- I'd ordered an item online from Amazon.ca and was following its progress via its Canada Post tracking number. My order left the warehouse in Ontario and arrived at a Canada Post sorting facility, a mere 40-60 minute drive from my address, on the same day -- where it promptly stayed for two weeks. Did it fall behind a counter or something?
- After the Canada Post lock-out ended earlier this year, all I received was junk mail for the first week or so before receiving any legitimate mail.
- Another example: I knew Canada Post had attempted delivery of an order because I had its tracking number. However, when I returned home there was no delivery notice in sight. No biggie, since I was still able to pick up the package at a local post office using the tracking number. The aggravating part? A week after picking up the package, I finally received the failed delivery notice in my mail box.
- At my current residence I receive an inordinate amount of wrong mail -- correct address, incorrect recipients (I assume previous residents). Each time I dutifully write "not at address" on the envelope and send it back to Canada Post. Aggravation? When weeks later I receive the exact same letter, AGAIN. Do I really need to write "not at address" twice? Should I capitalize? Highlighted in nice red ink?

Just as this post title says, sometimes Canada Post can be aggravating.
