The Moses Lake Post Office
is a Malfunctioning Mess
A gross amount of mail, Priority Mail, that originates in Moses Lake, is lost "In Transit," and no postal worker at the Moses Lake is of any use in locating where a piece of mail might be stalled... even when presented with a tracking number.
The postmaster in Moses Lake is despised by his front clerks, because he offers no help, no guidance, no leadership, not even words of kindness.
The postmaster in Moses Lake, Washington, a brusque, incompetent, rude-to-customers, unpleasant man, is the subject of laughter from Moses Lake postal clerks if a customer remarks that the postmaster has soiled, soiled like a rockchuck defecating in a stack of hay bales, has SOILED every place he was busied himself.
More to the present point: I mailed a Priority Mail envelope (with a book proof and a 40-year-old valuable poetry chapbook) on November 29, 2016, mailed it to my publisher in Redondo Beach, California. Although Priority Mail is touted by USPS as "Three Day" mail, my postal receipt predicted delivery in four days...
... but six days have passed without delivery.
As for tracking, it relies with the ambiguous phrase: In Transit.
The United States Postal Service is a malfunctioning mess... and among the worst Post Offices in the nation is the Moses Lake Post Office, administered by an incompetent, a boor, a lazy-brained goofball who should be incarcerated in a federal home for the imbecilic.
If your local Post Office is problematic, phone your Congressman or United States Senators.
