I have lived in the house for over 27 years and only had a few different delivery personnel, but apparently USPS doe not pay them enough to do their jobs. My house is less than a mile from the mailboxes at the entrance to my property. I have a large rural mail box for larger packages and most of the time they will put them in the box, but sometimes they just put them on the ground next to mailbox post. I was told by the Postmaster that the drivers are not allowed do drive more than a mile to drop a package off at the residence. The carrier we had until approximately 5 years ago would drive to my house to drop off large packages. Just before he retired he dropped a package off (somewhere) he could not remember where and the address that he said he dropped it off at was a vacant piece of land on a different street from where I live. The post office said they could not do anything about it because he put it in as delivered to the correct address. I personally spoke with him and he could not remember where he dropped the package. I was out the money for the because the carrier said he delivered it. Now this week the carrier says he/she "delivered it to an individual", but that was not true, because my Grandson found it on the driveway near the entrance to my property. This behavior is unacceptable and I am going to file a formal complaint with USPS. The package originated with UPS and they are going to hear about this too.
We have been living at our address for at least 6 years now. I have had so much trouble with our mail lady, its ridiculous. Usually, she will honk the horn for bigger packages (leaving the others in the mail box) for someone to come out to get them. She is too lazy to get out of the truck let alone lately, she doesn't wait for someone to come out, she throws our packages on the ground. Not only I have witnessed this, but my family including the neighbor has seen this. Let alone my neighbor is an older lady who has medical problems, she made her walk out there to get the package. She is not new, this is an ongoing event that it's frustrating she can't even hand it to a person who was clearly walking over to her.
