It seems to me if the mail man looses or forgetes your package they simply make up a boldface lie and try to place the blame on you. They say they couldn't get to your mailbox or whatever they can lie about and pass the blam to you. Be honest and take responsibility and I will be reasonable but lie and I will not be nice. I will be calling and finding out why they lie when they cant do their jod!
I called this post office today about a passport renewal. Was told they are open until 4:30 pm but for passports the last person has to be there no later than 3 pm. Drove from Semmes, in Western Mobile County, to Daphne and arrived at 2:30 pm and the Post Office was closed??? Was told they were "shorthanded and had to close". Called back to talk with the person I talked with today two hours ago and he said - yeah someone went home sick today so they had to close early - personnel issues. I told him I had just called at 12:30 pm and should have been told that before we drove the distance to get there to be told to "come in tomorrow". If I had not just called within 2 hours to confirm they were there and this could be done I would not be so upset. If you are young and having to pay for the gas for your car, this adds up. This is beyond rude and inconsiderate. I was not even told "I'm sorry" from the person I talked to 2 hours prior. All I was told was "we had personnel issues today and that they will reopen tomorrow at 10." I will be writing our Congressman and reporting this - this is dishonest and uncaring.
Scheduled a pickup online to ship out over a hundred dollars worth of eBay products. Put them on the porch and went to work. Came back at 7:00 and they were still sitting there. They could have been stolen. Making it worse, I got an email saying "request to pick up package successful," so the carrier lied. Completely unacceptable.
