post office rant

I've been ordering Christmas gifts through the internet. One such gift required a signature upon delivery so I opted to have it delivered to the office, since chances were good I wouldn't be at home when it would be delivered.

I looked at the package tracking yesterday morning to find that it was out for delivery. The mailman was running late, but did arrive before I left work. But, no package was delivered. I thought it was strange, but the tracking hadn't been updated so I didn't know what was going on.

This morning, I checked the tracking again to find that a delivery attempt was made. Interesting, seeing that we were at the office, but no one stopped in to deliver a package. Not only that, but now we have to go pick the package up at the post office. How annoying. We could reschedule the delivery, but I don't see how that would work seeing that we were there the first time delivery was "attempted".

This is hardly the first issue we've had with our office mailman, but it is the most annoying one. I think he might be the laziest mailman on earth. The only time we get good service is when he is off work and there's a substitute working.

I can totally relate to this, and it really makes you mad!! My most memorable was with UPS though. I had a client once ask if I would be in on a certain day, it was a day after a holiday, so she knew if she should pay extra to overnight her job. I assured her that yes, I'd be there. So, she pays extra to overnight the job. I wait and wait, kept asking the desk if UPS came. Nope, no UPS (UPS WAS running that day). So the NEXT work day, I call UPS to find out what the problem was, and point out that I know my client overnighted her package, I even gave them the tracking number. I was told that the information they had on file, was that "the business was closed for the day and they were unable to make delivery". I assured them that we were not closed, that I had specifically been at work waiting for this particular job, and once again reminded them that the client paid extra to have it delivered, because the client knew we were indeed open. It just irks the crap out of you. Just people being lazy....

I'd call them and make them aware of the problem. Let the lazy bugger DO HIS JOB.

Ok, I'm done ranting now...

Brian went to the office on Friday to look for the pick up notice that was supposedly left, only to find that the package was sitting on the front stoop. Interesting. I wonder who signed for that?!?!
