/m55527 His name was "jarhead" and he took on a school security job, after retiring from the USPS. Those jobs pay about 25 bucks an hour around here, and are relatively easy jobs. I know a couple of them, and see them at my daughter's High School varsity games. Sweet work if you can get one. and a great supplement to a CSRS pension check.

Who was the person who retired and was going to babysit his grandson? Haven't heard from him for awhile.

Hanging, I have been wondering how you've been! Thanks all for those kind posts. Smart pestered RIKSNY and Boss has a few "admirers" so I am o.k. joining in the hassled club. Hanging, Leebren hasn't posted for awhile (even on the retired forum).

/m55524 The guy who took over my route when I left was a Sub (career), and he soaked them for 11-12 hours per day on my route...which was one of the easiest routes I ever had. On a TOUGH day, I would use the whole 8 hours and be busy. On a Cake day (like my last), I had the Anchor out all day long and was still done by about 2:30. Undertime? Hell no. There's always Route Maintenance...Red book (although this was a contentious issue. They demanded it be done, but refused to let me do it), pink cards, etc. - To each his own.

Been gone over 8 years but it now seems like 20. I hardly remember what it was like, to stand there for two hours casing mail every day. Funny - 30 years of your life spent doing something that you completely forget about. But I'll take it as a Blessing.

Been gone over 2 months now. Loving the freedom! Got an e-mail from the carrier who took my route. He said he's going back to his old route, just couldn't handle mine. I'm not surprised! I'm so glad not to have to be there for the Holiday Parcel crush that's coming. I feel sorry for my fellow carriers who will have to go through it. The O.T. Hounds will have a great time though! But the carriers who want time with their families will have to suffer through another long dark cold heavy Holiday Season.

That being said: You're all my Brothers and Sisters - fellow Postal galley slaves and former slaves - so I love you all anyway - even the ones who despise me. We do have common ground, sort of like cancer survivors.

/m55516 Why bash Cali? I can understand people bashing ME, because many of my fellow Postal workers are STUPID enough to vote against their own best interests - and I periodically remind them of it - but Cali, if anybody, avoids making such controversial (and truthful) comments.

Y'all he was referring to UPS. He may have meant USPS or does not know the difference.

/m55516: Funny that this poster is calling out others for posting under multiple names. He then proceeds to trash "Cali". I'm sure that there is ONE person who doesn't like her for some unknown reason and tries to belittle her with posts from multiple names. What a fool.

I am not sure how many employees the ups has, but I assume that many of them,like myself, infrequently browse these forums with the intention of either gaining knowledge or giving information on a relative subject on a specific forum. These forums could be such valuable tools for employees, instead they are overtaken by several fools who constantly post irrelevant info on the wrong sites, these same people post on all of the sites even if it doesn't pertain to it. I feel that this compels the person with useful info to be turned away. There appear to be 5 or 10, which are probably less using multiple names. Cali is one of the worst,must have posted on every forum,never with any relevant info.

Dazed, your post reminds me of that recent chip commercial where a man tries to drive away people from sitting next to him on the plane, until that pretty woman with (oops) her baby comes his way.

How about sitting on a plane and wondering who is going to be your company. I was lucky enough to get pretty girls a few times.

/m55511 No, I'm not that big. And never been there. But I've been on the receiving end of that a few times. Like taking a Greyhound Bus...the guy sits down behind you hasn't showered for a week.
