Thumbs down "Dead Letter" Herndon Post Office - September 16, 2009, 11:52 AM

FYI

if someone is sending you something and chooses not to put a return address, encourage them to put something inside the envelope or package to show where it's supposed to go.

So I called the herndon post office looking for a card that was supposed to be delivered to me. My dumbass gave the sender the wrong apt #. So I went to the apartment that would have gotten the letter and they said any mail we get, we put back on the mailbox space and return to sender.

Here is my conversation with the Herndon Post Office

"Hello sir, I had a letter sent to me but the apt number on it was wrong and the individuals who got the letter sent it back to the post office. How can I retrieve it?"

"how long ago?"

"meh, about a week or so"

"well we would have sent it back to the sender"

"what if it had no return address on it?"

"then it went to Dead Letter. In Dead Letter, we open the package or mail and try to find the correct address by the contents"

"oh darn...it had money in it"

"well then yes, we kept the money. Anything else I can help you with?"

"uh no?" wtf kinda shit is that?

That problem is easily avoided by using a return address like your supposed to.

haha, it's one of the perks of being a postal worker.

I sent a gift card once, it never showed up at his place. (Had return address) I think they just try to keep whatever money they can get....

They actually do their best to figure out who the goods belong to once they open it up. Anything they can't figure out gets auctioned off. Of course in case of cash, they just keep it.

Seems legitimate.

No return address = opening package/letter to look for contact info
No contact info inside package/letter = free stuff

They aren't going to throw away something of value just because the sender forgot to mail it correctly.

Ya know what's beat, too?! That your freakin' neighbor couldn't find it in his/her heart to walk your mail to your door (if he knew your name), or take it to the Management Office if you live in an Apt Bldg... Sure, it's not their responsibility, but what ever happened to doing the decent thing?

That sucks. Especially since you did show up to claim it. And I suppose you were able to give the exact amount and stuff. They should have a record of stuff like that (especially money) they keep, so when somebody does claim it, they can give it back. That's not right. Sorry.

EXACTLY!! Sometimes I think my PW is dyslexic or overworked, but he/she seems to mix up addresses from time to time in my neighborhood. So I just walk up/down the block, knock on the door and say, "sorry to bother you but, I think this is yours....?"

How frikkin hard is that...?
