  2. I remember reading about the postal shootings of old, and they think it happens because working at the postal service just makes you feel unimportant, like a number, etc. :meh:

    i'm sorry but the amount of money the IDIOTS at the post office make, they could treat me like a number if they wanted to. the usps is the most worthless run organization on the planet earth. the employees are rude, surly and can barely read. i no longer use them for anything except where i work. i will pay extra to ship with fed ex or ups. last xmas, the postal employees stole about 300.00 in merchadise from me at my job. they refused to do anything about it until i got my friend involved who is a usps postal inspector and then they we more than willing to help. oooooooooohhhhhhhhh now im mad again.

    It's the glue on the envelopes. It killed Susan.

    I wonder if anyone will catch on to my subtle sitcom reference. Bonus prize to the first one who does.

    Seinfeld - George's fiancee when sending out invitations.
  7. Seinfeld! I love the bit where Susan's dad asks the members of the the memorial foundation, "Does any else think George killed Susan?", and the guy responds, "I just assumed he did". lol

    Dude, I find that comment pretty offensive.

    My mother is one of those "IDIOTS". She has worked hard all her life delivering mail. She's not an idiot and doesn't make that much money, but still works hard every day to make sure ungrateful people like you get their mail.

    It is a hard job. You really have no idea. After carrying a heavy mail bag for 25 years she has developed a bad hip. Sorting through millions of pieces of mail has made her hands sore with chronic arthritis. Many hot and sunny summers have led to a possible cancerous skin problem. She's been bit by dogs, taken falls down icy steps, and was even robbed once.

    Now consider that people like you think they are all idiots. Hmm... I wonder why some of them are a little pissed off???

    Don't you love it when, because of a few bad eggs, all of a sudden people put the whole group into the same category? There's a word for it....hmmmm....let me see....oh yeah....stereotyping.
  10. How does that affect the stereotype regarding... DMV employees? :D

    Most of the post office employees I've met and worked with (I used to work in the mail room of a large hospital complex) where wonderful, and well adjusted people.

    Sames here...

    I worked for the Postal Service '92, '94-'96 (in Boston, North Dartmouth, New Bedford and Plymouth, MA) and I resent that comment davetakis!!!! :mad:

    Furthermore, My stepfather worked for the Postal Service for over 38 years (nearly 30 years as a Postmaster) and he isn't an IDIOT!

    Very Uncool! :mad:

    Do they own weapons?:smug:

    Na man didnt mean for this to turn into a fight. I was serious when it came to the question. What is it about this job that attracts people to it or turns them into a killer? Sure the job is hard and alot about it might suck but thats just about every job.

    Wages, benefits, job security. That's not difficult to understand.
  17. There should be a smilie- Sorry, I was assuming the sarcasm would shine through.

    I'll edit the post.

    However it doesn't change the fact I've always gotten less than stellar service at the DMV. That's just indicitave of an extremely busy job dealing with people that generally aren't happy when they're there.
