Why is it taking a longer period time at the Post Office to purchase any Money Orders or send any mail out certify, please don't tell me you are short of staff because you have been saying that that months and weeks I will start taking my business to Scotia or Balltown Branch

I live in Schenectady and I have mixed emotions about the carriers who deliver my mail each day. I have had some issues with USPS carrier delivering the wrong mail to me or misdelivering my packages. I wish these people would do their job and take it seriously.
