I mailed a board game from the East coast to Minneapolis using Media Mail. I used Media Mail because I assumed a printed board and cards are considered media. I assumed wrong. The inspectors at this postal office opened my box, ripped open my game, resealed the box without putting the game contents back in order, and sent it back to sender (me) with a note indicating that board games are not considered media mail. I understand why they returned it to sender. I don’t understand why they ripped opened my game and scattered the contents. I called this postal office to complain and was met with derision and condescension by the manager. I suppose it’s a good thing for both of us that I live way over here on the East coast.


My mail has stopped coming to my residence and is being sent back to sender stating that I no longer live there and did not leave a forwarding address. This is extremely frustrating.


On Saturday about 9 I had a person coming to the house to leave me some money when she got there she didn't wait long enough for anybody to get to the door and knew that I needed it so she stuck it in the mailbox and thought she'd call me in an hour or two. However she didn't call me till 1 by that time the mailman had come and put mail in the box but the money was gone. Now it's possible he picked it up thinking it was an outgoing mail and stuck it in his bag and then I if I understand the process you guys would have sent it to the main post office downtown. It's possible and it's in your office or it may be possible that it went to the downtown office I need for somebody to call me back my number is 763 789 4455 if you can't reach anybody at that number call [number removed].


Or it’s possible the person lied to you and said they left you the money in your mailbox and they never did, it’s possible.

I am still waiting for my mail delivery, I haven't received any mail in more than 2 weeks, even though I know that I have some that was supposed to be delivered last week, such as my application for Anoka county assistance application and my stimulus check and some other mail that the senders informed me was mailed out to me from them more than 2 weeks ago??? Tina from Columbia heights Mn..


Have request Highview apartments Columbia heights Missing out going mail box How do we get one installed


I want to know why somebody didn't pick up my mail today that is very time-sensitive? Small envelope with one piece of paper in it so I know one stamp is good enough.
