I can't tell you how glad I am to see that I'm not the only one who hates, hates, hates this post office.
The service is unconscionable! I have lived in the neighborhood since 1995 and I can't even count how many times this location has dropped the ball when it comes to package delivery. I will wait and wait and wait for packages that were supposed to arrive weeks earlier and then get a ""FINAL NOTICE"" slip in the mailbox. Final notice? What happened to the first notice? Or the second one, for that matter? The fact is, they never left them. They never attempted delivery. Oh, they'll say they did--but they lie. They're just lazy. Plain and simple. They do not do their job.
My most recent run-in with them involved a package that had been sent initially through FedEx. It was a SmartPost package so the delivery was to be made through the local post office. After waiting nearly 10 days, I got in touch with FedEx only to find that they had left the package off at Cathedral Station 3 DAYS AFTER I HAD ORDERED IT. I then called them to find my package and to complain. When I began to do so, the girl on the phone said, ""Okay, hold on..."" and placed me on hold...for 10 minutes. I hung up and called back. It rang 3 times. She picked up the phone and hung it up. I then called back again and was put on hold for another 10 minutes. I called yet again. The phone rang 25 times and then clicked off. After finally getting through to someone, they located the package. I went in to pick it up the next day--and proceeded to wait in line for almost an hour. Each person in the line ahead of me had to wait 15-20 minutes for their package to arrive at the window. I wanted to kill someone and so did everyone else in line (including one girl who loudly complained that she'd just moved to the city and had to track down 10 packages that were delivered to this hole without her knowing it...)
This place is a pit of disrespect, laziness, arrogance and meanness. They should be ashamed of themselves.
CLOSE IT DOWN!
