The phone number for the Silver Spring Post office - 301-608-1300 doesn't work right now. And why isn't there a place to put comments that the postal employees DO read (header here says "comments are not read by postal employees"). Who reads this?


The Silver Spring Post Office has lost two shipments out of four to my home address in the last month. The shipping company utilized UPS Sure Post where UPS drops off the package with the local post office which then delivers the package to the delivery address. In my case the USPS office in Silver Spring has managed to misplace items twice which had been provided to them by UPS for delivery. The Silver Spring Post Office been useless in trying to resolve this.


We have been having this problem for at least a year. It is not unusual to get mail for someone else. On March 23rd we received 6 envelopes for 2 families in the neighborhood. Sometimes we receive mail for people not in our neighborhood. This month I received 2 letters from my insurance referring to March events. Then I received a letter from same company referring to events in Feb. It is annoying to receive other peoples mail. I am even more concerned worrying about where my letters may go before they get to me. I worry that I may not receive all of my mail.
