    Pi$$ed Off !!!!

    Hello All,

    I'm pissed off. My mother sent a package down from MN to FL for my little man's birthday, which is today. It had some perishable items in the package and have been expecting it for like the last week, per her instructions as she sent it USPS.

    Today, I finally call my post office to see what was going on. Luckily, I get the manager right away as he picked up the phone after 14 rings. I ask if they have seen it. He goes to look and states it is there. Not only is it there, it has been there since LAST THURSDAY !!!!

    I ask why it hasn't been delivered, he stated that the regular post office person who delivers my mail had written on there that the mail box was to full.

    Now mind you, I get my mail everyday and my box is ALWAY stuffed with junk mail. I have taken my name off every list I personally know of to not get this junk, as it fills my trash can and I feel it kills too many trees for no purpose with the invention of the internet. These are companies I have never done business with or have ever contacted. A few of them I have contacted 10-12 times in the past 8 monthes to remove my name from their mailing lists and every time it's, "Sure, we will get it done". I even spoke with a couple managers within these organizations after I get my blood pressure up and I am assured it would not continue.

    I advise the manager that I am receiving local flyers, etc. with no address or anyone at my residences name on them and I want it to stop as it is illegal to deliver mail without either of those items on them. I told him that I knew his delivery person just had extra and was filling boxes so he didn't have to take them back to the office.

    He stated, that never happens as he confirmed it was an illegal action. I stated really, I have 3 items in my hand currently that has no delivery info at all attatched to them and didn't like the fact he was calling me a liar to my face over the phone.

    Then he does a 180 and becomes really pleasant with me. But, alas, my blood pressure is rising. I ask for his name and the name of his superior as I would be having my attorney file a complaint with the State of FL Attorney Generals office and then maybe I can get some satisfaction and actually receive mail that is ACTUALY addressed to me.

    By then, he's backpeddling fast. He states, "Ohhhh, I can make that happen for you. There is no need to take it any further."

    Ok a$$hole, you just sent my blood pressure through the roof. I kindly ask he to do so, but in parting advice him of my name and that he and or his superior, would still be receiving in the near future a report from the State Attorney Generals office ... for basically wasting my time and ruining a package being sent to me from my mother.

    Have a Nice Day jerk wad ...............

    lmao, take a few shots.

    Call your credit card companies and tell them not to give out your address. They commonly do this and get paid for it, your junk mail will drop significantly.

    That's the thing. I used to work in the credit card industry and THOUGHT I knew all the tricks. National Do Not Call Lists and junk mail lists, I was on all of them ... contact any and all companies I do business with to advise, in writting, I didn't want my info sold at any cost, with the threat of litigation.

    The woman and I have ONE credit card and the rest are just monthly bills. So, I don't know where this information is being leaked.

    Trust me though, I have had enough. I'm putting my attorney to work and this problem will be solved in the long run ... and I will hit somebody's pocketbook !!!!!

    I agree with Cajun. Get the paintball gun and go crazy on random people on your way to the post office where you can really let loose. Make sure you video tape it so we can enjoy the rant too.

    Thank Gawd I just found this and it made me laugh:


    The Illegal Dam

    The following is a genuine hoot. This was an actual letter sent to Ryan DeVries from The Michigan Department of Environmental Quality, State of Michigan. The letter is standard government babble, but the humourous part is the response given after the letter.

    Mr. Ryan De Vries
    2088 Dagget
    Pierson, MI 49339

    Dear Mr. De Vries:
    SUBJECT: DEQ File No. 97-59-0023; T11N; R10W, Sec. 20; Montcalm County
    It has come to the attention of the Department of Environmental Quality that there has been recent unauthorized activity on the above referenced parcel of property. You have been certified as the legal landowner and/or contractor who did the following unauthorized activity: Construction and maintenance of two wood debris dams across the outlet stream of Spring Pond. A permit must be issued prior to the start of this type of activity. A review of the Department's files shows that no permits have been issued. Therefore, the Department has determined that this activity is in violation of Part 301, Inland Lakes and Streams, of the Natural Resource and Environmental Protection Act, Act 451 of the Public Acts of 1994, being sections 324.30101 to 324.30113 of the Michigan Compiled Laws, annotated. The Department has been informed that one or both of the dams partially failed during a recent rain event, causing debris and flooding at downstream locations. We find that dams of this nature are inherently hazardous and cannot be permitted. The Department therefore orders you to cease and desist all activities at this location, and to restore the stream to a free-flow condition by removing all wood and brush forming the dams from the stream channel. All restoration work shall be completed no later than January 31,1998. Please notify this office when the restoration has been completed so that a follow-up site inspection may be scheduled by our staff. Failure to comply with this request or any further unauthorized activity on the site may result in this case being referred for elevated enforcement action. We anticipate and would appreciate your full cooperation in this matter.

    Please feel free to contact me at this office if you have any questions.

    Sincerely,

    David L. Price
    District Representative Land and Water Management Division



    RESPONSE

    Dear Mr. Price:
    Re: DEQ File No. 97-59-0023; T11N; R10W, Sec. 20;Montcalm County
    Your certified letter dated 12/17/97 has been handed to me to respond to. First of all, Mr. Ryan De Vries is not the legal landowner and/or contractor at 2088 Dagget, Pierson, Michigan. I am the legal owner and a couple of beavers are in the (State unauthorized) process of constructing and maintaining two wood "debris" dams across the outlet stream of my Spring Pond. While I did not pay for, authorize, nor supervise their dam project, I think they would be highly offended that you call their skillful use of natural building materials "debris." I would like to challenge your department to attempt to emulate their dam project any time and/or any place you choose. I believe I can safely state there is no way you could ever match their dam skills, their dam resourcefulness, their dam ingenuity, their dam persistence, their dam determination and/or their dam work ethic.

    As to your request, I do not think the beavers are aware that they must first fill out a dam permit prior to the start of this type of dam activity. My first dam question to you is:

    1. Are you trying to discriminate against my Spring Pond Beavers or
    2. Do you require all beavers throughout this State to conform to said dam request?

    If you are not discriminating against these particular beavers, through the Freedom of Information Act I request completed copies of all those other applicable beaver dam permits that have been issued. Perhaps we will see if there really is a dam violation of Part 301, Inland Lakes and Streams, of the Natural Resource and Environmental Protection Act, Act 451 of the Public Acts of 1994, being sections 324.30101 to 324.30113 of the Michigan Compiled Laws, annotated.I have several concerns.

    My first concern is -- aren't the beavers entitled to legal representation? The Spring Pond Beavers are financially destitute and are unable to pay for said representation so the State will have to provide them with a dam lawyer. The Department's dam concern that either one or both of the dams failed during a recent rain event causing flooding is proof that this is a natural occurrence, which the Department is required to protect. In other words, we should leave the Spring Pond Beavers alone rather than harassing them and calling their dam names.

    If you want the stream "restored" to a dam free-flow condition --please contact the beavers -- but if you are going to arrest them (they obviously did not pay any attention to your dam letter being unable to read English) -- be sure they are read the Miranda rights first. As for me, I am not going to cause more flooding or dam debris jams by interfering with these dam builders. If you want to hurt these dam beavers -- be aware I am sending a copy of your dam letter and this response to PETA.

    If your dam department seriously finds all dams of this nature inherently hazardous and truly will not permit their existence in this State, I seriously hope you are not selectively enforcing this dam policy or once again both the Spring Pond Beavers and I will scream prejudice!

    In my humble opinion, the Spring Pond Beavers have a right to build their unauthorized dams as long as the sky is blue, the grass is green and water flows downstream. They have more dam right than I do to live and enjoy Spring Pond.

    If the Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Protection lives up to its name, it should protect the natural resources (Beavers) and the environment (Beavers' Dams).

    So, as far as the beavers and I are concerned, this dam case can be referred for more elevated enforcement action right now. Why wait until 1/31/98? The Spring Pond Beavers may be under the dam ice then and there will be no way for you or your dam staff to contact/harass them then.

    In conclusion, I would like to bring to your attention a real environmental quality (health) problem in the area. It is the bears. Bears are actually defecating in our woods. I definitely believe you should be persecuting the defecating bears and leave the beavers alone. If you are going to investigate the beaver dam, watch your step (The bears are not careful where they dump!)

    Being unable to comply with your dam request, and being unable to contact you on your dam answering machine, I am sending this response to your day office via another government organization -- the dam USPS.

    Maybe, someday, it will get there.
    Sincerely,
    Ray Sherban

    My mail lady loses mail on purpose, but no one can prove it. The postal system is a big joke. I'm considering taking the postal exam, but it seems to be one big cluster F*&%.
