If I get a package my fat lazy mailman will stay in his vehicle and blow the horn until you come out and get it. When I order something and it is shipped 1st class by The USPS it takes about nine days after shipping to receive it. UPS or FedEx take about 2 or 3 days. Another reason the USPS is in trouble is their attitude. The Chuckey post office on the 11-E is a prime example. They have smarmy dispositions and are just plain rude sometimes. You walk in, they are looking down not busy and they will just keep looking down not acknowledging you till finally they will look up and get out a weak 'help you?'. Pathetic!

Goodness. I know there are inconveniences. It would be nice to speak with respect to a postal worker, or if that's not possible, a few nice words in a note might be helpful. Speaking or writing to the Postal Worker shows respect for him/her as a person. They're no less of value than a CEO of a large company, or the POTUS. They do honest work for their hard-earned dollars.
Nastineness and poor attitude toward others is not the way to engender kindness and helpfulness. And, while not mixing Church & State, on a personal level, it's not Christian, either.(Even non-believers can at least acknowledge Christ as a great philosopher.)
Look for the good and not the bad. Stop complaining and think about what you can do to achieve your goal (i.e. mail pickup from the Postbox). I'm sure any postal worker who knows a person is disabled or feeble, or has to drive 40 miles out of their way to mail a letter, would pick up the mail.
I left a piece of mail out today, not because I couldn't get to the Post office, but because it was inconvenient, since I had other work to be done at home. If the deliverer doesn't take the mail, I'm not going to be upset, I'll take it later. If it is taken, then I'll appreciate the gesture.
Stop complaining about others, look into the nmirror and ask yourself how "BS" and someone should just do their job as YOU percieve it, I wouldn't wonder if I found out you felt this way about many other things. I'd ask myself, why am I s dissatisfied with my circumstances.
Good luck with resolving your problems.

My mail person works out of the Chuckey post office and I couldn't be more pleased. She always comes up the driveway and puts my packages in a drop box I have beside my basement door. Never had any problem with delivery times on packages I've sent out either. I always use Priority mail and they usually arrive at their destination within 3 days.

While I am disgusted by some of the things that my "colleague" said in his posts. He has a point, no matter the weather or other conditions we are there at every address in the US, 6 days a week. Yet we are invisible, nobody thinks twice about seeing us on the street or in our trucks unless they have a problem. Personally though, I am proud to be a part of the USPS, most of the older guys have forgotten about customer service and forgotten that its every address that allows us to keep our jobs.

Ok. I came in late on this conversation but from what i have read so far. Mr. Disgruntled Postal carrier do you really need to be an ass about it? I know that you don't work harder than myself.

I just recently changed carriers in a residential area with my box on the street. Bingo all of a sudden not one piece of my mail has been picked up since. Nice! Just an heads up ( I have contacted the post office and he is correct ) they are not required to pick up mail.

So here's my solution that i did. Since i travel most of the time and can not be here to make sure that i postage is being picked up. I either do it on line and eventually they will not need to pick up or send anything as far as bills. All else go online and schedule a pick up for anything larger.

I agree with you. I make sure my important mail is handled by ME. I have a lazy mailwoman that has been reported time and time again over the years and nothing gets done about her at all! She leaves mine and other folks mail in the wrong box or comes back after hours and throws it in the box literally. After turning her in I always get my mail lost or sent back or she even had the gall to pull up into my drive with an attitude trying to bitch me out! My neighbors have the same problems with her. When you go to the Greeneville post office and tell them they know EXACTLY whom you are talking about and they just shake thier heads. They will tell you they will talk to her but then the crazy cycle starts all over again with mail disappearing and so on. I even turned her in to nashville and they refered it back to greeneville and again...not a darn thing got done. She rides around with a bluetooth running her mouth and stops at the local stores and runs her mouth while the mail sits in an unlocked unattended vehicle for at least thirty minutes at a time. Heaven forbid if you get a package. She will toss it anywhere. The crazy B put a package in a broken down vehicle on my property once and I didn't know it was there for a week. My name for her is the Technical B*tch. She will always say.. technically I don't have to do this or that ...to try and get out of her job of DELIVERING THE MAIL. Ten years plus I have delt with this idiot. Hope she gets run over by a drunk driver.

I had exact problem as original poster. I called USPS, given case number, transferred to area customer service. They told me they do not visit mailbox unless there is mail being delivered. Was new to me. So they conferenced in the mgr of our local post office. Same story. I guess me and the original poster were the only people in the USA that did not know this. This sux because at old house (same zipcode, ONE BLOCK AWAY) we always had our mail picked up. Guess we were lucky.

It's not our responsibility to pick up your out-going mail when there is no mail to deliver. It is a courtesy that some carriers do voluntarily but picking up mail from an unofficial location (i.e., a home mailbox or public place) is NOT a job requirement. You should take your mail to an official USPS drop box or to the post office.
That is absolutely NOT true! As a retired letter carrier, I can assure you that if a letter carrier sees the red flag signal 'up', they are REQUIRED to check the box for outgoing mail, and collect that outgoing mail. What is NOT permitted, is for customers to raise the red flag when they have no outgoing mail. Devices that signal mail delivery has been made are not permitted if the

Not permitted if the letter carrier must physically 'trigger' the signaling device, ie: lowering the flag, or ringing a doorbell.

I believe Federal employees are overpaid and feel entitled.
Talk about an overworked, underpaid employee,
work in a State prison for one day and see how great you have it.
You should pick up residents' mail just to be decent.

Maybe your carrier decided it was time for you to get off your lazy butt and go to the post office yourself. Your stamps pay for delivery, not pick up. The red flags only signal that mail in there, it does not require us to pick it up! If you don't like living in the country, then move to the city. Are you elderly or disabled? Probably not! Probably just too lazy to go to the post office and you want your mail carrier to do your work for you! Mail carriers are the hardest working people in the country and get no respect. Rain, snow and storms, they must work. You're probably just upset because your foodstamps didn't come in the mail.
Let me guess your one of those rude ass dumb ass peope that work for our government and dont do your job right because you think your to good to do your job Why not take it. Oh yea because your rude and lazy and dntdeserve to get paid as much as you do.

I have a great suggestion to resolve your problem...get a post office box at the Mosheim post office. You will kiss your mail carriers butt after you have to deal with the freaky clerk in that office that thinks she is the queen of Mosheim and is always stating she doesn't have time to assist the customers when you go the the window for service. She has to be the rudest postal clerk ever and I wish they would get rid of her. The other ladies in that office are always so polite and helpful, she just always seems put out when you ask her for even a postage stamp!But..I would never wish she got hit by a drunk driver. That's a bit rude and shows your lack of education. You are probably a stay at home mom with a child who has no daddy and all you have to do is find fault with folks and stir the puddin' by trouncing your welfare butt all over the neighborhood because you are damned jealous of the fact that you are not capable of finding a job.

I have had the same problem with mail not getting picked up. Never had that issue all of my life. Guess I don't feel so bad that you postal priiiicks will be out of a job in years to come. Thanks for the comments mr over 30 years.... Felt bad about that until now. Bad service =. No job. Good luck!:-).

Just adding on here 30 year dip... I live in the city. Used to live in the country. My mail carrier was far and above the best. While there are many good ones that will loose their job soon. You do not deserve yours. I am a friggin server. Worked my way up from being homeless for unfortunate reasons. We all have to work hard to make ends meat. If you dont like having to work....try the homeless thing loser. Believe me it is not all it is cracked up to be. You should be thankful you have a job. But you won't. You are a self absorbed self centered piece of garbage that I am ashamed that gives the postal service a bad name.
