Cannot reach descanso PO due to their phone ringing a few times ending in steady odd tone--not fax. In hospital for extended period and cannot reach to have mail forwarded or even held. Usually great place but this is unacceptable. No way to contact. Yay


I have had a PO Box there for the last four years and I have not been able to make it there recently and she recently called me to see if I was alive and if it was not abandoned and I told her it was not abandon and my car my car had broken down and I was not able to get there the other day I was able to send my friend and get my mail and the guy there took my key and said I had not paid my bill and I have the receipt right here in front of me saying I paid my bill and she will not return my call


I would like to comment on the lack of customer service at our P.O. We are a small town pop. 1500 estimated. A package that did not have my P.O. Box number 374, but rather a street address, was not held at the P. O. for me. My name is Helen Yuhl, celebrating 50 yrs. of residence, well known to Postmaster. She is a stickler for rules. Seems to me customer service should be imminent over rules if the P.O. is going to keep its customers. Thank you.
