Live in a rural route, have not seen any mail for 3 days now. I know today, there was nothing on the roads like ice, and still no mail. I have a bill left in the box for 2 days now, looks like I will have to make a trip into town to get it mailed. I also keep on getting some else's mail all the time. What's going on?


Is anyone else not getting any mail at all? I was away for 2 weeks and nothing was found in my mailbox when I returned, nothing. I've been back 2 weeks and only a few junk pieces have been left, I don't understand what gives. My utility bills did not come, they were sent of course because I went to the companies to pay them knowing when they normally arrive but ????


Our business in Benton, KY, located at 675 U.S. Hwy 68 W, the postal carrier rarely picks up or drops off any mail, even when the flag is up, "because she doesn't like having to pull out making a left turn", from what I understand. I have mailed many items to our Benton office from our Central City office only for it to be returned, undeliverable, although the address is 100% correct!!! This is absurd.


Tried and tried to call to pay for PO Box because they say credit card on file is invalid. No one would ever answer and considering I’ve been out of town 2 months I can’t get to the post office. I guess they can lock the box and hold mail until I get back to go stand in line and pay them.


Whoever Tina is that works at the Benton location is extremely rude and doesn’t even give a chance to speak.
