Can I ask you a question? Why does USPS tracking exist?
I mean c’mon. It doesn’t update at all. The word here is “tracking.” I would assume the system would “track” the package. Ya think? Well, not exactly.
I’m sure that you all have ordered and have had packages delivered by FedEx and UPS. You know, you get the email that says your order had been sent and there is a tracking link included. Click the link and you get an estimated ship date and where in the world the package currently is. It’s a really handy tool because some packages require a signature. You basically need to work your life around the package delivery.
Recently, I have had a few packages delivered by the good ol’ post office. I would say they are delivered in about the same time that FedEx ground or UPS ground would deliver them, but the problem is, I have no idea when they are going to show up. I thought one of them was going to come yesterday and then again today. Nope. The stupid thing needs my signature so I need to be here. I guess I could always wait and just go get it at the post office. But then again, that really wouldn’t be a delivery. It would be a pickup.
When this package was shipped, I received an email with a tracking code in it. I checked the USPS website and was told that it was delivered. Well then, great. Anything else? Nope. It’s been over a week. When is it going to get here? No clue.
So I ask again, why in the world does USPS tracking exist?
