    well the missing box with our helmets and her other boot continues


    wifey went to post office in duluth AGAIN, this is where she mailed boxes from

    they told her it had came back to there but they had resent it to mt

    but it had came back here and our local post office should have it

    so i go to gainesville po, they sent me to another post office annex

    where the girl asked me twice if i lived in missoula

    she then checked and 30 minutes later told me box was in atlanta & we need to file a claim

    i said can't ya just sent it to my house??


    she said oh it's coming to your house it's not going to sit on the shelve forever :baldy

    Don't ya just love the USPS. Our's is no better. You would think with all the online buying now they would get their acts together, hire the people they need and get service levels back to what they were 20 years ago.
