The mail!!! I know this sounds trivial, but it driving me nutty!

What time does your mail arrive at your house? It is almost 6 and ours still has not arrived,, sometimes I think she just by passes our street,,,when the fill in mail carrier comes we get it about noon,, I depend on checks for my job,, and find it ridiculous the mail sometimes gets here at 8pm??? I know it sounds like a stupid thing to complain about, but it is driving me batty, so I was wondering is this normal,, who could I call to get it here earlier? Thanks so much!

  • If your USPS is like mine, the postal workers are paid by the hour, especially on weekends, so the longer they take to do their route, the more they get paid.

  • Ours comes anytime between 10am and 7pm. We use to have a great carrier that was always very prompt. He was always here by 11am. Now the route is a training route and we get all different carriers. It drives me crazy!

  • Get a post office box and then you can pick it up whenever you want. I had to do that a few years ago.

  • If it's a check from your employer see if they can transfer it to your account that way you don't have to wait.

  • I definitely would talk to someone at your local post office. Getting your mail that late is not really convenient, or normal, really. I get my mail around 11 a.m., 1 p.m. at the VERY latest.

  • No direct depost,, they don't do that,, but it also is everything else that comes,, stuff from son's school, bills etc,, nothing like getting ready to go to bed and finding out your electric bill is $500! LOL

  • Our is here by noon if the regular carrier delivers it the stand in gets it here by two. They are off work at 4pm so no deliveries after that here.
