Our block (900 Monroe Ave., River Forest) has been the victim of poor postal service for several years. We frequently miss mail on Mondays as that is the carrier's day off and no sub is provided. I was told by a supervisor that the carrier is on limited duty and when she is tired, she just stops delivering for that day. In the recent cold spell, we received mail three times over an eight-day delivery period.
I have talked to Theresa Thurman, the local postmaster, three times but there is no improvement. No wonder we are all relying more on email, direct deposit and direct payment of bills.
The USPS is useful only for junk mail.
