United States Postal Service Compliment - Prompt Delivery of Priority Packages
PORTLAND, OREGON -- I just wanted to write up a compliment to the US Postal Service, Airport Branch, in Portland, Oregon.
On Saturday, early evening, March 15, 2008, I sent two packages, priority mail, to the east coast from Portland, OR. One was going to Boston, MA and one to Brooklyn, NY. They both arrived at their destinations on Monday, March 17, 2008, barely two days later (and from one coast of the US to the other).
Not only did my packages arrive very quickly, but the employees at this very busy post office were very courteous and cheerful.
In addition, an employee noticed that the line was very long and asked me (and others) if he could help us at the automated machine if we were using a debit or credit card. (I didn't know there was one available at this branch.)
Although I probably wouldn't have needed help at the machine, he stood by and made sure that I understood how the machine operated. It was very quick and saved me a lot of time waiting in line. If you have packages (especially priority) and are using a card, the machine is the way to go.
I just wanted to give some credit to these hard working people. We often take the post office for granted or complain when something goes wrong, but seldom do we here about all the good outcomes. So, kudos to them!
