Re: Amazon prime delivery rant
I worked for USPS as a carrier for 30 yrs. Retired Oct'18.
One day Im delivering and just about to pull up to the next mailbox and an Amazon guy was coming up the other side slowly. As I get closer ,he has his hand up motioning me to stop. Im thinking heres another guy looking for some address. So what does he do? He pulls right in front of me, gets out and goes to his truck and gets a package for the house Im just about to deliver mail to! He walks slowly up to the door and back as Im shaking my head in disbelief ! He just gets in to his car and goes, never looking at me. I was about to scream at him, but kept my cool this time.
While Im on the subject, these other delivery guys,all of them,Fed Ex, UPS,ect. now think its OK if they have a small package that its OK to put in the mailbox if they can?? Its not, and they are aware of it also.Too lazy to do their job to go to the door of the house. And Im not talking long distances either. ( Ill give exceptions for that one house that cant be seen from the road). I can tell you numerous times that I pull up to a box ready to put a handful of mail into it, and see a package jammed into the box with no room for the mail. Well, from there it goes straight to the ground.Rain or not. (Its what we were instructed to do. Sometimes they told us to bring it back to the PO) Mail goes into the box, nothing else. The box isnt for their use or anyone else for that matter. No ones allowed to go into your box to look, or put flyers or business cards in there either. It might sound petty, but people tell me they had outgoing mail for me, but I missed it? Why, because some idiot came and threw their flyer , or package in on top of whats already in there,making it unseen.
But, I did leave the flyers that a neighborhood kid left, looking to cut grass or babysit.
I wont mention the cheap people that dont mail their Christmas cards to neighbors, but will walk around and just put them in mailboxes after hours, thinking that its OK?? That gets picked up and sent back to whoever left it, if there's a return name on it, or it ends up somewhere in the systems "postage due" section. To me thats just as bad as someone sending an email saying Happy Birthday, when they used to send an actual card!( I got to go get an aspirin, that jobs still getting to me! LOL)
