SubjectUPS vs USPS new Reply to this message

UPS's tracking system:

Estimated Delivery date is
Item shipped at
Moved to St. Luis for handling
Arrived in AZ today
Out for delivery


Now here's USPS's tracking system:

The U.S. Postal Service was electronically notified by the shipper on April 23, 2007 to expect your package for mailing. This does not indicate receipt by the USPS or the actual mailing date. Delivery status information will be provided if / when available. Information, if available, is updated every evening. Please check again later

Could the Feds be any more vague with that description.
Perhaps they should just say:

"We have no idea if you package is in our system or is
even been shipped. Pray it arrives in a timely matter and isn't broken"

It's fast, cheap, and extremely convenient. All I have to do is walk down the street if I wanna send something USPS.

UPS's delivery system:

Knock on door
If answer, give package to person answering
If no answer, leave package in front of door

USPS's delivery system:

If it fits in the mailbox and doesn't require a signature, deliver it
If it doesn't fit in the mailbox or it requires a sig, knock on the door
If answer, give package to person answering
If no answer, leave note in mailbox and take package back to post office so it DOESN'T GET FUCKING STOLEN OFF YOUR DOORSTEP

Given a choice between the two, I'd take FedEx. And the lasgana.

USPS tracking stinks. I have had tracking tell me that stupid response when the package was already delivered. Their tracking system updates once a day and it is very late in the date when it does too.

UPS tracking is in near real time.

MS uses DHL to ship their packages and I have never had a good experience using them. Their tracking system stinks. I once had a package go back and forth from Chicago to like Boise or St Louis THREE times before it went out for delivery. They even managed to damage a xbox game so badly that the center spindle was cracked into 3 pieces, the disc was floating around inside the case, and an entire corner of that hard plastic keep case was missing.

I think I read somewhere a few months ago that MS stopped using DHL, so I pray next time they send me something I don't need to deal with those goons.

I've had really good experiences with FedEx freight. UPS is really good with their tracking and delivering on time too.
