Once I installed the fence we found out that we have a mailman who is scared of dogs. He refuses to deliver any packages to my home. I went to the post office to work out an agreement for having my packages delivered.
At the post office I hand wrote instructions for leaving my packages on the safe side of my fence, this is on the side my dogs can't get to. I don't have mean dogs anyway, the man is just scared of them.
The postmaster decided that was fine because I told him to leave packages on my driveway provided the weather was good. Then he had a substitute carrier on my route one day who decided to leave a package at my door. Well he left it there (this was in my instructions not to be done) and my dogs tore it apart. The post office had to pay to replace the item.
Now the postmaster has decided they can't come onto my property at all. We have some carriers who deliver my packages and some who don't. I have filed complaints with the USPS and they are saying this man is making up his own rules.
The postmaster told me the whole problem was my dogs being in my front yard. I moved them to the back yard. They are bound by the electric fence. He now says this isn't good enough. That the dogs can still get out. He says they won't deliver a package to my home unless I get rid of my dogs.
I am at my wits end with this whole mess. It seems like the post office has this sheild around them and they can do whatever they like to customers. I am fed up! I am off to file yet another complaint with the USPS.
