Very little personal service in mail delivery

To the editor:

I’m an Albertan who moved here recently, and I am astonished with the postal service in West Kelowna.

What happened to the good old days of postal service? I remember greeting the mail man at the door around 8 a.m. as he delivered each and everyone’s mail personally.

Now everyone has to “go get” their mail a few blocks away at these mass drop off boxes.

You are lucky if it is there by noon or 1 p.m.

Also, why does it take eight days for a piece of mail to come from a West Kelowna business to my home?

And you can forget about getting a parcel delivered to your home. They will take the time to complete the card and then drive past your house; to your local drug store where they register it.

I have always been home.

When calling to find out why my parcel was not delivered directly to me, I was informed that is done at the discretion of the mail person.

Say what?

So that tells me they cannot be bothered, who knew?

Yes, UPS is a great option and if you are a BCAA member you get 15 per cent off. Now that’s service.

B.C. Kochanuk,

West Kelowna
