A while back, I saw the POW flag at the Milton post office was tattered, so I purchased a new one and took it to them and they were very gracious and put the flag up right away. I just went to drop off mail (1/3/2021) and the POW flag is down. What happened to it??


This is the 2nd time this has happened, fining our mail in our nextdoor neighbors mail box who is here only part time. The first time we have not gotten our mail for 2 days and saw our neighbors mail box was opened in the pouring rain so went to close it and found our mail, it was soaked. Now again 2/22/19 and 2/23/19 we thought to take a look in our neighbors mail box and there it was. Who ever is delivering should be gone from this position. They cannot read. My address is 29577 Lonny lane Milton 19968


I had a "Mail Hold" requestfrom 10/03 to 10/12. Also we wete tp pick the mail up at the Post Office. We came home early on 10/10. All our mail and newspapers were stuffed in our mailbox. This is not acceptable. The confirmation was even printed showing those dates and it was ignored. Also on a previous occasion I sent a certified letter to Wilmington, DE at the cost of $6.50. It was never delivered or found! How does this happen?


Had a package delivered on a rainy day and sat at the step edge of my front porch. The box was soaked, contents wet and leaked thru my house there was so much water in it. How can anyone be that Lazy not to put it a few more feet under the roof of the porch.


Angie is our carrier. We were waiting a piece of certified mail and it was delivered when we were not home. Today 5/25 we saw Angie and asked her about the mail. In her todays mail she did not have it but went above and beyond and called another carrier who delivered the piece to Angie who then personally delivered it to our home. Angie is a lovely young woman who is always smiling and professional and goes beyond her job description. We are glad she is our mail carrier. Give her a raise.


Have excellent service while dealing with Elva and Tim at Milton PO! They've handled all of our special needs as seasonal residents with utter efficiency!!


Horrible service. Like I'm living in a third world country or something. Out going mail with flag up for 3 days. Still sitting in my box. Paid a fortune for 2-day air service on multiple occasions (domestic less that 300 miles away). Lucky to see it in a week.


The women that was working was one of the most laziest rudest individuals i have ever met. My fiance has gone in there 4 previous times looking for white rose stamps so we could finish sending out are wedding invitations and she kept saying that they have them but she doesnt have the keys to get them she then said they would be here the next day and ahe tried again....and then again the same lady said they would be here monday...well here monday is and i go in there and ask for the stamps and the lady then states that they have none and they will order some and i said u told my fiance they would be here monday she then stated that it wasnt her problem and for me to have a nice day......i then walked outside called the lewes store and they said they had plenty and would hold them for me the lady i talked to was very nice and so respectful....
