I had a transmission shop call me today, seems he has not been paid for work and parts going back to June. I called bookeeping dept, they assured me they have been sending the checks to him. $ months is a long time to wait for money. "checks in the mail"

one day whilst working the "window" at the PO a woman came in complaining she had not received her insurance check that the insurance company said they mailed ten days ago. just so happened i sorted that check that morning, the post mark was two days old.
i have a 1000 more stories just like that one.
how bout the passport that sat on the issuing agents desk for three weeks before he mailed it.
how bout the time............

I don't have 1000 stories to tell but I do have a few. I have a stack of 1st class mail that took 5-14 days to get from Michigan to Mississippi. I have one letter from my son that took three weeks to travel 120 MILES. I could have walked there in that length of time. I mailed an oversized envelope with a computer disk in it to Chicago about three months ago. It hasn't made it there yet.

I have no personal beef with the USPS. My rural carrier and I have been friends for 25 years and I have gotten my mail from the same post office for 50 years. Something has changed over the years - I don't know what. I do know that if I have something important I don't trust the USPS with it any more.

CHICAGO is the worst hub in the postal system. some say it's because of all the "blacks" that work there.

Coinkydink .....maybe.

The first Clod realized that his mail was missing just happened to be an expensive computer disc he was wairing for.

Is there any way these discs are identifyable and maybe a temptation to mail handlers?

Just a question, not an accusation of dishonesty!

USPS workers please do not jump on me!! I am sensitive and delicate. ;-)

lways possible Lenore. At the PO I work at in a college town there was a guy (A temporary non career fill in guy) He sat on the line sorting letters and he would come across a birthday card looking envelope and into his baggy crotch to the knees pants it would go. He was there about a month and suddenly one morning armed men came swarming out of the walls. He left in cuffs. The problem is that in it's infinite wisdom the Postal Service usually does not charge the guy with a federal crime choosing instead to prosecute in local court as any other ordinary theft.
