A Post Office Rant.....

Recommended Posts

I checked the tracking number today on a package, figured it be here tomorrow. The tracking # says its in the town over and has been sorted but nothing about out for delievery. I know that I could check it again in a hour and it would say out for delievery. But I just picked up the phone to see what they could tell me. Man was a that a was of my minutes. Lady picks up, I explain and tell her I have the label # here. Figuring it would help someone look. She says all delieverys are out for the day and if its been sorted it SHOULD be out with one. I asked her if she could just look and see if its been sent out and she said no.

I rember a time when places like this was eager to help you out. I know the recession has costed alot of places cut backs. There is a post office here in my town and in the one over. Rumors are all over the place that my towns might shut down and everything just run out of the one. Maybe if its true she's on the cutting block. Heck, recently I was told you was no longer allowed to arrive at the PO before the deleivery guys are gone and pick up your own mail. On top of that our mail runs from anywhere between 12 to 4 depending on who's on our route on a given day. Id make a formual complaint but the one guy that does get my mail on a consitant time is also a old friend from my childhood, sandlot days.

And on another note whats up with the DMV setting up the phones for automated service only!! Cant not get a live person to pick up, tried asking to speak to someone pressing 0 nothing. Nothing worse than having to go in there sit and wait hoping you brought enough $$$ with ya.

My mailman is terrible. The following has happened a fews times but I'll describe the lastest.

A couple weeks ago my tracking number said out for delivery, so I stuck around the house waiting for the package because I had to sign for it. Also my mailbox is in a group of mailboxs that are around the corner from my house. So my wife comes home while I'm waiting and she said the mailman was just at the boxes. So I went to the boxes and found a note from the usps saying they tried to deliver the package at my door but no one was there to sign for it and I would have to go pick it up at the post office.

I then called the post office and they said they are required to come to my door for delivery attempt but they get complaints all the time that this doesn't happen. So I made sure to nicely complain.

Then a couple days later when I had another package coming I heard something get thrown at my door so I opened it to see what the heck was going on and there was my package. I'm just glad it wasn't fragile.

This isn't the place to air your disputes. Take it up with the USPS.
