Welcome to the Hardcore Husky Forums. Folks who are well-known in Cyberland and not that dumb.
The Bright Side of COVID-19
is that it is providing me with an almost daily opportunity to demonstrate to my kids that the free market beats the government any day of the week.
Cases in point:
1. Ordered a framed picture of school stuff for one of my kids back in like, September. It took what it took to put it together, but it has been sitting at the Post Office in Pawtuckett, RI for over two months. Apparently they've got the crud and just can't work. No warning. Just not working. Still getting paid, I'm sure. Still waiting.
2. Paid the special freight for expedited passport renewal for one of my kids. Over $200 bucks. Did this in early November. Expedited is 4 to 6 weeks. Guess what? PP office got it on January 6th. Again, the post office.
My kids were like, "Don't lose it. It's COVID, Dad. They can't help it." I asked them, "So how long does it take when you order more of your Lulu Lemon stuff to get here?
Fed Ex, UPS, etc. find a way. The PO? Literally lets packages sit. It's their entire fucking business and this is what they do. I hate to say it, but Trumpf was right about that one.
So when the DMV can't do their work, they schedule appointments out until forever from now and just have the state change the rules. If your license expired after March 1, 2020, it's automatically been extended for 90 days. Can't work? Change the rules.
Private sector can't do that; so they find a way to make it fucking work.
