Mailmen are lazy. I had one in my area that would not give me mail because someone would park in front of my mailbox. Instead of getting their lazy butt out and put the mail in I went for a week without mail. That is not fair if someone parks in front of a mailbox. Especially when the police said the car had a right to park there. Unbelievable.

Neither rain, nor snow, nor sleet or hail, will stop the US Mail! Oh really??????????

It will be only a matter of time until the postal service is no longer needed with the way everything can be done by computer now. Then they will all have to find real jobs like the rest of us.

Lazy- There is a reason why they do not get out of their vehicle when the mailbox is blocked. Imagine if several mailboxes on the carrier's route were blocked, then your mail would be delayed and then you would be complaining that your mail was late. Either that, or they can get out, taking more time and pay which means in the long run you would pay more for postage. Bad enough people complain when stamps go up a penny.

Dave, there will always be a need for a Postal Service is one form or another. Mainly for people whose identities get stolen when making online bill payments, or when their online banking screws up a payment. I have heard enough stories from people who have had to pay a hundred bucks or more to get their accounts straightened out. They say it is safe and convenient, but when things go wrong it is a major headache. You can buy a lot of stamps with a hundred bucks.

It is a real job. Try having to walk to every single house dropping off mail in rain, heat, sleet, storm, and etc.

We're in zip code 19508 - we didn't get mail on Saturday either and I heard at work roady that lots of people in other zips didn't get their mail delivery. At least Reading was up front about it - all the other post offices are keeping quiet.

Carriers working from an LLV are not required to exit the vehicle to deliver mail to a box that is blocked. Insurance and safety purposes. Either ask the knothead blocking it to kindly move it so the driver may deliver, or get used to picking it up at the Post Office. Call your local Postmaster and find out for yourself.

It was a little aggravating to hear that some places didn't get mail after we went into work Friday night to process the mail for delivery on Saturday (yeah, I work in the Reading area). There were 17 call-offs and I quite frankly don't blame them! Why risk life and limb to get to work when the roads were NOT great and that was before we got another foot of snow within the time frame we were all at work!

For all you people that have no lives and have to be able to read your junk mail every day, there is nothing that important that you get by mail that can't wait one day.

Why do you break the law and then expect the letter carrier to deliver your mail? If you want your mail delivered for goodness sakes move your car from the mailbox. Why should the letter carrier get out of his car for you?

Why do you park in front of the mailbox and expect the mailman to deliver your mail. The mailman is not lazy. Our mailbox has a NO PARKING sign on it. If yours does not have one then go to Home Depot and buy one. Mailmen are NOT lazy, and obviously your mailman is doing his job. He is not supposed to get out of his car to deliver your mail.

It is amazing how many postal employees do get to work in blizzards and hurricanes. How many times has any one seen" Postal Service closed" on the new scroll at the bottom of their TV!! People should be more fired up about how schools are closed before a flake falls.

Seriously people. I'd like to see you walk 10 miles ( I have no truck)daily and deliver mail in the rain, sleet snow & heat. R u kidding me??? I bet you had off when it snowed. So you should stop complaining try our job for a week and tell me how you like it on those days. As for the idiot saying to get a real job I want to see you try also...

people take these jobs knowing exactly what they entail and then complain about them because putting paper in a box is so hard. That's why it's called a job, do it or quit. If walking your route is so tough, then get a truck, why should people miss their deliveries because it's difficult for you.
