Canada Post, you guys are fucking dicks

For the past couple of months I have been getting an absurd amount of junk mail in my mailbox, despite the fact that I have posted a "No flyers please" sign. This doesn't seem to have any effect on the mail carrier because he has ignored it every single day. I am also getting mail intended for a different address put into my mailbox. Everyday I have to deliver this to it's rightful owner ie. I have been doing the mailmans job for him, for which I am NOT getting paid to do.

I have called into Canada Post to complain about this issue 3 times in the past month. Each time, they told me they were creating a ticket for no junk mail and to put mail only addressed to me into my mailbox. It got to the point on my third call that I had to be escalated to a supervisor who assured me that the matter would be taken care of. I would not be receiving any more junk mail or any mail NOT address to me. She even went so far as to tell me that they would be sending a supervisor with the mailman to ensure that he does his job properly, not giving me junk mail when I have requested in CLEAR ENGLISH that I do not wish to receive it.

Today, I opened up my mailbox and low and behold. Two flyers were placed into my mailbox. This was after 3 phone calls, 3 ticket requests, many signs BEGGING for no junk mail, the assumption that a supervisor would be making certain that he does his job properly. I have tried many different ways to convey the message that I do not wish to have any of this stuff delivered to me. It is a waste of paper that is being dumped into my mailbox against my wishes. A sign stating clear as day that I don't want any of this stuff should be enough. I feel disrespected for having my wishes COMPLETELY ignored.

I do not get paid to finish the mailmans job for him. Do you have any idea how quickly I would get fired if I ignored my customers wishes? If I indirectly made them finish parts of my job for me? I am dumbfounded as to why this particular carrier has not lost his job or at the very least had a serious warning. All of my requests have gone completely ignored.

I do not understand why I need to call in 3 times and then have to wait 30 days to stop receiving garbage that I don't want. I do not understand why a handwritten request placed directly on the lid of my mailbox is not enough to stop this. I do not understand why this carrier is allowed to get away with this every day.

Please Canada Post. Please STOP delivering this stuff to me. I have begged with you to stop and it doesn't stop. I don't know what else I can do except for simply accept the fact that my wishes are falling on deaf ears. Please Canada Post, listen to the people for whom you provide a service. Please Canada Post, PLEASE listen to the people who are paying your salary.
