Sorry, ladies, I'm fuming. Ever since I moved into my apartment, I've had the worst time getting my mail. I (a) get other people's mail (b) rarely get my own. I live in garden apartments, and all our mailboxes are individual little boxes grouped together at the entryway. There are about 20 or so boxes and the mailwoman CANNOT put the correct person's mail in his/her box. I think it's also been VERY bad because it's the wintertime and the mailwoman doesn't want to be standing out in the cold... she just slams mail any-which-way into whatever box strikes her fancy. Our boxes are labeled not only on the outside, but one the INSIDE as well! I've complained as much as good taste allows... and today I got a nice little apology card with a sticker to put on my mailbox to notify the mailwoman to "double-check"... and I couldn't help but note the irony that this card was left on the floor, in the sludge. I actually do worry about strange acts of vengence from the mailwoman because I've complained at least twice now -- and I know my neighbors complain like crazy as well. Our favorite conversation when we meet each other in the halls is about why we never get our mail. Why this hasn't been taken care of is beyond me. This will be the third time I've had to ask a previous employer to send a check for a project I did. It's embarassing. I'm thinking of just forgetting about the money altogether because even if she sends it again I probably won't receive it. Sorry, thanks for letting me vent. I'm just at my wit's end and I don't know what to do anymore since complaining obviously hasn't helped. The manager of the post office is very, very sweet but she can't control everything.
