Submitted request for mail hold for Thanksgiving week, beginning Saturday November 19 until Monday November 29. Stopped home Tuesday, November 22 between trips, to find mailbox full of mail.
Contacted post-office, they "forgot" that the start date should have been Saturday, so mail was sitting in the box for 4 days. New request - December 22 to January 3 - you guessed it - came home today, December 24. Not only was the mailbox full of mail, but a USPS package was sitting on the front doorstep. This despite complaint about previous mail hold.
Different story every time - substitute not aware of mail hold, supervisor "forgetting" to tell delivery person about mail hold, etc., etc.
In the meantime, we had a certified letter sitting at the post-office for 8 days before they decided to send us a "2nd" notice - never had a "1st" notice.
Typically certified mail has an "urgency" to it. I believe it is retaliation for my complaints about delivery during hold times.
