Really Bad Policy

I thought the United States Postal Service was suppose to deliver our mail in a timely fashion and be thoughtful to what they do. Obviously, I was very seriously wrong.

This happened a few years ago, complaints was done, and it was taken care of. That was until a few weeks ago.

Myself and my husband were shocked when we received a cancellation notice from one of our bills. A few days later a letter of correction was sent to us, saying they had received the payment the next day after the notice went out.

We dismissed it as an error. That was until this month...

We received not one but three notices from the places. One was Truck Insurance, One was Doctor's and the other was the Light Bill.

The person who lives in Apartment 2 is a nice older gentlemen. I was expecting a letter and last week had placed another payment in the mail. When I went out to check the mail for the day, the envelope was still there and he came out to explain why.

The "Mailman" will not stop unless he has mail to deliver. It doesn't matter if there are letter's going out or not. He just blows on by. He said he had reported him to the post office and he stopped for a while but then he started again.

A few months ago, the same mail man had left a package, not a notice but the package, sitting on our front porch. True we weren't expecting it but never the less it was there, the box was drenched with rain. Thankfully the contents were fine. I called and made a complaint.

Then today, I got very upset.

I was expecting a package either today or Monday. This package was clearly marked Media Mail. I would think that as a mail carrier, he would know not to leave a package like that out in the weather.

I was up at ten am. Our mail doesn't run until between one and one thirty each day. When I walked outside at one fifteen to check the mail, there was my package, sitting on the porch in plain sight of anyone. He didn't knock or anything, just left it there. Had I been fifteen more minutes, the rain would have gotten to it and ruined the book and movie inside.

He could have at least knocked. The truck was in the driveway, proving we were home. We don't live in the nicest of neighborhoods and this mailman is also known for hiding bills, handwritten letters and other things in the pages of the junk ads. I know for a fact he didn't knock because I was sitting by the door since I woke up.

I just don't understand how a goverment worker can have such a disrespect for mail recievers. All I know is I am very upset and am wondering if anyone else has had this type of situation and how I can go about it without being too rude.
