    Mail delivery problems go from bad to worse

    March 21, 2007
    BY PATRICK FERRELL Herald-News

    The pink plastic card that arrived in her neighbor's mailbox Saturday underscores Jeanne Sidler's complaint with her mail service.

    The card, a note to the carrier from a supervisor, reads, "Misdelivery problem here. Verify mail before deliveryi (sic) Customer is very upseti (sic) Do not deliver this card."



    Jeanne Sidler gets other people's mail and misses some of her own. She shows a complaint card about her that was delivered to her neighbor.

    "Not only did they deliver it, but they delivered it to the wrong house," Sidler said.

    For 2½ weeks, the New Lenox woman has received mail from streets blocks away, she said.

    "My concern is identity theft. I've got bank and credit card statements coming. If I'm getting somebody else's mail, who is getting mine?" she said. "It would be a joke if it weren't for fraud."

    A spokeswoman for the postal service apologized Tuesday and said the problem is the result of a temporary employee working a route left open after a 40-year veteran retired recently.

    "Misdelivery concerns us greatly," said Sue Litterly, customer service coordinator. "We apologize for any inconvenience."

    Litterly said the carrier was hired for up to three months until a permanent employee can be hired. Sidler said her anger with the mail delivery has been brewing for weeks.

    After getting other people's mail for a few weeks, Sidler said she left a note in her mailbox for the carrier a week ago.

    Two days later, she was still getting the wrong mail, prompting her to go in and speak with a supervisor, who typed up the pink card -- used by the postal service to alert carriers to possible problems -- and leave it for the carrier.

    But the carrier just delivered the card to the home that gets delivered before Sidler.

    Here is the thing though, they had a huge article here about how the post office in Chicago is the worse. Thats fine, I love my mail lady she never screws nothing up. Maybe one 1 or 2 occasions I get a letter from the same number address but 1 block off. It happens. Here though they hire a bunch of garbage that could careless about their jobs, and can be seen strolling the streets in their mail uniforms at 12,1,2 o'clock in the morning. In the hood. You can go to the local post office and wait in line because the ladies working the desk are talking about so and so's babys daddy or their hair, or their nails it is frustrating as hell.

    When i was in FTO we were patroling and a mail lady almost hit us head on, we werent going to do anything but then as she passed us she was stupid enough to flilp us the bird in a fully marked patrol car.

    She received tickets and after we complained to the post master she was fired.

    LMAO,
    We have the same mail carriers for the last 20 years,
    every year the mail gets here later in the day, but i am thankful its my mail, and not someone elses.
    YEAH, IM THE BERRIES, AND CHERRIES IN YOUR REAR VIEW MIRROR.

    Handle every stressful situation like a dog.
    Eat it, Play with it, or piss on it, and walk away!

    As smart as man is, we haven't been able to invent a machine that can smell drugs or tell us where a person has walked, Dogs are sophisticated investigative tools!

    When I lived on North 29th, I would get mail addressed to South 29th... same street only in the other direction. Go figure.

    Well, they call it 'going postal' for a reason.
