Just a FYI -- USPS seems to be royally fucked right now. I have like 3 packages that have been "In Transit, Arriving Late" without any status updates for a week+. I think we can thank the orange buffoon in office and his lackey at the USPS for that. If anyone's getting in anything USPS be prepared to be sad and wait for who knows how long.

Hmm . . . most of my recent purchases that have been delivered via USPS have been timely. Maybe it's because they're from big vendors (Amazon, Bed Bath & Beyond)?

USPS got it right with my hat, in Chicago of all places... Came through a day early and is cheapest for anything light weight. I think they all are slammed and struggling to keep up. Fedex has really messed me up a couple of times through the pandemic. My UPS guy is cool so I usually let their atrocities slide.

UPS costs more but are endlessly easier to deal with on our side. Friendly at drop offs and really reliable with pick-ups , etc. The exact opposite for USPS, which is cheaper but I literally hate using. 98% of scheduled pick ups are blown off and marked as picked up. Dropping off at the branch is worse. The people at our local branch seem to go out of their way to be rude and unhelpful (and that's not a recent thing due to covid). We had 500 BLM tees that needed to go out last week and the pickup was blown off twice so I had to throw them in my car and drive them back to NJ. The people at the location tried to tell me to take them somewhere else, because they didn't feel like processing them.

I've been selling more on eBay recently and I had so much trouble with USPS, until I started dropping off my USPS packages at UPS. My UPS location is a pick up point for the post office and for whatever reason I've never had shipping problems when I've done it that way.

How'd the wash turn out? I was thinking about dunking mine to get some of the shipping wrinkles out.
I’ve washed and dried mine multiple times - you’ll be fine

Yeah I dropped a package off in the drop box at the post office lobby a while back and it took 2 weeks for the initial scan. UPS seems to get them in the hands of whoever they need to go to faster. I’ve also got a package that’s been in customs in Chicago since July 14th. Might consider it gone for good soon.

USPS has been fucked since the beginning of the pandemic.
Yeah, but for some reason the last couple weeks have been exceedingly worse. I've never seen it this bad. Maybe i'm just unlucky?

I’m the same as you. Was getting usps 18 East packages in like three days after they were picked up, but the past two weeks nothing is moving. Bunch of packages out there just sitting all over the country. Definitely feel for them with what’s going on in the US right now.
