    Default USPS Workers must be smoking something

    Get a load of this....

    Processed through Sort Facility, October 13, 2009, 8:18 pm, CHICAGO, IL 60701

    Processed through Sort Facility, October 14, 2009, 5:08 pm, OAK CREEK, WI 53154

    Arrival at Post Office, October 15, 2009, 4:03 am, RACINE, WI 53403 (Umm why are they sending it farther away from Milwaukee, is that efficient?)

    Processed through Sort Facility, October 15, 2009, 8:12 pm, OAK CREEK, WI 53154 (Back to Oak Creek again....)

    Processed through Sort Facility, October 16, 2009, 9:03 pm, OAK CREEK, WI 53154 (I guess they just it to chill in OC for awhile?)


    Remind me again why USPS is struggling?

    I live in the Milwaukee area as well and mine usually goes from Oak Creek to my house, sounds like they screwed up. Couldn't tell you why, maybe they need a PV instead of whatever they are currently using. LOL

    Unfortunately, mistakes do happen sometimes - at least they caught it before it went halfway accross the nation or something. I don't know where its destination is, but it would appear the package left out on route, hit Racine, WI - was tagged as an incorrect route and sent on it's way back... Depending on how many Hubs there are in certain cities, a package will actually arrive at the 'main' hub, go to another one - and that location is the one designated for 'ok all packages from this place get packed on the truck that leaves for city x'.

    It sucks, but when you are the busiest shipping company in the world, with the least funding and you are understaffed pretty often - I am actually amazed it works out as well as it does!!

    Hope you get your stoofs soon!!

    Take care,
    - Hap

    At least yours got out of Chicago. Mine seems to be lost in the USPS Chicago Triangle.

    Your item was processed through and left our CHICAGO, IL 60701 facility on October 13, 2009. The item is currently in transit to the destination. Information, if available, is updated periodically throughout the day. Please check again later.

    Hey, at least it didn't go to Florida. Had that happen once with a package that was sent intrastate in AZ.

    mine said Electronic Shipping Info Received, October 14, 2009 for two days
    and then magically it appeared in Kearny, NJ and was delivered on the 16th!
    don't give up hope, I don't think they pdate the shipping info as often as UPS does
