Last night I arrived in the Barstow Post Office parking lot at 4:48. I exited my vehicle, walked up the stairs and stood in line. I was the only person in line. I was asked to step forward to the counter a few minutes later.
I explained to the postal clerk that I wanted to open a post office box for a corporation. Now, please understand, I have opened quite a few PO boxes, know the process and how long it takes–which isn’t very long since the form is very short.
The postal clerk says to me, “You will have to come back tomorrow. You can’t expect to come in here five minutes before we close and open a PO Box.”
I explained to him that I wanted to open one for a corporation and I had the original articles and IRS letter with me. (I also had the seal, etc.) He said he would not accept any of those. He said that I needed to have two forms of ID that showed my physical address such as an electric bill or insurance policy.
He also required that I print out a letter on company letterhead requesting a PO Box, or some such nonsense, to prove there is a company. In other words, the original documents signed and sealed by the secretary of state would not be sufficient nor was he interested in seeing them. I would be required to create phony baloney letterhead to prove the company is company.
I decided that the USPS did not need my business.This entry was posted in Federal Government and tagged Inited States Postal Service by Administrator
