Are You Kidding Me?!.......My Actifit Report Card: January 3 2023
Thank you for stopping by today!
Are you kidding me?! I remember a line from I believe, National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation where it was said, ‘there are long lines everywhere this time of year’. Well, it’s after Christmas, but the lines are there more than ever at the post office! I stood in line for over an hour and 15 minutes, to get my Amazon order that had arrived on the 21st of December. I had been told at ladies Bible study today, that if the line was at the back entrance to the building, it was a 3+ hour wait! Who has that kind of time? @silvertop talked me into going back in and waiting. I thought it’d only be about 30 minutes. Wrong! I found out as we all stood there talking amongst ourselves, that once you made it to the window, it would be 45-60 minutes for them to find your stuff!! Crazy-right?! I stayed and did hear them tell one of the people directly after me, that it would be that long. Fortunately, it was only about 20+ minutes once they took my information before I got my packages. 😳🙄🤪
So, apparently the problem isn’t just at our post office, but at others in the area as well. Little to no mail is actually getting delivered including my PO Box. I notice most folks were pulling Amazon order tracking.
So here’s what I kind of wonder: if people are paying for Amazon Prime for delivery in 1-2 days, then Amazon might need to: 1- reduce the cost of prime and extend delivery times; 2- change carriers to FedEx or UPS; 3- get their own delivery fleet; or 4- light a fine under USPS’s higher ups to get more people in there to help their people! This is crazy all around; for the customers; for the workers-there has to be some kind of solution! Imagine the impact on other businesses and individuals as well!
I’m frustrated with the whole thing and I do feel for the postal workers too.
Once home, we set out for a hike. Jan had other obligations and was unable to come.
Here’s some landscapes for you.
Another sunset photo.
It was a good day in the end, but with some orders still in the pipeline, will I be waiting 2+ weeks for what is promised as 1-2 days?
Tomorrow is my first workday of this new year and it’s an earlier than normal (although this seems it’s becoming the norm) morning. Now, if those insurance company websites will just work right!
That’s gonna be it for now. Take care and enjoy your day or evening. Please continue to pray for 🇺🇦

Where are you located? Amazon deliveries here (Denver) are delivered by Amazon's own fleet unless it's from an indie seller who just lists on Amazon and they ship USPS or something else. I know the post office is wildly understaffed like most places nowadays, but WOW.
Hey there! I am in Everson, WA. I also hear Bellingham, WA and Ferndale, WA, all within a 30 mile radius of me, apparently are in the same boat. A couple of people in line with me said their packages were from the 16th and the 18th. Our Amazon facility is in Kent and Fife WA, less than 100 miles. It's crazy, but I do think Amazon needs to do something! Craziness!
You should complain to their customer service, especially if you're paying for Prime. Are you so far out that all your mail goes to the post office and not to your house?
Yeah the holiday break means more work afterwards.

Thank you so much!!
Yep, the Canadian postal system has under performed as well, to put it lightly.
I am thinking that if they don't get this straightened out soon, it might snowball to a point where they can't. I guess time will tell! Take care sis!🤗💜

Incredible! I have not heard of such a delay in the post office!!!
You have problems in the post, for sure... maybe short staff?
At least you're got good weather. Here... it's raining cats and dogs.
