Granby Post Office is doing a great job

To the Editor:
In response to Cindy Cappello (letter to the editor, July 10): Clearly, Cindy has never had to go to a post office in the city.
When I moved to Granby in October, I did what everyone does when they move: Drop a forwarding card with my new address in the mail. After a week of getting no mail whatsoever, I went into the Granby Post Office to find out if there was a problem. The nice ladies there told me there was no problem.
That weekend I was in Denver, so I stopped by my old house to make sure they had picked up my forward card. They hadn’t, and they had also left all of my mail in the box. I brought the card back and handed it to the ladies in Granby, telling them what had happened.
In my opinion, they went above and beyond the call of duty by calling my old postmaster to find out what the problem was. Turns out temporary carriers kept ignoring the forward and physically putting my mail in a box at a house that was vacant. For three weeks, I went to Denver to make sure I got all my mail.
Talk about a waste of fuel. The ladies at the Granby post office are always friendly and I get 100 times better service here than I ever would have in the city.
Also, just a little math for you ” there are around 2,000 boxes in the Granby Post Office. I get an average of three pieces of mail a day, so that is over 6,000 pieces of mail a day (not counting all the outgoing). There are only four clerks there. Perhaps you should apply to help them out if you think you could do better. I know I couldn’t.
Thank you to the Granby Post Office. You’re great.
