  • No, our carrier is a real trooper. He had a knee replaced, & is still pluggin along. Plus he carries dog treats in his pocket to give to my dogs & his other dog friends on his route.

  • I am a letter carrier and where this is no excuse for misdelery, there is a ton of pressure that has been added to us. They have added to our routes at least an hour per route over the last year. With the volume up again, its a time thing every single day now. I have worked for the USPS for 27 yrs and have seen it all. As with any company we have gone over to automation, which is computer generated reading of the mail. In the old days we used to case all the mail in the am, now it comes to us ready to go on the street, except for the magazines. Sometimes it feels like a circus act out there trying to juggle all the peices of mail that the computer screwed up for that day. Alert your carrier to what happened, he needs to know that he screwed up. Also if this is a big enough on going problem for you, contact the PO. Hopefully he was just having a bad day to match his bad attitude..good luck!

  • Before we moved our mail carrier was awesome! He lived right across the street and we knew him well. Now we have moved three blocks down and are no longer in his area. Our new carrier brings our bills consistantly late or not at all. Where we used to get mail nearly every day we get it only a couple of times a week now. If I leave things out for him to take sometimes he does, sometimes he doesn't. When he does it takes days longer for them to arrive then when I take them to the post office myself. So, in answer to your question, yes, our mail person is a total jerk.
