Park Slope & Prospect Heights Mail Sucks Redux
Everyone knows there's 'issues' with our mail carriers in the slope. I've had it all: Lost checks. Mail tossed on floor. Netflix DVD's viewed and taped back together then placed in our box!?! Wrong mail. No mail. Mail for delivery never picked up. Lost packages.Rant Number Two:
So I emailed the USPS and received a call back today. The supervisor says my usual postal carrier is on 'limited' work, something about not allowed to work more than a certain amount of hours. So they have random carriers covering for him. He tells me that recently I've had the same mail carrier for 3 days now and he's talked to the person and I shouldn't have any problems anymore.
So basically my block never has a constant mail carrier. So far I've got some guy regularly for the past 3 days. He'll probably not drop the mail on the floor today, but what about next week when another guy is sent to cover this block? Is this happening on other blocks? No full time, regular assignment postal carriers?
Give it a while and the same problem will happen again. It's been going on for as long as I've rented here.
WTF is up with Brooklyn mail? I've never lived anywhere like this. I've had stuff perfectly addressed to me sent back with "NO SUCH ADDRESS" stamps, only to be put in a new envelope TO THE EXACT SAME ADDRESS and arrive. Eventually. I've had zero mail delivery for days, and then stuffed full one day. I can't even count the number of things that have just "disappeared" that I found out about, much less the ones I didn't. Seriously, WTF. I have everything important that I can sent to my work now.Oh, and there's also someone in Bed-Stuy who says that his Time Out NY always disappears. Excellent, excellent stuff.
