"YOU LOST THE MAIL?!"

"You told me to lose the mail."

"I TOLD YOU (NOT) TO LOSE THE MAIL!!!"

"Oh...........my bad."

If her bubble cutie mark refers to bubble wrap to make her a mailmare, surely that requires her to be good at it.
Why do people so often present her as incompetent?

It's pretty well established in canon - it's part of her character. The Last Roundup and DerpyGate was all about that, but it's in other episodes as well.

mlp.wikia.com/wiki/Derpy

*****
Derpy appears with intentionally crossed eyes in Feeling Pinkie Keen; when Twilight spies on Pinkie Pie, a series of objects falls on her head: a flower pot, an anvil, a cart of hay and finally a piano. A camera pan reveals that the items were dropped by Derpy and Raindrops, who are hovering next to a movers' truck.
*****

WRT 'bubble wrap', her cutie mark wasn't from Faust. As she mentioned here on dA when asked about Derpy: "Background ponies have no name, and their butt symbols are picked at random."

The job as mailmare wasn't (isn't?) canon, either:

*****
Most notable of these short stories is Bright Eyes written by Manefag, which gave her the job of delivering the mail.

I feel that she is generally wildly mishandled bye both show and fandom. And Faust's will is completely irrelevant now.

There's a lot of potential for a really strong character in her - primarily concerning Dinky - but people prefer to just make her the whimsical retard.
Derpygate was our punishment for this.

Ah, sorry, I was just trying to clarify her backstory and history, esp. WRT bubbles/bubblewrap / mailmare being non-canon. Since she appeared in S1E1, Faust was the voice of canon for her initially.

In terms of where the fandom has taken her, esp. WRT Dinky, I find her flaws endearing, and outside of Dashie's treatment of her in The Last Roundup (well, and Winter Wrap-Up), I think it's good to see that Ponyville society remain inclusive.

Certainly it can be argued that she lacks nuance as-is and may be a Christmas special martyr as Snowblind puts it, but I think Faust's take on it, while she is fully clear that this is the fandom's character, she can provide the Harpo Marks slapstick-y character.

To reiterate, though, my initial response was based on the incorrect assumption that you were speaking of Derpy's canon background, so I apologize. :)
