Our mail carrier determined that our house was vacant and stopped delivering mail. Idk what gave him that idea besides the cars, lights, trash cans. I have 3 jobs and now have to take off work to get get my mail, and am I ever going to see that $ again, nope. I am so beyond furious I can't see straight. Doesn't matter talking to them. I have never received such piss poor service in my entire life. I can't wait to move.
This post office delivers mail to me. I have experienced some of the most damaged mail I have ever seen. They continuously shove things into the mail box that do not fit. They often rip and tear envelopes, and packaging. The stuff things into my mailbox that come out in a wadded up ball. Most of the time the ball of paper is just ads, and coupons. I don't ever really ask for all the ads and coupons, however they come anyway. I find it appalling to destroy other mail, because they seem mad at the world about delivering junk mail. The other thing worth mentioning; I have lived here in this area now for 8 years. Not once have I received my mail service the same time two days in a row. They seem to come and go when they please. I'm not even speaking of an hour our two hour difference. This is a vast difference from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and any time in between. I live in a large apartment complex. When I first moved in I noticed a "no parking, postal service only from 10-3". I thought that was a very large time span to allow delivery. No they have just painted white paint over the sign and wrote with permanent marker, "10-6". It is very frustrating to not have dependable delivery. I can never make a plan based on any payment or checks I should receive in the mail, as I don't know if they will even arrive before the bank closes. And if they arrive prior to bank close, it will most likely be after the bank has changed to the following business day for processing. I can't believe how terrible the service is provided. I would guess this is why the USPS is going out of business basically and keeps reducing their staff. I myself will stick with FedEx. Or the always convenient and easy e-mail.
I just moved into a house that we are renting. We got this nice little note in our mailbox that says "List All Names To Receive Mail". Now I've lived in Florida 30 years and have never had one of these at any house I've EVER lived in. Written on it says "No Names = No mail" and the thank you is crossed out on the bottom of the form. It wants me to write ALL the names of who may receive mail here and the address and stick it back in the mailbox. Is this even legal? Do I HAVE to fill this out. In my opinion it's none of their darn business and this form was just RUDE.
Dana, It's not rocket science. And yes it is perfectly legal.
If you last name is Williams, they will only deliver mail addressed to Williams. They make a note in the sorting office and also in your mail box. Think of it as a last check to ensure a temp delivery guy gets the right mail in the right box. It also stops you getting mail for Brown, which would cause you to freak out and complain on this Non US Postal website.
Your name & address is public record (as you'll find out at election time)
Just because they didn't ask you 30 years ago, doesn't mean they can't ask you today, and think of it as betterment.
if this is all that you have to complain about, chill out and relax before you Stroke out.

Was waiting on a package, found out that it was delivered to the incorrect address, came to the post office was told that all of the supervisors were busy & that it might take up to 20 or 30 minutes for a supervisor to see me!!!
Gosh, shock, horror. You had to wait to see a supervisor, awww poor you. Think of it this way. He/She was busy working doing something important, rather sat in an office doing sweet FA waiting for you to complain. Or where you expecting them to drop everything and rush over to you. And what would your complaining to them, having to listen to you whine for at least 10 mins plus another 10 for making you wait. When what's done is done, mistakes are made, they handle millions of pieces of mail a day, one or two a likely to get misplaced. You complain to make yourself feel better, not a supervisor that had nothing to do with the error feel crappy and offer a fake apology for you to come running back here and whine all over again.

Tried to call post office and No Answer. Wanted to complain about the service I have been receiving as well as my neighbors. We use to have a Great postal person Dan, and he retired. These young kids do not care how they deliver mail or they cannot read addresses. I mailed my rent check on November 25, my landlord never received it. My neighbor mailed 3 bills on November 25, and she incurred late fees because they never received her payments. I just had my neighbor bring me a letter from the IRS that was very important information I needed. The address Clearly states my correct address. I swear these younger people just don't care!!!!!
The worst postal service I have ever confronted in my entire life. I made a phone call to the office stating I did not want them spamming me with junk mail the way they do and they said they did not care and that I have no property rights. They will send whatever they feel like if it's addressed to my address. Which is a form of solicitation. In the United States constitution it states each and every citizen has a right to own property. I believe it's being more than infringed upon with these people stating we haven't any rights regarding what gets sent to OUR PROPERTY. Despicable human beings. The manager was whom I spoke with on the phone and he was rude as can be and then hung up on me.
Jens, The PO does not have the power to censor your mail for you. They have their work cut out for them. If each citizen like you and me started to instruct them on how to handle our mail, even if they were allowed to selectively reject or accept mail on our behalf (which they are not), they would need to increase their staff a great deal. The way you avoid junk mail is by contacting the sender.

The correct way to stop soliciatations by mail is to register online (they have snail mail options too) at www.consumer.ftc.gov You can stop unsolicited phone calls, emails as well as the snail mail. Good luck

I was at this post office this morning, where I received very cold and robotic service. The employees here look miserable and seem like they are annoyed to be interacting with customers. Let's change this demeanor please, there are plenty of people who would kill to have your job and actually smile about it.
