I think I pretty much agree with you. UPS is the most cumbersome company to deal with when it comes to shipping with their requirements for signatures on everything. FedEx and the post office, not to mention Amazon, all seem fairly straightforward and easy to deal with. In fact, I kind of prefer the US post office because in our neighborhood they have a lock box so porch piracy isn’t really an option. Plus, I don’t remember having a lot of problems with packages and letters not getting delivered.Shipping gets very complicated these days. My order was sent via UPS, but USPS delivered it. As much as people complain about our postal service, I'd rather them handle my package than UPS. Of course, that is situational and dependent upon the workers. The UPS people here are racing like maniacs and don't bother even ringing door bells, while my delivery guy rings the doorbell, isn't afraid to get out of his truck to ask questions for clarification etc. I get the sense the UPS people would drop-kick my packages near the house if nobody was watching, while the USPS guy almost puts on white gloves before he handles my packages.
