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.
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.
Upset recipient from the Osprey Post Office Carrier
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.
