Brenda Nickles was extremely distempered and unreasonable
My neighbor and I placed our mailbox away from the driveway for safety reasons after we hit a mailbox while pulling in and out with long equipment and while trying to avoid the boxes we drove down into a ditch, Brenda Nickels said she will not approve the location because 1. Our mailbox isn’t approved(even though we bought it from Lowe’s) 2. It’s not in the carriers way of travel( it’s exactly in the carriers way of travel on the left side of the road) 3. She needs to leave the car to drop in mail( she has never left her car to drop in mail I have security camera proof) 4. The original spot where the box’s were for many years is where they should continue to stay for more years because of mailbox seniority 5. Just because it’s convenient for us to have our boxes away from the driveway for trailer access doesn’t mean anything 6. It’s not her problem that the mailbox gets in the way of our driveway as we pull in with semi trucks and trailers, in fact she said it’s not her fault we can’t drive a trailer 7. She claims that we filled the area behind our mailbox with gravel and when she is pulling in to drop off mail her car will cave in and flip into the field( the gravel has been there for years and it’s compact and u can’t collapse the soil it’s only 1foot deep). Brenda Nickels was extremely distempered over the phone and in person when I met her in the postal office and ended up telling me she was busy and I should leave and she will call me later when there was only one other person behind me in line. When I asked for a list of mailbox placement rules and to show me what it is that we are violating and about the process of mailbox placement she said she didn’t have access to that information and couldn’t answer my question at the moment. She has now detained my neighbors mail from delivery and refuses to deliver it until he moves the box back to the driveway. Brenda has been extremely unreasonable in handling this situation and prompted in raising her voice numerous times while interrupting me during the conversation while trying to appear intimidating. Her office was unable to provide me with the phone number to her supervisor in Seattle they said they didn’t have it. I will be filing a claim because I believe we have been personally attacked by Brenda and her statements and lack of duty and respect.
