When training a new sub. Does the regular get any extra money for training. One of the carriers always gets paid for training the new subs.

How is the wrecker gonna pick up that melted blob?

With a shovel ?‍♂️?

This is getting ridiculous. It’s gonna take somebody getting killed to do something it looks like.

Seems to be alot of these incidents. What say you, USPS?

Cheap gas filters. USPS won’t buy Detroit parts, these are made in China. They’re so fragile they train VMF to use a special tool to install them. Hit the P.O. with as many 1767’s as possible, the negotiations are in the works and we have crap to drive.

It’s the carrier’s fault. – USPS 🙁

Wow!! Another one!! We were supposes to get minivans about 14 years ago. Still waiting on those!

Probably more of this stuff happening than we see on here. If you smell smoke……..and if you see smoke….well you know what to do.

We got a whole fleet of minivans about a year ago but they were left hand drive….hard to deliver mail like that!

What’s amazing to me, is that the USPS doesn’t seem to want to talk to the guys that work on these day after day. At my shop, we see what looks like serious fire hazards, but are ignored. The USPS prefers to keep paying some outside company to “investigate” fires after the fact, rather than looking at causes before there’s a fire.

To quote an old movie…”You folks are gonna die in there!!!!” Seriously, all postal carriers should refuse to step foot into one of those death traps!

Management needs to step up and have automatic halon extinguishers installed before this kills someone. It would likely cost less than $500 per vehicle. Requires zero effort to maintain, and is completely automatic. The military uses them on boats and they work.
