    For the most part, usps has been pretty good to me too. More than once I've chased after the mail guy to give him a letter or package, and stuff usually arrives quickly and safely. I know though how frustrating it can be, I've had letters completely ripped to shreds on arrival in that obnoxious "It's not our fault" bag...

    the mail guy treat us pretty good here,hes actually quite friendly. I ended up having a small chat with him one day when he dropped off a package for me, although there was one time where we did have a mail man who never delivered our mail, no idea why but he didnt do it then he got replaced my the one we have now. Im glad that switch was made though

    This probably has nothing to do with the mailman. Packages most liely get damaged during transport stacked with all those other boxes . . .

    I think the best one related to me, is where I sent 5 large Sarracenia in a triangle tube, I was sent pics of the arrival since they were excited for the unwrap... There was only half a box, and plastic over the top of the item inside. Once the plastic was cut away, there was a poster... of a book shelf. No plants, no order sheet, no instructions, no peanuts. I guess the people that were expecting the poster were just as baffled to receive some strange plants.

    My best involved corals. Oh, they were marked correctly. But FedEx took it upon themselves to deliver to a completely different number, on a completely dfferent street, in a completely different town, where they left all 3 boxes in the un-airconditioned hallway of an apartment building. I drove the 3 miles to the address when the taracking showed as delivered and I called it in as not delivered. They gave me the address of his last stop, and sure enough, there were my packages. The next worst is one of the UPS guys who routinely refuses to come down my driveway (about 200 feet, ends in a circle) and just throws packages in the woods. Complaining has done no good. Unions. >
