I recieved a letter from the IRS on November 4th, 2022 and it was completely open. I have informed delivery so I can see pictures of my mail before I get it and in the picture it is sealed. The post worker who did that route that day better be fired. I'm reporting this to other authorities as well. Hire better people. This is ridiculous and scary. No wonder the post office is dying.

Never got two of my packages. One was over $100 for something electronic and the other was clothing items. They said it was resolved and stated that it was delivered to our mail box and yet it never showed up in our mail box. So what? Not we are just out $100+ because something that not our fault??

Your carrier didn't leave a notice for something that needs signed for. I can't get it rescheduled for delivery and can't sign online for it. I won't get another chance to sign because they never left the freaking notice I need to get the package. How hard is it to do what you say you did? So much stress and hassle over something so small. Just so fed up with this whole system.

Oversized packages are stuffed into my small apartment mailbox ruining the actual item itself! It’s so frustrating because it happens often. The package is clearly too big to go in the mailbox because I can barley get it out. Why can’t the mail carrier leave be front door like they do with large boxes? They pick and choose and I end up having to replace the items they squeeze into the mailbox

I have filed a mail theft report over 30 days ago and haven't received a response. I've emailed asking for feedback and have two service request numbers: 23991258 and 24247110. I have a picture of the empty envelope that was in my mailbox. What should I do now?

Twice in the last month I've received mail addressed to other addresses. Two weeks ago I never received an express mail delivery that was supposedly time stamped as delivered to my box. Just now a neighbor handed me mail addressed to me that was left in their boxl

I wonder constantly why I get mail on Sundays? Are they getting a jump start for Mondays? Or late for Saturdays? This is not a new problem since the pandemic, it has been a thing for the past atleast 3 years. On top of that when I do get my daily mail it is usually very late at night. We have even made it a game in our house will our mail come before or after dusk? I have even received regular mail (including the junk and coupons) as late as 930pm. Does other have this problem. I am located on the north side of columbia.

Is it normal for a package from New York heading to Boston to be sent to your facility?

Wednesday evening (November 11th, 2020) at approximately 6:30 pm a letter carrier backed into my flag pole and broke it. I was watching at the time and heard the crack when she hit it. It is now leaning over and I think if I push it back it will break off the rest of the way. My neighbor also heard it break and called me as soon as she left. She was looking for Paul Wyatt who is one of my neighbors. She said she would report it but I have heard nothing. I am a veteran and flying the flag is important to me. My phone number is 573 819 2966 and my address is 8330 W Jakes Bluff Drive, Columbia, MO 65203. Thanks very much.

Several times over the last few months we have received mail that was not ours. Today, Aug. 25, I received four pieces of mail that is not mine, the address is not even for this street. We did not get any mail which is unusual, not impossible, Waterfront Dr. N. Would you please look into this matter.

My son’s graduation cards from both of his grandparents disappeared this month, despite frequent daily checks of our mailbox. Seeing all of the complaints on my neighborhood app, this appears to be a huge problem in Columbia right now. Please get postal workers that are ethical and don’t steal from children.

Once AGAIN Magnolia Falls received no mail 01-21-20. We are tired of this terrible service which includes mail in the wrong boxes and getting the mail, when it's delivered, late at night. If the postmaster can't get this corrected we need a new postmaster with leadership abilities. I'll bet he gets his mail on time. He can be replaced if the right contacts are made.

I'm having the same issue. The roads out here are fine but I haven't gotten mail in three days. I don't live in the country. I'm 15-20 minutes from downtown.

I believe this is the worst postal service in the nation. During the past snow storm my mail was held for a week and a half. There were vital prescription drugs along with important mail. I was able to get back and forth to work each day so I feel there was not excuse. Additionally, I mailed out a bill and it was returned statin stamps void when coated, covered, defaced or reused. A big red X was on the stamp, it would not stick perfectly so I put a skinny piece of tape at the top and bottom so it wouldn't fall off...I barely covered the edges.

I just wanted to commend a postman named David #47 for his kind, helpful, friendly attitude while discussing a delivery to my home at 4801 Rainbow Trout Drive. God bless him for being so helpful!!

I’m having a lot of trouble with mail service. By a lot, I mean four incidences sine the middle of June. I’ve had mail delivered to another address, I ordered Greenies ($30+), that said it was delivered, and wasn’t. This morning, I was informed I received a book bag ordered for my grandson, ($25+), which was never delivered. I cannot get ahold of anyone!!! This comes on top of my Hold Mail incident I filled out for the first two weeks of June, when on vacation. I came home to packages on my front porch, with a note saying mailbox full. It was, and I took all the mail out, and a copy of my Hold Mail slip was in the bottom of the mail box. Could someone please acknowledge you received this note? My address is 904 Marcassin Drive, 65201. My phone number is 417-339-1154. I’m not wanting to get anyone in trouble, I just want my stuff! Thank you!

Called on Saturday at 1:25pm, close at 2. Said 3-11 wait, no one answered. Two weeks in a roll I sent an oversized envelope to an apartment. One week it was left at the door but the next week a notice was left to pick it up on Monday. No common sense and courier being lazy because he would have to drive to the building.

Currently infuriated with the lack of follow up - I have been calling the 573.876.7802 number for the last 30 minutes, i know someone is there because it was busy previous. There is a mailbox in my apartment complex without a key, and without a faceplate at this point and no one at the post office will fix this. When mail is stolen, i will be referencing these calls and this notice. FIx it AND ANSWER YOUR DAMN PHONES

The person putting mail in the P.O. Boxes this week put 2 out of 3 other person's mail in our box. Take time to read the P.O. Box on the mail and put it into the right box.
