    It might be a good time to wrap it up regarding any future fragrance shipments.

    Looking at it another way, USPS desperately needs the business, so it might be a good time to step it up.

    Also, I doubt the GOP wants to let USPS go under in an election year.

    Continue to do our part - buy more bottles to bring in some business. Then again maybe USPS could work with Amazon in assisting shipments?

    Amazon should step in, but it doesn’t seem like Bezos to do that. Not to mention his animosity for Trump. I have my doubts.

    While I highly doubt the Postal Service would actually shut down per se (Congress would be forced to bail them out, but most likely *just* enough to allow for continuance of operations), I agree that they need our business now more than ever as their revenue is 100% derived from postage. Holding back on shipments in fear of their tenuous financial status ironically will only make it more dire.

    I read that as "Buy more frags!"

    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    As would I: but then, this entire pandemic has consisted of almost everyone being very, very surprised.

    I wouldn't presume it has anything to do with the GOP when the USPS has been financially failing for years. It's not a political issue. That's not the association I would make, nor would anyone I know.

    I’m not blaming the GOP, I’m just acknowledging that they’re in political power and are unlikely to let the USPS fail at this time.

    Though not able access to the link/site either, having incidentally received a fragrance delivery today, have applied at least some of the measures described on the other thread quite extensively.

    Including, among others but not limited to, almost literally drenching the outer package in which the fragrances were shipped, but also the mask and gloves worn while receiving this fragrance, in hand sanitizing gel (and even having considered, though ultimately decided against it, to repeat the same procedure with disinfecting spirit).

    Few to no vintage scents were included in this shipping, but with the current situation might
    consider the procedure especially in the case of vintage ones.
