I went in to Osprey Post Office yesterday and the clerk at the counter, Christie (I believe her name tag read Christie Beattie) served me. She was angry, short and extremely rude. She talked to me as if I were mud on the ground. I had to say to her that i was asking these questions to try and understand what she was explaining to me. Then, another horrific woman walked up next to me, with a man next to her and started verbally attacking me because I asked questions. I got ambushed between the three of these people, and absolutely horrible things were yelled at me. I have never been attacked or harassed in my life, and this was awful. The Clerk (Christie) seemed to enjoy having two other people (who were now standing right next to me at the same counter, the woman beginning to push into me / and WHY were they allowed to do this?). I just wanted to get out of this ambush. I left and was so shaken from this attack, that I waited until the couple exited to go back in and ask for a Manager. As the woman left and saw me, she again started to verbally attack me. I entered the post office, obviously very shaken up, and asked for the Manager. The woman - Gill (or Jill) was standing there. She had stepped in to the counter next to the one I got attacked in, and had watched this scene unfold and did absolutely nothing. When I told her I was highly disturbed from being attacked, she did not care in the slightest. She merely shrugged and blamed the other customer for "butting in". Christie, the other clerk, stood and smiled this whole time. Neither one of them cared. It was almost as if they had some kind of sick joy in them when treating customers like this. It was absolutely horrific. I will be filing an Affidavit of Truth and recording on the land recorder because of this incident. Both of these clerks will be served. How on earth can you work in "customer service" and be this horrible to people? It was vile. Absolutely vile. I told Jill, the "manager" that it costs nothing to be nice to people. She didn't care. I called my husband in the car in tears after what had happened. There needs to be accountability for your actions. This was abhorrent, and I wish this abuse on NO-ONE.


What do I have to do to mail human cremation ashes to another state to be buried?


On Friday January 12, at 4:40pm, I deposited a card in the mailbox outside the Osprey P.O. I know from personal observation that a mail clerk always empties the box at 5pm or shortly thereafter but never a minute before 5pm. Yet the card did not arrive in Nokomis until, one week later. Please explain? In the past, that card would have arrived on Saturday, but the latest Tuesday (no mail January 15).


Whoever the postal carrier was today left my package not in mailbox, no, not even at my front door, but in front of my garage. You know, where a car drives in and out of. Guess who just ran over her package from USPS? Why would you ever think to put someone's package in front of their garage???


I have been trying unsuccessfully for several days to call the post office in Osprey, Florida, to renew the Hold instruction on my Mail. The number rings but when it stops ringing I only hear a whistling noise and I'm unable to speak to anybody. I was given to understand that to renew this instruction I must telephone the post office at the due date which is today. Using the automated system on your toll-free number I have been able to confirm the status of my instruction, but I am not sure that that means that it will be renewed for the next month.


IN the last week, I received mail intended for my neighbor, I did go ahead and tape it to his front door, unopened. THEN, a few days later, the neighbor on my other side, received my mail. Two different occasions, within about a week. What gets me, is the last issue, the letter and number was clearly written from the sender to my address, YET, someone at this PO wrote (in black marker/sharpee pen) the letter and a DIFFERENT number, so the package was delivered to the wrong recipient, not me. One mistake like this in a week is forgiving, but two mistakes like this with in a week is malicious.


I just wanted to let who ever is in charge at this Post Office know that I mailed a letter, check, and camera lens cap to my mother and when she received it today, the envelope was ripped on the side and the lens cap was stolen. I will be contacting who ever is in charge because this is just ridiculous. I do not believe that someone is allowed to go through someone else's mail and steal something.
