We have a new postie in our neighbourhood. This postie must be new to the job because they don't really know what they're doing.

Darlene and I have witnessed this person rifling through the letter-mail in their hands trying to figure out what goes where. Unlike other posties who at least act like they have a clue, this one keep walking back and forth down the street, stopping at various houses and making multiple trips to our home to deliver the mail. This person must not know that it's best to sort the mail before heading out to deliver.

This same person also seems to be driving the parcel delivery truck. We've had at least 5 cases of parcels getting delivered to someone else over the last year. Some of those parcels eventually did end up at our house, but only through the kindness of the other home's occupants. Who are handicapped and can't go out. So it's not even them who deliver the parcel to us, but a friend or relative. Some parcels never arrive at all.

We've complained to Canada Post. Each time. It accomplishes nothing. The Canada Post CSR is either shocked and dismayed or couldn't give a shit. I don't have any trouble believing that they lose money. Because they suck so badly. We may have to rent a post office box at the mall postal outlet just to ensure we get our mail. At least the posties who deliver to the mall have a clue and the outlet workers are available to give feedback to if your mail is missing.

I can only imagine what it's going to be like when we all go to community post boxes in our neighbourhoods. The post box rental idea is looking better every day.
