Hate the Post Office? Private Sector's Perfect Package Delivery Failure Angers many this Christmas....

Just to document for our Republican pushers of free market perfection this big failure. Channel3000:
(UPS’s) backlog left some Americans with gifts missing from under the Christmas tree Wednesday morning. "We're terribly sorry," spokeswoman Natalie Black told CNN.

UPS stuck to its plan to make no deliveries on Christmas, angering some customers.

"Thanks for totally screwing us AND lying about it all day," Mo Husseini posted on Twitter. He was responding to a UPS tweet in which the company vowed "every effort to get packages to their destination." 
Let the private sector do it better than the Post Office? The Myth busting reality...


  1. As an extension of failing global industrial and capital economic systems, our society can observe the short term disruption of goods and services. Be they induced through economic collapse, global climate disasters, peak oil, peak soil, peak water or other reasons. This season society is experiencing failures in transportation, electricity, and food sourcing. These are short term disruptions that underline the need for resilient local community increases providing long term gain.

  2. This came as a surprise because I have always had great experience when using UPS. But I suppose in the rush of the holidays, there would be some lengthy holds.
