Hi there! Are you getting your letters from Chester County, PA? I am sorry to ask during this time of year, but you see parts of Chester County has an on again, off again mail problem.
You see, part of Chester County PA’s Mail sorts through another city and state. Yes, it’s true, part of Chester County’s mail sorts through Wilmington, Delaware!
Imagine, you send your next door neighbor a card and it takes not days , but weeks to arrive. Why? Because the mail sorts through Wilmington, Delaware!
Imagine you have an awesome local post office and equally terrific mail carriers. Imagine how awful they feel when they have to knock on your door and hand you damaged mail and damaged packages that sometimes look like the football after Monday Night Football! Why? Because the mail came to Chester County via Wilmington, Delaware!
Imagine you are waiting for a registered or priority package and you are tracking it on USPS.com and you watch it travel from pillar to post and then it just stalls for a couple of days…in Wilmington, Delaware. (with no explanation, ever.)
Santa, it is sad but true. When you complain the United States Postal Service doesn’t honor their “we deliver for you” they terrorize your local mail carriers and post office or they blow you off entirely. Heck maybe YOU can get them to respond to emails – because unless you are contacting the Office of The Inspector General, you stand a pretty good chance of being totally blown off.
Last time I went on a tirade against Chester County PA mail partially sorting through Wilmington, Delaware I was told off the record that the reason mail from Chester County sorts through another state entirely was Joe Biden and is this true? So should I be writing to Joe Biden instead of you Santa Claus?
I have a theory and that is the postal workers in the sorting facility in Wilmington, Delaware resent having to also sort Chester County, Pennsylvania mail. And that is why I hypothesize why mail goes missing, has inexplicable delays, and gets damaged. And who can blame them? Wouldn’t you be upset if some politicians just doubled your workloads because they thought that was the solution to some stupid political agenda?
So Santa, if you can talk to USPS about the mail and ask them to do something about the Chester County, Pennsylvania mail partially sorting in Wilmington, Delaware that would be an awesome stocking stuffer this Christmas!
I love the Farmers & Mechanics Building and was super excited that Myles Development was thinking outside the box and creating a boutique hotel. As a matter of fact I had offered Tom Myles free photography of his site as it was being rehabilitated for a “brag book” I was so excited. But I never heard a thing after I offered that in February, 2016. And that’s fine, I am busy enough as it is.
But… who has heard anything about how the rehab/adaptive reuse is going? Has anyone seen the work so far? (I am still really interested in the rooftop garden and how that will turn out!)
I went searching for news and found the above on a small hotel site called Marshall Hotels & Resorts.
I saw an update that they are pre-leasing office space – that was on the Myles Development site and screen shot below.
But that is it – can’t find additional media coverage or anything. I am rooting for this project, so if anyone has any updates, please post a comment!
