ordered the goods in Ali Express, they wrote to us [ua32257198sb] if you have this number where is our order, thank you


Dec 14, 2020 long indoor line people not wearing masks, or noses galore, talking laughing no masks and we are under an emergency stay at home order. What is wrong with people??????? I had to leave. Citizens are careless and arrogant during the worst of the pandemic.


It’s not real, turn off CNN.
• Replied to Ellwood PO NO MASKS!!!!!!!!


I inadvertently used an incorrect address for the following item: Tracking ID: 9341989742009010596378 The correct address is: Susan Bjork, 4609 Vista Buena Road, Santa Barbara, CA 93110 I apologize for this mistake!!


I called in and I was just told that it was removed due to vandalism and will be replaced with a different type of box. I REALLY hope this is the case and that it is just TERRIBLE timing. POSTMASTER: Please be proactive and make a formal explanation and timetable.


where is the mailbox... why is it gone?


Bring back our drop-off box! And deliver my Stamps by Mail: I’ve been waiting 2 1/2 weeks!


173 Chapel Street Santa Barbara, CA 93111 Please deliver all packages to the big bay door to the rear of the property. It is very visibly marked for deliveries. The USPS carrier is the only delivery person who ignores the posted signs. Our packages are being left in font of the only door in use during this lock down. It is obvious that leaving packages stacked in front of a door, would create a trip hazard. Please leave our packages at the bay door going forward. Thank You


I recently had a birthday card addressed to an APO address returned to me for insufficient postage. It had a standard first class stamp on it which is all that is required for an APO address. Please provide training to postal employees to prevent this from happening. Thank you for your attention.


Not having our mail delivered since Saturday 4/4/20 Please deliver our mail!!!


I AM SEETHING! An attempt to deliver a package to me was made on 12/2. It required a signature (I knew the package was coming, but not when, and I did not know a signature would be required when it arrived.) I received an email informing me that I could schedule redelivery and could do so then (online). I did so, requesting that it be delivered today (12/10), when I would be HOME ALL DAY. I then received a confirmation number of the rescheduling. Well, I waited here ALL DAY, foregoing the opportunity to run errands. (I wanted to be here to sign for the package, since this was the date *I* selected.) The package did not arrive by 4:55, so I checked to see when the post office closed; it closes at 6:00 on weekdays, according to the info posted online for this branch. Yay! I immediately called, got a recorded message saying they closed at 6 P.M., and was put on hold. I got to listen to some cheesy music for four minutes, at which time a loud, rapid busy signal came on. I figured this was what the employees did to those on hold at PRECISELY 6:00. $@#&it! INEXCUSABLE! (By the way, I am not able to walk very far or stand for more than a couple of minutes, so going to the P.O. and waiting in a long, slow line is not an option for me.)


On Tuesday I received an email and tracking # for an important package saying it was delivered to my mail box at 10:58 a.m.. It was not. Today, Wednesday, a gentleman brought my package to me saying it was in his mailbox on Rossmore Dr....a street blocks away from my address. Whoever the carrier was for Tuesday on my street apparently could not read correctly and delivered my package to wrong address...something that happens frequently whenever our usual mail carrier is not on duty. Maybe this particular mail person, whoever it was needs to be better trained or at least reprimanded for his lack of care in delivering mail.
