UPS to apply surcharges to residential packages after costs surge
http://www.reuters.com/article/2015/0 ... lts-idUSKBN0L71AA20150203


I wonder if they'll try to impose the higher charges on high-density residential addresses like high-rises. It's nothing like delivering to a house in the suburbs. Delivering to a 400-unit building, which usually has a doorman to sign for packages, is just like delivering to a business. During the holidays, it's not unusual for UPS and FedEX to send one truck stuffed with packages only for my building. One stop and the driver is done.

This sounds petty, but it was just amazing, went there to get a stamp and mail a letter last Saturday. There's a line 40 long, no stamp machines, and the one fancy self service machine is down. WTF, is it really that hard to have a mechanical stamp machine that have existed for at least half a century?

At least UPS is treating the whole country the same way, whereas it's just Jersey City and a few other random places that suffer as badly as we do with the post office.

In any case, the post office, UPS, and FedEx can be the way they are because at the end of the day, it's a shared monopoly. Why can't the Justice Department Antitrust Division do something about this, instead of wasting all their energy on Microsoft, as well as MasterCard and Visa?

kinda funny, seeing how one of their biggest expenses - fuel - is at ten-year lows. BUT COSTS ARE UP EVERYWHERE! Watch those cunts announce 'record profits' in the next fiscal year.

I thought that too but it's been several days.


This happened to me twice this past month. The first package showed up about a week after it said it had been delivered. The second one showed up the following day. So don't lose hope.

And call the Post Office FWIW. Try this number, 201-915-7139, they actually answer it sometimes.


Thanks. Package arrived today but only after the Sender contacted USPS and insisted the package didn't arrive. It showed up after being sent to the wrong address.

I see those trucks blocking the pedestrian crosswalks and it annoys me to no end too. Those policemen were wrong by the way - while a taxpayer bailout may be imminent given its precarious financial state, the post office is mostly funded by its own revenues and receives only a small amount of funding from Congress for operating costs. Taxpayers would not be on the hook for the parking tickets, but the cost would be passed onto people who use the post office (which I guess is just about everybody plus some foreign tourists who send postcards back home). Nevertheless, issuing parking tickets to the post office wouldn't be something that gets directly paid for out of taxpayer funds.

Since we're talking about a federal agency here, it would probably make the most sense to send it to your Congressional representative. There are two Congressional representatives that cover Jersey City, which consists of Albio Sires for the 8th district and Donald Payne Junior for the 10th district. Go to www.house.gov, enter your zip code plus the four-digit extension to figure out which representative's district you are in, and then go to their website to find their contact information. I've contacted my representative (Sires) on a couple of things and found him to be fairly responsive.

Anyone else receive a stack of mail yesterday (Sunday)? Mine included the July 28th New Yorker, which should have come on July 22. On a positive note, I have met new neighbors when I delivered their mail that was left in my mailbox.

I had an insurance policy cancelled because the post office kept returning my mail to them. I only found out when I called the insurance company to inquire as to when my next payment was due, and why I had not gotten any correspondence from them, and I was informed that all of their letters addressed to me had been returned. I have nothing but contempt for the local USPS operations.

I once received a piece of mail that came from literally 1/2 a mile away - just one Jersey City address to another. The postmark was from five days earlier. Just sad. The mailer should have just walked it over to my place.

If there are problems with tampering, the only person that has 'private' access without supervision, is the mailman doing your route.

received a baby shower invite yesterday... a week later than everyone else and the envelope already open.

forever infuriated at the amount of mail i've had stolen/missing in this town. i tell people not to send me things at my address whenever possible, but when someone does, damn, does every card have to show up already open or not at all?

Hey, you got the letter! Based on prior history, that's a resounding success!! Of course, I am being sarcastic. For whatever reasons, the USPS offices, operations and staff in JC are really poor. I have lived in at least 10 different places in the US, and never have I seen such inept staff (rude workers, with bad attitudes, and severe lack of knowledge) and never have I had so much mail go missing, lost, or improperly delivered.

If I get a slip, I immediately go to USPS.COM and schedule for
a redelivery. The regular guy with the truck is great. The only
time I've had problems is if he is off. He rings the bell, and then
waits because he knows we come from the 3rd floor and I'm a
slow walker. I actually try to schedule my deliveries so they DON'T
come on Saturday. I too hate the post office (use the one on Bergen)

The online complaint form goes nowhere. So does calling and complaining to the actual office.

But I believe if more people called their US congressional representative (NOT the mayor, NOT the city council, NOT the state Assemblyperson or Senator) about this issue, there might be some headway. Certainly the potential to be better than what is going on now. There was a situation with a similarly horrific post office in Brooklyn and the congressional representative pushed very hard for the place to improve. From my understanding, the place still isn't perfect, but the efforts of numerous residents that contacted the congressman paid off pretty well.

This post office is in representative Albio Sires' district. His website is sires.house.gov. Contact information is on the website. If enough people make a stink about this, maybe he'll do something.

The mail carrier put a note in my mailbox that they attempted to deliver a certified letter. Someone was home all day. They didn't bother ringing the bell....




I hate having notices of certified mail and not knowing what it's about. Nothing ever good comes by certified letter.

They don't give a F**k about anything except getting those packages off their truck. They once shoved a giant box, that wasn't for me, under my basement gate that blocked me from opening the door. A package thief would have a holiday in my neighborhood. Packages are just left out in the open all the time.

You don't see the irony in suggesting the neighbors take a package when my complaint is the USPS deliverer won't even bother to ring the bell to alert the "working at home me" before running off?

My door entry system allows me to program an entry code for UPS to enter and leave packages, but the USPS has higher turnover, and....since they don't ring I never even get to meet them to give them the code.
