Gents,

(This is Coltman77's son, Sean. I've yet to join the site, but I intend to in the near future.)

Anyhow, my dad and I used to have a delightful mailman. He was friendly and even dished the dirt on some of my more insane neighbors*.

(*When I say insane, I'm not kidding. One person was determined that bird shit on her mailbox was –– I kid you not –– Anthrax. The same lunatic talks to invisible [presumably] people in her yard, told another neighbor that she could levitate ... eh. You get the idea. I could keep going about that psycho and it's irrelevant.)

Not too long ago, however, The Good Mailman (tm) was replaced by a real shitheel. Literally every damned time I've had a "delivery confirmation" package arrive, the putz will literally throw the package near my front doorstep and scurry back to his truck without even bothering to ring the doorbell.

Further, this jackass –– always talking on his cell when I see him –– once didn't even bother to walk down and deliver a package to my house because there weren't any cars in the driveway. He left a notice that I needed to either reschedule delivery OR pick the fucking thing up myself :-|

But what this cocksucker did today went beyond laziness. I'm anticipating at least two packages, one of which is of significant value. I was at the computer earlier, about to conclude my work for the day (I'm a free-lance copy editor), and I watched this prick zoom down the opposite side of my street. He stopped at a couple of mailboxes, went up a cul-de-sac north of my house, then saw him haul ass back down aforesaid side of street and, a'la Mario Andretti, he turned and raced past my side of the street, turned the corner and disappeared.

Long story made short: the dick skipped delivering mail to at least 20 houses.

I was about to leave as this was happening, so I caught up to the fellow on an adjacent block. He saw fit to deliver a package there ... but now, some two hours later, the mailbox "flags" on my street are still up.

If this were a one-time thing, I'd shrug it off: it's entirely possible the guy would have some reason, however half-assed, for skipping half a block only to deliver on another.

But that's the crux of the matter: it ain't a one-time thing. This moron's not only made me jump through hoops to simply collect my mail (and so on and so forth), but he's even gone so far as to stuff packages into my mailbox that ... well, how he got them in there, I don't know. I'm a bodybuilder and consider myself a reasonably strong guy, but holy fuck: this clown managed to shove a ten-pound package into a four-pound box!

For the short-attention span crowd, I apologize ... I know that's an extremely long-winded way to go about asking a rather simple question:

How can I effectively lodge a complaint against my shithead mailman?

I've tried USPS's site; it's as useful as tits on a boar for that purpose (and, I'm sure, for good reason: if I were a USPS employee, I'd probably protect my own, too).

Any and all input's appreciated.

Thanks, ARF ....

-Sean

If I recall correctly, larger processing centers are scored on how well their deliver their packages, and the manager's pay can be linked to this. I bet they'd be quite interested to know about your mailman.

he doesn't even ring the bell, he just throws my packages under my car and leaves a note on my car

Been there, done that...most postal workers are just that, postal workers. The mgrs are scared shi'ite-less of the union and won't dare piss them off. They're bosses won't do squat to them and they know it.

Good luck my friend, we lucked-out and our problem finally resigned. Our new carrier is great, the old one was a bitch with a capital "C".

i had a similar problem with our old mail-carrier. i called the toll free number in the phone book, which puts you in contact with a regional head office. i relayed my complaints, and the next day, the local office called and apologized. i never had another problem.

This works in my experience. In my case mine must not have been the only complaint, he was replaced the next day.

Complain to the postmaster of your zip code. Tell them exactly what you saw, no more, no less.

His 'boss' would be the postmaster for that facility. In all seriousness, PMs generally don't allow carriers to fail routes like that. File a formal complaint.

If that fails, the bigger hammer is the Postal Inspection Service. These guys (and gals) do not fsck around... Complaint Form

Complain to the postmaster of the station he/she works out of. Your neighbors also need to complain if applicable.

We had a situation just like this several years ago. Fat lazy carrier would throw packages under the mailbox, sometimes in the street, but usually at the wrong address despite being properly marked.

Several neighbors (more than a dozen) banded together and called, wrote and visited the postmaster with numerous incidents of mis-deliveries, damaged packages, and skipped deliveries in the span of one week.

We had a new carrier starting the following Monday.

Use the USPS site to send an email to the great postmaster in the sky....Then this dude's boss is going to be calling you asap. That is how you get their attention, but then they can also lose your mail occasionally because of it.

I have a similar situation. The mail carrier that delivers in my neighborhood is a rather cute girl about the same age as I. I've exchanged greetings with her a few times but that's about it. I normally have no problem picking up girls, but can't seem to think of anything clever to say, aside from asking how fast the mailtruck goes.

Given that you've taken the Lord's name in vain (something even I don't do; and, yes, I am indeed often profane), I can only assume you're being sarcastic?


I mean, seriously: your sole purpose in the thread is to play Mr. Self-Righteous and nitpick my language?

IF you're actually for real, please refer your stiff-collared self to Google, whereupon you might search for the Style Over Substance fallacy –– assuming, of course, that you're not being sarcastic (whatwith the stupid focus on my "countless" profane words *rolls eyes*)

Since you've given me no reason to think otherwise, I can only further presume that you're one of those morons who believes swearing's somehow synonymous with a limited intellect. If the latter is indeed the case, I recommend you extend thy Google research to include bifurcation a.k.a. the false dilemma a.k.a. the false dichotomy a.k.a. the black-and-white fallacy a.k.a. the either-or fallacy (among several others: it's the same thing. Essentially, according to that precept, you're being a simple-minded fuck).

Incidentally, since I (Sean, not the primary account holder: kindly don't hold this against him, "genius religious man") do have an MA in linguistics, you might be interested to know that, without fail, I've yet to meet a professor who believe the words "fuck" or "shit" have even modestly satisfactory euphemisms. (Sorry: "crap" will never have the same impact nor utility as "shit.")

Perhaps fuck, shit et al. offend you –– but then, that's not our problem. If you miss the boat because you're all hung up on a couple of "cussie words," I can only guess that's so given a wacky interpretation of your religion.

If that is indeed the case, I'm here to tell ya, buddy: you'd best pull your head out of your ass. Earlier today, I fed and clothed a street person that lives in the woods behind my girlfriend Alison's place –– yet, some stupid, self-satisfied ass like you wants to judge me given the fact that I write words like "cocksucker" and "shit" in an Internet post.

That's so typical, but it's still so damned insulting: fellow self-proclaimed "Christians" who get all excited over someone saying "fuck" but who don't do a FUCKING THING when it comes to TRULY heeding Christ's words.

I'm through with you. If you were joking (apropos your handle), I do sincerely apologize ... however, you gave me no indication that you were teasing. What you said was inflammatory and, in other forums, I'd let you know that I can document what I say with pics. Somehow, methinks you cannot –– but then, you didn't anticipate as much when you tried to derail the topic withyour stupid "oooh, bad language" trolling, did you?

Many thanks to all of the ON-topic replies. My apologies that I've not attended you ... long story made short, I've had an incredibly rotten day, and this red herring nitpick bitch of a guy caught me at the worst possible time.

40+ years Postal experience in my family.
Your complaint will go unresolved.
Safety, attendance, and violence are the only issues that can get carriers disciplined, and ultimately fired.
(Could take up to 24 months through arbitration)
Productivity and job performance are non issues. NALC and Obama assures this.
Management knows it, and does not want the paperwork headache. Nothing will happen complaining about carrier performance.
Seriously

The undelivered mail is going "somewhere", I'd go up the chain and tell the highest person you can get that the mail is not being delivered, houses are being skipped, and you also suspect theft of your mail or that it is getting dumped. [same thing] You'd be surprised at what they can do to check and see if mail is getting dumped or stashed somewhere.

Regardless what the other postal service people said,Call the postmaster or better yet go see him and tell him what is going on.If it happens again do the same and TELL him you will contact your senator or congressman about the problem if it is not resolved.Management ISNT afraid of the union and they will take action on serious problems and it sounds like they need to fire the asshole for the way he is delivering mail.

Given that you've taken the Lord's name in vain (something even I don't do; and, yes, I am indeed often profane), I can only assume you're being sarcastic?


I mean, seriously: your sole purpose in the thread is to play Mr. Self-Righteous and nitpick my language?

IF you're actually for real, please refer your stiff-collared self to Google, whereupon you might search for the Style Over Substance fallacy –– assuming, of course, that you're not being sarcastic (whatwith the stupid focus on my "countless" profane words *rolls eyes*)

Since you've given me no reason to think otherwise, I can only further presume that you're one of those morons who believes swearing's somehow synonymous with a limited intellect. If the latter is indeed the case, I recommend you extend thy Google research to include bifurcation a.k.a. the false dilemma a.k.a. the false dichotomy a.k.a. the black-and-white fallacy a.k.a. the either-or fallacy (among several others: it's the same thing. Essentially, according to that precept, you're being a simple-minded fuck).

Incidentally, since I (Sean, not the primary account holder: kindly don't hold this against him, "genius religious man") do have an MA in linguistics, you might be interested to know that, without fail, I've yet to meet a professor who believe the words "fuck" or "shit" have even modestly satisfactory euphemisms. (Sorry: "crap" will never have the same impact nor utility as "shit.")

Perhaps fuck, shit et al. offend you –– but then, that's not our problem. If you miss the boat because you're all hung up on a couple of "cussie words," I can only guess that's so given a wacky interpretation of your religion.

If that is indeed the case, I'm here to tell ya, buddy: you'd best pull your head out of your ass. Earlier today, I fed and clothed a street person that lives in the woods behind my girlfriend Alison's place –– yet, some stupid, self-satisfied ass like you wants to judge me given the fact that I write words like "cocksucker" and "shit" in an Internet post.

That's so typical, but it's still so damned insulting: fellow self-proclaimed "Christians" who get all excited over someone saying "fuck" but who don't do a FUCKING THING when it comes to TRULY heeding Christ's words.

I'm through with you. If you were joking (apropos your handle), I do sincerely apologize ... however, you gave me no indication that you were teasing. What you said was inflammatory and, in other forums, I'd let you know that I can document what I say with pics. Somehow, methinks you cannot –– but then, you didn't anticipate as much when you tried to derail the topic withyour stupid "oooh, bad language" trolling, did you?

Many thanks to all of the ON-topic replies. My apologies that I've not attended you ... long story made short, I've had an incredibly rotten day, and this red herring nitpick bitch of a guy caught me at the worst possible time.


Wow. Yeah, buddy, sarcasm was the name of the game. Note MY gratuitous use of vulgar language in the above post.

This is GD, you have to expect smart-ass answers/contributions.

Chillax.

BOTH OF YOU QUIT WITH THE BAD FUCKING LANGUAGE. I'M SERIOUS. I'LL TURN THIS THREAD AROUND AND TAKE YOU BOTH OUT TO THE FUCKING WOODSHED!

I'LL SHIP YOU OFF TO MILITARY SCHOOL, WITH THE GODDAMN FINKELSTEIN SHIT KID SON OF A BITCH.

I hate the media...

But this is one thing that the media can blow out of proportion in a way that only they know how.

It would be hillarious if you could tell your story to the local news outlet, get them to digitize your voice like you are a secret witness, then let the media turds go on a stake out in an unmarked vehicle to capture his daily hijinks. Seems the local media loves to parrot this catch phrase "working for you" and do these kinds of community policing activities cause then they get to use it in their self promoting advertisements.

I can just see them spending a few days getting the footage, then going all Chris Hansen on the dude asking him to explain what he's watching on the TV monitor as he tries to back track.


I HATE the media, I even hate the self promoting nonsense they do. But the postal dude's actions piss me off and he could stand to use some grief and unwanted attention.

Have you tried to talk to him yet?

I would just have a meeting of the minds with him, and elucidate my concerns. Also, a palm branch before the stick will help.

The Sermonator

A close relative to the Self-Promoter, the Sermonator trolls various comment forums to find some way to divert the conversation to his favorite subject –– most often something related to morals, religion or a particular political view. No discussion is too interesting and no community too engaged for the Sermonator to subvert into a tedious homily on his topic of choice.

This is probably the wisest option. Go regional.
