You should call the USPS 800 number and report them. Seriously. This is not the way for them to behave. Pickup of packages is free, end of story. They have to do it, end of story. It's not optional. Most people who work for the post office are very helpful, but I have found that some don't have the concept of customer service. One clerk at the main post office used to give me a hard time because I had so many packages. She would take other people who just wanted to mail one thing ahead of me, even though there was a line for everyone. She would kind of slam things around and not speak to me. So finally I apologize loudly and sarcastically in the presence of the postmaster for giving the post office so much business and said maybe UPS would appreciate me. Then they got the word from on high that they must not make anyone bringing in a large amount of packages wait while they waited on people who just wanted a stamp. So they are getting a clue, but sometimes you have to educate them. Here is the official USPS info about carrier pickup:
