    I Hate the Post Office!!!

    My husband used to work for the post office and they treated him sooooooooo bad.  He's considered a disabled veteran and all they did for him was give him a hard time and mock the military.  He was also a full-time student and they told him he had to quit school. ...

    I want to know why there is

    so much profanity at work. And why it's alright for some but not others. Even supervisors swear. But that's seems to be okay. What's the deal?

    Perishable And Crushed

    I ordered some food and it was sent 2nd day delivery. It arrived (in a lock box) 5 days later, because they put it in a lock box (Palm Springs, CA desert - hot) and all the Supervisor said was "we don't go to peoples doors" . . . not even for PERISHABLES? STUPID & COSTLY. On...

    Is This Even Legal?

    I have a great Mail Man, but the Re-Delivery Supervisor is a big jerk. He refuses to redeliver packages to my apartment complex even though according to USPS, we are eligible for re-delivery. Anyway, today he sent my mailman to my apartment to tell me that if I wanted re-delivery...

    Shudder At Going to the P.o.

    I used to visit the P.O. more than five times a week as I sell online. It didn't matter what PO I went to, downtown, uptown or the suburbs, there is always a line. And each PO always has to have some old anal-by the book- kind of person who will throw a fit, if a form is...

    Who Built This Place Anyway??

    One of the drawbacks of starting your own mail order business (even a teeny, tiny one) is the fact that you are going to have to spend a lot of time queuing in the post office.  It's amazing how after many long hours spent in those godawful places you can enter an...

    I Don't Understand The USPS
