Dear Canada Post.
Just to let you know that someone in the Prince Albert sorting department is Screwing Up.
We didn't mind paying the $40 to have our mail forwarded for 6 months.
We appreciate getting all the bills, letters, fliers, Capital One offers and circulars.
We DON'T however, appreciate getting OTHER PEOPLE'S bills, magazines and Capital One mailings.
The first time it happened I decided it was easier to phone the telephone company to alert them to the fact that we had received Mr. X's phone bill. They graciously covered for you and re-issued his bill.
I opened his Capital One envelope to make sure it wasn't a bill, and then just threw that away.
Today there was another one.
Some poor woman's magazine. "This is your final issue" it says on the back. What am I supposed to do with THAT?!
Now, I can understand a zealous employee's enthusiastic response to sticking on the pretty yellow name labels and shooting the newly addressed envelopes etc. into the mailing chute...
But how careless can one get?
The first 2 wrongly redirected pieces of post should, indeed, have been delivered to 4th St. E, but a couple of blocks over from our old house.
And the man's first name was not "Randall", "Lauralea", "Hillary", "Thomas", or "Micah".
Neither was his last name "Friesen".
Today's post was not even from someone who lives on 4th St. E. It was from a lady, no relation, with a name not remotely like any of ours, who resides at a house on Bowerman Cres. In the same area, yes, but I don't think "4th St. E." and "Bowerman Cres." are at all similar. Do you?!
I'm hoping that it is not necessary to find a number for, and contact the Postmaster General.
Let's just find out who needs an eye exam in the sorting room, shall we?
And, maybe, don't let it happen again.
