For me it wouldn't even be so much the revenue, but a combination of a lost community identity and much less workload.

Good thing that the borough and USPS are in line with the box rentals. Otherwise, that would be lost revenue. Glad to hear you are staying under the radar.

At the moment everything is running smooth at my offices, no complaints here. My clerk is back working a few hours in the morning about 3 days a week plus Saturdays. The one thing I do miss is the overtime $$. My office has been off the radar for just about everything recently, seems like my poom likes to go around and take turns with each office by ripping into them. I am sure it will be my turn at some point. Carrier offices seem to be hit hard of course, one reason I don't want a carrier office if I don't have to. Revenue is way up, hours used are in line with SOV, scanning is perfect, and the finances are in order so there shouldn't be much to complain about.

The big headache that I have had recently is a handful of customers are in an uproar about paying for their boxes. The borough makes the customers rent boxes here because the names and number ranges of the big streets here match the ones in the town that would be doing the delivery (Main and Broad streets). The borough does not want to change them due to community identity issues. Fortunately, the borough and the PO are on the same page with this which is a good thing for me. I had the borough manager type up a letter re-emphasizing their stand, and I copied a letter from a former DM stating the PO's stand. It seems to have calmed the masses.

Lenny, how is it going with you? Clerk is back now right? AP doing you right? I am surprisingly doing well in our office. Old PM came back with a better attitude (sadly as they used him for all they could get then sent him back). Anyway he is back to the nice guy he was when I first met him. We lost our other clerk (she transferred out/although she hasn't been in our office for about 9 months due to workmans comp) PM and I work well together now. I guess you could say we are staying under the radar. I know things will change . . . but for NOW, it's rather nice to go to work again.
No game playing with my hours or someone refusing to pay me and am actually working 5 days a week. I've worked 6 days for years, so I'm feeling slightly human again, ha,ha.

Most offices seem to have a few boxes like that. I don't know of any that involved drug dealing, but I have rented a few to contractors who I could tell were shady, and a few who only got them to have their hospital bills sent to which would never get paid.

This stuff goes on with USPS also. It doesn't have to be drugs. A consumer files a complaint with the USPS over a medical device, the postal inspectors get involved and an investigation is made. The business continues mailing a product that is a scam. The USPS receives funds for renting PO box address, for the large mail outs, and receives revenue for the large number of returns.
How many PO boxes do you think are rented for the use of illegal aliens? or the transfer of drugs within the US? Where there is money, there is a blind eye. (sad but true)

I had a car of new customers pull in at the post office yesterday as I was leaving. They asked me what time I will open tomorrow. I will see them today :)

It's vegetable season in the Garden State. I have received fresh vegetables from a few of my customers.

I will be helping out in another RMPO this week.

I have been so busy at the window lately and that is a good thing.
The customers appreciate me.
I had do an emergency stock order today and I really need to order some supplies.

Well . . . I'm just saying what I have to remind myself on occasion. With 18 OIC/PM's coming through the office you have good and you have bad. Sometimes I purely hated going to work from the games played. Knock on wood, the PM (in place now) that came back from several assignments, got severely humbled and is back with a better prospective.
All of us on this board have stories of being challenged with USPS. We are a warm body filling a position that USPS has no other intent then to fill our positions with lower paying, no benefit employees. Take the good, when it's good and endure when it's not. And by the way . . . please remind me of this when things get bad, as it will eventually cycle to the bad again.
Another note: I am seeing long time PM's in large offices on down feeling uneasy with the internal atmosphere with USPS. Everyone is in CYA mode, including POOMs and certainly District. I suspect some more shaking of the tree with national arbitrations being resolved, new contracts and this mix of closures.
FWD you hang in there.

/m13120 Well said, SouthernClerk.

Especially in regard to FWD. In the time we have been on here, we have come to know her & know her worth & value to the USPS.

Too much craziness within USPS. Pick your battles. More important you get paid correctly, then who is actually inputting the info. Never let someone else define who you are, or in other words . . . just because the APO PM is not letting you put your own time in doesn't make you less of a person. YOU know your value. If they don't . . . well?, its their misfortune.

My APO PM has the new PSEs from his other offices enter my office PMR time each week.
It doesn't seem right. The new PSEs were hired just a few months ago.
I should be able to enter my own time.....heck, I have been with the USPS at least 20 years.

There is a minimum of $50 to send back. One of the good things about being in a manual office is that you can use the old stuff to wallpaper packages. I went about 4 years in between doing destructions because of that. Not quite as easy in a larger office.

They did say not to open the packets, but when you got 50 of them just sitting there they tend to tie up a lot of good space. As far as I know, the customer purchased them and used it themselves *wink wink*
