Unhappy with the post office

I am unhappy with the United States Post Office. Yesterday, I received the front cover of a magazine in my mail. Yes, just the front cover -- it had my address label on it. Obviously, some mishandling had separated the front cover from the rest of the magazine and they were unable to reunite the two. There was a stamp on the cover explaining that the article of mail was received as damaged by one of the post offices between me and the magazine publisher. I guess that's the way that the Post Office pushes the blame around. Fortunately for me, it's a magazine that I don't read too often anymore, so I'm not terribly disturbed, but still.

About six weeks ago, I received a mangled piece of mail that was placed in a plastic sleeve with a note that said something to the effect of "We're sorry we mangled your mail, but here it is anyway. -The Post Office" I didn't care too much then, either, 'cause it was junk bulk-rate mail. Still, in the past couple of months, I've received two pieces of mail that the Post Office mangled. What's going to happen when they mangle something I care about?
