Do you work at post office.. cause you have no idea what your talking about

Mail is constantly left routes not going out this regime is trying to destroy the post office

I hope you were being humorous Sofronia.

This is not simply a change in policy. It is a violation of the law! No one is bothering to mention that (See Below)!
