60614 / Lincoln Park US Post Office on Clark is Awful, Hiring Carriers Who Can Not Read

I have been calling the Lincoln Park/60614 center for 2 days. The recording says to stay on the line for the next available agent but then goes directly to an off-site "operator" recording that was not answered for at least 4 minutes before I hung up. I was not able to even leave a message.

I have been calling the Lincoln Park/60614 center for 2 days. The recording says to stay on the line for the next available agent but then goes directly to an off-site "operator" recording that was not answered for at least 4 minutes before I hung up. I was not able to even leave a message.

Yesterday, the mail truck delivered a package on my front stoop in direct sight of any thieves walking by. Obviously, this carrier does not know how to read:

1. The sign on the door says to leave packages in the lobby.
2. The address label states to leave the package in the lobby. I now make that part of my address under the house number and street, above the "Chicago, IL 60614".

The package could have even been left behind the noticeable (to the carrier) brick hall wall by the door but out of street sight.

Then the carried LIED; the text sent to me saying it was delivered said it was "Left with and Individual". No, it wasn't. Yesterday, someone did answer at the carrier station just after 5pm saying they were closed.

  • At one time I too thought they were hiring illiterate carriers, mostly because we received so much mail that was not ours. I now believe the problem is that so many carriers are talking on a Bluetooth device while doing their route, and are not paying attention to what they are doing

    Yes, I lived there for 23 years and mail delivery was terrible the entire time. It's not that they didn't see the message to leave the package in the lobby; they simply do not care. I had wrong mail delivered all the time and my mail was delivered elsewhere and I sometime received it up to a year late. There was no consistent mail delivery time and we would get mail delivered at 8:30 at night. That also happens at my new 60610 address, but at least we're more likely to get our mail and our packages are left inside.

Aggressive energy salesman

A guy was triple ringing the doorbell last night around 7pm Monday). He asked to review my people’s gas and comed bills. I opened the door and pointed at the sign above the doorbell that clearly stated no soliciting. His response was “what does that mean?” I told him I wasn’t interested. Then he seemed to be acting as if he was offended. Then he took an incoming call and remained on the porch. I told him to leave and he did so slowly. As he exited, he left the gate open. I then instructed him to resecure the gate, and did so while giving me a hard look. Based on demeanor alone, I wouldn’t give his employer a chance.

The zippers are in a 'U' shape and require about 30" of zipper for each bag.

Let me know if you have a reference and contact info.

Countertop removal

I'm changing my countertops and in need of someone to carefully remove the granite from our kitchen perimeter and island. We are repurposing our cabinets and will save them for the quartz countertop addition. Any suggestions on cost of this type of service or company that provides this service?

Thanks!

  • @d3: Bought the new countertop at Home Depot. They don't do removal just installation.

    @Burgess: thanks for the suggestion. I was about to post on CL but didn't have to. I asked the contractor renovating our basement if he knew anyone who would want the granite. Luckily, he did! So glad he will remove and haul away for free :)

  • @Burgess I know this thread is old (so I hope you still check here). Do you remember the name of the person who removed your counters? We need the same thing done. Thanks!

Rudy's Bakery

Does anyone know what is going on with Rudy's Bakery on Roscoe? There was a sign in the front window during the month of July indicating that they would re-open on July 28th. However, that sign is now gone and it isn't open.

  • almost every time i see a sign in a restaurant window saying "closed for remodeling, will re-open yada yada yada......." they never re-open.

Property Tax Reducers

Does anyone have feedback to share on Property Tax Reducers (propertytaxreducers dot com)? We received a flyer in the mail and are curious if anyone has worked with them before. They work on contingency, meaning they only charge if they're successful in reducing your taxes. Thanks in advance!
