Informed Delivery.

Rate this Entry
We have a relatively difficult time in our area receiving our mail. For whatever reason, the carrier doesn't know how to read the address on the box or post, she's trying to reduce her time delivering, doesn't feel like stopping today, maybe she has to pee by the time she reaches our house, but in any case, we hardly ever get ALL of our mail on time (or at all).
Informed Delivery- what to do when your local post office carrier SUCKS!

I know this for a fact, because I signed up for a rather interesting free service called Informed Delivery. Did you know that literally every single piece of mail that passes through the post office is photographed? Now, you can have photographs of all of your mail sent to you in a daily digest to inform you of what is in your mailbox before you go out to the mailbox to get it.

This is rather handy information to know, for example, today I DIDN'T receive 5 pieces of mail, 3 of them bank statements, 1 was a credit card and another a piece of junk mail.

So I spent literally 4 hours on the phone today calling to voice my concern about why the carrier failed to deliver, why she literally drove PAST my mailbox, never even slowing down as I watched.

They assured me they'd look into it. We'll see, we recently had our mail on hold for 7 days and when we returned we received ONE single envelope. That was our "mail" for an entire week- 1 single envelope. So apparently, none of the local restaurants offered any flyers/discounts, no real estate or car sales promotions over the 4th of July, etc.

So far, since signing up for the free service, we've discovered 27 pieces of mail that have FAILED to be delivered (at all!) to our business and home.

I'm wondering whether our mail is being thrown out like this one:

Or like this one who was caught via videotape dumping bins of mail into the woods:

It'll be interesting to see what becomes of it all. Your thoughts?
