To each their own, but I pray to God that I’m not anywhere near a post office at age 80.

Why. I retired at the first moment I could. It’s a job people, it shouldn’t be your life.

It might be her life.

Bless her…


And at 80 she still can’t afford to retire.

She would make more money if she retired. Why work when she could get as much as working? She already paid into it and unless she lives a lot longer, she’ll never get it back. Guess that’s how she wants to fill her days. Not me


Probably the last civil servants retiree on the payroll

I don’t know. I’ve heard postal retirement sucks.

Not the actual being retired part, the making pennies part.

Maybe thats what makes her happy.

I’m sure you’re right, Tom. Amazon makes everyone happy. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Thank You, Tom Newman!! People maybe she enjoys her job! How does she handle the packages??

Brandy Heston – Well, she gets full postal pay (and at the highest rate for those years) AND she till collects SS and it probably is increased for every year she works. and still gets holidays and 5 weeks AL

Gambling habit

Bless her heart.

Some folks are scared that if they retire, they’ll die. Others can’t imagine a life without working. Like Christopher said….to each their own. She should be under the old plan, and to not take advantage of that plum is crazy.

For some of us, we love our job!!! Seriously, I’m a widow and all my family work, can’t handle sitting home. My customers are an extended part if my family. Got 36 years in, si as long as the Good Lord gives me breath, I’ll deliver this mail!!!!

You go girl!!!πŸ˜ƒ

Thanks!!! I got a STacey!!!!!

Get a life

Oh I have a life, love it!!!!

Many of my co-workers have died within a year
of retiring after 20yr.
in the armed service
and 30-40 years in the post office.

I’ll be 63 when I hit 45 years…

I have city carrier at my office that’s been there for 47 years and still walking with no plan on retiring.

But a lot of them don’t even deliver all their mail anymore and make the subs take a cut on a daily basis.
