I got the cops called on me

post #1 of 82
Thread Starter 
Some Postal Service lady called the police on me because I asked for her name to file a complaint. I'm going to file an official complaint with the USPS and escalate this as far as I can. Hopefully she'll get fired.

What did she do that caused you to want to file a complaint?

better yet, what did she say you did that the police even bothered to come?

Did you ask with a gun in your hand when she refused to tell her name or why did she call the police on you?

Just kidding ...

Is there a witness for her behaviour? Without a witness there's no way to get her fired.She'll just lie.

It's probably just that some disgruntled USPS employee has threatened her with something that has her on edge.....making her afraid that intoflatlines might try to hunt her down if he has her name.

That's only partly in jest....seriously, there are a lot of rather tense USPS folks out there.

"Some Postal Service lady called the police on me because I asked for her name to file a complaint."

For some reason I think this isn't a complete or accurate summation of the events that transpired.

My girlfriend was right there, but she's probably biased.

Here's a copy of what I sent to USPS via their website. I am going to call them tomorrow and I am going to send paper letters to other officials. Unfortunately I will have to use USPS.. I'm just really pissed off.

"To Whom It May Concern:

I have an urgent issue that needs to be addressed immediately. Today, two USPS employees acted in an incredibly unprofessional and unnecessary manner to me. At approximately 7:00 PM CT, I checked the mail room in my apartment building. Two women were in the room putting mail away. Since I was on my way out, I asked them politely if I could retrieve my mail from my mail box. They immediately began acting very aggressive and condescending towards me, and refused to let me get my mail. I then asked them politely if I could have their first names for reference on my official complaint and they refused. At this point, I turned the video recorder on my mobile phone on, so that I could easily reference the employees when I filed my complaint. I asked once again if I could have a name for reference and one employee that later said her name was "Kate" immediately grew very angry and started to shout that she was calling the police. She called the police, complaining of non-existent "threats", which can be corroborated from my video footage. She also at one point touched my mobile phone physically, which can also be seen on the video footage. The police came and the employee told them that I was making threats against her, to which the police officers asked "Threats? What were the threats?". "Kate" then quickly replied something along the lines of, "No threats, I meant that we have been threatened before while at work". It is very unprofessional that "Kate" lied to the police about me, and it is very poor behavior for a government employee to show such unprovoked animosity towards a taxpayer like myself.

For simplicity's sake, there are more details that I will provide once I am contacted about this issue.

I do not appreciate being harassed by Postal Service employees, nor do I appreciate having the Chicago Police Department called to my high rise residence, causing a large dramatic scene, ruining my night, wasting my time, and causing me embarrassment. I trust that this message will reach the right place, and I will forward copies of this complaint to other authorities in hopes that something of this nature never occurs again.

I request to be contacted as soon as possible about this issue. I can be reached at (...) ...-...."


I actually do have video of part of the incident. I doubt anyone in the USPS will do anything to help me out, but I'm just pretty furious right now.

I mean, my mail doesn't even get finished until like 7:30 PM?? And if I have to pick up a package from the receiving room, I need a package slip, which the USPS puts in my mailbox, but the package room closes at 7:00 PM? WTF..

It is entirely accurate but not complete, obviously.

Since you’re experienced with the Police? I go into the Post Office a lot to mail packages. They all know me. I write what I need on a piece of paper and hand them the note. I was thinking of handing them a note with “this is a stick up” written on it. Then when they ask I would say “oh sorry wrong note” and give them the one with the shipping information.

Think they would get a laugh out of it or do you think I’d get to meet your police friends?

If your USPS is staffed with wonderful employees like the ones that do my mail, you'll probably be talking to the police pretty quickly.

I am a seer, and this is what I see:

Your life is going to filled with paper wasting letter writing and unrequited whining, whining the likes of Fran Drescher balling the serenity pray with vise grips clamped to her nose.

Yeah, it's pretty stupid.

I live in a high rise and we have a mail room with like hundreds of mailboxes in the walls. The mail has been really really late recently. I was on my way out to get some food, so I figured that I would check my mail to see if there was a package slip in my mailbox so I could go pick up a package before the receiving room closes. I asked the mail woman if I could get my mail and she wouldn't let me because she said she wasn't done with the mail yet. That was fine with me, except she gave me a bunch of attitude about it. I told her politely that our past mailman had always closed and locked each set of mailboxes (floors 4-6, floors 7-9, etc) so that the people with finished mail could pick up their mail at a reasonable time while he was working on the other floors. She told me that I was lying and that those were the rules. I was not lying because that's how it was for years before. I asked her if it was a USPS rule or if my building made a new rule because I was genuinely curious. She then got even ruder and told me that I was harassing a federal employee which was BS. I asked for her name so I could file a complaint about my mail not being there on time (and extremely urgent overnight packages smashed into my mailboxes delivered way after their guaranteed deliver time, but that's another story) and she refused to give me her name. I took out my cell phone so I could have some actual evidence for my complaint. I asked her if she was refusing to give me her first name so I could file a complaint and then she flipped out and went to call the police. The whole time I was very polite and calm and presented no threat to her. I was not physically close to her nor was I abusive in any way. Anyway, she called the cops saying that a "disgruntled customer" was "making her feel threatened". She said it was an emergency. I have it on video and it was anything but an emergency.

I think you're on to something here, actually. I'm just sick of the USPS ****ing me over with my service. I know that I'm not super important or anything, but it would make me feel better to at least write a few letters and make a few calls and do some whining and complaining rather than sit and take it. I don't care if they take my letters and don't even open them. I just need to know that I tried.
