Belong to a coffee club. Every month I pay for two bags of coffee and prior to COVID I'd get the email on Friday, Saturday the tracking number would be emailed, and by Wednesday I'd be good. Here lately I'm lucky to get the coffee in a week.. My gripe I'm out of coffee.. It's not the roasters fault.. It's the post office.. They only pick up so much at a time...

But hey let's vote by mail what could go wrong.

COVID19 has become the government excuse to slack off everywhere. The U.S. Mint is way behind, it took 7 months to finally get my IRS refund and they got the damned return before COVID, and the post office not only is slower but my neighborhood no longer has a clue as to when the mail will be picked up. Some days its 9 AM and one evening it came at 6:30 PM and none of them were heavy mail days. Our mothers both registered for absentee and both got their ballots the day after the election. The problem was the mail left Opelika (7 miles away) went to Montgomery where it stayed for days, and then came after the election. Trust the post office with mail in voting? Only a foreign, drunken, desperate, fool would do so.

I heard rumors that the mail sorters delayed ballots going to what they perceived to be primarily middle class voting zip codes. Don't know if it was true but it is certainly possible. Mail in? Hell no!
Post offices in Montgomery are horrible period. I found that out living in Prattville.

Two out of three mailmen are Demoncraps. I know a few of them and they vote for the Demons.

RE: What grinds your gears?
So I live near Penn State. Before classes started they made all students sign a "contract" to do a list of things and if caught in violation they were to be suspended...

The first week one of the dorms had parties back to back. Nothing was done. Everything was in violation of said contract. Same with about 2-3 frat parties.

COVID cases have spiked. In the whole time when everything was "shut down" our county experienced maybe 200 cases total, which isn't bad. The last 2 weeks we've exceeded 300 cases.

What's grinding my gears is nothing is being done by the university, but the local schools here are closing again, which frustrates me because my kid thrives in that setting. The online stuff isn't enough and doesn't do anything... But yet my taxes are going to pay for a full school year whether he goes or not.
