u.p.s. picks it up from the shipper 04.01.2017 at 1.38 a.m. in columbus, missouri. u.p.s. delivers the package to the united states post office in fife, washington on 04.03.2017 at 2.31 a.m.
the u.s. post office delivers the package to the united states post office in portland, oregon ("the black hole" of shipping, as i like to call it) on 04.03.2017 at 9.43 a.m., and the portland, oregon post office "accepts delivery" on the same date, at 4.00 p.m.
6 hours and 17 minutes for the portland, oregon post office to figure out that it has my package.
so, in sum, the package moves from columbus, missouri via kansas city, missouri via fife washington to portland, oregon in three days.
and, there, in the portland, oregon post office my package has resided for four (4) days, until today's date, 04.07.2017 without budging a single inch, so far as i can tell. on 04.06.2017 at 05.31 pm, 5.36 pm and 5.37 pm, and 04.07.2017 11.22 am and 11.27 am the package has been processed "for shipment." there is no indication in the "tracking data" whatsoever that the package has departed the portland, oregon office of the united states post.
so, let me see. united parcel service moves the package from point of origin in columbus, missouri to fife, washington in three days. the united states post office, by contrast, has moved my package from fife, washington to portland, oregon in 4 days. and, no package in the mail this afternoon.
my guess is that i will receive the package either monday or tuesday afternoon.
you leftists out there, to the extent that any of you read "enemy communiques" should keep this in mind, hell bent for election as you are for the imposition of governmental tyranny. if you intend to impose it, you had better contract it out to private enterprise, lest you never get anyone shot behind the ear in a dank, dark, dreary dripping wet basement in an expeditious fashion.
i will keep you posted on this little saga, of the package that wore out before it got delivered.
update, 04.08.2017. received by the u.s. post office milton freewater, oregon at 7.50 am. package sorted by the post office milton freewater, oregon at 8.16 am. package out for delivery milton freewater, oregon at 8.26 am and i anticipate that tony will deliver to my porch somewhere around 2.00 pm, as i am about midway in his daily route. steve would deliver on weekdays, but he is coaching the girls softball team on this rainy day. tony will cover. end update.
in sum, two days from columbus missouri to portland, oregon. five days from portland, oregon to milton freewater, oregon.
