I am having Major problems with the Des Plaines post office!
I am a resident of Des Plaines for the last twenty-five years
I had a horrible experience with their small office office located
at Lee Street and Miner. I contacted the Main Post Office
number and a claim was filed. I very much appreciate
the help from the main post office
The problem involved the refusal for a tracking number receipt from
the postal employee. She was very impolite and sarastic
When I mentioned I would contact the main post office
With more sarcasm she gave her name and told me to
"go ahead and call the post office and was laughing
about that!
Now I not received my purchase from E-bay costing
me nearly thirty-five dollars!
According to the tracking number the package was delivered
Thursday November 12th at 3.30 in the afternoon
The mail carrier left the note under the confirmation
the package was left at the porch!
I live in condo in Des Plaines
No porch just the driveway to entry into the building!
The mail was delivered already at around twelve
pm. I do not understand why my package was
delivered again nearly three hours later without
the carrier ringing my doorbell
The supervisor I had already spoken with about the first
incident gave me the number of the Des Plaines
phone number! No one answers that number without
much stress! The wait time for anyone at the main
Des Plaines branch is nearly five to ten minutes
from a rude Des Plaines postal employee!
Des Plaines mail service is usually alright
but not consistent and problems as
mine are always a strong possibility!
