Well Batmandk02.. hopefully this is not the case - but you know and remember the secret santa fiasco of 08'..
however lets hope that the USPS is just retarded and is losing the packages - that would be a better scenerio then to think our fellow tankers are screwing anyone..
HOWEVER - dont go and jump the gun and call the post office - try to catch the mailman and politly ask about your packages and let him know - in a NON threating matter that you are going to call the post office to complain - best way.. ASK THE MAILMAN WHAT HE SUGGEST.. that way he gets the hint that you will call and at the same time doesnt come off as you are going to try to get all up in his kool-aid - truthfully IT MIGHT NOT BE HIM..
now if it is.. you might magicially get your packages.. if its not at least he knows the ass chewing is going to come from the top and wont be too likley to mis-place any of your important mail (bills, bday cards, COURT SUMMONS - you know stuff like that..)
Remember these guys SHOULD be honest joes themselves and nothing will get them more vindicitive then blaming them for something that they may not be honestly doing.. think.. what would YOU do in his shoes.. I would like to think I would take a duece on your porch if you called my boss and said I was stealing when you dont have a tracking to even know the guy shipped it in the first place..
be mindful of how you approach it and it should turn out fine.. and as for him not being friendly.. not sure where you live.. but in michigan.. when there is 4ft of snow on my drive-way and some jackass would be waiving at me from the confort of him warm house and bunny slippers.. while Im freezing in -10 and walking to bring you your dumbass mail... you would be lucky that you got ignored and not the finger
btw.. Im very sleep deprived - got an advanced copy of Street Fighter 4 for my xbox 360 last night and have only gotten 3 hours sleep - had to be up at 7.. and was up till 4am playing.. dont mind my rants..

all very good points and observations, shdwknt, I live in phoenix so its pretty good weather all year round, and i dont have any vicious dogs or anything like either. When i called and complained about the mail not showing up, i never suggested it was the post man, even though i half suspect it to be him. ive been getting joe packages for awhile now, and i think maybe he has gotten curious as to what they are and/or somewhere a long the line acquired a dislike for me for some reason. the USPS said for sure this time they will call me back tomorrow, lets see what happens

its always my fault (hmmhmm i mean the MAILMANS)
best thing to do is always insist that the sender uses delivery confirmation, then when it doesnt show up, you have proof of where it is, asking the mailman is a good idea, but honestly, all mail that comes into a post office, goes out the same day (exception of bulk catalogs) and parcels are the main priority in the distribution facilities....

It may have something to do with the anticipation of cutting back USPS work days and upping the postage rate again and all that jazz... My post office stopped delivering on mondays. No warning, no explanations, but you know you almost ALWAYS get mail on monday. Myself, nor anyone else in my apartment building, have received a single piece of mail on a monday since just before Xmas. I too am awaiting a few packages, but I know they'll always get here slower than they used to. Our post master is a real dick, too. Acts like he's running the whole damn country, and can't be bothered to do anything for a customer...
