"We sincerely apologize for your experience.  After an investigation,
we could not determine why the First-Class Mail piece took 20 days to
arrive at its destination.  That is not a normal occurrence.  We do
not know why there was a delay.  The normal service standard for
First-Class Mail from Pennsylvania to Washington would be
approximately 5 days.  Again, we apologize that we are unable to
provide a reason for this delay."

But of course, they'll still charge full rate and surcharges ... !

Five days normal delivery time seems long for first class mail. But what
surcharges are you talking about?

I had a bill from my dentist right here in town that took two weeks to
get to me a couple year ago.

"First-Class Mail : Estimated delivery time is two to three days."

Source USPS:

The difference between the "estimated delivery time" and the "normal service
standard" is interesting! Of course, the "approximately" and the "Guaranted
= No" allows for anything in between and outside any limits.

Shape/size, non machinable.

Yeah, well was it TRACKED? This was!

Main point is that two sendings, one Media, one First, the first left
a week before the media and arrived almost a week after!

10 oz on the first and 4# on the media, but it got better service.

Wrong guess, I did read your quote from USPS, and when answering I resumed
it. Because you didn't leave it in your last posting the context got lost.

I repost your quotation below to show that there is no much difference
between both quotations, each of them avoiding the USPS responsibility for
the delays of the First-Class Mail.

"We sincerely apologize for your experience.  After an investigation,
we could not determine why the First-Class Mail piece took 20 days to
arrive at its destination.  That is not a normal occurrence.  We do
not know why there was a delay.  The normal service standard for
First-Class Mail from Pennsylvania to Washington would be
approximately 5 days.  Again, we apologize that we are unable to
provide a reason for this delay."
