That's completely possible, even probable of course. It's just not
something anyone that I know experienced, even here in Houston.

I've had issues with the post office going back nearly a decade now.
They moved our delivery from the local branch to a different office back
around 2010. The service hasn't nearly been as good since.

As a personal choice, I don't trust drop boxes either. But then I might
just have trust issues.
