It's may 13th, almost 7 pm. My food donation has been sitting under my mailbox since 7:30 this morning. Is someone still going to pick it up? Or are the hungry going to remain hungry? The Lombard PO is already closed, or I would deliver it there. Should I leave it out for Monday pickup?
My business is RIGHT NEXT DOOR to the post offices. My horror story of lousy mail delivery has been going on for years! The building has about 6 businesses and now, MY mailbox has become the DUMP all the mail for the building spot. Probably because it's the easiest one to see when entering the building. I'm sick of excuses like "substitute" carrier, etc. Is there anyone working there who really cares?
It's been 5 days since we have had mail delivered. If we are lucky enough to get our mail, it is usually opened and taped shut. Also does the mail thug have to talk on his phone, wear his shorts around his knees and slam our mailbox shut at sometimes 9 o'clock at night.
Every few days, we are getting a replacement mail delivery person dressed in extreme casual/thuggish clothing with a gang-banger style hat, cocked and backwards. This is a far cry from standard USPS uniforms, and quite frankly, such a display of unprofessionalism causes one to think that our private, personal, and important mail delivery is in jeopardy. The post office standards should not allow this type of disrespect to the community and require the individuals it selects with the big responsibility of mail delivery to appear credible and minimally professional.
I also live at 22nd and Finley. The mail service here has been terrible for several months. I haven't had any mail delivered since last Friday. When I do get mail it has been delivered between 7pm and 8pm. I think we all need to make the Postmaster General aware of the terrible service in this area. This is an incorporated area, so I don't buy the 'rural route' excuse!
I live at the corner of Finley & 22nd street. Called to see what was going on because I had only received mail once in the past week. They said this is considered a 'rural route' and they have had a number of illnesses and injuries so they have not been able to make all their mail drops to the rural routes. So much for the whole "Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds" thing. Apparently now it's "we'll get to you when it's convenient". I've just lived here for 7 months and this is the first time I ever in my life remember just not getting mail delivery for no apparent reason. Before this I lived in Downers Grove for 7 years and our mail delivery was like clockwork...California before that - same thing - even with their horrible financial situation they ALWAYS delivered the mail.
i know this weather is exceptional,and i hate to complain but..we are just not getting our mail.we have lived at our location 208 e harrison rd,for over 30 years and i can count on one hand the times we have not gotten some mail.last fri 2/14 we received mail.and then not again until wednesday 2/19.i know monday was a holiday so strange we never recieved mail that tue.now it is 7:22pm on thursday and no mail again.we also have our lombardian mailed to us and always recieve it on wednesday..have not gotten it yet.scares me to think of where it is winding up at...what is going on?
Sounds like you are actually doing better than us. I live on the 400 block of S. Lodge Ln and since last Monday (2/10) I have only had mail delivery 2/15 and 2/17 and only a total of 6 pieces of mail. Prior to that our mail delivery was after 7pm each nigh for the past few months. Something is falling apart with this post office.
