    Management is probably not fond. On the contrary they may want to fire the person, however, as with most Union Jobs, the lazy, disrespectful, worthless employee is the most protected because they make the most noise. If any on writes them up, they cry whatever "-ism" fits the bill and most management backs off. On the other hand, the hard working, quality employees often get screwed by the union on the rare occasion they forget to turn in a leave form on time and the government not only doesn't pay them, but also punishes them for it too.

    I've worked in public service for 12 years and have only really needed the union once and once my supervisor realized I knew my stuff, they left me alone. Now I pretty much run my department and have to hunt for my supervisor when I do need something.

    My father in law was a manager for the USPS years ago and had a couple employees he could just never get rid of.

    The doctor's office front desk staff is the worst. We've hand to complain on more than one occasion.

    Very very true. But, sometime a good paper trail is needed, in governmental and union jobs, so that proper action can be taken.

    I would suggest downloading the USPS app and signing up. That way you will know what is supposed to be delivered. You can also leave delivery instructions. I’ve been using it for months and it is great. Unfortunately there is no “attitude adjustment” feature.

    Can't. Would be unconstitutional.

    Well then, i guess I'm all for a new Amendment authorizing the privatization of the US Postal Service. Or at least an oversight committee, manned by pissed off civilians.
    Would that be alright??? :D

    If a private company took over the post office rates would go through the roof. I've never lost anything through the post office, had a few misroutes but was always able to track my item.

    That would be the only way. Our Constitution provides and mandates a Treasury, a standing Navy, and the Postal Service. It is within the power of Congress to regulate the postal service in any way they see fit.

    It's a shame when you get better Customer Service from a few lines of computer code than an actual person who I assume needs their job.
    I'm smirking over here. Certain members of Congress used the USPS as a petty cash drawer than never needed be reconciled. When news leaked out it was "investigated". Several names were mentioned, but I have yet to find numbers on how much Taxpayer money was stolen or by whom. At least one high ranking Fed was allowed to plead down to a lesser charge & resign. That kind of behavior is rampant, and hushed up when possible. Usually by the colleges of the accused who vote to not investigate further. It's not a Red or Blue thing, just a gubmint thing. No wonder we get attitude served with our fries. The problem is a top down issue.
