17 years and no lost mail. Then within 1 month of 4/4/2020 lost two letters. One was Mom's birthday card. Another an important bill. One was picked up by the mail carrier. The other (bill) I dropped off at the Lakeway, TX Post Office. I had to go inside because the two drive-thru boxes outside were stuffed and letters/small packages were falling on the ground. I told two workers at the front desk about the blue boxes and they just shrugged. Now I have to stop a check and resend. Crazy!
This place is a JOKE... They NEVER answer the phone and their phone system seems to be broken as well. Never gets you to any operator or voicemail like it promises. Absolutely miserable. My stuff should have been here 2 weeks ago and now my girlfriend still has nothing for christmas thanks to these f—-ing a——les.
Mail delivery on 08/10/19 in the afternoon to 209 Phlox Drive. Mail included the standard envelopes and a package that would not fit in the mail box. The delivery person left the package on the top of the mailbox, some 100 feet from the residence, easy access for anyone who might decide to pick it up and take it away. Employees and staff may change, but the services from this (Lakeway) branch continue to be sub-standard. Perception: employees simply don't care.
I had someone else's mail delivered to me (address wasn't even remotely similar). I put the red flag up for the postal worker to pick it up but the flag keeps falling down. I've called several times to ask for the flag to be fixed since it is USPS property, but no one answers the phone.
Here it is, 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, March 9th, and no mail has been delivered or picked up on our street: Allenwood Drive, Austin, Texas 78734. In my case, a form to be sent to Social Security, with my name, birth date, address and Social Security number has been sitting out there all day. There are people who roam this area, stealing from our mail boxes, so if we do not receive Saturday mail service, it would be nice to have been notified. This lack of daily service is sporatic, and confusing. Of course we could go find a mailbox at some public place, or the Post Office, but we have a mail box right at the end of our driveway that we have been using for the past 30 years, and have found it convenient. Please advise.

I went inside the post office at 10 am this morning to drop off a package which HAS TO GO OUT TODAY. It is currently 8:15 pm and the package still has not been scanned for departure!!! I know Jill has made numerous complaints to the head of our post office in Austin but I would really like to address this one myself. Jill truly has done enough for our community, spent many hours of her own time. Does anyone know who the contact is downtown? Thank you in advance for your assistance!
They never deliver the mail after a vacation stop is over and I request that it gets delivered to my house. I always have to go to the post office. They never have the mail, because it is on the mail truck, so I have to stand outside my mailbox waiting for the mailman to come. I have to flag him down and get my mail, otherwise he would just never get around to putting my mail in the box. I seriously do not understand that level of stupidity.
I don't know who sorts the mail but I get no less than four missorted items per week and usually more than that. This also includes packages. This has become very annoying and in the future I will just throw all this mail in the trash. Get someone who can do this job correctly.
I purchased a fairly delicate piece of electronics. New the device is over $10,000. But I scored a good deal for it used. The seller sent it priority mail through the post office. I needed to stay home for delivery. My carrier pulled up out front and put the other mail in my mailbox...How rude. As she approached the door I opened the door and put my hands out for the package. She tossed it onto the ground, rotating the package 2 or 3 times before it came to a stop. I was shocked. I said you realize you just threw delicate electronic hardware. She returned, looked at the box and said I don't see Fragile on it....Unbelievable
I can't believe the attitudes of these government employees!!! Is it impossible to get fired or what???? Not only are they rude but the facility is not cared for properly. Broken drop box for over a month?
Maybe planning on closing this facility soon, dirty building, has anyone ever noticed the exterior rock walls? Disgusting how our beautiful community has such a deteriorating post office
Mail was only delivered ONCE in 5 business days. No pickup or delivery, we had to physically go to the post office to collect our mail. Turns out, they "could not find our building". Have called several times and they will not answer the phone any any time of day.
I know I had mail coming today, because Amazon shipped an item to me, to be delivered today. No mail in my mail box, which is in itself rare, as I always receive mail. How can you confirm that the mailman(woman) did not deliver as scheduled?
Have tried to call for the last 3 days. No one ever answers, No voicemail. All times of day. Very poor customer service.
Shipped certified, return receipt to PO box at this office and they received parcel and then forwarded to another office ?? Whats up with that? No wonder they don't answer there phone.
Could the women behind the counter be more rude!!!! I understand having an occasional bad day, but consistently having them is just a bad attitude. My recommendation to them.....lose the clips on your shoulders and find new careers!!!!
You put the most important Christmas present and all my medications in the wrong box or put the key in the wrong box and it was taken by someone else.. the delivery mail must not have a grammar school education to do that or just doesn't care. I am disgusted with your service in Falcon Head. Not to mention the poor service at the main office,, You never answer your phone and, it hangs up after the message., when you call back you have to listen to the message again and after 1 minute it hangs up again...
You never answer the phone. It eventually just fails and hangs up.
Luckily skype is free and I work from home. So I'll just keep ringing and ringing and hopefully annoying someone.
This is why everyone hates USPS. Your service is ABYSMAL.
ANSWER YOUR PHONES!!!
We are moving to Lakeway n made a trip there to rent a post office box to start redirecting our mail.
TWO days ago "Edward" called n left a message on our phone that a "mistake" had been made and we should not have been rented our mailbox number! OOPS?
He left a call back number, but NO ONE ANSWERS the phones FOR TWO DAYS! We have no way of contacting them to see what they're doing or have done!! It's a nightmare!! HELP!!!!!!
Our mailman needs to find another job never delivers mail to right box our mail has been lost and or deliver to wrong box. My clients have deliver checks to us but we never get them so tired of dumb people who cannot do their job correct. FIX IT U.S. POST OFFICE
I believe our carrier is lazy as she refuses to get out of her vehicle and hand deliver mail when our office is only 20' from the mailbox. She left a hand written letter stating she would not deliver our mail because access was blocked, which it was not. I have spoken with 3 USPS employees in two days and the matter is still not resolved and our business mail is not being delivered. Very frustrating and time consuming for something that is supposed to be reliable.
To: Grumpy Old Man at Commanders Point (this is a guess, but probably correct for 90% of these useless, whiny, "there I feel BIG now" posts) -Reread your email as an objective party.Shocker #1 - Your mail is being delivered to your mailbox. Good god, NOOOOO! Not mail in the mailox.Shocker #2 - You have a mailbox twenty feet from your office and YOU are too lazy to go out and pick it up. Don't blame others when you are guilty of the same offense.Wanna get creative? Try removing your mailbox and see what happens!Don't cause problems where there are none. Pick your battles - this should not be one.From: the food stuck in your Santa Claus beard
