The Ridgeland, MS Post Office is rather inconsistent in:
- Handling "mail on hold," i.e. how it is managed at the end of the hold period
- Delivering mail to the wrong addresses
- Delivery time varies between late morning and dusk
- Today my mail was delivered to a neighbor and his mail was delivered to me.
Our Mail on Pecan Park does not get here till late afternoon. It's 4:00pm and we still do not have our mail. On Saturday we get it before noon. What is going on? Maybe we need the carrier on Saturday too deliver during the week also.
Please allow me to commend my postman. I regret that I do not know his name. He delivers our mail in the Oakmont subdivision. He is usually very reserved, businesslike.
I like to thank him for having to walk up a package to my door, but I don't think he hears me. Sometimes he wears headphones.
Today, he walked up a package to our door. I decided to stand there and wave 'thank you' until he got into his truck. He waved a friendly wave back and proceeded to go down the road.
Just then, my silly 21 yr old slid right up to me without me seeing him and I shrieked in surprise.
My dear postman slammed on the breaks and tore off his headphones to see what was the matter!
I yelled back that's it's OK; I was just startled.
I am SO grateful that this man would be SO attune that he would stop everything and care about me.
Would you please pass along my appreciation for him to anyone above him?
In such a digital and computerized world, it is SO good to know that good men are concerned and alert, even as they go about their regular business day.
I sent my son $ 200 for his birthday and he did not get it in the birthday card it was in.. sent Iola, Texas. and I also sent $ 60 more for his wife on her birthday in a birthday card and it never got there. I think I will send a die pack in a birthday card and see if I will here from the government about that being shipped in the mail. you think they will talk to me then, be cause they don't want to talk know.
USPS in Ridgeland has misplaced mail. They delivered my package to the wrong place. And no one is trying to do anything about it. And no one answers the phone when you try to get in contact with them. And when you go to the place in person. They do the bare minimum to see who misplaced the package. I am furious at this point Because I have lost money.
This post office is absurd. Apparently they've recently decided they will NO LONGER be delivering packages.............unless you're home to receive them. I'm sorry, but some of us have three jobs and work 64 hour weeks. Thus the entire reason for needing something shipped to our homes. So while we're not home because we're doing OUR jobs, the postal service can't do their ONE job and deliver what I've paid for to my house. Are you kidding me....? You literally have one job. One.
