On July 17th 2020.. On this day the mailman jumped on the hood of my car. There was 2 dogs across the street.. He was going to the roof of the car when we went out.. The only thing he took with him was his mail bag. THe spray and the skanner was thrown in the drive way. My daughter had to walk him to his truck.. The one dog was starting to on the street and my daughter told him to go home and he went the other way from them.. I called the post office they sent a supervisor out took the info down and took pictures, The hood is dented the shape of his feet. When he was on the hood it was about 6 inches in when he was standing on it.. I have call so many time and was told I will get a call back. My daughter has also called with the same info.. I went up to the post office and was told they will call me at my home.. I start to loss it but I had to get myself together... There was one person told my daughter to get it fixed thru are insurance, We are also told they are checking into... HOW LONG is this going to go on.... Is it going by the pony express...

I have an e-mail saying my package was delivered to my address. IT HAS NOT BEEN DELIVERED. I cannot reach anyone at the post office to speak to in person and ask where my package is. I have spent aprox 2 hour on telephone (on hold mostly) trying to speak to someone. all I get are recorded messages.

Mailbox has been broken for a week, after going to the post office to be told no one is in I call the 1800 number and make a complaint. Have had several issues with this mailbox and no one is every at the post office or every in.

Do mail carriers not deliver food store flyers anymore. Strange how some parts of my community receive them and parts serviced my other carriers dont. Is this not a punishable offence? Is the post office not paid to deliver them. Then why does it not happen

A package was thrown on my walk way to my front door. I do have a door bell and a storm door, in addition to a bench by the door. Is this acceptable? NO!!! At the very least the package should have been placed by the front door. If you like I can send a photo where this was left. Does this mail person know if anyone is home? If by chance it rained the item would have been ruined.

Just stopped at the Ogletown road branch -- 830am. The boxes out front in the lot were OVERFLOWING---I cannot believe that from last night to today the mail got stuffed that full in more than one box. I tried to call 4x at the local number and no answer. Honestly - I'll stay using the Odessa location from now on.

Keep calling Newark Ogletown Post Office (302-737-5771) to setup a Passport Appt and phone just rings and rings. Have tried repeated, continuous attempts on different days at different times. I just called 1-800# and they assigned a case number so Newark USPS will call back in 2-3 bus. days to setup passport appointment
