Not sure where to put this but I need advice.
the postie put a private and confidential letter into the wrong mailbox (next doors). We don't talk to next door or really get along with them as they hate our dog.
anyways, I saw the lady next door wonder over to our mail box and put a letter in it. I thought it would be another about our dog. She is too gutless to talk and compromise like an adult. She gets her husband to bang down our door at 9pm of a night if they have a problem with the dog during the day.
so, I got the letter and it was clearly opened and tampered with. This letter was from child support services. In it, describes everything me and my family are going through ATM. Alcohol addiction, depression, pnd, anxiety and financial stress.
It was addressed to me with red PRaiVATE and CONFIDENTIAL stamped on the front of the letter. It smelt of cigarette smoke. We don't smoke.
i don't know my rights on this but I am furious and so upset.
I want to go in to her and asked if she enjoyed nosing through our PRIVATE mail that was addressed to ME. That I can see the damn letter was opened, it was barely sealed, I'm not a Moron. Stupid old cow.
It it was the posties mistake. But now my hideous neighbour knows about EVERYThInG. Including where and when my kids go to daycare.
im so so so upset about this.
What's the mature thing to do?
