Also, keep an eye out for your future mail. It's not good to make them upset- they control your mail
What's really funny is- People here are skeptical about cables, burn-in, power cords, etc etc etc.
Yet they are more than willing to accept this story on face value?
I question it.
So What- I'm just not as gullible as the rest of you.
"If you behave and treat them with respect they will reciprocate."
"Always? Really! Sure that's not a bit naive?"
No- What I've found is people will react to you and what is presented is returned.
It's obvious the OP is worked up for what is really nothing- Is there other stuff going on in your life and maybe you took it out on a USPS Employee?
With this I bid you all a Fond Farewell.
You don't get it at all. You behaviour, as detailed ad naseum, was atrocious. If you're worried about getting tickets on time, think ahead next time. Don't leave things to the last second and expect the mail carrier to bail you out OR pay the extra cost for FedX.
I live in a similar building and we've been through more than one mail person in the four years I've been here. It's not easy servicing those large buildings. New people struggle with routes that are easy for the experienced hands.
I've seen as many a four supervisors trying to help a newbie through their routes at 8 in the evening, but you know what, most of these people figure out what to do and become pretty good carriers. I've seen them go from barely able to get the mail off the truck to running hours ahead of schedule every day.
Give them a break and more respect. No one should be expected to work with people looking over their shoulders and making suggestions on how to do their jobs.
I guess you didn't read my posts, or you're getting me confused with the USPS bitch. "Flipping out" would probably include shouting and calling 911 and claiming an emergency. "Flipping out" is not speaking politely and calmly.
I sorely wanted to mail myself a slab of lead in a flat-rate mailer, just to make the carrier really *feel those steps all the way to my porch, but ultimately i decided that since i would have to mail it in person at the post office, this would be awkward.
digitalmind, I understand that being taped could piss someone off, but I just did it to have some sort of proof of the events. The fact is that if its my word against some nameless USPS workers, I would definitely not get any credibility. I don't care if it pisses them off. It pisses me off to get such unprovoked animosity when I am very polite.
It may not be about standing up for yourself, but it certainly isn't about "showing some people who are trying to do their job and who may just be having a rough day some respect.", as some people on here would like to think. That's a little idealistic. Sure, their job sucks and they may be having a ****ty day but that gives them no right to act all bitchy towards me. If they can be condescending bitches with delusions of grandeur when I am polite and resonable, then I can tape them being bitches and complain about it.
