I no longer use the PO on Hughes Creek. Never can get to the window...Someone always standing there catching the latest gossip. Don't think this is the purpose. It's not surprising they want to close it. You ppl need to have gossip parties...hole them at different houses every weekd 'LOL

No...the P.O is not a place of gossip. But in reality, every post office in the world is the same. Small town people do gather there. Was you waiting to get to the counter to get your mail?

Yes.small minded people that NEED to gossip do gather there. No, you are not supposed to get your mail over the counter unless it comes General Delivery. I needed stamps and money orders. There is usually someone propped up in the window blocking everyone. It is a place of business.not a place to mind everyone's business.

Ok Catty if it was that important to you why not be adult enough to say something instead of hiding behind a fake name

I think you must be a sad and miserable person. Did you bother to say excuse me, if you were in that big of a hurry you should have started out the day before!!!

Not everyone has a post office box . Where do you suggest they send it? Oh yeah... I have a good idea
LOL. Evidently you have no concept of what being small minded means. Not the size of your mind.for sure.

Every post office has people that gather to chat. It's the place where neighbors run into each other and exchange friendly conversation. Be glad that you live in a community that is small enough that your neighbors care enough to acknowledge you in a public place. If it bothers you to be social, you can always pay your bills online.

I don'y know who's worse here, Catty or Carly, but both of you trying to stir up trouble for no reason. There is still General Delivery within the Postal Service, it's just not available to local residents. You have to either rent a PO Box (can be no fee) or recieve street delivery. General Delivery is available to transients (up to 30 days)or people traveling the country. If you want to take off on your bicycle and travel the USA you can have mail/packages sent to you General Delivery to Post Offices along the way for you to pick up. The mail will be held for 30 days and if not claimed by then it will be returned to sender. You have no clue why the person is occupying the window, The Postmaster provides many services beside stamps and money orders. Wait your turn and you will also get one on one professional service. Be Nice.
