Carrier continually leaves certified mail with receipt attached or signs herself. Sometimes she leaves an attempt notice, but I'm always home to accept the certified mail. It's become a joke. Complained to the manager there. He says he'll talk to her, but nothing changes.


nobody answers 212 879 4401 why publish it? The 800 number said you are closed-- Its 140 pm in nyc on a weds????


Went to this post office today, shipped a small package, the black woman in the window asked if i wanted to add a tracking# for an additional dollar/something, I asked if it came with a tracking# she said NO, I did not pay and checked the receipt - there WAS a tracking #, it actually did come with it automatically, and she tried to charge me for it.There is another black woman in window 4, she is SHOCKINGLY rude and disgusting, she does whatever she wants, and the supervisor told me they couldn't do anything "because she is in the union".Can someone do something about these people?????!!!???
