Once again the North Bend WA 98045 Post Office failed to comply with the state governor's directive to lower its US Flag on May 17, 2016 for a soldier who died in Iraq. The North Bend Post Office has been negligent in lowering its flag in the past as many locals have noticed.

I live behind it. I have complained at least 5 times in the last year to them about the noise they make. It is 4:22am. All of the people have started arriving to work and things are being loaded and unloaded. It sounds like a war zone. You would think that they would build some sort of sound wall between us and them. I have to listen to employees standing right behind the fence talk about their personal problems, some things that I don't think myself nor my neighbors really should have to hear. I have to smell their cigarettes as they smoke right behind me, listen to their foul language. They are a horrible thing to have to live behind. They need to locate themselves a little further out since they can't seem to do anything about the noise or maybe they really just don't care.
They suck, the Asian lady that works there is a BULLY. she called the cops on me when Amazon didn't bring husbands b'day presents to my front door like I asked them to. North Bend Po are too laysey to walk up my driveway to my front door ??. they are the devil.
