    Life is all about ass, you're either covering it, hauling it, laughing it off, kicking it, kissing it, busting it, trying to get a piece of it, or behaving like one.

    And this will be followed by a rate increase and this followed by a statement that they are losing money.The usps and schools are always crying for more money always have been for as long as I can remember.Guess what the only thing they get any better at is spending money and putting more of it in there own pocket.

    We had a rash of mailbox break ins here in the Corona area last month. The bastards targeted the cluster boxes with crowbars. Some of the boxes (including ours) were not USPS property, turns out after a long fight and lawyers reviewing contracts, the HOA owns them and is responsible for replacement. But who knows how long till they actually do something about it.
    Since the break in and destruction of the boxes, we've been going to the local post office everyday to get our mail. We were treated horribly by everyone but 1 person in that office. Last Friday we received a letter that in 14 days the PO would return all our mail to sender. They're not willing to work with us even though they work for us. We ended up getting a PO box at a local privately owned mail center. I'm now trying to figure out how to eliminate all of my USPS mail. I refuse to do business with them if possible.
    As far as them stopping delivery on Saturdays? I think they should just go the way of the dinosaur. Hopefully the DMV will die off too.
    A little polite compassion goes a long way, maybe the employees should give a little of it if they want it in return.

    They're talking about having the Post Offices open and package delivery on Saturdays...just closing down the regular mail routes. Makes a lot of sense to me.

    Default 5 day work week....

    Yes, they should save massive amounts of money by eliminating the 6th day of their work week. As it is now, they must hire additional people to run each route one day a week to prevent the regular route carrier from racking up overtime for the 6th day... A relief carrier will run 5 different "relief routes" per week...AND, the regular carrier's two days off are "earned" by seniority, so most have "split" weekends. (like a Wednesday and Sunday).... I can remember when we only had mail service 5 days a week and we got along just fine without Saturday delivery..... Besides, who really uses "snail mail" unless there is just no other way..... I think the only people that will bitch are those waiting for their food stamps/welfare checks until Monday....Tough!!!

    And this will be one of the only government jobs that will get cut. As you know all those fill in route people will be cut. What does that say about the ecconomy when even government backed companies have to cut jobs?
    So many projects, so little time
