I like the postal service and love the way they're now undercutting UPS's soaring rates in many cases (as USPS continues to lose money). Even though I'm a very happy shareholder of UPS, I wish they'd get control of rates.
Favorite letter carrier story: Years ago we had a mailman who got $75,000 from the PO for a carpel tunnel "injury" or somesuch nonsense. I think he had the employee manual memorized and never burned a calorie more than necessary. Between sick leave and holidays, we didn't see him often.
Anyway, he blew the $75,000 on a fancy car and a trip with his family to Disney World... the most expensive rooms in Disney's most expensive hotel. In two weeks his windfall was spent!
