I agree, that lady wants to hold a conversation with everyone. She must have a "need" that she's not getting elsewhere. When others are working, the line goes so fast so the wait time doesn't last 30 minutes or so. She's BAD! When you have to mail a package, buying stamps at the supermarket doesn't always work. Not everyone has the scale and postage amounts down. I agree about the "slow down" of delivery -- is a concerted effort. We should all work as hard for that salary and benefits!

Email scan everything you need to send to someone and don't buy stamps anymore; pay bills too with your credit cards and stop using mail service.

Complaints are reasons why USPS is in high debt and need to cut their employee's and locations one by one.

How can they keep open in billions in debt anyway?

we here at the Utica Post Office had 99% accuracy until Washington DC closed us. We DO NOT slow up the mail in retailiation because we lost more than half of our work force. It is Syracuse. All mail from Canajoharie to New berlin, Vernon up to Boonville INCLUDING Utica all goes to Syracuse and they cannot handle the influx of the mail. Wash. DC decided that with the mail volume declining that only certain areas can process mail. They took that privelige away from us but our attitude did not change! Just the processing of our mail did. Stay informed - stay smart!

AGREEEE!!! Do something about that lady working at the counter. Someone take a stop watch and time her in comparison to other clerks. Sorry, send her to the back room she's too slow for counter service in Utica but would be great in Middleville or Poland or Frankfort or any small town USA. I swear people are going to riot as they wait in line. Just watch their expressions and comments under their breath. Postmaster! Time for a CHANGE!

Today, 9 Days later I received them. What the hell is going on. It's my personal opionion that the employees are deliberately screwing up the mail to get even for the lay offs. Maybe they should look to lay off a few more!! Better mail your Christmas delivery early, and I mean EARLY. It's disgusting!
Are you sure they mailed your papers on the 14th? I know a lot of places have an easy out and blame the post office when they really don't mail your letter when they say they do.

There were no lay offs, Postal Employees are Not allowed to strike, and the Postal Service is not allowed to Layoff Employees.

The Postal Service is not "losing money" they are spending somewhere between $7 and $15 billion per year for Health Insurance for it's Current Employees, Retired Employees and for Future Employees(no other gov.or private industry is required to do)
I'm sorry for calling that person stupid, but "bumper sticker" statements like "my taxes pay your salary" are.....Stupid, sorry.

Good luck trying to explain the difference between a Postmark and a Meter Date. Insurance Companies are the worst offenders, the "papers" get processed and then sit on someones desk with a meter strip on them, it has no bearing on when they actually get mailed. Especially if there is a Payout involved, add up all insurance payouts for a week for a specific Insurance Company and tabulate the interest earned on that Money if they hold it for a couple more days. And then when the Customer Complains, Blame the Post Office. "the check is in the mail"
So it goes

No, it on the us postage stamp. Dated 11/14/2012 mailed from zip code 12110. Received yesterday 11/23/2012. 9 days to go from Latham NY to Utica. The blame is on the postal system not the insurance company. The same clowns that didn't deliver my Grandsons Christmas gifts mailed on 12/20 until 12/27 after paying for 2 day delivery!

That is a Meter Date, that means nothing. That is the date the Piece was Metered NOT when it was Mailed.
As far as your Christmas Gifts? So you sent them Express Mail? And were told they were Guaranteed 2nd Day? If they were late you are due a full refund. If you sent them Priority Mail, there is no guarantee and if you waited until 12/20 to send them when 12/25 was Sunday, that's your fault not the Postal Service.

Well actually your full of it. Four boxes were mailed on 12/20, two day delivery. 3 arrived the fourth did not. Again it was their fault. Plus boxes were marked 1 of 4, 2 of 4, 3 or 4 and 4 of 4. Post office is disgusting. Boxes this year will go UPS. Blame that on the internet use.

You understand the Volume of Parcels increases dramatically the week before Christmas right? Marking them 1 of 4 etc. does less than nothing, I love the fact that your upset 1 didn't get there for a week, but you failed to mention until now that 3 of them got there in 2 Days. And that somehow makes the USPS "disgusting"? You obviously have some other Ax to grind. Whatever. If you do go through UPS, if you wait till the last minute again, you'll pay dearly. And don't forget if the Parcels are going somewhere UPS doesn't like.....they Give em to the Post Office for the last Mile......good luck.
