Two packages with medicine were supposed to arrive today but according to tracking the address was inaccessible. It's plenty accessible for junk mail, though. The regular carrier was out but the sub couldn't find the mailbox, or leave the boxes on the step, or put them behind the storm door? I had to drive to the p.o. The woman at the counter was helpful. Her supervisor was not--he didn't come out, just shouted from the back room that the carrier would deliver it. WHEN? It's a weekend and the packages contain medicine. I have to go back tomorrow morning instead of doing the other things I need to get done. I am extremely frustrated and angry at this supervisor.


At 79 I have experienced many postmen/women. The one who delivers to 707 MIx Avenue is by far the worst. I have been getting packages from Amazon for almost 25 years. After. The death of my husband this made it much easier for me. It is amazing that this delivery person has no pride in his job. He leaves pkgs in outer lobby which is not secured. Doesn’t want to take a chance and ring buzzer and have that person ask to. Have packages delivered to apt door. There was one msg. Left in mailbox. How he was able to fit an airfryer in a mailbox is very interesting. Many times he notes left in mailroom. We do not. Have mailroom. I then left note asking not to leave any. Pkgs in mailbox. Left something very important this last week. I was not able to get it. He is lazy and most likely can’t wait to finish and go home. Amazon is aware of these issues.


The mail still has not been delivered today, and showed up in the late evening yesterday.
