    A little help please!

    The rest of the story: so I suggested the AUXIE carrier ask the PM for a form 8191....my thinking was there is no dialogue between the Auxie Carrier and the PM and maybe just maybe, if the Auxie Carrier would ask for a Grievance form and then the PM would ask why (this PM really doesn't have a...

    Riddle:

    A little help please!

    Are these people stupid?? PM made the Auxie carrier work the Auxie Route instead of the Primary Route. Then the RCA that has been doing the Auxie on Saturday so the 5/1 carrier can do the Primary route was loaned out to another office.....pulled off her Primary Route. So to recap: two...

    Delivery in the dark

    I can see a Rural Postal customer shooting a Rural Carrier after dark thinking we are Porch Pirates.......think about it driving a POV, with NO uniform or anything to say we are a Rural Carrier with a Parcel in our hands......going to happen.

    Help... Need some advice..

    I feel your pain. I had a spotless record for over 20 years, my PM didn't fire me but she sure tried for about 4 years and yes it can get old quick and the abuse can get unbearable. I will tell you what I did. The first mistake I made was sucking it up for much to long, didn't complain or...

    Delivery in the dark

    I have given this subject a lot of thought and have decided what I am personally going to do and given late trucks and mail volume this is going to be a issue for our PO. First and foremost my safety is paramount, so I am personally going to go down every road and in front of every mailbox; but...

    What questions should I ask PM?

    What is important to you, as far as future employment??? A path to becoming a full time Regular Carrier? Hours?? Lots of things to think over. And like you said you may not even like the job. It takes a special kind of person to work the mail and do it correctly. Many fine people come to...
