I was on the fence about Amazon Prime until this local news story broke last Christmas...

We had no problem with our packages during this time as it was only Prime members who were affected.



The rusty wire that holds the cork that keeps the anger in
Gives way and suddenly it’s day again
The sun is in the east
Even though the day is done
Two suns in the sunset, hmph
Could be the human race is run

USPS has been frantically fighting off irrelevancy for several years now and they are desperate to find any new ways to raise money.

I'm pretty sure UPS and Fed Ex do this as well, I know Fed Ex does for a fact as I used to work for them. It's amazing how much hockey product they'd "lose" in transit to our accounts but just so happen to have many teams that play in Canada for tournaments.

About 3-4 years ago Fed Ex lost over 400 custom hockey sticks for NCAA Unv of Alaska-Anchorage... How do you lose a skid that large and heavy... rolleyes
