Some times you have to wonder what they do with it.
Something I allways wondered about is, what happens about mail that was on a plane that went down or if a truck carrying it was in a bad accident. Sounds petty compared to what the people involved went through. But I am sure that in some circumstances it could have serious repercussions if a important piece of mail was totally lost.

Bob a couple of years ago, we received a Christmas card from my sister in February. Thinking back we had already received one, checked the postmark, it was from 3 years previous???

sounds about right. i get overdue on my utility bills at least 3 times a year because the mail never got to me and was never found. i guess that $27/hr that we pay the carriers ain't enough. i bet the USPS will be looking for a raise soon.

"zipcode" hasn't been delivering mail for over five years now. i dunno, maybe i have good luck but i seldom have ANY problems with our mail or maybe it's because i write clearly and make the zipcode twice as large as the other print on the envelopes, packages, etc.
27 bucks an hour? the wages musta gone up since i was working at the PO.

I live in a small town of less than 10,000.
We used to have three seperate deposit boxes at our post office. One was for "local", one was for "out of town", the third was for "metered mail". We still have three boxes, two with nothing on them and one for "metered" mail. Seems our local postal workers no longer seperate and disperse local mail. They now just dump it all into one sack and ship it off to Houston to be sorted and sent back to Liberty. So local mail now, if it gets here, takes several days.

Our city utility provider sends out paper bills and reminders to all the residents once a month. Well a lot of us are not getting them, causing cut offs and reconnect fees to have to be paid. I recently found out the "mechanical" mail sorting machine in Houston shreds them up!! That is why we dont get them.

Makes me wonder what the local postal employees are doing now, with that extra time,that they do not sort the local mail?

Mail sent to the next house is sent to a city 60 miles away and takes days to arrive. Of coarse we just hand deliver and have an excuse for coffee and cake and they do the same.

it had no effect at all.

toolman    Posted 01-28-2005 at 11:53:34       [Reply]  [No Email]

thanks, I already own one like that, two in fact.
I dont have a license to carry concealed, and being a law abiding citizen I went postal with a razor sharp tongue. Unfortuantely it did not work!

toolman    Posted 01-28-2005 at 12:14:31       [Reply]  [No Email]
hmmm a lady with a razor sharpe tounge would scare me more than a gun unless of course it was that lady totin it.
