"First-class mail volume, which has fallen 25 percent since 2006, is projected to drop another 30 percent by 2016."


This is because of the attitude of the EMPLOYEES at the postal service.

I am FED UP with walking on eggs so I don't 'upset' the clerk at my local branch or my carrier. I'm sick of having my mail smashed, drop kicked onto my porch, not delivered and/or STOLEN.

The hostility between the carriers and the supervisors is palpable. The CUSTOMER is the one who suffers when these people don't/won't get along.

Give customers ANONYMOUS survey forms so they can report their experiences to the very top. If it ISN'T anonymous, no smart person will report for FEAR of having their mail delivery compromised.

MAKE postal carriers have to wear I.D. badges so customers know who the aholes are. They should be held accountable when they act like jerks to those who are PAYING for their retirement.

In fact screw retirement. Let them work at McDonalds and see what the REAL WORLD has to deal with when they don't do their jobs right.

Someone once told me a U. S. Postal worker is the highest overpaid, unskilled workforce in the world.
