mail carrier put the neighbors mail in my box this am 9/11/2017 , where is my mail? i try calling 665-5811 and keep getting busy signal. why do we have a phone on one answers?


I had been expecting a Christmas package. UPS tracking showed my pkg was at the post office. But it showed the wrong P.O.BOX number. So I called the post office. This very courteous employee found my package. He proceeded to verify and correct the p.o. box number. It wouldn't fit in my box and all lockers were full. But that's ok. I had peace of mind just knowing it was there and not put in the wrong box. A big thank you to the postal worker that was there to help me on Saturday Christmas Eve. 🎄


Gainesville PO will not answer my calls. I need my mail transferred to another location while I'm out of town. Answer your phone calls they may be important. And why does it say enter a key code?


Horrible customer service. Use UPS or FedEx whenever possible.


I live in an apartment complex and ordered something online, according
to my tracking number my parcel was delivered to a "parcel locker".
When I checked my mail there wasn't a package or a key for a parcel locker in
my mail box. I checked the apartment office any sadly my package wasn't there.
I checked my email again and noticed I forgot to put my apartment number in my
address. I called the post office (it was nearly closing time) and told the
very nice lady that answered the phone the situation. She was very pleasant
looked up my package with my tracking number and took my phone number so that
my postal carrier could call me the next day. The next day around 1:00PM I
received a phone call from my postal carrier. She explained to me that there
was no apartment number in the shipping address so since there was a resident in
my complex that has the same common last name as me, she placed the key in
their box. I asked her why she didn’t place the parcel in the apartment office
for me to pick up. She then angrily asked if I worked in the office. Of course
I said no, her response was that I couldn’t receive mail in the office. And if
I forgot to put my apartment number on a parcel again that she would just send
it back! I told her that I would be more okay with her doing that then just
giving my parcel away to someone. I was also thinking, if she was intelligent
enough to look at the last name why didn’t she go ahead and look at the first
name and place the key in the correct mail box. I mean she delivers my mail
regularly right???Anyways, my only complaint with all this is that this is very poor
customer service. Not only could my parcel have been stolen but my mail carrier
didn’t even apologize for the mistake and put the whole blame on me. I
understand that I was careless with typing out my address but this is


Just a thought, If the post man delivers in rain, sleet, snow and in any other weather. Then how come is it when someone parks in front of your house to go to a neighbors garage sale, and they block the postman from driving right up to your mailbox. Why cant he get his lazy ass out of the truck and deliver your mail with the tax dollars we pay him to do so. Is it to much to ask for him to take three steps from the comfort of his mail car to walk over and put mail in the box rather than holding your mail hostage for days on end?
