We moved into the Huntingtown Postal area in spring of 2015. Unfortunately, we have had nothing but issues. On Mar 12th I placed a specialized order for invitations for my daughter's birthday party on Apr 26th. By Apr 15th when I had not received them, I contacted the seller. She sent them out to me on Mar 13th. After doing research on her end the post office said they delivered them. I never received those invitations. My mother has had to cancel 2 birthday checks we never received. My son had a birthday on 8 August. My mother sent the check out on July 27th. My mother was about to cancel a third check, when last night August 21st the card was in our mailbox. I have had 6 packages that when I track them it says they have been delivered. 1 I've never received, 3 were delivered within a week after the tracker said it was delivered, 1 arrived in pieces, shattered, and the last one arrived almost 3 weeks after the tracker said it was delivered. My husband and I were in the military and lived all over the US and the world. We have never had as many issues with all of those locations combined including some overseas locations. I don't know what the Huntingtown Post Office issue is, but they've cost me lots of money, unhappy birthday children, bills not received etc... They need some serious training and oversight. This is a serious issue. It's a federal law not to mess with a person's mail, I guess, unless you are the Huntingtown Post Office.
Not Happy Huntingtown P.O. 20639
UPS in Waldorf decided to have USPS deliver a package they were paid to deliver. USPS in Huntingtown said they tried to deliver it on 8/8 and left a delivery notice with instructions. NO DELIVERY NOTICE WITH INSTRUCTIONS WAS LEFT! I called the P.O. at 3:30 PM and was told to hold on (IGNORE), 15 min. later I hung up. At 4:00 PM I called back and was told to hold on (IGNORE), 20 Min Later I hung up. On your tracking site it said they delivery would be on 8/9 before 8PM. I stayed home all day, NO DELIVERY! NO NOTICE! On 8/10 I went to the Huntingtown P.O. And asked to speak with the Post Master. I was told the Post Master was on vacation, when I asked of the return date I was told I don’t know, 1 or 2 weeks not sure. The man at the counter took my paper work went into the back and got my book. The book you were paid to deliver to me. While the Cat is away the Mice will play? Or is this the way your P.O operates all the time?
This is not the first time something like this has happened. 2 or 3 weeks ago same type of a problem with a box of Cigars.
We recently moved to Huntingtown from Chesapeake Beach and boy did the mail service take a plunge in quality. We're at the end of the route (end of the day) and our mail carrier routinely leaves boxes outside against the garage door where it can be rained on. She also crumples up our mail to stuff it in the mailbox around packages that barely fit. Huntingtown could take some lessons from Chesapeake Beach on service.
I live right off Emmanuel Church Road. I do not know the names of the 2 people who deliver our mail, but I just want to say that they do a great job. They are always friendly and say hi. When I have a package that will not fit in the mailbox, they will bring it to the door along with the rest of the mail. I want to make sure that they know they are appreciated.
