Mad Props To The U.S. Postal Service Part Two: Lost Passport Edition
Today I checked the state department's tracking page, and learned the passport was mailed almost two weeks ago. Then I checked the Priority Mail tracking number and learned the passport had been marked "delivered" on June 29. So I will have to report it as stolen, in which case it will no longer be valid, and I have to apply for a new one, which probably won't arrive in time for my vacation.
Thank you, United States Postal Service, for your outstanding commitment to customer service and national security. I guess you lost my birth certificate and the package I ordered on eBay, too.
