I asked this before and I need more help. My postal service is getting worse and worse. It is now I am not getting anything.
I have a locked mailbox, I have my name properly on my mailbox and yet my mail doesn’t come. I sent myself one letter each day last week and not one has come.
When I complain to the post office all they can say is “I should send it certified return receipt.”
There’s a typically bullshit answer for you. You are supposed to spend $2.95 to send a letter to yourself? I don’t think so.
Obviously you talked to a supervisor, or clerk, who misunderstood the problem.
Where else can I go. It is obvious there is something wrong and my local station Logan Square won’t help.
Where else can you go?
Try posting your question in the usnet group alt.snail-mail. There are many people there who can perhaps give you a better answer, but you might also have to be more specific.
Complaining to the top ain’t gonna work here, the postmaster general etc., because your problem is on the bottom.
Call the station, and ask to speak to the carrier of your route. If you don’t know which specific route you are on, you can find out by looking up your own address, in the zip code lookup section of usps.gov.
Start at the bottom, ask the carrier why you get no delivery. They may have your address tagged as vacant, or some other problem.
Supervisors rarely know this specific information, if you call, they write out a note, slap it down on the carrier case, or maybe never even pass it on at all.
The carrier may be entirely unaware that there is a problem, and yes, most do care.
Start at the bottom, ask the guy who delivers it. As someone else said, the name on the outside may mean nothing, you might have to have it inside the box, or if you are at a mutliple dwelling address, does your mail contain your full correct address, including apartment number?
Do you leave for periods of time and never pick up you mail, so that it would appear that the address is vacant?
These are the kind of things the carrier needs to know, to correct the problem.
Ask the carrier to correct it, and make out a warning card for your address. These are reminders that are cased into the address every day for thirty days, so that anyone delivering the address can be aware of the correct handling.
If that method doesn’t correct the problem, then feel free to complain higher. Fill out a complaint card, but realize that most of the postal hierarchy above >carrier>line supervisor>station manager, is administrative in nature, and could care less about your delivery problem, they just pass it back to the lower three.
Start at the bottom, work up thru the first three, the others are a waste of time.
Sugar works better than vinegar, also, but you need not kiss anyones butt to get them to provide the service paid for.
Give that a try.
