I am a physician in Las Vegas, Nevada. I rented and paid for a postal box at the PARADISE Post Office at
Swenson and Tropicana, LV, NV 89132 since 1991 !!

My box rent is due (I pay yearly) in December.
I'd just returned from vacation (a nice cruise and long overdue, thanks!) and came in to pay the rent.

Getting in line I waited my turn. Two clerks were behind the counter. I happened to get a man I'd never even seen there before -- a large, overweight man of shall we say 'color'.

Going up to his counter when called, I noticed immediately an "attitude". First he stared at the fur coat I was wearing, then at the rest of my appearance. He frowned at me. When he asked the number of the box and I said "I'll write it down" (which I always do, as a COURTESY to the postal clerk, who doesn't have to remember it as they go pull up the records) -- he got an expression like thunderclouds . . . and walked away as I was talking.

After perhaps 2-3 minutes he returned and picked up the paper, still with the hateful look toward myself.

When I told him I was paying the box for a year and that it was actually due a week or more ago but I just got back from vacation . . .

He began to write my receipt. I began to write a check. He handed me the receipt and TOOK the check. NOTHING whatsoever was said about any kind of "requirements" -- i.e. that a check must be blue or green . . . whatever . . . before it would be accepted. I had always paid in CASH before -- all TEN years! -- but as I say was just back from a trip overseas.

I was about to leave when he harumphed and said "I can't take this check". I reminded him I'd had the box TEN years, AND was a local DOCTOR.

He got verbally abusive, and said the check was "bad" (due to it being a 'temporary' -- i.e. without My name and address on it). I told him that the only "bad" check was one written without funds in the account, and that mine was well covered.

He still refused. I then said: "Okay, just hold this and I'll go get the money". He replied: No, I won't do that.

However, he still held onto my check. I became very upset and left the p.o., with my (legal, by any standards . . . showing I DID PAY) receipt.

That was just before a weekend. When I came in to get my mail on Monday, the box was closed and my key did not work anymore.

It seems that Mr. IDIOT had (purposely) re-rented my box (even though I had a RECEIPT, was a ten year customer, a physician, and had expressed my definite intent and ability to pay for the box, as I had done for more than a decade).

CALLING the supervisor over, I got a "duuuuh" response. He said "I can rent you ANOTHER box".
I replied "Oh . . . then there are PLENTY of others still for rent, to whomever comes in and asks for one?" He responded "Yes" -- and I insisted he go and tell me the numbers of those.

INDEED there were five or more boxes -- yet this clerk had rented MINE out -- rather than those.

I NEEDED that same box number as I get much professional mail there.

WHOM should I complain to? I'd frankly like to see this abusive IDIOT fired. How dare anyone take out a 'personal vendetta' against a postal customer . . . and box holder here in town for all those YEARS?

IF you have suggestions or know the name of the head postal supervisor in Nevada or Vegas I'd certainly appreciate your ADVISE. Thanks so much for allowing ME to vent, Dr. B.

Are you on your own prescription?

AUTHOR: Joe - (U.S.A.)

Hey Doc...do you work the late-night ER or what? Did you recently go cold-turkey on the coffee? Why are you such a dinkhead and throwing your wealth (or apparent wealth) around at this site? In the big picture of things, you and your fur coat are but a tiny cancerous mole on the ass of society.

Have you been prescribing your own meds and over-taking them? Cripes I hope you don't treat any humans...I wouldn't hire you as a vet for my guinea pig.

I have a full-time job, decent income, and time to spare taking vacations to places I want to go to...but don't have to flaunt my mangy rat-fur bargain basement coat I got on ebay for a buck. I also don't pick on people or blow my top for something that is my own damned fault.

You are clearly wrong, but are too self-absorbed to realize it and too "proud" (arrogant, hedonistic...whatever) too admit you were not the person in the right. I had a PO Box for 20 years....and don't expect that if I f*'d up and forgot my bill, that someone else would take care of me. That's why you have accountants, that's why you have illegal immigrant maids (likely the case for you anyway).

Go prescribe yourselve some valium and leave us the hell alone...and go get a new PO Box and re-print your checks WITH THAT ADDRESS!!! I just have to laugh at you as you deserve such a pain in the rear-and printing new business cards and paper again. Then go take another vacation to some place that will get overrun by the plague.

HA HA HA HA HA. Serves you right, moron.

get a life internet geeks

AUTHOR: Lew - (U.S.A.)

Yeah I'm sure you're talking about yourself paul from anaheim since you have no life and your posts are flooded everywhere on this website, along with the rest of the goons here who probably have no jobs and sit on their fat butts being mean to people who post reports. This weird doctor might be pompous but he/she is funny and has a lot more personality than you dumb internet freaks with no life. Why don't you get off your fat butts one day and explore the real world, instead of sitting here poking fun at people who come here to post unfair situations or bad businesses. Maybe once you pathetic geeks get a life and go OUT in the real world you'll end up posting reports instead of trolling this place and insulting people.

There are some people that just can't get along. The rest of the world is stuck with them.

AUTHOR: Paul - (U.S.A.)

Perhaps, they are always mad at something.

Or, maybe they don't have any concern for anyone else besides themselves.

No matter where these people go, they have problems. Dogs bite them. Children throw rocks. Other people try their best to stay out of their way.

Unfortunately, you have to deal with these people sometimes.

It's only natural that if you go out and try to cause people trouble, that they will do the same to you.

When you have a problem, ask yourself how often this kind of thing happens to you. Because, if you find yourself in a constant battle with the world, you just might be one of these people.

There Are Strict Check Acceptance Rules at USPS

AUTHOR: Bob - (U.S.A.)

Clerks who violate check acceptance procedures must reimburse the check themselves if it bounces and isn't immediately repaid by the postal customer. Accepting a counter check would be pure folly for a clerk.

Thus said, looks like you and the clerk hit it off poorly and he decided to treat you very poorly too. He could have asked when you'd return with a proper check and consulted with his supervisor to see about holding your box.

Apparently, he failed to go the extra mile for you because of the personality clash. This is very poor customer relations, and you should press it up the chain of command.

USPS expects professionalism from all employees.

I agree Had the doctor shown some respect

AUTHOR: Joe - (U.S.A.)

I agree with the rest of the posters.

Had the doctor shown some respect, she might have her old PO Box. Had she paid the bill on time, she certainly would have it.

Her condescending attitude comes through on this site, raking our feathers. Imagine how the postal employee felt? He should be given the postal employee of the month award.

Gone Postal?

AUTHOR: P - (U.S.A.)

I was searching the Rip-off reports for Tires Plus and came across this garbage report. What a waste! That doc must be a psychiatrist who is obviously mad about being ripped off instead of ripping off her patients or maybe Bee is a doctor of slot machines?

Tis a pity that her swollen head is stuck up so far in her ass that she isn't able to get it out. Perhaps Tires Plus can help her out with that? Sounds like she needs a lube job and a good screwing by Tires Plus.

Most people never get a vacation because they are too busy trying to pay off doctor bills so that doctors like her can brag about having such wonderful vacations.

Is there a Rip-off Report category for patients being ripped off by their doc?

Why is this in the "Tires Plus" search anyways?

Aye Carumba!

AUTHOR: anon - (U.S.A.)

Doctor, heal thyself!

I used to work retail, and I can tell you some people go into stores or restaurants or I guess post offices with all their pent up crappy days waiting to explode out of them. They spew at the first person who has the misfortune of having to wait on them.

I think this post is a matter of over compensation. The "doctor" knew that they screwed up, were late, in arrears, did not pay as agreed.

So, instead of walking in, hat in hand and asking to renew the box with a sorry-I'm-late tone, no, you walk in with a I'M BACK FROM MY FABULOUS VACATION, WEARING MY FUR, I'M A DOCTOR, DID I MENTION I WAS A DOCTOR, I'M A DOCTOR, YOU KNOW" attitude.

If you have such an established reputation in town, such a longevity, why are you busting the chops of your local post office with starter checks?

I recently moved to a new state, and the DMV here didn't take starter checks, either. I don't think that is very unusual.

So, why don't you go sit in the corner and suck on your fur coat? Dweeb.

Ever go to school with that little punk kid who would hit someone and then run to the teacher crying?

Doc reminds me of that person. Instead of running to the teacher he just shuts off his e-mail and blocks out all of the noise.

If he could have us all fired he'd do it in a heartbeat.

AUTHOR: Adolph - (U.S.A.)

Gawd! I sure hope the "doc" is a veterinarian. With his ascerbic, pompous attitude, I would shudder to think of this cretin even geting close to any vital part of a fellow human.

I'm sure the "man of color" was immediately and thoroughly impressed with the narcissism and $hitty attitude of this whining a$$hole!

I can only regret this "large overweight man of color" wasn't able to take his snivelling a$$ out back for a knuckle sandwich.

ONE Intelligent Person Responded at Least

AUTHOR: Doctor - (U.S.A.)

THANK you Howard, for your very well
written and appreciated comments.

AS far as "The Fraud Chick" goes -- this is obviously some ESCAPEE from an Arkansas mental hospital, who has nothing better to do while she is on the loose.

FIRST: She does NOT know Me -- or one thing about Me. A 'self appointed doctor' ?? Everyone out there will be happy to know that a red brick school in Cambridge, Mass was happy to 'appoint' Me (cum laude and board certified).

SECOND: I have contacted the Consumer Dept. of the local post office. They agreed with ME -- that the 'man of color' (I didn't say what color . . . fraud chick jumped to a loony conclusion there -- he could have been a GREEN martian) was WAAAY
out of line, WAS clearly attempting a vendetta and would have such put into his federal employee file.

IN fact, the supervisor of ALL the post offices in Vegas called and raked both the 'martian' AND his super over the coals -- telling them that you DO NOT say to an 11 year box renter that they're offering a "bad check" -- and you do NOT re-rent their box, out of vengeance because they are professional or well dressed when you've given a LEGAL Receipt showing they've paid. I'm happy to say I WON, in this case.

I'M sure loony tunes in Arkansas will write some more GARBAGE -- but I'LL NEVER SEE it, as I'm blocking this site FROM My MSN browser for now.

AGAIN: Thanks Howard and everyone else who does is NOT a "cranial/ rectal inversion" like fraud chick (who won't even get the reference --
too few little grey cells) and

who truly TRIED to HELP (rather than going on a rant, due to jealousy over My occupation like you know who).

THANKS again to those who began this site also -- I think I'll send you a
contribution for support.

TO "aol" I'll send the sour lemon award for allowing mental patients like fraud chick to be out of their
RESTRAINTS long enough to get Online.

Most places won't take checks without your info printed on it you pompous ass!

AUTHOR: sara - (U.S.A.)

Give me a break! I thought you said you were a doctor. Solely based on your report, the person being abusive is you, and quite frankly, complaining to others about this will show others, if they don't know already, what an idiot you really are! Or at least reveal your problem with keeping your obligations in order.

I certainly hope that you don't push off your patient's needs until you feel that it's convenient for you. You certainly are not compassionate towards others when they are trying to help you fix YOUR MISTAKE! Most people know that checks without your information preprinted on it are not acceptable at most establishments, and post offices. Which of course makes me wonder why you don't have acceptable checks.

YOU were the one that forgot to pay the rent, not them. YOU are the one with a racist attitude- which might help explain why you, being a doctor, didn't have enough cash on hand for a small rental fee. Nobody wants to pay to be abused by you. Even if you just came back from a cruise, you should be able to afford to pay ontime. They don't have to wait for your permission to rent out the post office box if you are unable to pay on time. The post office, and I as a reader, realize that you being a doctor doesn't grant you a license to abuse the system.

Hoping that someday you may get over yourself,

Your self-importance is tiresome...

AUTHOR: TheFraudChick@aol.com - (U.S.A.)

Dear Bee:

I think the postal employee should be commended for actually doing his job. No post office should take a counter check, or "starter check" set from anyone for any reason. Las Vegas, NV is the scam central for telemarketing schemes--I wish more postal employees were as diligent as that one. You could be anybody opening up a box or renewing a box to scam others.

Who cares if you're a doctor? You may be a self-appointed doctor for all we know. I know some doctors who are some of the lowest forms of life. If you had taken care of business and kept track of your files you'd know your box had expired or was due to expire. You screwed up and you want someone else to paypathetic.

Get over it.
