Unfortunately, yes, JB - that's par for the course.
Here's the path my 6105 is taking with USPS on its way to Duncan - it was stuck in San Francisco for almost a week with no updates, very unsettling as you can imagine:

What has happened to our once great countries ? :)
Welcome to the great aging crisis of the 21st century. At least the U.S. and U.K. are going to keep growing over the next few decades - almost every country on the continent is going to have fewer people living in it in 2050 than it does now and an increasing percentage of them are going to be over 65.

I'm not saying that (less than stellar) leadership isn't playing a part for both of us, but even the best leaders are going to struggle with how to keep providing the stuff (fast shipping, pensions, etc.) they always have with a shrinking base of workers to pay for and use them.

Yes unfortunately this is normal. What’s worse is Canada to the U.S. I bought some monster pins and collars on Nov 29. Still waiting. But even years ago watches would disappearfor a couple or three weeks if sent post. DHL has always been super fast from Europe to me on the east coast of the USA

Very common and from the sent out town we know who sent it to you too !

My Spain package got here yesterday shipped in November.

Trump took sorting machines off line and put a crony in to keep the USPS a disaster in his wake. The guy can't be fired by Biden, all that Sleepy Joe can do is fire the board that appoints him with his cronies and have them fire the guy, The mail trucks that deliver the mail in my town must be from the 1980s I have no idea but they are rusted out rattletraps and an embarrassment, there hasn't been any investment that I can see in the last 2 decades.

When I went to the post office last time they raised rates, the lady behind the counter complained "I have to learn all new rates, and there is nothing extra in my paycheck for it." I have NO IDEA how you fix an institution where that sort of mentality exists. Can you imagine telling your boss in the real world that you want a raise to learn something new ? No words for it.

I decided before Brexit where possible to only post and buy within the UK until (if) life settles down, Royal Mail used within the UK is very good and quick plus easy to insurance.

Like I said where possible I won't be buying or selling out of the UK, less stress but less choice.

Shop local, friends.

i've observed this kind of ping-pong game, it's just ridiculous, luckily i live in a
tiny little town, and my postmistress, whose name is cindy crawford, is always
willing to go the extra mile, intercede, and stop the effing ping-pong....

Today is a Special day for me! The rural mail delivery is set to resume after a 3 week halt due to a "mystery" illness that our carrier came down with. Doesn't seem like much of a mystery to me...........lol
For the last three weeks I've had to make a 16 mile trip to the post office to pick up and ship mail not to mention regular mail that would normally take 2 days taking 3 weeks to arrive.
