    Does the USPS creed still apply?

    "Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds"


    I know that is used to work this way but in my neighborhood, since the old carrier retired a couple of years ago, not so much.

    Everything that i've ever had shipped to me VIA USPS has arrived in a timely manner, about when I expected it. Keep in mind I'm in Canada, so CPS does the last leg of the delivery.

    When I first moved up here the old timer postman assigned to us came out once in a blizzard to make a pickup. He climbed up over a 4ft mound of snow 4 times to carry all of the packages out to his van and never once complained, even thanked me for my business! Well he's retired and we've gone through more than a few undesirables since then and the only thing that I can count on from my current postman is not to count on him at all.

    I still think the post office (overall) does a good job in getting my stuff out and delivered in good form but the postmen I see really make me wonder.

    Oh, one another thing about USPS that drives me nuts is how they change their damn website every 6 months or so (it seems). Just when the glitches from the last change get fixed they put up a whole new site with new glitches galore. They must have a whole department there just making up work for themselves to do or something, it's beyond ridiculous what they come up with.

    I have to agree with you on the old timers. I had a post lady that delivered mail till I think 70 (or at least looked like it) and she was forced to retire. We now have a new post lady, and well.... lets just say she is inconsistent at best.
