I took the day off because I was having a package delivered to my house. Rush postage so I could get it today. I was home all evening and the postal person made no attempt to leave the package, no horn blowing, no door bell ringing nothing...yet for some stupid reason....as several times before...she made no attempt to deliver my package. NO wonder the postal service is in such turmoil. She was just to lazy to either get out of her vehicle, or stick the package in my mail box or lay it on the porch it was not that big a package. I have railing and a gate on my porch, just so packages can be left without the neighbors dogs running off with my packages. It also keeps anyone from seeing packages from the street. (( Strange on several occasions she has left my packages laying in the yard when all she has to do is lay it over the short gate on the porch)). I need this package delivered on time ...I had to pay for postage to get it delivered...so make your employees do their jobs, or hire competent people who will!!
I live next to the post office, and work from home. Virtually every time I receive a package or letter that requires a signature, the carrier puts a notice in my mail box and I have to come to the post office the next day to pick up the item. I've spoken to the customer service person working the counter three times about this, and have even suggested that the carrier can leave my item at the post office, instead of on his truck, so that I can walk over to the post office and pick up the package the same day - versus having to wait until the next day to get my package. One time, they must have called the carrier because he came back to my house to deliver the package. I work from home and my wife is a house wife. We are almost always home. The carrier never comes to the door to try to deliver the package. I have to wait a day to pick up my package virtually every time.
