Post Office know longer answer Telephones at local offices.
i drive to Altadena Post Office, Clerk (Counter) refuse to put Letter in
Postal Box at his location said it has to go thru system. When i worked for Postal (Chatsworth) we Cancelled Stamp then put Mail in P.O. Box. I can't believe the Postal Clerk can possibly be more WRONG in doing his Job Delivering Mail to the P.O. Box at his location.Young Asian guy who seem to make his own Rules to follow.


I live at 2700 N. Lake in Altadena
The postman doesn't close the gate or maybe because it's wrought iron gate and when he slams it
It doesn't catch. Could you please ask him to slow down and close it.
Thank You
