Before I moved, I apparently had the worlds best mailman… he ALWAYS left me notices when I would miss a package with detailed information on where to pick them up.. on the rare occasion he would leave a package, he would put it some where out of sight with a little note on where he left it, mail was always on time, never sent mail to the wrong address, I simply had NO problems.. I WISH I could say that now!
We apparently had 4 small packages attempted to be delivered USPS on Saturday while we were out.. there were NO notices left in my mail box that ANY-THING had tried to be delivered, he didn’t leave the packages at the community center (main apartment security building), and I didn’t even know they came until I checked online at their shipment status! So my husband goes down to the post office to ask what he can do since our
lazy mailman didn’t leave any notices telling us we could pick them up, only to be told “uhm, we don’t have any packages for you in our storage facility.. you need to call the supervisor and speak with them.. here’s the number ###-###-####” so he brings me the number and goes back to work.. meanwhile I call them… the guy tells me “there are 4 packages waiting for you at the post office on Michael st. to complain about your mail service is a separate issue, you will need to contact ###-###-####” Mind you THAT is the place my husband has already been!
All postal workers are not morons, my old mailman was terrific, our old post office was very efficiant.. but this Grand Rapids, MI shit is getting old! Leaving a freaking piece of paper in a mailbox doesn’t make your job any harder! This is like the 10th time we have had this happen, only we have always been able to pick up our packages before.. now I am sitting here wondering if our hundreds of dollars of merchandise will be returned to the sender because our mailman is an asshole incompetent. Remind me NEVER to order from overstock.com again too, since apparently they ship like every item in separate boxes and use USPS as their main shipping source.
Update: My wonderful husband tracked down my packages and didn’t leave the post office until he got them! It must have looked like a scene from one of the Terminator movies… “if its not here…. I’LL BE BACK!” lol but wheeeeeeee their coming home!! *breaths a deep sigh of relief* everything in my world is in balance again… can I get a collective sigh of ohm………..
