Mail probs

In addition to my last post, ever since I moved here we've been getting the wrong mail. We're supposed to return it to the office, but I usually get home too late. The office closes at 6pm, and I like to end work at 5:30. But then I think the manager leaves whenever she wants to, because even if I do to get there ten minutes before closing, the office will be closed already, or sometimes it's been closed all day. It's not open on weekends.

I don't typically pick up the mail, either, because someone has already done it by the time I get home. I think it's my LOUD ROOMMATE who does it because she gets home before I do, and we're the only two here in the evening. It could be some of the other girls do it because a lot of them work nights, and they're not here when I get back.

This problem could be easily solved if people just checked the mail to make sure it's ours. That way they could take it back to the office long before it closes.

Granted, the office might be closed for the reasons I stated above, but most of the time it shouldn't be.

It takes a while for someone to finally have the time to take the mail back. It can sit on our table for a week. And it isn't just other peoples' junk mail. Sometimes it appears to be bank statements or bills.

Yesterday someone brought back a piece of mail from the VA and a hospital. It was for a guy I met at the pool about a month ago who said he was a combat vet and needed multiple surgeries.* There was no reason for the postal worker to get this mixed up. The office had been closed all day, so no one could return it. I left a note on the table begging someone to take it back ASAP because I didn't want it sitting there for a week, and I would be gone all day at work. When I got home, it was gone.



*I should've just taken it to him since his address was on it, assuming he was home. He lives in a building close to mine.
