I bought some cards on eBay a week ago. Just checked the tracking and it shows they're still in Illinois,the same state the cards are coming from.

The president appointed a new chief of the USPS. He has cut a number of services which will make most mailed items 1-2 days later, if not more.

I had a lot of delays beginning last Christmas. Right now I have a temp mail collector so I'm getting other people's mail. I think things are clearing up as far as delivery. There are some late stays, but most mail is arriving on time. Funny thing, I bought a new shaver off ebay because I had almost 10 bucks in ebay bucks. The eBay seller bought the shaver on Amazon and shipped it to me as a gift. I left the appropriate feedback, but I haven't turned him in.

I had an eBay auction take a month to go from here in Florida to Lansing, Michigan. A lot of stuff is taking longer to get to where it's going but I haven't had any issues with them not showing up.

Well ...we try to get to the older stuff first....Okay and off he went...Best regards, David

Don't tell me...already know...so don't blame me for the slow job by the Postal Office.....tell that other Bench member cmcjr99 that hes wrong....in the last two to three weeks the mail has been moving slower and its a fact. Best regards, David

The US Postal Service has been mismanaged for decades. It is just one more that is screwed up. I just hope for the best and prepare for the worst. Massachusetts mail service is horrible. Hopefully, when I move to Ohio next month it gets better.

Our service has been typical locally (STL area), though I have mailed items to my friend in Chicago, and a few things have taken over 2 weeks to get there! I signed up for Informed Delivery about a year ago, and I feel like my service has been good, though I think there has been an increase possibly in items ordered (Amazon specifically) given stores closed, etc. Hopefully things can settle down again and start getting back to normal, I just found out today that our students are starting the year remote learning again, which is a bummer, I am ready to get back and work in person!

Blessings,

Kevin
