    I feel that if you're in the business of providing a service for people it should be because you like helping people. The people at this location have been extremely rude with me on multiple occasions. They treat me like I am an inconvenience just because I'm there to get my mail. They have wasted my time repeatedly by telling me to come back at 1 and then I come back and they tell me to come back at 4:30. They have failed to give me my mail for weeks at a time. And they really need to work on their people skills. They are so unpleasant did I went in there in a good mood in the morning and they put me in a bad mood for the rest of the day. I'm still waiting for a package that was delivered there this morning. I sure hope that I get it and somebody didn't steal it. This place really needs to work on being pleasant. The people that deal with are in enough hardship as it is life is hard. I don't understand why they insist on making it harder.

    The volunteers need to stop screwing people over for needing a shower on Mondays right after the weekend is done.. 20 people on that list needed to take showers and not even my partner got in to take theirs this morning. Have someone bring back the portable showers from Finley so more people can get in take their shower and move on about there day.. Plus they ( my partner) got there early to get on the list and told they had to come back at 1pm in the afternoon.. Not good enough. So straighten your volunteers out and stop screwing your own clients over for needing showers.
