This mail carrier of ours has been here since at least August. She hates driving packages to our door even though our house is not a haul up a driveway. We've talked to her about this as we run a business from the home and can't risk mail falling out of the mailbox. We called the USPS and they claim it will be fixed but it never is.
Recently, I placed an order for 16 paperback books on e-Bay. At the same time, my brother and I are having schoolbooks mailed to us and our normal stack of bills from 2 businesses and the household dealings for 4 adults are being sent.
It just so happens today all my books arrive and 5 schoolbooks do too. What does the mail person do? Stuff as many as she can in our mailbox. She uses rubberbands to attach them to the side and bottom. I scream and turn around to the house to grab my camera to document it. As I do, I see a USPS crate on my neighbor's front porch. I go over there and chat with my neighbor, out taking down Christmas decorations. How many pieces of mail are in her basket? 6 papers and 1 small package. I went back out and took pictures of my mailbox and then unwrapped my books. One of my schoolbooks has damage and for a $127 book, I can't have that kind of damage and expect to sell it back. All the photos of my book conditions have been taken and I plan on developing them ASAP and having a chat with my mail carrier's supervisors.
