  • Since I didn't particularly trust the company I was sending it back to, I decided to spend the extra money on certified mail

      For the most part, I’ve never really had an opinion about our local post office. That was until very recently, when I realized just how untrained the people there are.

      I had an item I needed to return because it was damaged when it arrived to my house. Since I didn’t particularly trust the company I was sending it back to, I decided to spend the extra money on certified mail.

      When I got to


      the post office, I was told two things. First, I was told I couldn’t check the shipping online, I would have to come to the post office to confirm delivery. Secondly, even though I didn’t order a return receipt, I was told I could find out who signed for the package if needed.

      Well, as expected, the company I sent the item to claimed it didn’t get it. And, after a few days, I ...


      • decided to spend my lunch break to go to the Post Office to find out whether that was true.

        That morning, while getting the receipt, I happened to notice a number down the side of it and thought it looked a heck of a lot like a tracking number. Sure enough, when I went on the USPS web site, I was able to track my package and found it had been delivered.

        I figured

        I would need a little more to convince the company though so I still went to the post office at lunch. After 20 wasted minutes, I discovered I was lied to and, without paying extra for the return receipt, I can’t find out who signed for it (fortunately, I didn’t need that).

        I’m still indifferent towards the Post Office but I will find it hard to trust anything any of their employees tell me from now on.
