Nothing new up here.
Oh, I have my mandatory week break in service next month...I will not get paid for being out of work but the USPS will cash in all the AL I have accumulated during the year.

Well? before its crazy . . . just thought I'd wish everyone a great rest of the year. Invite everyone to drop a line or two and share how things are going (working or retired). I'm still working 6 days a week. Office has opening for another PTF and I have requested my position be converted to full time. Probably something that should have been done years ago but I kind of figured why bother, I'm making full time hours. Now concerned with new PTF, my hours would be cut.
Most of the offices are stretched even thinner, as not only do we not have enough clerks they are now spreading PMs out. My PM is over two L18 offices but no official classification (APO or RMPO) as of yet. Suspect eventually both offices will be RMPO's
Big push for Amazon and this weekend starting an increase of offices delivering Sunday packages. Retail already picking up, so gut feeling is this will be a good revenue season. How 'bout ya'll?

I see.

Generally the uprounding would be for the bigger offices. If it was another small office I would make it balance out in the long run.

Not every week, though, right? They always wanted us to keep track of the fractions & make it come out to match the actual hours.

Going down to Philly to do interviews all week this week. Nice change of pace and some kick butt mileage money. Gives my clerks more hours, and the hours I use can be transferred to the district which will help me bank some budgeted hours now so I can use them in December.

My one 6 hour RMPO got budgeted more hours than my APO did by about 90 hours, it was overbudgeted last year too. I am not going to say anything, especially since it will help my NPA score. APO got budgeted an average of 74 hours a week, which takes into account the 15 hours a week that I do, the other RMPO was budgeted perfectly for 6 1/2 hours a day.

One thing I like about lending clerks out is that I can benefit from rounding. If a clerk works 6 1/2 hours in one week at another office, I can transfer 7.

Maybe,.....the APO OIC said it was so I would not have to work Sunday when we start doing Sunday Amazon at the APO.

I got a surprise today......via email from the District.
I will be getting a new PSE in my office ????
Not sure what this means for my future with the US Postal Service.
I am confused.

I received a phone call at work today from a company that keeps track of postage meter activity for the USPS.
Me..... trying to clearly understand the English.....I figured out this was not for my finance number.

The wind from the current hurricane resulted in the rope on my flag pole to break today and the American flag was on the power lines.
A customer brought the flag into the post office before I got there and told me about it.
I made the call to get it fixed.

It is a great thing to get new items from an office that does not need them.....Good going Lenny :)

I did FDB updates for APO OIC today.

I rented a new customer a p o box yesterday in my RMPO.

We had those placards too for our district. Our first class letters and flats went to your plant Saturday.

Went down to do carrier interviews these past couple of days, made for a nice change of pace. While I was there I took a walk of the old plant basement and there was tons of old stuff down there-collection boxes, fixtures, you name it. I went home with a carful of stuff. I might go back tomorrow to grab a few more things.

We had special "pope visit" placards to use at work this past week.

Good for you!
I used to find that if I mentioned Express Mail, people would sometimes use it. Not always of course, but I felt like I had to give them the opportunity to at least know it exists.

I'm still a PSE in my 4 hr office... and it is ok.

I sold 6 P Express in the past week :)....I'm proud of that.......will check on the delivery of each one myself at work.

Just got word that each APO office will be delivering their own Amazon parcels on Sundays. I might have to help in office.
