I've had so many problems with USPS in teh last several months... it sucks. Luckily, no problems with lost mail (knock on wood) but, plenty with slow mail and damaged items. It seems like everything I've sent or received for teh last 6 mos or so through USPS has arrived with at minimum the packaging damaged. In some cases, the item itslef was damaged too. Rediculous.Since when did USPS purchase a herd of elephants to sit on and drag around every item that works its way through their sorting areas? I'm pretty fed up and am thinking of using UPS for the shipping of anything beyond basica carrier mail. It costs a little more but, if the items arrive uninjured, it's worth it.
