Sad to say once more the mail on our street is being delivered to the wroing homes , the carrier even had a box to deilver and I went out to get it while she was still at my box in her truck she gave me the mail from one hose down the road all of the mail was theirs I really dont under stand how one can read a 1737 as a 1731 with completley different names, I now wonder if since I got all theirs if the rest of the street was delivered one house off I walked over to my other side neighbor and informed them of this incase they have all mine IT IS now wonder this postal service is loosing money. lucky all our bills are paid on line now we can not trust the postal serivice any longer..... Please Please, hire people who want to work and can read, I am you are we all are paying for a service that is shotty at best if I did this poor of a job I would be fired... and the internet is doing that to the postial service.. !!!

We live on Wade St. Bristol, IN 46507 and have not received mail for a week. I have heard others on our street saying the same is true for them. I am wanting to know what the reason is for not getting our mail.

Your employees can't read. They deliver mail to the wrong street to a house with the same number. Someone is keeping that mail. You my not want me to walk out to the mailbox to take care of this situation. They won't want to hear what I'll say. You must hire uneducated idiots that get paid way to much. I could do a better job. At least I can read!!!

1- 7 - 19. I Im trying to locate my mail that hasn't been delivered for a week. I have been on hold for over 45 minutes on the toll fee number and have just tried calling my local Elkhart In. Location. Unfortunately, the "MAIL BOX IS FULL" on the local line. I would appreciate a TEXT regarding mail delivery at my location CR 130 Elkhart. Thank you!

We live on a state road in Bristol and have received zero mail in over a week. No W2. No Amazon. No bills. No checks. No junk mail. NOTHING. In over a week. While I understand the temps last week, made it necessary to keep carriers in on Wednesday and Thursday, just holding onto our mail for over a week, with no notice, no place to pick it up, is completely UNACCEPTABLE! Sure am glad I shoveled the mailbox out, day after day, for all the ice and snow to melt before I actually get my mail.

No mail received in 7 days. I live in a small mobile home park and have had trouble with our mail carrier for a long time. Last time i got mail there was 4 differant people's mail in 1 mail box. The carrier is extremely rude and almost ran over my feet once. Complained my mail box which is new was not big enough. Mine is bigger than every one else's. She doesn't want to get out of her vehicle to deliver anything. Evan sorry we missed you orange slips put in my mail box when i was standing out side and saw her. I never get anyone to answer at the post office and voice mail is always full. All my neighbors have complaints also. Some one please do something. We live in Jimtown school district. .

I receive informed delivery notices daily so I know what is being delivered every day. My postal carrier has gotten in the habit of bundling my mail and delivering it sporadically, not daily. I was suppose to have delivered some very important documents days ago!

We have terrible service on rural route six . We either get no mail or it comes after 7pm.Thats terribly late for carriers to be out. The other delivery companies are getting through. It’s most likely a shortage of help but I order a lot and I’m tired of getting things late including Amazon!

They are pieces of garbage here. They never pick up their phones and when they do it's an extremely rude "what do you want" If you don't like your job get a new one. If you aren't going to actually work get a new f***ing job. If you order Christmas presents, which I did a month almost 2 months ago. Dont rely on Elkhart USPS because you will not get it on time. Even one of the Female employees said "im not being rude I'm just telling you what you don't want to hear" after asking to speak to her manager she half a**ed helped and was very very rude. Will not be going through Elkhart USPS ever again.

I sent a big Manila envelope to a business with time sensitive material almost two weeks ago.When the person from the business inquired the Carrier told her that he may have sent it back he did not if he did..What is that?this was a first class portage.Why is it treated like a no class situation?this is not except able...

Ok so today I put the food outside my door under a covered porch in the bag provided to be picked up by the post office..... My postal delivery man took the bag and placed it on my curb net to the street?!? I’m thinking they must be following him to pick the food up.... this was before 12 PM. I just happen to look outside...it’s now raining and the bag is still on the curb!!! I have boxes of Mac n Cheese and probably a few other items that shouldn’t get wet!!! Called the post office no answer! 😡

This is bad..The first experience I have with USPS in Elkhart and I feel that all my good experiences I have had in the past are out the window.I don't let things like this go.A squeaky wheel gets the oil.I advise every one to file a formal complaint to the White house..Time to roll some heads.

Yesterday a small package was left at my door. The mail carrier rang the doorbell but was gone before I could tell the carrier that it wasn’t for me. The package was for an individual in care of a neighbor several houses away from mine. The package was neatly addressed with the correct address and my house number was scribbled to the left of the neatly written address. The house where the package belonged is set back from East Jackson and should have been delivered before the carrier reached my home. I think the carrier missed the correct home and left it at mine. Several months ago a package was misdelievered and never did reach me. My faith in the USPS is declining.

This is the second time I’ve put my mail in the mailbox by cvs on Nappanee ! The first time my checks didn’t get to destination so I had to stop the checks to a tune of 70.00 !!! Now I’ve sent out 9 bills same mailbox cvs at Nappanee and 5 have gotten to destination but the others haven’t. I mailed these feb 17th!! Look I’m not shelling out 140 dollars because these checks got lost or dropped. You would think a mailbox at a heavily travelled area would get there. In all my life of 60! Years I’ve never had issues. You guys are government paid and at a good salary ! Whoever does the pickup at cvs on Nappanee needs to get it together . And if you are reading your emails listen to us and do something about it . I couldn’t get away with ignoring a complaint when I worked at egh!

I have had it with your lack of service. I called last month and the supervisor never returned my call. I’ve had lost packages and mail. I get sick of having someone else’s mail delivered to my house. I’ve talked to Bristol several times. I’m tired of delivering your mail.

Curious as to why our mail has been delivered so late at 8:30 pm on 1/17/17 and 6:30 pm on 1/18/17. Hope this is not becoming the norm.This is not a good work standard.

Keep trying to fax in my stamps by fax form. I was told fax was broke down for over 6 months and last time I was in there I was given a new form and told the fax machine was working now. I work at a fast going business and don't always have time to go stand in line for 30 min just to buy stamps. Please get this fixed.. You shouldn't offer a service if you can't follow through with it.

They never answer any time any day. They need to be fired and hire people that actually do their job, WHICH CONSISTS OF ANSWERING THE GOD DAMX PHONE. LAZY A$S GOVERNMENT PAID FKS.

We are the training route in the city and have a different mailperson everyday.Sometimes they deliver if we are lucky enough but it's not always the right mail or it looks like they have held it for days before delivery.My magazines that I pay for don't come on time and if they do show up they are ripped or torn.I don't know what is happening but they need to get it together.

Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds....if only these words were true. It should say: we lie, we don't care, and will deliver or pick up your mail when and if we please...oh and maybe we will deliver it to the correct address. No mail delivery/pick up today, non yesterday because it was a holiday, and apparently Saturday was out of the question because of the weather. Instead we got this message on our ebay shipment summary for a package we were expecting: Notice Left (Receptacle Blocked)...hhmmm if the "receptacle" was blocked (which it was not) where did you leave the notice???? What a joke. Wish i had a job that i didn't have to do my job and got paid way too much to not do. That's our great government hard at work. And to reply to vvvvvvv apparently anything they want to do is legal. Gets you no where to call and complain or even take time to go in person to get an answer to a simple question. They will just lie to your face to give you the answer you want to hear and get you out the door.
