Where's my mail?

Canada Post: Since the back to work legislation, Canada Post seems to be rationing my mail. What I mean is, since they resumed mail delivery, my house has not gotten more than two letters a day. My neighbors have said similar things about their mail deliveries, no one is getting more than the lightest trickle of mail. I'm waiting on a number of items that I know have been in their system for a month... What's going on? [more inside]

Someone stole items from our mailbox!

Someone apparently opened a package in my mailbox and stole the mp4 player I had ordered from e-bay. There was no indication on the mailing envelope what the contents were: The person must have felt the package and guessed what it contained. They left the ripped open package on our porch, along with some other mail, and two Netflix envelopes, ripped open also, for a person further up the street. What do we do about this?

Where should I put the Do Not Bend labels?

I'm about to send out about 100 envelopes (6 inches high by 9 inches wide) that I don't want bent. I'm going to have "Do Not Bend" labels printed, and plan to request that the envelopes be hand-stamped at the (U.S.) post office (and/or ask whether I can hand-stamp them myself at that location). The question: Where is the best place on this size of envelope to put a "Do Not Bend" label?
