I cannot pick up my held-mail until Sept. 21st, MONDAY. I have tried to call and text you about this, but have not gotten to write of voice a message. I'm in GA. A couple more days, due to the road damage "SALLY" caused. THANK YOU. 42 Carson DR., SE, FWB, FL.


I have had mail that was meant to be picked up by the uses and was left under neath the mail that was dropped off. This post office sucks. No wonder our government is so screwed up


Either someone from this post office lost a piece of mail I sent to my sisters there in ft walton beach that had money enclosed or someone from the postal service lost it somewhere between Georgia and Florida...or it was stolen! Either way, the postal service owes my sister that money!!!! And the crap going on between the postal service and the government about finding has ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to do with these people not doing their jobs correctly!! Since all the mess about covid and government funding started, their service has gotten sorry! There's NO excuse!!!


I am EXTREMELY frustrated with this post office. I have been receiving my prescriptions via USPS ever since the COVID outbreak and for the last 2 months they have either lost them or put them in the WRONG mailbox. These medicines are necessary for my health. This is NOT acceptable. I spoke to a gentleman yesterday because my tracking number said they were scanned and delivered to me on 8/1. He took down my phone number and I haven’t heard back from him and NO ONE will answer the phone now! I understand times are hard but these are my MEDS, not just a birthday card or the gazillion flyers we DEFINITELY get every week.


I just read a comment about "lazy" postal government employees. I am not a postal employee and the only time I worked for the US government was four years in the Navy, (Vietnam veteran). The USPS is made up of people who work like hell. They're courteous and 99% of the mail gets through with no problem. For those people that think the private sector is the answer to everything, thy DHL. There's a good 50% chance your delivery will get where it's supposed to go.


Yet again I have another card stolen. They delivered an empty envelope. Who does this, how is this acceptable. To continuously steal mail. Who steals people's cards and delivers an empty envelope. Another way we can count on the government.


Hi, Today I supposed to get package with coffee and in the morning post office wrote it was out for delivery. I was waiting for whole day and now in evening they posted on post office site that they held my package with coffee at the post office, at customer Request fort Walton beach. But I never requested this! And tomorrow weekend will start. Now office is already closed!!! So when I can get my package and who requested to hold it in post office? Irina


Like every government run operation, the USPS is a poorly run, over paid, conglomerate of lazy employees. I had a package with a tracking number delivered to my front yard mailbox, so the tracking info says, but there is no package in the mailbox. I pay money for the postal employees to deliver the package to my home, with tracking, and when it's delivered the carrier has to input when and where the package was delivered - but it is not there !!!!! Where the hell is it ????? No one answers the phone at the post office, you have to go to the office and stand in line to talk to an employee who could give a rats ass where your package is - you complain and are given a piece of paper to fill out that goes in the trash can the minute you walk out the door. Just lousy service from inept workers who don't give a damn !!!!!!!!! And talk to a stupid-visor is like talking to your dog, a lot of tail wagging but no results !!!!!!!


I was out walking my dog down Hawkins Road this evening and observed the following and felt I must respond to what I witnessed, especially after retiring from the USPS after 37 years service. Today,12/26/2015 , a postal mail carrier was delivering mail at 7:05pm on Hawkins RD. He never stopped at the NDCBU at Greystone Lane, and sat for 21 minutes at the NDCBU at Hawkins Road and Cotton Tree Court. Insteadn past years, the postmaster or route supervisor was required to give relief assistance if the carrier on any given route was going to be delivering after dark. Sitting in front of a NDCBU on narrow Hawkins Road when it was pitch black was certainly a traffic hazard. I am not trying to be a know it all, just calling this to your attention it case you are unaware of this practice. Your route supervisor also needs to be involved with getting the delivery carriers off the street before nightfall. 4.00x using I hope you appreciate my concern and input on this matter and trust you will look into why you have delivery personnel on the street after dark and hope this matter does not have to go any further to get corrected. You can respond to me at my below listed email address.
Respectfully, Steve
