On Nov. 4, 2015 3:30pm, Wednesday I went into the Patterson Ave. P.O. to drop off a pre-labeled package. The line was 8 people long and I had one quick question I needed to ask.Not only was the line not moving, with two customers up at the counter and no clerks there, from my vantage point I could see one of the clerks through an office window. She was oozingly adding paper to the copy machine. And I do mean s-l-o-w-l-y. She was in no rush to get back to that counter. I decided to forget about asking my question, and tried to open the drop-off bucket. After several tries, I gave up.Some male employee was seated near the copy machine, talking on the phone. He studiously ignored me, when I gestured to let him know the drop-off "bucket" was stuck. The female employee was STILL trying to load paper into the copy machine.Finally, the line not having moved an inch, in all this time, I went up to the clerk who had finished her "molasses in January" copy machine task and had now returned to the counter and I said to her, "the package bucket isn't working."She could barely summon up the energy to reply to me. "It will be fixed in a few minutes," she told me. She looked for all the world like she wanted to expire from boredom.I turned to leave, my package still in hand, and as I walked past the line of people I said, "Good luck to you all!" and received a few eye rolls and "Yes, thanks!" in response. Those poor people! Post Office Purgatory.My next stop was the Loreto Plaza P.O. I was in and out of there within 10 seconds, with my package tipped into the outgoing mail bucket, no problem.I will never ever EVER again go to the Patterson P.O. What a joke that place is. A really really bad joke.
