I read through the bull for us....Basically HQ finally saw that trucks arrive late. That costs money. Then the Queen turned to one of her toadies and told him to tell them to stop doing that. He called the vp's and told them to tell them to stop. the vp's told the area vp's.man this is gotta stop, shittts really flowing. Area vp's got off their fat butts, jumped up and down and scream at district managers that this has to stop, the avp's might look bad... dm's immediately threatened every single plant manger....So plant managers told their folks...No more late deliveries on paper... In usps land this is called problem solving... You get promoted if you don't get caught...They got caught.... Everybody promises to be good boys and girls ...But the trucks still run late... YA CAN'T MAKE THIS UP...

In my District, I overheard one pet clerk reprimand another for not scanning all the mail as "up" before 8am.

The other one said, but it's not up yet. At which the reply was that they would get a nasty email and put on a list.

Clerks can falsify documents. No problem there, pm dm vp all can falsify documents...everyone but YOU!

Did you notice...they NEVER addressed the reason the trucks are late in the first place?..sure..they make up lies about breakdowns whatever...but who uncovers and reports the truth?

Morty and Haychica......If they had to address the reason for late trucks they would have to admit they screwed up the sysytem... But the best part is that they admit in writing that clerks changed times for management and moved on...Like it wasn't that big a deal...Good grief....
If I ever get the whatever virus....It's been a while since I've visited DC and Alexandria....Some folks there I want to shake their hands...

Yes i KNOW..I was being facetious...smh...I've been enmeshed in the p.o. crap for 30 years...im well aware of the crap that goes on..Fwiw .its one reason a lot of employees aren't written up for things...then management would have to face the piper..and admit to their wrongdoings...I scratch yours if you do what i tell you...etc...

Our parcel truck........yes, we get a special truck with 99% of our non-Amazon parcels, comes between 9am and 11am usually. As a result, all carries have to return to the PO mid-route to get parcels for area we haven't delivered. The RCA Aux has to take out all other priorities once he finishes his route.

Our former PM got ahold of district and told them they need to either change the Truck drivers schedule to get him here earlier or hire a separate truck to split up his route. We are the furthest PO from our P&DC, so we get our truck LAST. However, they pick up the mail in reverse, so our dispatch is FIRST.

ANYWAYS, when the PM talked to district head and said they need to fix this, they responded with, "I would have to hire another truck. If I do that, it will hurt my bonus."

To summarize, USPS pays a district head to intentionally delay mail resulting in multiple offices and dozens of carriers being paid almost daily extra trips, 2nd trips, wait time, mileage, etc. I did a quick, but thorough, review of the last years pay stubs and I was paid between $1500-$2000 for these tasks AND I am pretty sure I was shorted often. The RCA Aux estimated he was paid over $1500 in mileage alone and probably another $1500-$2000 in pay. That's almost $6000 in one year, with a tiny office of 1 J route and 1 Aux route. The office that gets its truck directly before us is only 10 minutes away. They have 2 full routes and a few city routes. However, they have an RCA scheduled every day to deal with this(if available). So you can count on a minimum $40 a day for the RCA between hours and mileage. Thats at least $200 a week, and probably $10k a year. Thats just the Rural side. I have no idea in regards to the city carries or added costs for clerks.

All of this is intentional so that the District Manager can get a bigger bonus. Does anyone wonder why the USPS hemorrhages money?

BTW, parcel truck arrived around 1130am Thursday.
