>>Question: What do you get when you ask a US postal slug to deliver
>> a 2-day "priority" package containing live plants?
>>Answer: 1) Dead plants
>> 2) Aggravated people waiting for plants
>> 3) Wasted money (postage)
>> 4) All of the above
>>Yep, you guessed it, the correct answer is 4 -- all of the above!

It's not just 2 day priority mail. I send a first class
letter from Palo Alto to Daly City, a distance of about
30 miles, and it took one week. However a letter mailed
from Daly City to San Jose, a distance of about 50 miles,
took only 3 days.

Tomorrow I'm dropping by my local central post office to
ask the postmaster what the problem is. Others should do
the same.
