I Hate the Post Office

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 85 People

    I have found mail actually gets most places

    fairly fast and the carriers seem OK, it is just the people who work at the windows at the post office mostly need to be medicated! Seriously, there is some sort of mental illness that they mostly have (OK, a few nice ones here and there of course, but not many!). They are...

    I worked for the post office

    as a TE when they shifted to CCA's. Luckily I took the first opportunity to get out of that horrible environment. I have worked for places like Albertsons and Safeway in the past as well. I would rather work there where the people were decent and days off existed then at the...

    I ordered something two day delivery from

    Chicago to Frederick, Md. I ordered it December 17. USPS lost it in Illinois. It showed up in town on Christmas Eve. Mark at the Frederick post office said it was on its way to my house. It never showed up. They ruined a nice part of my daughter's Christmas. Shame on them...

    Too Bad They Live Down To The Expectation We Have Of Them

    Now, I write this knowing there are exceptions. So, I am not saying 100% of the USPS team are slow, pokey and sure-to-die in the private sector.... but I must acknowledge that my experience is consistently BAD when I go to the Post Office. There will be 2 USPS people at a...

    Hostile and Corrupt

    My experience within the culture of the United States Postal Service can be described as demoralizing, desensitizing, hostile and corrupt.  How does this happen???  Only those who have been inside the organization understand.  I would much rather make less/spend less OR make...

    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...
