So, in the past six months or so, a lot of times my online shopping results in this:

In which instance, I can no longer track it, and it arrives later than it was supposed to. AS IN, later than the shipping I paid for.

Not that I want higher prices, but if they are cutting costs this is fucking ridiculous. Can I just pay a little more, and get my package when I want? I was supposed to get a package on Wednesday, and it still hasn't come.

Is this trying to throw the USPS a lifeline? What is this? I hate it! Who do I bitch to? I don't think it is in the hands of the retailers I order from because it has been a host of different ones. You can't really bitch to UPS without having an account with them, which I DO NOT HAVE because it's not my account the packages are sent under - it's the retailers' accounts.

ETA: I should clarify, I did contact one sender about this, since it says "as requested by the sender", and they said that they had nothing to do with it.
