Ever have USPS lose a package?

I shipped a package via 2-Day Priority mail on the 14th. Tracking shows that it left the facility in Montgomery, AL on the 15th, but that's the last of it.

Have any of you guys ever had USPS lose a package?

It's not a high-dollar item, and there is no issue here with the recipient. It's just my first problem with USPS.

Yes, I had one lost and it is the most helpless feeling. It was a package coming to me and the last anyone knows for sure is that it left my post office here in Mountain Home in the possession of the delivery lady. She didn't remember where she delivered it, but it did not go back to the post office with her. The post office was unwilling to do anything about it and to this day I have no idea who received it. It was an RC related item but not a high dollar or critical item.

I bought a plane off e*ay sometime back, took 30 days to arrive by priority mail, tracking # number disappeared from the system after 5 days. Seller refunded my payment, then on the 30th day arrived. Had 7 shipping labels on it from different PO locations, finally delivered by UPS (?). PO, when queried, could not explain their process on this one. Kept the box for old times sake!

Yes. I shipped Shoo some Enya parts in a small official mailing envelope over 4 weeks ago. He never got them, so I assume they are lost. First time that has ever happened to me. Shipped normal mail.

Well, luckily, the package that USPS appears to have lost is just a set of rolled plans. I can laugh that minor expense off and not lose any sleep. But it does make me a bit nervous about using USPS again. If that had been a high-dollar item, I would be furious! I would of course refund the buyer's money, but I can't imagine that the USPS would get in any hurry about finding my package or paying out on their "insurance."

I recently had a package showed delivered after two days from New York to San Fran. Tracking shows delivered on a Saturday. Got home from work that evening to find no package. That was almost two weeks ago. $48 worth of stuff. Either delivered to wrong house or swiped by a passerby. No bueno!

Priority mail with $50 insurance. Can I pursue a claim?

Must be something personal between you two, or may just you one. Probably should stay way.

Meant it should just stay that way, but you get it. "Patience grasshopper" has nothing to do with answering the op's question. He must have some issue with the op, to post something like that.

I had one come in from family 6 months later, all taped up. Nothing valuable was in it, so it was no big deal. I imagine it spent 6 months above a drop tile ceiling in a postal center bathroom, until the HVAC guys finally came across it. Something like that.
