Evidently the standard exam for letter carriers is now non existent. Chronic mis-deliveries and and no deliveries. "Sorry Mr Creditor. but my letter carrier never got the check to me that was sent out and should of been received this past week


we received a bag in the mail for the postal food drive and put it back, out along with several of our neighbors, with food items in it, but it was never picked up by our mail carrier. If the postal carrier doesn't want to be a team player then don't clutter my mail with the bag.


I am very concerned as I do a lot of online ordering and I am not receiving all of my orders. One day another lady and I both had a key to the same box for packages!! I don't know how that can happen. Also the locks are EXTREMELY hard to open on the boxes for packages. This last week the key actually broke off in the lock as I had to jiggle and jiggle and jiggle it trying to get it to open. I have left several messages in my box to the postman explaining the problem. Please advise me about all of these very concerning problems. Thank you.
