Good Day Postal Employees!! This month is Breast Cancer Awareness month and I would like to thank all who have prayed, shown concern and support during these past couple of years for my daughter, whose real name is actually Hope. This month is a major check up and we pray, I can come back and continue to say she is in remission. Again, Thank you All!

I have been overwhelmed this month with angry emails…I hear so many of you describing your “current status” as “sick of this $#!+” You write that the pressure to do the SAME JOB in increasingly LESS and now, even LESS time than what was “status quo” based by the rules, or regulations, or audits, insane inspections…just to name a few.

Regardless if it’s the amount of mail to be delivered in a shorter period of time, or mail sorted & distributed with LESS employees, , or having totally…as one reader described…having the MOST incompetent Supv/Mgr/PM/ in the entire district. Or one that has been moved (within the district)..or found out the NEW (Supv/Mgr/PM) was placed here because they have totally “fubar’d” in another job, district, office, plant, NDC, yea!


Of course this happens….always has, always will. The screw-ups (especially EAS, the higher in level you go, they always manage to “make themselves indispensable to a “higher level” than themselves. And will do just about anything that the higher EAS employee told them to do. They wind up having so much “insider knowledge” that your every day normal, NON-SUCK-UP EAS employee does NOT. And still, being that same screwed-up EAS employee, the harder the agency has to protect them. So they move them around and around, until they retire or do something so outrageous that it makes the NEWS…ah..yes, ..then they react. Why…. because they know too much. Here is the theory I have used for years it’s TRUE. (every time it’s TRUE). When there is a “manager” that turns their head when their subordinate crosses a line, does the same incorrect thing, over and over, have EEO’s filed against them for the same reasons, just a multitude of BS that this general “screw-up” EAS employee has going on; AND WHEN THAT higher level EAS manager does NOT discipline that lower level EAS employee (suck-up)……its because that lower level EAS suck up employee has enough information to BURY that higher level EAS manager…do you hear me….EVERY TIME!! And I’ll just bet, some of you who read this column will be pissed because you know I am talking about YOU! And the other 99% that are SOLID employees, know I am right.
