Does priority mail count the day you ship as one of the three?
Does anyone know if priority mail counts the day you ship as one of the 2-3 if you get it to the PO in the early morning?
I had shrimp shipped Monday morning and they didn't come today, which surprises me because every other time I get a priority shipment sent on Monday it comes on Wednesday? Or am I just lucky and get it in "2" days most of the time?

The day you ship does not count. With most average size and smaller post offices, there is only one truck out a day to the main sorting facility and it leaves the post office at 5:00 PM every night. So for those post offices it does not matter whether you get the package to the post office early or late in the day. For larger post offices, like the one across the street from where I work, it services such a huge population that they send two trucks every day to the main sorting facility. One truck leaves at 1:00 PM and the other at 5:00 PM. I always try to make the 1:00 truck only because they will get sorted at the main facility a bit earlier than the mass of 5:00 trucks headed there. But then from the sort facility, no matter what time they arrived that day, I believe they all head to their respective airports for the same flights regardless of what time of the day they get taken to the post office. In Newark, NJ, where my boxes head for planes, those planes leave the same time every night.......somewhere around 10-11 PM. So the first day you take them and mail them is a sorting and routing day.
The post office is taking longer to deliver some packages. They've cut back on staff and reduced all overtime hours and some regular hours a long time ago. I can't wait until they stop Saturday delivery
