The United people seem at fault, because if you had been able to tell them you might die if you went 10 miles away to their "contracted" hospital", would they have said "stay there", or "what's your point?". They are being dishonest by forcing preapproval in an emergency situation.

Shy Dude: I'm afraid I don't have an exact answer for you, but I'm confident that it will happen. Why, you ask?

Listen up, everyone. Listen good.

I spoke with someone yesterday - someone with a lot more knowledge of the "inside track" than Mariah has. Let's just say that it was encouraging news. VERY encouraging news. Shy Guy, I'd be hopeful. I'd be VERY hopeful. Speak to your supervisor, manager or Union Steward if you would like a more specific timeline. I liked what I heard. And I needed good news. Why,

Well, it looks I've got a battle on my hands between the stupid hospital and my insurance carrier. My health insurance company has NEVER refused to pay a claim. NEVER. In trying to resolve this, I'm getting slightly contrasting statements. I don't know who's right. All I know is this: both parties admit the fault wasn't mine. United personnel state that the hospital didn't delineate or explain their outrageous charges. Insurance fraud is prevalent and on the rise. However...

I was told that if United Healthcare doesn't pay, Mariah gotta pay. Nearly eleven grand. When I reminded the nice, altruistic hospital rep. that it expressly states on the denial letter that the fault was theirs and that "member may not be billed for the denied amount" - I was told that United Healthcare was not contracted with their hospital. Okay...

So, when one is rushed semi-conscious in an AMBULANCE to a hospital and ORDERED to be admitted as an inpatient, I'm supposed to rip two IVs out of my arm, suddenly become cogent, and traipse out of the hospital in a hospital gown? No one, including upper management personnel, asked the ambulance dudes if the hospital to which they were dragging my ass was "contracted." So now, I gotta fax a statement to the hospital reminding them that I was told that two major body organs were failing and that I was ORDERED to be admitted. I reminded them of other salient information.

I got a committee of United people "working on this." But evidently, if United don't pay, you know who is gonna get stuck with this mofo. And I can't pay it. If I have to pay it, I'll have to take a drastic step - one that will ruin my hard-earned excellent credit rating. I mean, who TF has eleven grand to dish out on a Tuesday mornin'?

I'm stressing. This has NEVER happened.

How much would anyone like to wager that RETDCO and Born2Key are the same person?

Go join Narcissists Anonymous. And keep the hairs on the back of our necks from standing on end.

Yo, RETDCO, I thank you for taking all of the heat away from me and directing it towards you. I appreciate your service to our country. I have a hard time reading the self-pity laments of these people. Do they not understand that all they do is data entry? At about four times the pay of a job in the current market.

For a mindless effort?

And they get a government retirement?

Listen to a book? Listen to music? And bitch about it. Who said silver platter? Who said they are not alone? Well, they are not aware of it yet but they are alone. A company that is losing money cannot afford to keep paying these wages to employees that are either tuned out or even sound asleep.

The RECs started as a contracted job. Eight dollars an hour. No benefits.

And when gone how many of you REC rats think you'll just transfer to another postal job? Holy Crap you are in for an amazing awakening. Too hot? Too cold. OMG too loud? Too dirty. Too physical? Why does your first level supervisor scream at you so much? Why does your second level supervisor tell you to work faster? And your Manager will not even look at you.

You know RETDCO you have seen more than I have. I remember you saying you were a former Navy and retired Air Force. During Viet Nam. I am sure that was a totally lack of respect from your non-military peers. Kinda like now.

Why not we just leave this place. The current posters have no clue; they moan against us harder then they attack Mariah. I do not understand that.

So what do you say we go post with grown-ups? Adult readers. Ditch the Bitch.

Whenever someone who doesn't work here posts the scene from mean girls always comes to my mind..."Do you even go to this school?" "No...but I have a lot of feelings." Because...clearly you do.

Back to 0 days without an accident, I wonder what happened this time.

Its cool again in the building today! Or at least in pars 2.

Right on!

MACK: This dude don't got me stung. It would take someone who's a real man - and whose opinions I respect and admire - to accomplish that feat!

Hey, I was just thinking - I think your seven years of perfect attendance ought to get you more annual leave - or some bonus? Do you second my idea?

/m42894 I don't place any value on your opinion RETDCO, it doesn't matter what you think. Find something better to do with your retirement than being a troll, like working on the impulse control problem you have. If you never meant to come back to this forum, why did you?

Ass? Silver Platter?

You had it handed to you, RET.

They're not alone. Know that.

LastREC: Don't let this resentful ex-employee bother you. You've got a lot more seniority than lots of us and you've got a lot of knowledge and wisdom about the REC. As does MACK.

If you want to take Veteran's Day off, it's your business to do so and nobody else's. If you wish to work it, that's your business as well. And congrats on your 400-plus hours of annual leave! That's great!

REC comrades, let's support each other and not feed on our own bile and/or hatred.

Whew, RETDCO, you're a prince.

Thanks, MACK: Trust me, I've discussed RETDCO's posts with management/supervisory/union personnel.

You know that tired, hoary belief that one can hide behind a computer if certain tragedies occur?

This icky, disgruntled former employee should probably think again.

Chin is up - along with my lookin' forward to returning to work tomorrow after my two days off! Lookin' forward to signing that holiday sheet! I'm glad that management requires that if a keyer signs the sheet, they can't back out. Except, of course, for a health crisis and/or a death in the family.

RETDCO? Ugly, bitter former group leader whom no one could stand? Who called Holocaust descendants Hitler? You're retired, asshole. Go away. Keep your ugly, disgruntled self away from this board. No one appreciates you or your fetid excrement. You don't even matter any longer.

Trust me, I wouldn't crap on the better part of him if someone paid me a trillion bucks.

m/42892 How many times have we had an OT call on a holiday??? Ummm, almost all of them. Usually for a couple days in a row since nearly 50% of the workforce is given the day off.

It used to be that holidays were so slow at the REC, practically begging you to take a pretour and I would get forced out after 2 hours. After the new career ratio, holidays are usually OT central, especially if your holiday is on a Sunday like mine often are for a Monday holiday. Tons of OT.

Aaaack! I'm so sorry that someone said that to you, Mariah. That is a low, low blow. I know you've mentioned that post in the past, but I didn't realize it was Retdco who said that to you. He seemed like a gruff, grizzly old harmless guy...although maybe the way he admired Born2key standing up for another poster by using homophobic slurs should have been my first clue that he wasn't. \_(ツ)_/

What I find so odd is that the people who are most annoyed by your loquacious posting style lurk on the board and rarely post, choosing to contribute so little or nothing at all...but then all of a sudden they have plenty to say about the ppl who provide the content that they read.

What can I say? Haters gonna hate! Keep your chin up. The USPS is lucky to have someone as dedicated and positive as you. While I'm sure it stung at first, hopefully you can shrug it off and not take it personally. I certainly wouldn't!

I just meant to never come back to this site. And yet I did. Damn it.

Mariah, you always say you're going away. Yet here you are. I suspect Bumphuk Kansas did not have a bumpken willing to bump you. Nor LA, or SLC. Sight unseen I know why.

LRS. Which word "twit" or "dyke" or "jerk" or "old crank". /m42891. No rocket knowledge needed.

As a vet. I think you should change your attitude on Vets day. There is a reason. We save your wimpy ass from having to do it. Key away.
