That damn ineffcieint federal government

got me my passport in 3 weeks. a full week ahead of their estimate. Just like that damn post office getting a priority package across the country in 2 days at 50% of the charge of fedex or UPS. damn damn damn. That private market is always better.

1. some agencies work well , some others really suck trying to work with them

 

Medicare can be tough and confusing with the prescription drug plan they have.
ATF is another one
FDA is one where they take too damn long to release a new drug.
Dept of Agriculture can be Nazis when it comes to natural farmers wanting to sell their product to people that want it.

2. Don't get me started on UPS...

 

when ordering online, I stay away from people who ship UPS. Unless you are willing to pay a premium, the cannot compare to the USPS delivery times.

3. I'll tell you about that inefficient postal service

I shipped six rolls of film to Kansas via USPS on a Wednesday. It reached Kansas on Friday. These guys are closed on weekends so it got to the lab on Monday. They developed it and shipped it on Tuesday. It was in my mailbox in Idaho on Wednesday...and no, I didn't pay for overnight delivery.
