Postal Carrier Dubious Service

Normally, we don't have major delivery issues with the USPS. The occasional piece of mail ends up at the wrong house, but that's about the extent of it.



Today I was near the front door, heard someone on the front porch, and see the postman leaving. I go outside and get the mail. In the box is one of those brown "we missed you, come get your package from the post office" cards addressed to my mother. My first assumption is that I missed this yesterday. Then my mother notices that it has today's date and is telling her she can pick it up tomorrow.

I have my mom sign the card, and go chase after the postman. When I catch up with him, he tells me he "forgot the package" and would go get it. While he did deliver it, it seems strange that he had a card filled out already for the package he "forgot."
