  2. As a postal employee, i am sorry to everyone with there mail delivery, but the fbi has nothing to do with it. i would suggest calling the greenpoint station direct.. or using to file a complaint. the usps has its own police force that looks into these matters…

    as far as miss delivery of mail, i can not make excuses but i can explain what is going on at the usps.

    as we all know after 1975 the usps stopped being a govt agency and became a semi private company. we do not receive any money from the us govt all our money is made on mail and packages.

    that being said, we are losing lots of money… there are many reasons for it, but mainly its because the us govt has to shit or get off the pot. either they must make us a profit making company, or make us fully govt’mental again. (the govt wants it both way, dictating prices and rules, and taking our profit to fund wars, but make us act like a real company.)

    in the new post office, union employees are going bye bye, and we are being replaced with non-union temp help(with our unions blessing). these new employees do not have to meet standards of the federal employees.. and they main job is to get mail out and done as quickly as they can. they are told to deliver mail by apt # only, and if there is no apt#, mark it insufficient and send it back. no name, no reading of names, just numbers.

    in the PO defense i will say this. there are many good carriers out there, but there are many bad ones too… i think of myself as a good carrier, i attempt to know everyone on my route, and keep track of forwards, changes, etc…. and i am sorry for any of you who have a “bad carrier”

    thank you for listening

  4. Wow, I didn’t know all that. Having a temp deliver the mail sounds like a terrible idea. I have a tendency to give post office employees my sympathy because my grandpa delivered the same route for over 30 years. I guess those days are long gone now.

  6. So if my Netflix delivery is a day late, blame it on the temp who is likely watching my copy of Midnight Madness before me?

Tell me what you're thinking...
