If you have customers in the Birmingham, AL area that didn't get their parcel, this might be why

I guess I shouldn't complain then that my carrier didn't make it to my door until 7:35 last night IN the rain.  I had no idea who'd be knocking on my door at 7:30 in a thunder and lightning storm....ooooops it's the mail lady   LOL

I dearly love my postal carriers.
They have gone above and beyond the call of duty many times.
I can remember holiday season years ago...my postal carrier showed up at my door with a package for me.
It was very late afternoon, early evening.
Did I mention he was off the clock?
Did I mention it was a few days before Christmas?
He was going thru packages that he were to be delivered the next day before leaving for the day.
He found several that he thought might be packages that those on his route would be waitiing to give out as holiday gifts.
He dropped the packages off on his way home.
Whadda nice guy!

I truly do love the staff at my local USPS, too.
Hard working peeps.

Be Kind
Donna

We love our carrier, she's a sweetie.  :heartkiss And our neighbor across the street is a mechanic for USPS. He is a wonderful guy, too.

Although this is infuriating, I could not indict the USPS as a whole - I am sure there are some bad apples there, as every business. Glad that guy was caught.

My regular mail guy, a gear head also btw, is GREAT.  Mark will come back around later and pick up if I have a motor waiting for the sealant to dry and can pack it yet, but his subs on the route?  FORGET it.  They're much like the guy in this video....never know when they're coming, IF they're coming and you can't schedule around them if you don't have a "general" idea of when/if they'll be there.  If the route is too busy and someone is covering Mark and they don't have time to get to my route....no pick up or delivery.  The gal the other night I'd never seen before and the PO closed at noon so nothing moved until today so I'm really not sure why she bothered at all except maybe she's a little different than the other subs I've had on the route.   I give my carrier a Christmas present every year because he does go above and beyond for me and if I have something waiting at the post office for the other shop addy and let Mark know he'll grab it so the next day I don't have to run over there and pick it up at the post office.  Saves me a trip.  Now if ALL the carriers on this route were that good I'd think I'd died and gone to heaven      :up

I received a weird email from Amazon the other day.  I had ordered a book through Prime and it said that they had attempted delivery (at my shop) and were unable to.  This was on a SUNDAY.  I had a hard time understanding WHY I would even get a delivery on a SUNDAY? 

I asked my very friendly carrier on Tuesday, the next day my shop was open.  He said that he was the one who had tried to deliver and the reason was.....that Amazon has cut a deal with the USPS, to deliver their PRIME packages every single day of the year, except Christmas Day and New Year's Day.

I was blown away by this.  Has anyone else heard about this?

Yep.
I've not had anything yet to be delivered on a Sunday.
