Received a tracking email that a package I NEEDED today was to be delivered. Didn't come with normal mail. Called Palatine PO and told that the package is in Forest Park-email by USPS says it's on its way to my house for delivery-I state I am reading an email that says it's to be delivered today. Told I am wrong and don't know what I am talking about-very rude, very inefficient and when I asked if I could pick it up in Forest Park was told "I have no clue, goodbye". Unbelievable!


Complaint: For several years the postal deliveries have been made by walking across my front yard, thru my landscaping to the front porch mailbox, creating a path during dry and rainy (mushy) season resulting in my having to redo my lawn every year. I have made personal request to almost every mail person and have been told it is a training route but that notes have been written to correct this issue - this is an issue for me and as of today 11-18-2016 it is I need to contact the Post Master General for this simplest of requests - will the Post Office in Palatine, IL want to pay for landscaping fees or a consolation fee to me so I can continue undoing what the Post Office personnel continue trample? This has become distracting and disconcerting at this point - please advise!
