So I recently moved. I was told I would be getting one apartment, but when I went to get my keys they discovered a problem with the apartment and ended up moving me into another apartment 2 doors down instead.
Problem was that I had already filled out the mail forwarding to the apartment that I would not be moving into.
Everything the USPS sent me said that if there were any errors in forwarding, all I needed to do was call an 800 number to make the correction. The 800 number then gave me the number for my old post office to call to make the correction.
So today was the first day that I could actually make the call during post office hours. The stupid lazy bitch there says she can't make such a change, and wants me to fill out two new change of address forms.... One for my old apartment to the correct apartment, and another for the incorrect apartment to the correct apartment..... Which takes another 10 business days to process.
Today, I caught my mail carrier at the new complex. Out of curiosity, I ask him what I should do in my given situation. He, as well, tells me that I can have my original change of address corrected to the real apartment number, and I just need to call the 800 #.
So I called the 800 # again, and they tell me again that I need to call my old post office, so I call the old post office again and get a different person who again tells me that my only option is to go ahead and fill out two more change of address forms per resident (a total of 4 forms) and wait the 10 days for the order to process.
So I found the mail carrier on property again, and told him what was going on.
THANKFULLY, he's not a lazy ass government employee, and agreed to just dump anything going to the wrong apartment number with our last names on it into the correct apartment number mailbox.
Just so this one girl could spare the 2 minutes of time to go in and change the apartment number, she's going to cost another employee somewhere else the time to go and process 4 different mail forwarding forms.
And we wonder why the cost of stamps keeps rising........
