This post office is incompetent. How hard is it to put a damn slip in a PO Box that states, hey you have a package here. Glad it wasn't anything of dire importance. The lady on the phone today was rude and cried to my dad, that I was mean to her. Damn straight I was, the package had been sitting there 19 damn days. If you can't do your job right, get a new job.


You are all correct they do not care about the customer and i do not know how they have jobs because they do not do them and if they do do them incorrectly i had a package and it said it was delivered and ready for pick up on the ups tracking site but they would not get my package for me that i paid for until tomorrow because they dont sort through that stuff until the next day and when i asked why her response was thats just the way we do it because i have to run the front and by the way there was no one at the front at this time so because they are lazy and do not want to do their jobs i have to wait until its conveinent for them to get a package i paid for again very sad...


Today is 1 May 2017. I received 5 letters post marked 8 March 2017. I'm assuming one of my neighbors received my mail and dropped it in my mail box. This would NOT have happened if the postman delivered the mail to the address on the envelope. How hard is it to deliver the mail to right address? This is sad...


Please stop flying the US flag in a manner that is very disrespectful. Your US Flag (which seems very dirty by the way) is flown all night without a light. The flag should be raised and lowered everyday or you should get a dedicated light for it. Please show our flag the respect it deserves.


I'm glad I'm not the only one with complaints. I wonder how they keep their jobs. I have my name, my son's name and a sister who came temporarily on the inside of the lid and I would get others mail. Even put ONLY!! And still get others. Talked to one still get others.I need to apply for their job!


We haven't received mail in over two weeks now due to the snow. A call to the post office indicated that we aren't the only ones, but the unsafe delivery conditions don't allow for them to deliver to our box. We live on Groton Road and have asked repeatedly if we could move our box to our side of the street for safer conditions for not only ourselves but the driver. Apparently they prefer to have their driver stop at the crest of a hill halfway around the inside of a corner than from our side, which is on the outside of the bend. Even worse, the driver drives past our house on our side of the road and then turns around in order to access our box across the street.Now we are required to remove 30 feet of snow from the approach and departing sides of our mailbox for delivery to resume. Not sure who has driven down Groton Rd lately, but there is no possible way for us to move that much snow.


So here is my real disappointment. When asked why mail had not been delivered for weeks on end, I received an answer as if I was bothering the Postal Employee, and how dare I question their decision?. It was much less about the failure of delivery and it immediately became a contest of wills. The Postal Employees (2 of them) each failed to identify themselves and I got the first name of one only because he was called to the front by his name. I still do not know if he was the Postmaster or the Janitor.
Even more disturbing was the admission by this employee "Andy" that he had been on the street a week ago and confirmed that the road was passable "on only one day".
Why then was the mail not delivered on the one day?
He did not have an answer to that.
If this employee "Andy" was on the street looking to see if it was safe to use, why could ne not put into the mail boxes a notice stating that delivery was suspended due to unsafe conditions? Why were the residents left to "assume something was wrong after no mail was received for two weeks?"
Clearly this "Andy" was there, he could have easily and with little effort taken the step to avoid this entire ugly episode. The fact that he did not speaks volumes about where the priority is with respect tot he modern day postal worker, and the volumes are not positive.
Notwithstanding the fact that every resident on the street had NO difficulty navigating the road (with all manner of vehicles I might add), this individual "did not share my opinion" and was apparently entirely nonplussed about his and the postal office's failure to even be concerned over the issue.
EVEN IF it was unsafe, and EVEN IF I agreed that - it was their lack of concern or even interest in the issues their "clients" were experiencing. They just did not care. I don't know if this complacency is the result of their secured government jobs or the fact that their jobs are essentially protected because of the government's monopoly on home delivery of daily mail or if they are just uncaring individuals.
No matter what the reason it is unacceptable in the private sector and would not be tolerated. It is a sad situation that it is tolerated in Government.


We haven't got mail delivered in 10 days because the mail truck can't make a right turn off the road because of snow, Really imagine if you turned around and went straight up the road. Just another example of how government employees could care less about the people who pay their salary. If the postal service was run by the " private sector " where you produce or get out it would be delivered no matter what it took.


I have not gotten my mail deliver in 4 days. We went out of our way to shovel extra space around our mail box thinking that it was too hard to get to. We always seem to be having this problem when there is any type of weather. I don't know how they are running that place, but there are bills and tax information just hanging around in limbo somewhere.


The shirley post office is constantly losing my mail. I complained so much that I get a slip with my mail stating that my mail has been accurately verified, and im still missing packages... one package im missing was supposed to be delivered yesterday, was attempted to be delived 20 minutes later, and the postal person even took the time to leave an non secure location/undeliverable slip at the wrong house, and during the writing of the slip at the wrong house they STILL didnt take the time to read the package address and see they were in the wrong location.... Ironically my postal labels were printing faint, so the postmaster at the office asked me to change my ink cart's which I ordered new ones, and this was the package they misdelivered.....
