Beware if you plan to have snail mail forwarded. I moved from a local address to a new local address a month ago and gave our post office a completed forwarding form, trusting that my mail would be forwarded reasonably promptly. Not so.
After a month of not getting any forwarded mail and being told a dozen excuses such as it has to be processed in the system, it is being held in St. Louis, Indianapolis, etc., and being treated like a dummy for not understanding the situation, I am completely frustrated and have lost all respect for our postal service. When or whether I will get my mail is a mystery.
