Well, that's TWO (2) that were let go with a slap on the wrist and a stern warning this year alone! These absolutely worthless scumbags need to be given a dose of something stronger than probation if they EVER hope to come CLOSE to experiencing the upside-down / inside-out mess that stealing mail can do to someone's life. I am a guy who's been working VERY hard--since losing my job and benefits a year ago to the 'recession'-- to eek out a crumb or two on eBay by selling-off my life-long collection of vintage toys, records and memorabilia. I saved some of the most precious items for the Holiday Season, and was both making a couple decent bucks here and there, AS WELL AS making some strangers very happy with the items I was auctioning off for cheap. Then, something terrible happened to my shipment of items I sent out Dec. 13, 2009. They "disappeared" into the black hole that is the United States Postal Service system. Vanished, even after being stamped with the "Delivery Confirmation" bright green sticker and barcode. I won't bore you with the trials and tribulations of the endless run-around, searching, checking, tracking, filing claims, etc....it didn't amount to anything, and I did IT ALL! The things I sell are usually rare, often pretty obscure things you can't find easily. Here's my newly gained knowledge that you all probably already knew: Priority MAil isn't a Priority--just expensive "regular" mail that you must pay extra for if you want any 'guarantee' no one will steal it in transit; "Delivery Confirmation" is useless if it never gets delivered--it it NOT 'tracking'!! Ha! I got you! YOu didn't KNOW that one did you??? Well, it's TRUE and they SURE DON'T go out of their way to educate you on that do they? REPEAT: Delivery Confirmation is NOT 'TRACKING'!! Also, unless you're shipping stuff 'Priority'(ha!) or some other fancy name for the same lousy service, you'll be essentially punished and made to feel cheap and stinjy as the USPS conveniently offers a lack of options and safeguards for your parcel if it isn't all dolled-up in their fancy hi-priced Super Hero outfits they 'give-away' cuz they're being 'helpful'! Believe NOTHING about the USPS being a 'good' service for you; it's a racket, and they are scared sh***less that people may find a way to live with out them. C'mon UPS, you can do it!! Just gotta find a really cheap way to send small stuff and I smell Brown Victory!(That didn't sound right...sorry) Anyhow, some bastards within the United States Postal Service stole some of my packages--no one seemed to even care; telling me I should've paid for all these extras to be sure---when I THOUGHT I WAS getting SOME kind of minor ASSURANCE they gave a F***K about keeping track of my packages!! and it really screwed-up a bunch of people's holidays, and cost a lot of heartache, time, and ultimately money-- that I, for one, could've used to buy a gift for someone, or a meal for my dog and I. Now I'm out the items AND the money I had to refund or else. Mail thieves SUCK! They are scumbags, and they need to FEEL their crime's significance. Probation---give me a break!

My mail carrier is a busty beauty who keeps me awake at nights......and the only thing she has stolen is my heart. Are there any USPS regulations which prohibit her from delivering mail to my love chamber if I am bed ridden?
