…heard about delivery problems this Christmas? Last year, UPS employees stole two of our presents, so this year, we sent via the USPS, priority mail, insured, in plenty of time. Two packages should have arrived four days ago. One didn’t arrive. My father had to go chasing a mail truck to get the other; they’d left a note on Christmas Eve saying it could be picked up next week. My mother-in-law said she has heard of all kinds of problems with the Postal Service this year. Meanwhile, a vendor didn’t get two packages out by the time promised; nonetheless, they still should have arrived via FedEx in time for Christmas and neither did.
