I know some people that have made $$$ and some that lost their ass The idea behind it is good and something most of us would like(ie not being tracked)  sadly, it has turned into a gold rush in the last few years.  Just like the gold rush, those selling supplies(exchanges, mining hard ware)  and big business  are the only ones getting  rich.

I bought 1 bit coin at 200, sold it when it hit 1000, should have waited, but I was ok with 500% profit.

Just. Fyi, if you fed ex something too some one in a rural area.   USPS does the final delivery, but only after fed ex pays for it.   More then once I have had packages sit at po  for weeks until it's paid or they rts  it.  Turns out fed ex does not pay quickly(any one shocked?)  So if you are sending a package that is time sensitive too the boonies, Don't use fed ex.


Honestly fedup. Is right, they 'll suck.

Experience #1.  I mailed a birthday card to my daughter (who lives in Hawaii) two full weeks before her actual birthday.  Of course, there was a check in it since it is cost prohibitive to send an actual gift to an actual island.

She hadn't received it by her birthday.

She still hadn't received it two weeks after her birthday.

I cancelled the check (bank charges $25) and had the bank send a second check from my on-line account. 

The second check arrived in less than a week (now, nearly a full month after her birthday).  The original check arrived three days later.

Experience #2.  Christmas was coming, so I took my sister's gift (she lives near Billt in AZ) to the USPS on about December 11.  I figured that was plenty of time.  Nice USPS employee said that was plenty of time and it would be delivered by December 18.   

Dec. 18 came and went with no package delivered. 

Christmas came and went with no package delivered.

I started thinking about porch pirates, but sister assured me that they have a special keyed bin for all package deliveries.  Postperson puts the package in the bin and leaves a key for said bin in the proper box for the intended recipient.

Package arrived on January 3, 2018.

Paco and his gimpy mule could have walked it from Florida to Arizona in that time.

UPS always does better.  FedEx usually does better.  DHL relies on the USPS for final delivery and is generally better.

Bottom of the barrel is the USPS.  Sometimes, it's all we've got..

Don't get me started on the USPS.....in just the last few years: lost, mis-delivered, stolen, damaged....
heck, where would I start?
I was fairly pro-post office, until our long-time carrier retired a few years ago. In the time since he retired, there has been at least a half-dozen carriers on our route and none of them could count their butt cheeks and come up with the same number twice. That's why I stopped mailing 90% of bills and went to online payments for most everything.

I'm going to have to steal that one.
