Dear Amazon, a couple of requests

I frequently order from you (check my records, I’m not exaggerating). I’m giving you this feedback just as the Christmas shopping season starts to help you, not out of spite.

First, had I wanted USPS to deliver my packages I’d order from someone other than a class act like Amazon. So, please don’t use an organization that’s dying for a reason (inability to get the job done).

Second, if you’re going to use USPS (and see #1, you shouldn’t), please don’t ask for a signature on a $50 order. UPS and FedEx know us quite well, and know our neighborhood is remote and really really safe, so they know where the packages should be placed/hidden. USPS apparently doesn’t.

In fact, they have failed to deliver my package twice now, twice sending me an email that they left me a note (they didn’t) and telling me when they tried (when we were home, both times). Getting the picture? USPS isn’t reliable, or trustworthy. So stop trusting them with our business.
