US Mail / Mail Carrier / Non delivery of home mail!
I would like to file a complaint on my mail carrier, he refuses to deliver my mail because my mail box sets back 4 inches from my neighbors (mail boxes are on posts near the curb on our road). Several years ago (approx 5) my mail box was knocked off the post by a snow plow, after several months of retrieving my mail from a P.O. box I purchased a plastic all in one mail box that slips over the post (the post stayed intact, just the box got knocked off). The mail carrier in my town periodically refuses to deliver my mail (recently I went 4 days with no delivery), he complains it sits to far back, but he delivers mail to a mail box that is about a foot away from mine that sits about 4 inches closer to the curb. I have cleared 7 feet of snow and ice all the way down to the curb and he still wouldn't deliver my mail. I confronted him and he used a very rude tone towards me and insisted that my mail box sets back to far and he told me he wouldn't deliver my mail. He filed a complaint on my mail box and I explained to the local Post office it is the same mail box and post that he has been delivering to for the past 5 years so they disregarded his complaint. His behavior is unacceptable and he should be reprimanded or replaced, he obviously doesn't want to do his job, which is to deliver US mail.
