    When your customers send checks out to you guys, how many times have they got lost in the mail this year? Its happened to me 3 times this year. Not too happy about that. The mailman is F'ing up lol.

    The only problem I have had is end of month billing not being lost in the mail - thankfully I haven't had a problem with lost payments.
    I spoke to the Postmaster at my branch, whom to his credit acknowledged the problem - ended up being a contract delivery person who was having "issues" and was terminated.
    Since then, no more problems.

    I just remembered I got a check about a month ago that looked like it went through a wood chipper. That pissed me off more than the lost ones.

    If it happened that often I would start paying a little more attention...
    Might be a wild goose chase but that number seems kinda high.

    I sent out a bill and it came back. The address was correct so I put another stamp on it and resent. The bill came back again. I checked the address again and it was correct so I hand delivered. I sent the next months bill out same address and they got it (Go figure?).

    I have had my share of postal delivery problems...too many to note them all.
