Mail problems

Lately I have been noticing our lacking mail. There have been quite a few things that I've been waiting for in the mail that have yet to arrive and should have. It's even to the point where my magazines this month are "late." Have any of you ever had any problems with your mail? I hate to point fingers to our mail man, but I've heard before that sometimes you'll find a mail man/woman that is a thief and I'm just worried about my items that haven't arrived. I've mostly noticed this in the past 3-4 weeks. If It goes on for much longer, I will probably contact my local post office. I just feel weird calling them up because I don't know exactly what to say. Have any of you had this problem before? If so, what did you do?

Since they have made so many financial changes the service has to have slowed down some. We used to have three post offices in a twenty mile radius and with the cuts we now have one. My mail used to arrive at my home about 10 am - now I am lucky to get it by three. Be specific about what is missing and they will do their best to find it.

Thank you so much! This would make sense if that's the case in my area!

i'd go to your post office now and complain about it. just tell them you've been expecting things and they've not come, like your magazine. don't be afraid to tell them. cause it could be important documents that go missing one day. it is their job to make sure your mail gets to you. we have the problem that who ever sorts the mail sees my partner's initial and anothers not read the address and it gets put int he wrong pile, so we get another families mail that has the same name. it's really annoying, then the postie won't pick it up until it's been left in the mail box for a few days. now the post office won't re address my mums mail that gets sent to them instead of another town it will come out in mine instead, cause the address in the phone is not the right one.

Are you in the UK because there's been loads of postal strikes the last few weeks. There is going to be a huge national strike soon as well.

No - I probably should've specified. I'm in the U.S.

Hello jenn since we transferred here in our place for almost 6 years now, I never had known any complained from our neighbors regarding some problems with regards on our mailing services by our local post office...There might be but mostly because of the long holidays aside from that we're satisfied the way we got our mails by our local post office....thanks..
