Matrix notified me that my copy of KP shipped on the 12th, last Tuesday, via UPS. Needless to say, I still haven't gotten it, and today is Sunday. I'll be fairly surprised if I get it tomorrow. If this had been shipped with the U.S. Postal Service (Priority), I would have had it on Thursday (note: this would have been *prior* to the blackout).
As for UPS:
* No Saturday delivery - bullshit. (USPS delivers on Saturday)
* They deliver at THEIR convenience, and if I can't be home when THEY come, the package eventually gets sent back. Or, I have the choice of driving 30 miles roundtrip to pick up the package myself at their hub - bullshit. Good thing I live in a city because God help me if I lived in the country. (There are many more Post Offices than UPS hubs, including mine, which is only a three-mile roundtrip for me.)
* Before I can track my package at the UPS website, I first have to register - bullshit. (No registering at the USPS website, just paste in the tracking number and enjoy.)
Matrix, why do you do this to your customers? To my knowledge, the USPS offers all the services UPS offers, including tracking and delivery confirmation. I know, I've used these USPS services for my eBay auctions.
What's more, the USPS will give you *FREE* Priority shipping boxes. Imagine that, something free from the government!
Don't you think you ought to at least give your customers the *option* of using USPS?
I've noticed a few companies appear to be reluctant to use USPS - what's the reason for that? I mean, Hoover is long dead and Cointelpro was stopped decades ago (although who knows who's snooping through the mail nowadays, granted).
