Yes, our postman did it again.

I feel the need to express something. Yes, I know this is their right but sometimes I wonder if they do this just to get on people's nerves.

My husband is currently holding a pink card for a certified letter. I could understand if this was a one time or even a few time thing but it is getting old.

Every single time we have a certified letter, he just leaves the pink card in our mailbox and leaves. ( I can recall I know of over ten seperate times he has done this)

He never knocks on the door, never attempts to deliver it.

I kid you not, in the going on six years I have lived in this apartment with my husband, he has never once delivered our certified mail. Only the slips.

The only way we get our certified letters is

a) if we happen to be out there when he delivers the mail


b) go and get the letters from the post office.

The problem I see is this...

It would take him less than a minute to walk from our mailbox to where our apartment is located. I have timed this doing the walking myself.

Second problem.. He delivers on Penny Royal Court which is the road that connects to our driveway that has about twenty mailboxes in a row for the tralier park across from us. He could drive his truck up to our apartment from that.

We can always tell when it is our normal mail carrier because of the way it is handled. If it is a sub mail carrier, they always deliver.

It isn't just letters that get this treatment, it is also our packages, he either just leaves them outside, not trying to knock or just leaves the pink card in the mailbox. If we have letters marked "Do not bend" he bends them anyways and jams them into our mailbox. He also has a habit of hiding these pink cards in the junk mail. Not in the fold of the sales ads but in between the sales ads themselves.

I understand as I stated this is their right but don't we have rights as mail receivers to be treated better?

Tomorrow when we go to the post office to get the certified letter, I am thinking about talking to the manager about his actions. Like I said, I could overlook a few times but every single time since we lived here?

Can anyone give me advice on how to approach the manager about this?
