Default Anyone else notice the post office doing odd things?

So the mail seems to be taking forever these days, ok with Covid and the holidays that seems about right. But I took a look at some of my shipments and noticed a lot off odd movements. Its one thing to be sitting and not moving, but why are my packages taking long vacations to far away places. I livei Hatboro, Pa. just outside Philly and will drop off my pre-paid pacakges at post offices near home.Heres a list of where these packages went...

It's not just the USPS either. My niece lives in a rural area and has a fairly long driveway that goes through a field and then some woods. In the past week the Amazon driver has left packages in the field, on a grassy knoll, and tied in a bag to a tree!

I'm in NY and I've been waiting on a package from Michigan for the last week and a half. I checked the tracking yesterday and it was in Orlando,FL. Today it's on it's way to NJ.

It's not just you OP.

I didn't think it was just me. Being late or slow is one thing. But why the ridiculous trips to other states? It makes it look like thats the reason it is late. I'd rather my package just sit in one place and believe that there is a back up. Not travel to several different states and make it look like its late because of incompetance!

Im not an expert on how USPS processes mail, but my deduction is it might be that certain stations that are over capacity may be offloading new mail to other stations even if in other states where there is processing capacity.
Or maybe they are just putting whatever they can on the first wagon, truck, bicycle, plane, train or automobile regardless of destination just to get the stuff out the door.

Update, I finally got the longest delayed package. It was mailed to me on November 23rd, no tracking but I saw the post office receipt with the date. It arrived December 24th. Was happy to get it.

I purchased cards 3 weeks in a row from the same seller in California. The cards from the first 2 weeks show that pre-shipment info sent USPS awaits item. The item purchased this week shows shipment received acceptance pending, in transit.
I'm confident that the seller has the items shipped. The USPS is just a bit messed up right now.

I sent 2 packages to Florida on the same day, one First Class and one Priority Mail. The FC was delivered in 3 days, the Priority took over 2 weeks. Theres no rhyme or reason here.

Like I said, I was not as mad about the time it took, but why the side trips? Thats just adding time.

Shipping is a mess right now. Here's one that is now over two weeks into a journey that is only 165 miles.

It got within 25 miles of my house before taking a second tour around New England after Christmas.

What is wrong with this system (USPS) ? Can't they just separate the mail into zip codes that start with (0,1,2, etc) and the mail would start in that direction ? I have mail going from TX to NJ to Detroit( stays there 7 days), back out east then back to Michigan etc. etc. What kind of sorting system are they using ? I think Amazon should take over anything that is not a letter ! If they can sort by region why can't the USPS ?

For some mail, everything works perfectly. It gets there in 2 to 4 days. For other mail, it makes a trip to the twilight zone.
Thankfully, the bottom line is that almost everything is eventually getting to where it is supposed to be going. I did have one item that seems it got lost, unless person I sent it to was fibbing. It did have no tracking. Thankfully, it wasn't a very expensive item.
