  •  My USPS ones were late (0+ / 0-)

    For what it's worth, USPS can have problems too.

    I had 3 of 4 Priority Mail packages mailed the week before Christmas take 5 business days rather than the advertised though not guarranteed 2 days.  In one of those cases, I two of those cases I had also sent something via UPS ground to the very same address -- both of which arrived a day earlier than UPS expected and in one case thus before the Priority package.

    I'm not saying that means the PO had more problems, obviously just a personal anecdote, but USPS isn't perfect either.

    Actually, my local PO seems to have a problem with packages.  Packages (not letters) coming USPS often take one day and sometimes two days longer than the USPS tracking system says they will, with the delay always happening in my local Post Office (i.e., they arrive in my town as expected but then spend 2 - 3 days "being sorted" before being sent out for delivery).
