Unbelievable! these morons deserve to go broke. Who's in-charge here?
Someone with some sense needs to step-in and let these idiots know it's not good business to send everyone's mail out-of-town and then send it back.
We might as well give it to the pigeons, they are less of a nuisance than whoever is running the USPS.

Yeah what is up with shutting down shop in F-town? Who came to the conclusion that the services were not needed in the community? Don't these people know how much the residents depend on having a Post Office for all kinds of transactions and deliveries???? It blows my mind how inconsiderate and stupid this decision is...anyone know what's gonna happen now? Where and how will the mail be delivered? Please tell.....

OK = they are not closing our post office here in Farmington. They are just not going to process the mail here anymore. Which is funny because my brother is a postal carrier and they have been processing our mail in Albuquerque now for the past 5 years!!!!!!!!! So its an old story that does not really effect any of us = because they have already stopped processing mail here in Farmington !!!! They stopped 5 years ago. Its just that most of us didn't know this.

Got to love the US Postal service. Cut back, do less, lay-off, and charge more. Can't wait for the next increase in postage and plea for a bigger bite for budget. And they wonder why people do more and more transactions electronicly.

I don't understand how the Postal Service can be having money problems when I still get 5 lbs of junk mail in my box every week. If business is so bad raise the price of bulk mailing
