Carrier seems much better at getting the correct mail to the correct address. Used to be a fairly common mistake.
I don’t know about other post office locations and set counter hours in relation to population served. The one hour “closed for lunch” may have been ok 10-15 years ago but Haslet is a pretty large population area now. They really need to hire another person and stagger lunch to better serve their customers. They only have 2 counter spots and even during “open” hours I don’t recall ever seeing but 1 person working it.
Today I saw our mail carrier deliver our mail, and, expecting something important, I went to check the mailbox just a few minutes later. In the mailbox was a "Sorry we missed you" Certified Letter card. I jumped in my car and found the mail carrier on the next street over. As I handed her the card I said, "why didn't you bring this to my door?". Before she even looked to see which address I had come from she answered, "a lady was walking a dog and I don't get out if dogs are around". I said, "was the dog on a leash?", she said, "I don't know, I wasn't paying attention. I have the right not to get out if there is a dog around". My response was that if the dog was on a leash it was under control, and that people in this neighborhood have a right to walk their dogs on leashes and receive their mail.
(1) I was behind her by just a few minutes (I caught up to her on the next street over), and I never saw a lady, or a dog.
(2) She came up with the dog story awfully fast, considering she didn't even know which house I had come from, and she "didn't notice" whether or not the dog was on a leash? Um, maybe because there was no dog??
(3) She regularly speeds through our neighborhood driving much faster than is legal or safe. I don't think there was a dog. I think she didn't want to take the time to come to the door.
(4) Neighbors post complaints about this mail carrier FREQUENTLY on our neighborhood Facebook page, stating she drives too fast, mail went to the wrong address, packages showing delivered were nowhere to be found, etc.
Delivering the mail is this person's job. I don't expect her to actually put herself in danger, but fabricating a story as an excuse to be lazy isn't acceptable. If incidences like this were a rare occurrence I would think maybe she wasn't feeling well today, or there was some reasonable explanation, but this isn't the exception, this is her norm and it is not okay.
I should have just dropped off at Alliance on Westport, drove past it on my way home. Only dropped here cause I was at library in haslet and it was first in line, dummy me was thinking small town p.o. would be quicker. A day later and my package didn't scan hope it didn't get lost!!!
They delivered my package to the wrong address then argued with me about the addres. And told me there was nuthing i could do about it...even tho i have a copy of the tracking info and it does not have the wrong address on it...what a joke if i didnt have to get my mail from them id never use them again...i stongly recomend any packages you might get shipped use someone else that will at least except responsibility for there screw up
I had a flat rate envelope with postage on it was put in my mailbox on a Friday to arrive in OH. After a week, (traveling) it never arrived. It was later discovered still in the mailbox with new mail piled on top of it. The postman in Haslet, TX never even looked to see if it had postage or even bothered to pick it up!!!!!!!! And to make matters worse, a flat rate any weight envelope is exactly what it says on the front and the gentleman working at Haslet post office told me not to put over 13oz in it or it wouldn't get picked up.
The staff I encountered today was not at all helpful. Doesn't look professional when the lady yells from the back, "Just tell her we can't do it," instead of trying to find the answer to my question. I took the item to UPS and mailed it with no problem.
