Worst post office in the state! I had a package out for delivery today, and about the time it was supposed to have been delivered, I saw a boxy looking vehicle parked in the farm field driveway next door. My driveway is quite long, so could not tell if it was actually a postal vehicle, but it sat there for about 20 minutes and about the time it pulled away I got a notification on my phone. The notification says “attempted delivery, could not access location”. That. Is. Crap…regardless of whether the vehicle I saw was a postal truck or not. My driveway is always clear, even in the worst snow storms. Any time I have a package larger than a shoe box they claim they couldn’t “access the location”, or “no one was home”. I’m ALWAY home and unless there are instructions to the contrary, all packages can be left on my porch. If this had not happened so often over the last 10 years, I’d chalk it up to the pandemic, but this is an ongoing issue because the carrier is to lazy to drive up my driveway.
I was notified that I would be receiving a package from Amazon today. But, I did not get the package delivered today. I checked on the Amazon web site and it indicates that the package was delivered today at 1:30pm. I have a ring door bell that videos all activity on my front porch and there was no delivery today. Why would amazon be notified a package was deliver that was not delivered? This happen once before and the package arrived the next day.
I have been told by the mail delivery man that they are over worked with all the packages they have to deliver for amazon. So, does that mean the the tracking system is not an indication of the true location of the package. In this case amazon would believe everything went on time as expected when in fact the package is still with the post office.
Why is this happening? Who should I talk with about this problem.
After delivering the mail yesterday my carrier drove into the mailbox and destroyed it. I know this to be true by following the tracks in the snow from other boxes down the road leading up to mine. Plus the door was ripped off and our water soaked mail was on the ground close by. The accident like tire tracks around my box clearly show the impact and how the carrier backed up to get around my now damaged box to continued on. I'm not so bothered by the mishap, but by the carrier leaving my mail on the ground in the wet slush when it's so very clear they knew about the impact. I can't even get through to the post office here in Swartz Creek to ask about the incident. I wonder if the USPS is responsible for the repair?
Lots of snow out there this morning (12-14-17) and I didn't have time to clear the mailbox area. I happened to be looking out the window and saw the mail delivery truck out there. He got out of his vehicle and trudged through the mound of snow to put my mail in the box. That is service!
I agree. I have had bad dealings with this loction too. Penning a letter as we speak to the local post master general. Not sure it will do any good but at least I'll feel better about airing the problems I've had.

Extremely rude and unhelpful staff and seem to have no concept of what their different classes of mail mean
