I think there's a problem with the USPS in general. In LA it's so bad that it's become a staple of local news, and my congressional rep has even had meetings with the Postmaster General. Every single time I see the mail being delivered, it's a new person doing it. Last week was extra special, when there were two guys doing it together, and we still didn't get our mail until after 7:00 pm.
I guess it's a big city problem then? I don't live in a giant sprawling metropolis (although the metro area here isn't too small), and the mail system seems pretty reliable. I thought they had all sorts of ridiculous requirements and tests to work at USPS, and that it was one of the more desirable jobs for working class people. What's with the low quality of postal workers then?
I think maybe that's UPS that's so great to work for? There's such huge turnover with our mail carriers that I have to think something must be amiss.
Also, hi Stan! You were nice to me back when I was going by another name, and I've always appreciated it.
