This is the worst post office I have ever had to deal with. When I have the option I pay extra to have items shipped via FedEx or UPS. The mail carrier refuses to leave our packages because he is to lazy to open the fence and put our packages on the porch. Even if we are home, he makes no attempt to deliver any thing larger than a letter and leaves a "sorry we missed you" note. That would be fine except the post office hours are beyond rediculous because they are only open 8:30-3:45! What normal working person is going to be able to get there during those hours?! I am having all of my future parcels routed to my mother in laws on Pansey. At least her mail carrier will get out of her car and leave packages on the porch.
