I run a small online business and I use the USPS for all my shipping. I probably mail 100 packages a week, and have been doing so for years.— Cassie LaBelle (@CassieCeleste) July 23, 2020
I don't think most people understand the scope of what has been happening over the last month or so in terms of delays.
