Good Ol' U.S. Post Office
I'm not bashing the USPS but I am somewhat amazed at the way they handle mail. Last summer I rooted 3 pieces of Confederate rose which I mailed by First Class mail to Sanger, Texas. Well, it took over a week to get there and the box had been broken open. The receiver said the plants inside were in bad condition and she could see them through the broken box. I sent them bu first class at the suggestion of her son who works for the USPS. Well, Monday I mailed some unrooted cuttings to her and they arrived on Wednesday. This is not the first time I've had similar experiences. I used to c0-edit a national flower club magazine. I could mail stuff to my co-editor and it took 5 days to get to Chattanooga. I could mail stuff the same day to the president in Indiana and he got it in 3 days. Is anyone a USPS employee and can you explain this mystery to me?
