Bobby, I found out why the package was not delivered. The mail lady said she was not going to drive all morning with the smell of fresh tomatoes in her car. I think she is just lazy but whatever I got them and had to make a few more burgers tonight to go with them. Thanks for the care package and your efforts this past winter has shown. I have had store bought for so long it was a real treat.

Thanks
Chris

You're welcome, just figured with all you were dealing with that you could use a little diversion.

And your mail lady? She oughta be fired. She gets paid to deliver packages, period. They didn't have a problem accepting my money for the postage. But, they got there and thats what matters most.

While I was there I did make a complaint to the post master. If she has a package and does deliver it she'll stay in her car and honk till I go outside. Then she says there's a box on the back seat for you. Now I could understand that if I had some dogs and she was afraid to get out. The mail is not what it use to be thats for sure. Thanks again it did make for a good diversion.

yeah Chris, like in every other aspect of life common sense is a un common virtue. there's rumors the nearest post office to me is goin on the choppin block and i caint say i'm sorry for em, the service is awful and the hours are worse. it's gonna be a night mare for me cause i'll probably have my address changed to another town i dont live in but the sad part is they will probably place the post mistress in the other post office so she can pull it down as well. thats why when i order online i specify ups or fed ex.

The guy who regularly delivers our mail is pretty good, if he has a package and we are not home, he will drive up to the house and put the package on the porch with a yellow slip in the mail box saying there is a package on the porch.

There is a woman who sometimes delivers who sounds like the woman you described, when she has a package, she will blow the horn and sit in the car until you come out to get it and if you do not come out, you will find a yellow slip in the box saying the package is at the post office for pickup.

I had the best letter carrier in the country, then I moved onto my property! I live in a private community, and have NO MAIL at all!

I have to use the post office, and if you HAVE to do that, it's a nightmare! No postage to PO Boxes when ordering online, No postage to PO Boxes in almost every situation. Even my bank has to have both addresses, and try to get them to send it to the PO Box address! what a joke. My home address is not even listed other than a lot space. If I use it, the post office has no idea where it is.

Good thing my post office knows the problems we all have, they save everything, and hold it for me, if I get a package there by mistake.

I have to beg to get things sent to my PO Box, or I have go with UPS or Fed Ex. which cost a lot more in some cases.

By the way, postmen are actually Letter Carriers. That's their official names. I used to pay their medical claims when I worked in D.C., a million years ago.

I got the best mail lady in the USA!  If I'm not home, usually vistiting by brother or neighbors, and there is a package that needs signing, she will track me down cause she knows my jeep!  About three years ago on Christmas Eve she drove up with a package after her hours and said this came to the post office after I started my delivery and I thought it might be a Chrismas gift.  It was.  Well lets say we pamper her too by leaving all kinds of produce hanging from the mailbox!  I think goodness works both ways.  Roy

I've got a great mail carrier and his substitute.  I surprised them by writing a letter to the Postmaster bragging on their excellent service.  They both really appreciated it.
