/m13175 As of this week I have to add a "green" placard to my outgoing hamper that already has the 99 placard on it.

We did the red and green placards at the holiday season last year for outgoing first class letter tubs. It is for possible early mail dispatch times..... for use by the plant.

If we don't have the hamper or equipment to green/red placard then we have to add a green/red placard to every outgoing tub and parcel.

Lucky you still have the old ones. It's a wonder they didn't say "you have new scanners now so return the old ones." :)

If you hadn't noticed. NAPUS has stated they've been advised that SOV staffing numbers have changed in L18 offices. I haven't looked as of yet. It will be interesting to see corrected numbers if any.

FWD - what placards are ya'll using? . . . red?green?

The finger scanner program is not reliable. Half the time the system is not working and we are scanning arrival with old scanner.

We started using the red and green placards yesterday.

Really. I will have to check into that. The flat rate Priority prices increased.

The Farm Market stamps are going fast in my office.....and I ordered 500 of them.

I noticed that there are some Priority prices that are almost $2 cheaper than standard for the same weight and destination. Crazy....

No Pitney Bowes updates available on the Postage Meter today.......so I will have to try again on Monday.
But really .....why would they update the meter in advance of the price increase anyway ?

I'm looking for my last stamp order with the old eBuy2 system......it might arrive at my office tomorrow and I hope so because I am out of stamped envelopes and 70 cent stamps.....and I have customers waiting on these.

When I got my first job at the PO, as a PTF clerk in a level 13, it was before we had the contract cleaners, so cleaning was part of my job. I used to get annoyed when I was mopping the lobby (only about 5 feet square, not really a terrible job) and the customers would say that to me, "You can come over to my house and do that when you get done here." Grrr.... But my other two jobs at the time only paid minimum wage, $3.65 an hour. And the PO paid $8.04 an hour. So I started grinning and saying, "Pay me what they do here, and I will!"

Did an order last Wednesday on the new SFS system, and just like all the other times that we switched ordering systems there is a huge delay in getting my stuff. Ordered 5 things, and I only had one of them 8 days later. This was why I loaded up on my previous order via ebuy, since I foresaw this happening. The only thing I an screwed on at the moment are PC stamps.

Today was quite a change of pace from the last 2 days, much slower but it allowed me to get some stuff done. I refinished my lobby floor on Sunday night, and today I did the workroom floor. Makes quite a difference when it is nice and shiny. I lost count of how many customers that said to me "You can come to my house when you are done..." If I only had a nickel for every time I heard that...*rolling eyes*

Today all of the manual offices here were emailed that...... we better not forget to update our PB postage meter....so....I set the machine to update and this is the message I got...."no updates available".
Only a few days left to get the updated prices.
I will try again tomorrow....after the window closes because sometimes the updates take a very long time.

Those are great sales Lenny......Are you ready for the new ordering process and the price changes ?

I enjoy helping out the elderly and the special needs customers in my community.

With the extra 4 hours a day from not working I have been spending more time at the beach and more time working around the house.

A little less than half of the $1500 transaction came in this morning, with the rest to follow either tomorrow or Friday. 125 flat rate envelopes, and since they were a little over a pound I had to run them all through the POS. I rang up 125 $5.60 stamps, had my clerk put them on, then I scanned them through the POS and put a zero PVI on them. $700 for that, which was right after a lady came in for 50 books of stamps-another $490. $1200 WIR by 9am sets the day off on a nice pace and Back to back $1700 days is getting my September off to a great start (not counting click n ships).

August was the first month in over a year in which I did not beat the same month last year, but by only $200. Last year I had a huge $2200 transaction which skewed the numbers. Looking forward to a $1500 transaction later this week :) (not related to the one from last year).

Crazy busy today, did not even close the window for lunch. Abnormally high amount of manual letters not run on DPS these past couple of weeks.

The finger scanners must have been the reason for typing in the addresses on the POS.

/m13162 "The future for all of us is looking less and less positive."
I agree.

Not caring much for the finger scanner. Its only used for "arrival" scans. And so you still use the other scanner for other scans (attempt,fwd,deliver,etc)
To me you have to slow down to make sure it scanned good, so I find myself waiting on the computer to call out the route number before I move on to the next package.
It's scary as it is so clear, the USPS has plans to have anyone sort through packaging. They can sort and line out the delivery pattern. The future for all of us is looking less and less positive.
