So I’ve been looking at the USPS tracking page for a parcel that’s supposed to arrive, and today I found that it said â€œArrival at Unitâ€. Joy, I thought, because it had finally arrived! I went outside only to find…nothing. Shock and horror followed, as I immediately had imaginations of my parcel being stolen or lost.
Then it occurred to me that maybe “Unit” wasn’t *my* unit. Well, yeah. So it turns out that “Unit” in this case actually means a local USPS post office. You’d think that “Unit” would mean apartment, suite, house, or whatever, but no, it does not. Thanks for the really clear delivery advice USPS! It wasn’t the least bit misleading at all.
To my relief, I got my parcel the very next day, and while I’m glad about it, I’m still not sure why USPS doesn’t change “Arrival At Unit” to “Arrival At Facility” or something less misleading.
Oh wells. At least I got my parcel.
