Special Delivery

Will someone please explain to me how my package got to me more quickly and efficiently when UPS dropped it at the Post Office yesterday afternoon for delivery to me today? Couldn't UPS have simply delivered it directly to me yesterday afternoon? A day earlier with no middleman? Am I making this too complicated?

Haha, yeah, crazy stuff that. Just read this to my husband who has been employeed by USPS for 30 years. It makes no sense.

UPS does it because they can make ONE stop at the post office dropping off ALL of the packages. Then the mailman, who is going to every house ANYWAY, brings it the next day. It's more efficient for UPS and the post office likes it because they get extra money.

Thank you Reverend Nancy!

It seems so obvious now. Also reinforces the notion that the world, indeed, does not revolve around moi. Damn.
