    I have never had a problem with the Post Office. I have only ever had problems with FedEx and UPS.

    Mostly FedEx though.

    Don't use FedEx.

    I've only had problems with UPS recently but on the whole those three have been pretty good, which is weird considering where I live.

    I liken it to that island from Pirates of the Caribbean. You can't get there unless you've been there before.

    All three major carriers lose shit, fuck with people over insurance claims, and fail to deliver stuff on time.

    People have their preferences and that's fine, but I worked at a mail boxes etc (back before they became the UPS store) and we sent stuff via all the carriers every day.

    I can assure you, the rate of fuck-ups was more or less even across the board.

    Sounds like a rationalization born out of indoctrination to me.

    QUILTBAG Mexican jihadists are a good mad lib solution.

    I think I'm going to open up a QUILTBAG Mexican Jihadist food truck.

    With korean bbq.

    I would shop there.

    I love me some QUILTBAG meat.

    Oh you would.

    I couldn't even get UPS to apologize to an old dude who sent an inadequately-protected coffee mug one time. He didn't care if it cracked or even broke in transit, he was just sending it to someone else for the logo.

    When it broke in transit UPS threw it out. No refunds because it wasn't packed properly.

    Their policy is it it breaks and they deem it wasn't packed correctly, it just becomes their property and they get to throw it out.

    The people I talked to at UPS stopped just short of telling me to go fuck myself.

    I have equally delightful stories about FedEx and the USPS but I think you guys get the point.

    When a company screws up they can be assholes about it, and there is no perfect shipping company.

    DHL, but that's because they couldn't afford the A/C units for their trucks.

    So, I went to visit grandpa today. He's still sharp if a little weak.

    The TV was on Fox News and about a half hour in he just blurts out, "What a bunch of nonsense!"

    He's a good guy.

    If I had tattoos I'd stipulate in my will that I was to be skinned and made into a lamp or book binding upon my death.

    My only issue with USPS is I'm used to UPS doing everything. I give them something and they fuckin box it full of peanuts and address it and everything!

    I am getting more used to using USPS for stuff though. They are the cheapest.

    It should be a pun.

    I have a makeup book called "Making Faces" and this would be excellent bound in skin.
