UPS delivered a package to our house today and about 10 minutes after he left we were bakcing out of the drive way and noticed that he wrote on the side of our mailbox in HUGE letters the numbers to our house "132". I have tried washing it off with soap and water and an All Purpose cleaner, but its not coming off. So..I called and complained. Hubby saw them(about 2 weeks ago) write in permant marker the 132 on the side of the post. We really didnt like that, but said okay fine. I work in a mail room so I know that they need to see the numbers to make sure its the correct house, so I didnt really mind when they did that. But when I have 6 inch high white letters on the side of my black mailbox, I have a problem with that. I mean we already have the huge black numbers on the front of our house so people can see and then they wrote it on the post in black marker. Why the need to do it all across the side of my mailbox? When someone from the local UPS store called earlier he sounded as if it wasnt that big of a deal, but since I had filed the complaint that the "Main Boss" will have to be notified and call me to work something out. To see if it needs to be replaced or what. I never thought about that part of it, I just did not like the fact that they wrote all over my mailbox. Should they replace it? Its a fairly new one, only been up a year and cost us $60. Its one of the larger ones, cause I get a lot of small book packages and I wanted to make sure they woulf fit. Am I overreacting? When hubby and I saw it we both were pretty ticked off. And hes normally not one to get upset over things. Hes one of those "Oh its okay, dont worry about it. Dont let it bother you." types. What do you think?
