Now the USPS is being portrayed has horribly inefficient.

, the USPS has advanced the myth that an unfair and incorrect pension funding formula has forced it to overpay the old Civil Service Retirement System (CSRS) by as much as $75 billion. The USPS is wrong. The funding formula was set by law more than 40 years ago, and both the Government Accountability Office (GAO) and the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) have firmly rejected the USPS claims

One day I waited in a long line and no one was at the counter. I could see that SAME lady in the back office standing there drinking water -- taking a break. She told the next customer that she hadn't had water since she started work. Is there a rule that water can't be kept at the counter station?
Wow, what nerve she has getting a drink of water! You are a real piece of work! Would love to see you at work and then criticize you ANONYMOUSLY! Think about it -- if there was no one else there then she was working ALONE and didn't have time to get water. Didn't you ever work retail? Drinks are generally not allowed by registers.

The start of this blog was to draw attention to the lady clerk working at the Pitchard Street Post Office who is holding up the line because of her inefficiency -- even though, in her own mind, she's a nice person. Well, it appears that the point has been taken by postal workers since there's been a defensive attitude taken in many posts, including posts not involving this worker. Do a good job and you are rewarded, do a poor job and you are talked about! Now, I can't wait to hear postal workers talk about this blog as I wait in line!

You're just being a stupid stubborn dickhead. Now peddle how great the USPS is somewhere else. Packages not delivered as promised, letters taking 3 weeks to go across New York will never be considered to be ok. Got it Dink?

You don't have the first clue how a Pension is funded. Employer and Employee both contribute, and the Funds are invested, in the case of FERS and USPS, it is in Government Funds.

You don't have to be mean about this. It does get frustrating when the mail comes at all different times, but, I don't believe it's the carriers fault.

When stuff I order is shipped from Albany priority it never comes in 3 days. When I look at the tracking it shows they are sent to Rochester first. Stuff from TX and CA always takes 2 days and are shipped the same method.. Yeah usps sucks, but not as bad as Combined insurance when it comes to paying out claims...

Letters rarely take more than 2 days to get across N.Y. As a matter fact most still get across the Country in 2 Days.
Once again, everyone has an anecdotal incident to point to, and EVERY "serial complainer" says the same thing "THIS HAPPENS ALL THE TIME" and you know what? It's CRAP! What really happens all the time is, Amazingly Fast Efficient and Inexpensive Delivery of the VAST Majority of what you Mail.
No one "promised" this Woman anything OTHER THAN it will get there in a reasonable time. 5 Days is only unreasonable to someone who IS Unreasonable, and looking to Blame someone else for their choice to Mail something SO CLOSE to the BUSIEST Delivery time of the Year.

And "dink" ? Really? What are you an 11 year old Girl? Living in 1965?

The Priority Center for NY IS in Rochester, even though it seem counter intuitive to go there from Albany, What is it that is being shipped from Albany? Perhaps you should have them just send it 1st Class, if you need it faster.
It does seem strange when that happens, but if you picture ALL the Priority Parcels from across the Country coming into Rochester, and Imagine the Bottle Neck created, they probably "triage" the items from further away into the stream before the items from within NY.
If you need this Item faster, you can probably work with the shipper to expedite it another way.

You lack facts, USPS Changed from CSRS, to FERS in 1984. They are different systems, they are funded differently, those who worked under CSRS did not pay into Social Security(and they are now not entitled to collect it)FERS employees DO pay into SS, for the First several years Postal Employees were paying the CSRS rates(which was higher)into the system.
FERS Employees get a Much Smaller Pension than CSRS Employees, that's why they've been brought into SS. but they AND the USPS paid those higher Rates, and are Due that Refund. It's not as if they want it to Pad someones pocket, they want to put it back into operations.

Postal Pension “Refund” Is a Disguised Taxpayer Bailout

USPS pension system is BROKE and begging for a taxpayer bail out. USPS is losing BILLIONS of dollars a year and they are begging for more taxpayer money.

Bodhi is lying again.
&#9632;The USPS claims that it overfunded its share of the newer Federal Employees Retirement System (FERS) by $11.4 billion. While some level of surplus exists, the estimate of $11.4 billion is based on overly optimistic assumptions. Rather than refunding the amount, FERS should retain that surplus and use it to offset future USPS payments. If the USPS receives the refund it wants as provided by postal reform bills pending in Congress, the retirement plan would likely become seriously underfunded when economic conditions change, and taxpayers would be forced to make up the difference.
&#9632;Similarly, the USPS has advanced the myth that an unfair and incorrect pension funding formula has forced it to overpay the old Civil Service Retirement System (CSRS) by as much as $75 billion. The USPS is wrong. The funding formula was set by law more than 40 years ago, and both the Government Accountability Office (GAO) and the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) have firmly rejected the USPS claims.

It never ceases to amaze me when anti government Jack Holes like you who constantly piss and moan about Governments inability to do anything right, suddenly point out the infallible nature of the GAO and OPM, Because their numbers say what you want.
Guess what, they make mistakes, and they did in this case.
