even though I've never watched them scan one of them. I try to drop off a box of donuts every holiday season to make sure I stay in their good graces and it seems to be working so far. Shoutout to the Northeast Minneapolis USPS.

    I dislike ups because they try to deliver my package to my door and then take it to a Mexican grocery store for me to pick up which takes 20+ minutes everytime. They're the only delivery service that won't leave with my apartment management.

    Honestly, without solid provenance, not really.

    I signed up with GoDaddy just recently and it captured all of last year for me. You can also try Quick books as it does the same thing. Wife is using Turbo Tax to do the taxes since the accountants i called all wanted $500-$700 for a joint return. I am still planning to sit down and discuss my scenario just to see if he can earn his fees and save me some money.

    Have you tried signing up for an online account with them and setting delivery instructions through the site?

    I did that and left instructions for them to leave boxes at my door when I'm not home, and they do it 99% of the time now. They used to leave me paper notices all the time before I did it.

    It looks like his actual Positive feedbacks were for people who gave him partial refunds on complaints, too....

    I just spoke to Rob, who told me that there are "no criteria" here that he can use to remove it! I asked him to look at the scores of the same Nasty feedback he's left for others. Rob said he is "reporting him", but still can't remove it. What a bunch of horse shit.

    Sometimes people put names up because of something pretty insignificant; like they never paid.... this is a legit, mandatory block. Thank you.

    Not acceptable. "Rob" is either a newbie or a douche. Any rational person can see that guy's pattern of abuse. You can get that removed.

    I am done with Linda...I was extremely disappointed with 2 recent orders. The 1st one I didn't even bother to file SNAD. Today I received a blazer for my wife. The listing described it as "No Significant Wear or Flaws". The fact is it has significant pilling/fuzz balls. *Sign*

    it is old - its preowned - validated to listing.
    It is not worthless, he paid a price for it - it has worth - contradictory to listing.

    Serious.

    When you receive a best offer from a buyer, you're looking through their feedback and see positive comments from at least 6 different members of this thread and the thrift thread. I love this community.
