Unfortunately the USPS will be raising rates as of May 11, 2009. I will be posting a cheat sheet for the rate increase on my website. For more detailed rate information you may download the Domestic Rate Guide from the USPS once the increase take place.

MadTV Postal humor

Posted by David on Mar 7, 2009 in Funny, Postal

The USPS was not happy about the skit that was run on MadTV. It must have struck a nerve.

I can’t imagine how MadTV ever came up with such an idea…

Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive

Posted by David on Apr 24, 2008 in Charity, In The News, Postal

The Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina in partnership with the USPS and the National Association of Letter Carriers will be having the Stamp Out Hunger Food drive. The food collection will take place May 10, 2008 and it’s easy to participate. All you have to do is leave canned food or non perishable food in your mailbox. You may also make a donation to the Food Bank. If you have too much food to fit in the mailbox, just put it in a bag either in front of the mailbox or hanging from it. Keep an eye out for a Stamp Out Hunger notice in your mail.

Postal Notice Form 3849

Posted by David on Apr 24, 2008 in Funny, Postal

Creekside Post Office uses Form 3849 to let customers know that an item is being held for the and may be picked up at the post office window unit. This is common and not a big deal. However out latest batch of forms had the incorrect phone number printed on them for customer service. The number printed on the forms were actually for a “sex chat” phone line instead of USPS customer service. Our customers were quite shocked about the recording that they heard and some of them complained all the way to Washington DC.
