Sometimes I hate...

Yes, it is true...sometimes I hate the USPS. They did surprise me by being extremely efficient with all my dossier documents, they deliver to my mailbox fabric squares and wishes multiple times a week, they bring me wonderful gifts from my secret pal, and they even make sure that my bills are delivered on time. So why you may ask, do I hate them now? Well, it's when I pay extra for special services, and they just don't come through.

Here's the situation. I am somewhat compulsive about tracking packages that I mail as I want to make sure that they arrive. Well I tracked one such package, and this is what USPS.com is telling me:

Label/Receipt Number: 0303 1290 0001 3790 XXXX

Status: Notice Left
We attempted to deliver your item at 12:00 pm on September 19, 2005 in LYNN, MA 01902 and a notice was left. It can be redelivered or picked up at the Post Office. If the item is unclaimed, it will be returned to the sender. Information, if available, is updated every evening. Please check again later.

You're thinking to yourself, so Lisa what's wrong with that? Well the problem is, I know for a fact that this package was delivered and received by the recipient on Friday, September 16. Now how and why would they leave a notice three days after the package was already delivered??? Why do I pay this extra money to track packages, when the information provided to me is worthless??

Whinge, whinge, whinge...
