How I Hate The USPS, Let Me Count The Ways

I ordered a stainless steel screw set from Stig Fasteners in the UK. They promptly shipped them via registered mail. The package made it as far as my local post office where it promptly disappeared. Lost or pilfered, who knows but I am pissed.
I filed a complaint but that is kind of like Eric Holder investigating Eric Holder, nothing will happen. It will be another month before this gets sorted out and I can rehang my doors. At least they get Monday off and I don't. Did I mention that I hate the USPS.

I ordered a few fuse panels from the UK. The packaging busted open at some point and I lost nearly half of my terminals. The USPS just taped the thing back together and slapped a sticker on it that said we're sorry that your package got damaged. I doubt they even tried to pick up the pieces off the floor and put them back in the package. I cannot really be sure if the rough handling was USPS or Royal Mail, but the sticker came from this side of the Atlantic.

Not cool I'm still waiting on a few chive.com stickers. I don't have much faith in the us postal service. But I will add, 95 degrees here and my mail man is stuck in my apartment complex sorting room for 4 hours so far and no AC. He gets my respect.

I sent a check and it never showed up. I should have fedexed cash like I usually do.
