I give Up. Stupid USPS wins

Post by Charleneanne » Wed Aug 12, 2020 4:24 pm

My ACOT package that went to post office July 9 and never left for more than three weeks appears to b lost again. Last Tuesday and Wednesday I got messages saying on its way and b delivered Saturday August 8. Thursday same msg but then in bottom sorry will b late On way to next destination. And since last Thursday NOTHING. So I give up. Doubting now whether I will ever see that order.

I am  sorry this happened to you.  Mine was stuck for a month but I finally received it on Saturday.  Hopefully you will eventually receive it.

I had that happen with a different sort of package, it was actually seeds for my garden. By the time they came 2 months later, it was too late to use some of them. On the other hand, they weren't very expensive so I didn't care that much. It was just weird that I thought USPS must have delivered them somewhere else and then they came 2 months late. 

Hopefully your package will come eventually.

I've had my fill of USPS, too. And, it's not just with ACOT, they are problematic across the board for me.

I ordered from ACOT last week, requested FedEx. I got a notice yesterday that my order shipped. It came today at 2:00. I'm sticking with FedEx.
I wish people came with a thirty second trailer so I can see what I'm getting myself into.

So sad...I had this happen with 2 different orders from ACOT.  One took over 3 weeks to get here.  It boggles my mind that something that normally should take 3-4 days, now takes more than a month.  It must be the area that it is shipping from, because I have had PLENTY of online orders elsewhere with no shipping issues at all.

I too have had orders from all across the country with no problems.  I heard or read somewhere that there is or has been COVID Issues with the USPS hub in Detroit and that they have had to send mail to other HUBS to keep it moving.  Trouble is they have made a mess of the tracking system and stuff is just going back and forth.

I'm in IN and mine went to Boise, Idaho twice.  I had two orders of stuff from London which had to clear customs and I got both packages before an ACOT order.  Has to be Detroit where it started.

I've had bad luck with USPS and FedEx also. The only one that seems reliable for me is UPS.
