I sent a package last Wednesday and it said it arrived in Des Moines on October 5th and it still has not reached its destination I think my package is stuck somewhere

Every time I send a package and it has to go through Des Moines, I cringe. It seems like they disappear. I can see the tracking number made it there and then it is stuck there for days. What's wrong with you people?

I have never seen such an outrageous operation. We received a damaged package that was sent by your priority mail and the package was in shreds and half the contents missing. It took me over an hour to reach a live person on the phone. Then I was told I must file a claim on line. I guess I am forced to no longer use your services and also to write my congresswoman and senator to encourage them to defund this operation and turn it over to private industry where someone is accountable for their actions.
