What the...?! What do I do about this?!?

It was sent priority mail which to me means it shouldn't have gotten stolen in their possession, right? Who do I need to go to or what in any professional opinion (or not) should/can be done about this?

It was not necessarily stolen. The USPS uses automated sorters in the majority of their BMC hubs.

file a complaint to your postmaster in your local post office. I don't think the post office will do anything about your loss unless the package was insured.

1. Let the sender know what happened. 2. File a complaint with the postmaster general in your area. 3. The sender should also file a complaint with the postmaster general. Talk to the folks at your local post office about this, and they will show you how to go about filing a complaint with the postmaster general.
