    MAIL RANT!

    When did mail delivery and pick up become rocket science? Had outgoing mail (bills) like anyone else in the neighborhood. They get clipped outside the mail slot. Clearly visible. Guessing we had no mail, so why bother to look if we have outgoing? No that's not part of the job description. GOOD GRIEF!

    Re: MAIL RANT!

    My mail carrier will not wait 15 seconds for a FedEx truck to move if it is in the way and will simply take off without delivering the mail at all. I personally observed this last month.

    My neighbors still put mail in their boxes for pick up and I have also seen the mail carrier blatantly skip past them and not pick up the mail. For this reason, I just go to the Post Office to mail anything


    I also subscribe online to USPS Informed Delivery and get to see a photo of what mail I have coming. It’s the only thing good about the postal service

    Don't you have a red flag on your mailbox?

    And yet, they needed a raise, so postage costs even more for less service.

    I ordered some detailing products from the UK only to have them sit in a warehouse 15 minutes drive away and the courier said they don't deliver in my area.

    I paid $160 for postage

    Most of the time the mail carrier completely ignores the red flag. That’s how bad the service is

    Correct. Stamps went up last Sunday. No red flag here either. In house mail slot.

    Re: MAIL RANT!

    I have had 6 of my last 14 Amazon deliveries (Non-detailing products) lost by the USPS. All had to be reordered and reshipped.

    In addition, I live at 408 West Street. I get mail for 408 Front street, 408 Fifth Street, and the like.

    I also get mail for 428 West street which is not that hard to believe since it is one digit off. But couple that with all of the other F-up's, and it equals ineptitude at best.

    The US Postal Service is becoming synonymous with the term "ASS CLOWNS".
    It is no coincidence that man's best friend cannot talk.

    Gee, I thought that kind of incompetence was just around here.

    I must say that Informed Delivery feature puts me a little at ease so I know what mail is supposed to be coming but I agree, USPS is the worst!

    I’m going to get worried the next time I order from Amazon though…

    Had a friend who use to work for post office. The are short of workers and all carriers are delivering up to l double.
