I’ve been trying to contact this branch for 2 days and can’t seem to get through. Which also means terrible customer service. My package is basically lost and it was last noted with this post office.

I was recently standing in a long line of mostly impatient, rude and multi ethnic people in the El Cajon office. It seems that our nation is not "assimilating" very well anymore and one wonders when the lifeboat will sink. It was very refreshing to observe Veronica efficiently, tirelessly and graciously handling the grumpy and confused crowd. Give her a raise. But then, people like her use their God given talents regardless of the pay. At least she deserves a little praise.

My package was tossed onto a shelf or conveyor belt, was almost falling off - but the employee went on to the next customer without correcting this and now my package is lost. I also could not understand the employee's english.
