I waited all day for the delivery of two very small packages that I had been informed via email would be delivered today. I had been following their progress by the tracking information and it read "Out for delivery" today. No one ever came. My front door was open all day. Now the notation says "Delivery Exception. Animal Interference." That is a lie. My little Pekingese never goes out in the front yard. She also doesn't BITE. I may, however, when this lying mailman finally shows up with my mail. It's clear what happened. He didn't get through all his deliveries, so at 5:00pm he put that notation in the tracking to excuse his incompetence. And I don't appreciate it!!!!!!!!!


Had a vacation hold for 6 days on mail. Went to pick up at on Lexington and they didn't have it nor did the mail man who seemed clueless. So where is my mail for 6 days?


I have paid for a p.o. box because my postman is on his phone and can't pay close enough attention to drop the correct mail where is needs to go.


Unbelievable go into Harry S Truman post office on 32nd St and the line is long and only one working the window and she's not the friendliest person in the word at all, personally I thought rather rude. Now to the problem, some where along the line my package evidently is some where, here's the story, get any e-mail they couldn't deliver it as no one home, that's wrong we were home all day Sunday waiting for the package, notice said left a slip on the door, not so, also said could pick up at post office, go up there and supposedly she looked for it, not found, she says leave your name and number also address, we need to call the person that delivered that day. Thinking he went to the wrong house on 44th St that has same house address as I do, except I live on 44th Terr. Any way to straighten this mess out? Another thing the mail truck sat in front of our house and then he got out and checked in back of the truck and then got in and finally drove off. Seems to me some thing isn't right here. Thanks for listening, Bev
