My packages are left out in the rain at the road. Just don’t deliver if raining. This guy can’t make it to the front door for some reason. Have a box today delivered to a parcel box? Extra work for me to track this box down. I don’t have a parcel box. Just do the extra minute to deliver to the front door if you were so concerned about this particular box. Or, let the weekend guy deliver, he knows where the front door is.


The mail person today 5/11/22 jammed a Amazon package into my mailbox and I can’t get it out. I’ve called the 800 number which is useless and the local 821 number 17 times. It just rings. I nearly pulled my box off of the post. I’ve asked a neighbor for help.


seeing when my mail box keys gone be ready unit 257 East Lake 2527 6th Ave
