    Just wanted to post a note about how much we like Steve, our regular mail carrier.

    He's always cheerful - he's willing to do "more than the minimum"

    In fact, most of the people connected with our local Post Office are friendly and helpful! :thumbup:

    Good for Steve! Good for you that you have such a nice group to work with.

    I like our carrier too. He brings me things so I don't have to walk to the box.

    I'm so glad to see something good about the postal service. They've received so much criticism lately.

    sadly I now have a NEW(to this neighborhood) Postal carrier...hate is a strong word, so let us say, I thoroughly despise his LAZY self....I miss my lady carrier so much...but she was attacked by a pit bull on her walking portion of the route and quit that day...sigh...my doggies miss her too..she had a cookie for them everyday...of course that is why they run to the door whenever the bell rings..

    My mail-person will say hello if we're out doing yardwork on the weekends when she goes by. She was chatting with my husband the other day. Asked him if I gave quilt lessons. I said, Why did she ask that? He says, well, if you're getting two quilting magazines a month, and obviously there is a lot of (squishy) fabric packages coming in and going out to QB members, and from places with nice sounding names like Mountain View quilt shop, she thought I just had to be a quilter and she would like to take lessons!

    So far in my area all carriers and inside clerks are extra nice .... Of course,
    I always defend the P.O. as late husband was a Letter Carrier for over 12
    years in cold, snowy Wis.

    I adored my childhood mail carrier. He was wonderful! His name was Howard. He was always very kind and would chat for a few minutes. During the summer I would share lemonade and cookies with him. The guy we have now? Um, no.

    Thats good... Maybe you should ask him the questions you have on shipping that you posted in another thread.

    I don't see the mail carrier who delivers to my mailbox because it is located in a "collective" area about a block away. The clerks in my post office are awesome. I can't think of a time when they haven't been really great to help.
