We aren’t ready, we’re just gonna have to deal! Late Amazon deliveries daily, lack of subs, the oversized and heavy as hell parcels that we are receiving now…..we all will do the best we can and whatever happens, happens.

Christiana Lee

And customers still b***h about not getting something that isn’t even at the office yet.

Colleen Walker

Can’t make everyone happy no matter how hard we attempt to. Do the best we can. I have a bottle calling my name after the holidays to celebrate.

Christiana Lee

Mary Davis Evans

I fill up my Blazer, without blocking the windows because that would be a safety hazard. If the parcels don’t all fit in, aux help needs to be called or I will take them on a second trip if time permits. We deserve help this time of year. FedEx gets help. UPS gets help. The plants get help. Amazon gets help. Rural carriers? To hell with us. We are hands down the hardest workers and the most abused workers in the USPS.

Veronica Lahar-Mann

I agree !

Misti Anderson

I couldn’t agree more

Scott Walker
