This is an email from a neighbor
Has anyone else had trouble with the mail carrier who covers Quincy Place (and, I assume, nearby streets)? This is a youngish woman who is always making personal phone calls as she delivers the mail. She refuses to deliver to my downstairs neighbor (instead putting her mail in the upstairs box), often won't take my outgoing mail (sometimes dumping it on the ground), and has recently lost two of my packages (one of which had vermicomposting worms in it, which are now almost certainly dead -- the P.O. can't find them at all now). Oh, and those packages? She never left me delivery notices for them. I only know they should have arrived because I had tracking numbers for them.
Both my roommate and I have called to complain several times about our mail carrier, but her behavior has never improved, and no one from USPS has ever gotten back to us. I just wrote a letter to the Inspector General, but I'd love to know if ours is the only household with these difficulties. I'm also happy to keep the blog updated (if anyone is interested) with the progress of my Inspector General complaint.
