I moved into 1900 Brittany dr., Unit#14 in Feb 2018 and have not received ANY mail since. I went to the post office to inquire about it and the clerk gave me a VACANCY notice to put in my box. I am not VACANT, I live there. Can somebody please get back to me on where my junk mail and other items have been going!
The U.S. Postal service is a Federally run enterprise that has no direct competition in terms of mail pick up and delivery. As such, it is a monopoly. Since the public has to use this service on a daily basis, for business or private, the hours of operation need to accommodate the WORKING HOURS of the public. I am appauled that the ENTIRE Indialantic post office shuts down between 1pm and 2:15 pm for lunch. As a PUBLIC FACILITY wouldn't it be a wise idea to stagger workers lunch hours rather than shutting out the public who need to use the service during THEIR WORK hours? Come on guys....having no competition leads to unintended arrogance
Perhaps they only take a half hour lunch and maybe they are doing other duties during this time, such as sorting packages that have come in or need to go out, sorting mail for p.o. box holders, etc. There is a multitude of things that go on behind the desk. Possibly you could KINDLY ask why they do not have the window open for CUSTOMERS during lunch? You may not like the answer, but they may tell you another location that is open during lunch. My post office is open 8-12 m-f and Saturday 9-12.
Imagine how difficult it is for me to pick a package up I need to sign for which happens quite often. I work 8-5 40 minutes away. So stop being so grumpy be glad you have other options.

This is the worst post office I've ever been to. People should not be allowed to pack their "box" at the counter , taking up the clerk's time while doing this. They should be prepared. The most disorganized place. I will be sending a more formal response to the office of the Postmaster General.
I understand your frustration of the CUSTOMERS inconsideration, not the post office employee. The employee would LOVE to tell the customer to step aside so she can accommodate other customers, however imagine the scenario where the customer states it will only take a moment.....or if she does step to the side, does she go to the back of the line or can she butt back in, then imagine that CUSTOMERS reaction.
A lot of the time it is the CUSTOMERS in consideration of the people behind them, not the employee. Btw....this happens at multiple p.o. where I live up north.
