USPS has really been messing up pretty pretty badly lately. I understand they have budgetary issues but misdelivering packages and routing them way out to the middle of nowhere does not help that. Had a package recently that came from two states away make a nice 2000 mile detour to Ohio and back. I guess I am lucky that my local office will actually try to deliver bulky packages. My old post office would fill out the dreaded pink forms before they started their route in the morning until our neighbors collaborated to get a few people replaced. They ran a moderate business from home and a missed delivery meant very upset customers when deadlines couldn't be met. And I agree with dtr on their insurance being costly. I personally feel that when they accept the package, it should put them under contract to safely and finally deliver it seeing as they were paid to do so. They should also be held responsible for lost packages seeing as they are the ones responsible for losing them in the first place.
