    I HOPE I have this in the correct forum. Sorry if I goofed. [​IMG]

    I wish everyone had my postal service people. There are so many bad reports on usps that I wanted to give you hope. I tears me up that other PO's aren't being careful. I've had live chicks and hatching eggs delivered recently. Never a cracked egg, never a damaged box and all chicks were alive and chirping. The hatchery had my phone number wrong on the box--the post office went as far as looking up my number in the phone book to call me.

    I'm so pleased with them! [​IMG] There is hope of good service out there. I don't know why ours is good other than its a VERY small town P O. Not bragging or wanting controversy---just pleased.

    I have a good PO as well. My lady is retiring this year and one of the two subs will be taking over the route. Here's hoping all goes well with the switch.

    I have a good one here too. Also very small town. I know once they make it here they'll be handled carefully.

    Our mail delivery person is awesome. She is very careful with everyone's packages, always parks outside the property and walks to the door with packages, and has a smile and wave for everyone.

    My postal service is absolutely incredible. They are the best, they call me when I get eggs in and ask me if I want to pick them up or if I want them delivered. And they take very careful care of any packages I send. I love them!

    tazcat70 I must be crazy!

    AWWWW [​IMG] I want a small town mail post office!

    My current mail lady is afraid of dogs, the previous one spoiled mine to getting doggy treats everyday, and so one day he was so excited to see the lady in blue, he went running out to greet her. She ran screaming into the street. [​IMG] My little yorkie excitedly following.

    They threatened to suspend my mail service. [​IMG] She still won't deliver our mail if our big front door is open, even with the screen door closed. [​IMG]

    I have great mail service. We're also in a smallish town. The main post office is about 15 miles from here in a town of approx. 800 people.

    There may be 5-10 people that live on my road. Most of these cabins are vacation homes.
