I put a package in box this morning. It is 6 pm in Southside. Al Package still in box. My mail carrier runs whatever time she wants too. I am disabled and my mail box is over 200 yards. Why can’t we get our mail at same time everyday. My carrier delivers Mail from 2pm until 8 or 9 pm. I mail a lot of packages and don’t want To leave in box 6 or 7 hours Surely something can be done about this. Mail delivery in Southside is unreal it is the worse every day.


I live at 1815 Cedar Bend Road South, Southside, Al.. Recently two subdivisions on each side of me was put on a new route. We do not get our mail till between 5pm-7pm. In the winter time it is dark by then and we don't get it till morning. There are 11 boxes between these subdivisions that she has to go by twice. Why can't we be put on this route also???? Most of us are elderly.


I am still having trouble with my mail carrier not delivering my mail and sending it back. If this issue is not resolved I will be taking legal action.


I h ave a rural u U.S. approved mailbox an d the carrier refuses to leave my mail because it has a door not a slot. What do I do. The post office branch won't help.
