I have had it with your lack of service. I called last month and the supervisor never returned my call. I’ve had lost packages and mail. I get sick of having someone else’s mail delivered to my house. I’ve talked to Bristol several times. I’m tired of delivering your mail.


I have not received mail for 3 weeks. Tried to call 3 times this morning during business hours. No answer.


Curious as to why our mail has been delivered so late at 8:30 pm on 1/17/17 and 6:30 pm on 1/18/17. Hope this is not becoming the norm.This is not a good work standard.


Keep trying to fax in my stamps by fax form. I was told fax was broke down for over 6 months and last time I was in there I was given a new form and told the fax machine was working now. I work at a fast going business and don't always have time to go stand in line for 30 min just to buy stamps. Please get this fixed.. You shouldn't offer a service if you can't follow through with it.


Why is it that when I try calling the elkhart office on Saturday open hours, no one answers and machine is off?


They never answer any time any day. They need to be fired and hire people that actually do their job, WHICH CONSISTS OF ANSWERING THE GOD DAMX PHONE. LAZY A$S GOVERNMENT PAID FKS.

We are the training route in the city and have a different mailperson everyday.Sometimes they deliver if we are lucky enough but it's not always the right mail or it looks like they have held it for days before delivery.My magazines that I pay for don't come on time and if they do show up they are ripped or torn.I don't know what is happening but they need to get it together.


Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds....if only these words were true. It should say: we lie, we don't care, and will deliver or pick up your mail when and if we please...oh and maybe we will deliver it to the correct address. No mail delivery/pick up today, non yesterday because it was a holiday, and apparently Saturday was out of the question because of the weather. Instead we got this message on our ebay shipment summary for a package we were expecting: Notice Left (Receptacle Blocked)...hhmmm if the "receptacle" was blocked (which it was not) where did you leave the notice???? What a joke. Wish i had a job that i didn't have to do my job and got paid way too much to not do. That's our great government hard at work. And to reply to vvvvvvv apparently anything they want to do is legal. Gets you no where to call and complain or even take time to go in person to get an answer to a simple question. They will just lie to your face to give you the answer you want to hear and get you out the door.


It is 5:40pm Feb. 5 and we have not had mail delivered to our culdesac since 1pm Feb.3. Is this legal?


my mailman hasent delivered in 3 days now, WHATS GOING ON!!!!????

Why you gotta pay 40 bucks to change your address online but can come in and fill out paper for free...Makes no sense,the roads are too bad to be driving that far...
