I ordered 4 items of clothing for colder weather from JCPenneys. Then I got an email yesterday evening saying it was delivered. But it wasn’t.
I walked up and down the sidewalk and no one had my package in the vicinity.
Deliveries & Non-Deliveries:
So this morning I call JCPenneys and they told me to call the carrier. The carrier said I’d have to call JCPenneys back, as they could not start a claim at this time.
So now they have my money through Paypal and if the package doesn’t turn up (even though it says it’s already been delivered) by Saturday, I can ask for a credit. But I can’t just reorder the four items. I have to wait for a credit.
I hate this type of thing, as everyone does. And with the whole supply chain problem that is happening everywhere.
This brings me to a separate problem within the postal service that I’d like to address.
The USPS Now Facing More Problems:
Mail is said to be taking longer to arrive due to an action by the Postmaster General.
Earlier this month there was an article online that talked about mail delays and price hikes for mail. Apparently, it will mostly affect 1st class mail.
This means mail delivery will be slower than in the 1970s.
Also, the U.S. Postal Service will pay $120 million over the next five years to a major logistics contractor. The current Postmaster General previously helped lead this company and his family maintains financial ties to the company.
The new contract will deepen the Postal Service’s relationship with XPO Logistics, the logistics contractor with ties to the Postmaster General.
And to add even more drama, the FBI is investigating the Postmaster General in connection with campaign fundraising activity involving his former business
Well, in summation, all I know is this: Our mail is going to take longer to get to its destination, and it is going to be more expensive.
So I ask you, what the hell do you think is going on?
