US Post Office / returned mail

1 Avon, CT, United States Review updated:

I would like to make a complaint about this but don't know how. I live in a shared apartment with many people. Only one of our names is on the mailbox. The mailman only delivers to the person whos name is on the box. I find this to be really annoying. Is it that big of a deal to deliver to the others? Is the mailman just lazy, stupid, or both? Is the mailman allowed to do this under the guidelines of his job?

    It's not the mail carrier who sorts the mail and decides. A machine sorts it by the zip, then city and state, so on and so forth. Once it reaches a local post office People in the back sort it based off the information they have on who lives there. That's why you can get mail for someone who no longer lives there, if they don't notify the post office then they continue sending it there because it has no where to go. No think about that in reverse if they don't know you live there because they have no information stating that you live there, it won't get to you. They aren't stupid, it's not their job to figure out who lives where, it's YOUR JOB to notify them saying "hey, I live here too" Go to the post office and let them know. don't be lazy posting frustrating comments about things you can control and are pissed off that you ACTUALLY have to do something about it. They aren't Psychic
