Back in the Summer of 2001, I lost $1.00 in the vending machine. Did complain about it twice to the Post Master via mail. Never got my money back. Next time I will go up in person and try to get the little money I spent on businesses such as the USPS.

Frustrated !

AUTHOR: Madas Hell - (U.S.A.)

POSTED: Monday, January 12, 2009
This Post Office is the slowest, most poorly operated one I have ever seen. The mail to be sorted at times is all day thing, never sorted by the " posting time " ... These employees are not the brightest crayolas in the box, I dont understand why they always have these lines and you always have to wait. Theres one old lady this is always grumpy and as numb as a box of rocks. I just hate going there. Madas Hell

Money lost in vending machine?

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

POSTED: Thursday, December 12, 2002
I work at the post office, and know what the policy is when machine isn't working. All you had to do was go up to the window and tell them what happened. They removed money from their drawer and try machine again. If that doesn't work, they have keys to open it up & give you your money back OR give you the stamps. Not so hard, eh? Usually take a whole 1 minute of your time. We are not perfect and cannot predict when a machine will malfunction. But, if not reported immediately, how can we prove that you were even in the post office. We can't just start handing out $1 to every person who claims to have been there on any given day. If so, d**n, I'd be sending out claims like that to every company I could and I'd be rich by now and not working my butt off 6 days/week, 10-12 hrs/day!

What to do if ANY vending mashine is down...

AUTHOR: anti - ()

POSTED: Thursday, August 08, 2002
Check the mashine, there is always a sign on it, whith the name of the operator/owner of the mashine, and with a phone number to call if anything is wrong. If there is no sign, you can ask the manager of the place where the vending mashine is.

Usually vending mashines are not operated by the offices/stores where they are. The offices/stores simply renting the place.

So if you have similar problem, first find the sign, call the number. If there is no sign, ask the manager of the place ..... This way they can put a warning sign on the mashine: "out of order".

Things pretty tight in Sevierville,TN, huh?

AUTHOR: Adolph - ()

POSTED: Friday, August 02, 2002
Holy moley! It pains me to see a person so eaten up after losing a dollar. You're obviously on an extremely tight budget. Post your address and I'll gladly send you a dollar.

It'd be my guess that there are 5,285,700,000 people that would welcome problems that could be addressed so easily.

Matt ... PLEEEAAAASSSSSEEEE!!!!!!

POSTED: Thursday, August 01, 2002
I know a dollar is a dollar, but please, you
are calling the United States Postal Service evil
scumbags!! This is all over the sum of one dollar you lost in a vending machine! How much money did it cost you to mail them letters?

Also, I really think it probably requires you to visit in person. Usually, I find the letters on this site infuriating, but I must thank you for the comic relief.

WHAT'S THE REAL PROBLEM?

AUTHOR: Sharon - ()

POSTED: Thursday, August 01, 2002
You said you lost $1.00 (one dollar) in a vending
machine in Post Office (USPS). You said that you
reported it to the post master by mail. Did it
ever occur to you to go down in person to the
Post Office and inform them that you lost your
money in their vending machine?

I've found thatpeople (who are honest, with nothing to hide), when faced with complaints would like to deal personally with people and get the problem straightened out. This manner is helpful for business.

As for the USPS being a rip artist --
you only lost a dollare, if you get a chance,
look at the other reports. People have been
ripped off a lot more.

There's a report regarding a company building terrible homes.People have lost thousands of dollars, purchasing a home that should have been a dream that turned out to be a nightmare. I'm not saying this to belittle your loss. Just go back to the Post Office and speak to post master general and let him know in person about losing money in their vending machine. I'm quite sure it will be settled quickly. I've dealt with the post office, and what I like is what they stand for when it comes to those stupid chain letters and pyramids.

I hope you're able to settle this matter.
