July 19,2019 WHERE IS OUR MAIL NO DELIVERY ALL WEEK.7719 eastern Ave Takoma Park


They don’t answer the phone, when they did today May 23 at 3:31 pm. I got a very nasty attitude just to get information about picking up a package. This young lady needs training in customer service and be reminded about where her salary comes from and why Amazon is taking over their business.


I feel like I never get mail anymore, and when I do there is often other apartments included. The problem is, there are only 3 apartments in my building. If I'm getting other people's mail, how do I know mine is not also getting misplaced? It's not as if I can just peak in their box and dig through. What makes this even more bothersome is the fact that every time I see my mail man he is chatting on the phone, and usually he sounds hyperly engaged in conversation. It's no wonder the mail gets mixed up, because our mail man can't save personal and leisure phone calls for after working hours.


Wednesday, March 15. Where is our mail? We haven't had any mail delivered in two days. I know for a fact that I'm due two DVDs from Netflix, mailed on Monday, so I should have something. We need to have a regular carrier for our route. I'm at 401 Beech Avenue, Takoma Park, MD 20912


I am very upset! It is a very rainy day. I came home to two illegible tax documents, sopping wet because they were left half in half out of my mail box. I didn't get much mail, and the box is big enough to accomodate. Do the carriers know so little science that they don't know they created a wick to carry water in to soak the mail? PLEASE TRAIN THEM BETTER! Thank you. Susan Townsend, 8003 Garland Ave, Takoma Park, MD 20912


Since moving into my current apartment, I have had approximately 7 packages go missing that were supposed to be delivered by this USPS. I get excuses every time - they never had my package; there was a different carrier delivering that day; the package wasn't correctly addressed; and many many more. In some cases, the carrier has just flat out delivered my package to the wrong apartment, never to be seen by me again because the people who live in my apartment complex don't have the decency to take it to the apartment it actually belongs to. And yet, the USPS tracking system has said EVERY SINGLE TIME the package has been delivered to my apartment or my mailbox. I can only believe that our mail carrier is simply incompetent. I have lived in my apartment for over 8 months and our mail goes missing at least once a moth, majority of the time never to be correctly returned. My boyfriend has even had important medical documents go missing. It's ABSURD.


Im a bit worried now about this post office considering i paid for something expensive to be shipped to me in pa. My tracking number will not update with any info but it says its shipped out .. im waiting until monday but now im beyomd anxious

"Comments below are not read by postal employees” Indeed? Then, pray tell, if there are problems, what is the point to posting here? I am not just practicing typing, believe it or not.There are in fact big problems.It has rained twice this week. And, for some reason--can’t imagine how--twice this week, including yesterday, 11 Oct 2013, our mail has come to us soggy, and in some cases wet clear through. What an amazing coincidence. We see the carrier (who seems to change daily) carrying a big armload of mail from house to house--with no kind of bag or other shelter for the mail from the rain. Gee, I wonder if there is a link.This includes everything from bills to magazines. In some cases bills and other mail had also in fact been opened. This is particularly intolerable. The address was right, so that excuse fails.This is totally unacceptable. If you want an indication as to why folks far prefer paying bills online, and why the USPS is losing ground to UPS, FedEx and others, you might want to start with the perfectly wretched service we enjoy when it rains.We would also like to know why the carrier constantly changes. A few years ago we had an excellent carrier--for over a year. Why do we no longer have him?


My carrier is constantly on her cellphone while delivering mail to our house. We always know when the mail has arrived due to the random chatter that passes by. This would be fine, except we are constantly getting our neighbors' mail and she rarely takes any outgoing mail that we leave, so we have to always walk down the road to the big mailbox on the corner. :(
