We have gotten a new mail man since then, but the new one does the same and tries to remind her alternates to pick up my packages as well. It saves quite a bit of effort on my part and I am appreciative that they stop since they are going by my house every day.

I totally understand that they are bleeding money and that this kind of price increase is necessary, but it's still a little shocking that FCI went up over 60%. I'm not sure many of us were prepared for that.
I used to have this and they would help me with carrying packages from my car and were just so wonderful. So since I had that it makes what I have now that much more unacceptable.

Thanks I am filing this info away. I didn't know there wa anything other than the main number. I have asked for supervisors in the past and it was always someone with the main number. I would have loved someone even regional.

Yeah, they gave me a regional Consumer Affairs office, like an hour or so away from my house. I didn't know it existed either but I kept the number for next time

Well, I was thinking they wouldn't lose their jobs.

I do this all the time. If I find somebody somewhere who was helpful I save their number. It doesn't matter what business it is because you never know.
