    Mary it's very hard to get any of the "problem" people removed - . Our mail carrier told me about a mail worker that was stealing on the job . They caught her on tape doing so in different ways. They couldn't fire her so they had her sent to another branch. That's the government for you.

    Mary - go to the front and ask for randy. He's the postmaster at that office. I had to speak with him and he was very nice dealing with my issue in fixing my grandmothers multiple forwardings. He explained what I needed to do and told me to ask for him when I came in. Of course he was at lunch when I came in, but I still got my stuff handled.

    Mary, I'm sorry you have to deal with someone who doesn't do their job properly.



    I worked for almost 15 years as a letter carrier for the USPS in a LARGE Chicagoland suburb. I saw three people fired for stealing. If management does their job documenting, employees can and will be fired. Also saw two that were asked to resign (and they did) for "misrepresenting" injuries/illness. Once again, the proper paperwork and footwork done to get the necessary documentation to show there was just cause. Bad employees can be gotten rid of by good managers.........unfortunately, bad managers are way too common. A "desk job" is very appealing to those who don't want to trudge through snow for 4 months, put up with high heat and humidity for 3 months and bear the soaking rain in between so they opt for the inside job. Government jobs don't have a monopoly on excess layers of incompetent manager but it seems everyone notices the effects of them more. Okay, off the soap box..........

    I'm sorry you have a crappy post office. Mine is wonderful. I went in to tell them that I was getting chickens in and would she watch for them. She took my cell number and as soon as they came in she called and when I got there she had them near an air vent so they wouldn't be too hot and she said that she is always glad to hear a crow so she knows they are okay. Then I had to let her take a peek at them....but we are a very small town and most of us know each other. That may make a difference too.
