I think I am perfect example of why the USPS is going belly up. Today I went to get the mail and found a note that my mail carrier couldn't deliver a package to my home due to "icy walkway" and I have to come pick it up at the post office at their customer unfriendly 9-5 hours. This struck me as odd since our driveway is clear all the way to the garage entrance where I sometimes get UPS packages and have received USPS packages (I had a wonderful carrier for 8 years who was laid off last year due to competence). What was also interesting is I was home all day with a sick child and no one honked the horn or rang a doorbell. And the other supposedly "icy walkway" - it didn't bother the florist who delivered flowers to my front door. THis is deja vu of last December when the carrier kept leaving notes about being too afraid to leave packages that will be stolen and requiring me to pick up at the post office. Day after day - the notes - even when I had a babysitter waiting inside perfectly willing and able accept my Christmas deliveries. Seriously I have to wonder if they take stolen packages out of my carrier's paycheck to make her so anxious to deliver anything to my home in December. At this point I would just be happy if the carrier would just whip the packages out the window into my yard so I can just get my Christmas presents in time.
