How has your experience been at the Petworth Post Office at 4211 9th St.?

I tried to send a portable/personal dvd player today and asked if the woman could bubble wrap it for me. She said “No.” After waiting for a reason or maybe an alternative and not getting one I asked why. She said she didn’t have any. “A cushioned envelope?”. Nope. When I asked how I was supposed to ship the dvd player she said I’d have to find another post office.

I moved to the neighborhood about 5 months ago and have been elated. Walking on air… The neighbors are great, the kids have been considerate, the gas station people are nice, the restaurant owners are gracious. I understand there are other, more important issues that need addressing (crime)… but really, is it too much to ask to have a decent post office?

Ours is fine if you want to mail a single white envelope that you already have the stamp for. Otherwise, you’ve got to find another post office.”

What are your thoughts?
