I for one welcome our new Postal Service overlords.

True story: The portable DVD player I ordered via Amazon took four days to get from Maspeth, NY to San Pablo, CA - and another three days to get from San Pablo to San Francisco. (About 20 miles, or a half-hour drive, according to Google Maps.)

March 16, 2013 10:08:00 AM CA US Delivered
March 16, 2013 08:07:00 AM San Francisco CA US Arrival Scan
March 15, 2013 08:42:00 AM San Francisco CA US Tendered to local postal carrier for final delivery
March 15, 2013 02:23:00 AM San Francisco CA US Arrival Scan
March 15, 2013 01:40:00 AM San Pablo CA US Departure Scan
March 13, 2013 05:38:00 PM San Pablo CA US Arrival Scan
March 9, 2013 01:25:00 AM Maspeth NY US Departure Scan
March 8, 2013 07:18:00 PM Maspeth NY US Shipment received by carrier
March 8, 2013 06:05:39 PM US Shipment has left seller facility and is in transit to carrier

The funny thing is, it was nominally shipped by UPS and I get my mail at a UPS mailbox downtown. The curvy, red-haired gal at the UPS station confided that UPS sometimes hands off packages to the Postal Service, and that's what happened here. (See line 2 above, plus the box had a USPS sticker on it when I picked it up.)

So baron_waste, maybe I should start having things routed through the center of the galaxy!
