Mail service gone to shit???

Anyone else noticed in the last couple months that Canada Post has started to fucking suck?

Not only did they lose a package from Amazon for a couple weeks, but now my mail service is fucked. I always used to get the same cheques like clockwork on the 11th-12th of the month mailed from Florida and New Jersey on or around the 7th.

Now it's the 20th of the month and this shit isn't arriving. Same as last month.

Also the last postie retired a few months ago and so now we have these long haired hippie posties that keep putting the wrong mail in my mailbox. Nearly every time I check the mail I have someone else's fucking mail in my box.

Canada Post what the fuck?

i dunno, ive been getting lots of someone elses mail (45 letters in the last month) and packages that are sent out are arriving after some other packages, even though they are shipped from the same location... i think the posites just dont care anymore, they know they are out of a job and just dont give a f*ck anymore

Sign o' the times, my friend. In every walk of life, finding good workers is nearly an impossibility. Having said that, it doesn't help sometimes when employers don't go the extra mile to promote a positive workplace. My youngest son works at a large chain restaurant. The employer whines about lack of dedicated workers, yet they treat their employees like dirt. Schedules that don't make sense. Doing whatever it takes to limit hours to save money, etc. What do you expect? You find good workers, keep them by showing a little respect, FFS. My son is reliable and dedicated to his job. He works very hard and is always on time. He's moving on in a couple of months, because he feels used and taken advantage of. I wish he would quit because he's becoming jaded. I'm sure there are a lot of better places to work at.

/rant

As for Canada Post, the corporation is way too big. I have complaints about my mail delivery, but it can be a lot worse. Hippies delivering mail........ cool. Rastafarians would be much better, mun.

To add to what I said earlier, it's not always the employer. It's usually the management team. I worked at a processing plant for close to 27 years. The owneres were great people, but as the business grew, the day to day operations were left up to the management team. The plant I worked at was the worst run plant in the company (if not the planet). As a supervisor, I had to pick up the slack - mend relations between management and the workers. It was a non-union plant, so the shit they got away with was pretty scary. I finally got fed up with having to fix their problem that I just decided to leave. They ddn't pay me enough. At one point, they offered me a management position - no thanks. I can't be part of that kind of stupidity. The company lost a lot of good workers over the years. It was all about production, at the expense of quality. By this time, the owners had lost touch with its workers - my mom worked there for decades prior to me working there and the owners always talked to the employees. It was the best place to work, evar. Last I heard, the company got bought out.

Do you have many different posties now? Every time the postman shows up it's someone different. When we had the same old man for 3 years here the service was impeccable. The mail was always, always here between 12:30-1:00!


One of my neighbors said the mail showed up at 10 PM the other night.


I had to have a few payments cancelled and re-sent out over the last couple months. It is looking more likely that Canada Post is losing my freakin' mail!

2) our posty doesn't EVERY deliver on a monday or friday - she can often be seen during work hours at the local shops in full posty-gear

Not CP's fault. Rob Ford blew your shirt money on blow, now you won't be getting anything.

I've been home waiting for a package all morning. Never heard the doorbell, go look online and see it says "attempted delivery at 10:16, left slip"...

I've literally been sitting 5 steps from the door all morning. Never heard the doorbell or a knock even once.

Now I have to drive 15 minutes to pick it up... FML.

Neighbor's mail, which has the correct address labelled, keeps ending up in my mailbox ever since they've announced the end of residential mail delivery service.

I think the OP should call Canada Post. I find they are very responsive to complaints and suggestions.

I have a very consistent postie and she is actually very nice and goes the extra mile. Her only complaint when chatting with her is the new community mailboxes requires her to redo her sorting system.

I suggest get to know your postie.. they are human beings too.

They aren't very flexible in terms of the location to pick up parcel.

I am a few minutes walk from Magee, and yet we are assigned to the 7eleven at Granville & 70th to pick up our parcel. Our old house which was at Oak and 45th was assigned to the Shoppers in Kerrisdale. We called and inquired about whether or not we can change our 'home' Canada Post location, but was ultimately denied.

I hope our community mailbox will be closer to home
