Sent a package priority from NY to FL on Tuesday. Once P.O. started to show tracking Tuesday night , it said scheduled delivery Saturday. Ok, whatever four days for 2 to 3 day priority. Well, its now Saturday and now tracking doesn't show an expected delivery day. It just says the package is on its way to the destination.

My Florida one says that - mailed Tuesday, due Saturday- says on way to destination. Looks like Florida is going to be an issue now- maybe lockdown issues on carriers?

Tis the season and your waiting times will increase as it always does during the holidays. This time around, who knows. So many people without jobs, facing deprivation and homelessness probably won't be doing much shopping online.
Time will tell.

When i inquired about a priority pkg. that still had'nt arrived after 14 days i was told by U.SP.S to not pester them about it until a minimum of 21 days had past. If first class is just as fast then i see no point in spending the extra $$ when i don't have to.

I currently have 5 parcels floating in space and now I see that Northern Ohio is #3 for worst USPS late delivery in the nation!..........Detroit ( Allen Park ) is #1 with all mail from northern Ohio going thru the Allen Park distribution hub. I have one parcel from northern Ohio going to southern Ohio floating around between Detroit and Toledo for 2 weeks. It is finally showing in Columbus.
The other 4 parcels are simply saying in transit to next facility and no one knows anything when you call. I only ask for the service that is promised when paid for. Nothing more and nothing less. The really bad part is Paypal will revoke my payment received and I end up holding the loss for the US Postal services extremely poor service.

I am headed up to the PO to talk directly to the Post Master in the morning.
Taking bets on whether he will even talk to me.

Gotta say I had a package 'lost in space' in the USPS system about two weeks ago but once my local post-master poked the system it moved the very next day and got to the buyer two days later....it's sure worth a try

I have 5 USPS packages that are all “arriving late”. Most of them have been on the way for two weeks and still have not moved yet.

I was just having my supper and watching FOX News and as per their segment on current status of all mail carriers.........they said expect a minimum 0f 12-18 days for any shipment that is not expedited. But amazingly they have a solution...........pay double/triple for registered, express, etc..........and you will get faster service. My question........faster than what? Is it that simple? Just pay them more money and the problem will be resolved?

I do have some compassion for the mailing services being overwhelmed but why don't they make an announcement or tell you straight up that your Priority 3-Day mail is going to be 3-weeks.

It's really bad right now with USPS. I have bought stuff and sold stuff that has been shipped Priority and takes over a week or two. Stuff sent First Class is even worse. And they don't even update the tracking all the sudden my item gets delivered.
