Pleased with the postman


I came home the other day to a broken mailbox. The driver must have accidentally broken the part of my mailbox that holds my flag used for mail to be picked up when he went to place the flag down. I’m sure this happened accidentally. I called the post office to see if that is something they covered and they said no, it could have been because of normal wear and tear. However, a gentleman named Phil said he would personally take a look at it.

I came home today and went to check the mail and the part that was broken had been fixed. I found out that Phil’s name is Phil Garcia and that he had went to Lowes and bought the part and fixed it himself. I was hoping you could mention this in the Westfield Current and how happy I am to have Phil working in our local Post Office.

Phil, you made my day!

Thank you,
