I have to consider myself lucky that I don't usually get difficult customers but today I did. What bugs me most is the comparison made to another larger office. The problem? She wanted to mail a package, in bubble wrap that had in its contents a very inflexible item and she wanted it to be mailed as a letter. The other office does it ALL the time, she said over and over again. I pointed out to her the thickness gauge to show it would not go as a letter, I tried to explain about the unevenness and inflexibility . . . and the discussion went down hill from there. She said she would mail it somewhere else, I handed her the package. She changed her mind and decided to mail with all along telling me how I was ripping her off, that it was highway robbery, etc. etc.
Hindsight, I wish I had sold her a stamp, accepted the package and then stamped it postage due. But no, I wanted to educate the public??? sad thing is we should be educating this other office, as I really don't doubt she was telling the truth, she probably has been mailing it like a letter.

I emailed my APO OIC my form 17 for stock today.
It took me awhile to find the stock I wanted and to enter all of it on the form 17.
SFS was so much easier and faster too.
I would receive my stock in 2-3 days from SFS.
If the APO office is just as fast I should receive my stock in time for the rate increases.

A two day week end will be nice.

If he is a real hoarder, he will be ticked off because they seem to have an emotional attachment to their stuff.

I had a little bit of tendency that way & I would have been grateful if someone would have come in and got rid of things.

Spending this week ripping apart my RMPO. The guy that is there is a hoarder, and he is going out on detail to roll out RSS for our district. That office is like a huge box warehouse. Everywhere you go, boxes-boxes everywhere. No exaggeration-there were a couple of hundred empty grocery bags, I filled 3 big trashbags full of garbage-not counting the loose stuff, dozens of those black plastic innards for the POS receipt rolls, hundreds of used tray tags (a half tub full), and several cases of Priority boxes. I filled my car twice to it's limits with cardboard. Also got rid of some old fixtures that were taking up space. A very busy week for me.

He is going to be a little bit ticked off at me when comes back for a few days next week, but oh well!

Thank you :)

I had over 250 WIR today at my little 4 hour office.
Busy at the window most of the time.
I had no time to enter the stock received into the e1412. I will catch up on todays e1412 tomorrow.

The APO office wants me to learn the sceam?......you know, all the streets that belong to each route.....so I can help sort flats......when someone wants a a day off is what I was told.

I sort parcels with the finger scanner, box some of the PO DPS mail, help out with the parcels and do some reports at the APO.

I received my stock today :)......now the APO OIC wants me to email him the Form 17 instead of handing him the Form 17.
The slow down was not on my end but.... ok....I will email him the Form 17 from now on.

Riksny - no doubt you could have done the district mgr's job. It probably was a nicer job back then. It does not seem that any position is secure any longer. . . . but agree with you, no thanks.

FWD - shame you cannot get stamps in a timely manner. We had an OIC once that could not grasp the concept of ordering stamps. We were constantly out of rolls and the favored flag stamps. I felt so embarrass telling customers we didn't have stamps.

We swapped over to the RSS on POS. Too many screens and slow. No calibration for touch screen and so sometimes you have to hit the same button over and over again.

I will tell you a funny story. I was at a Career Awareness Conference (remember those? ) probably around 1991, give or take a couple of years. I was a PTF clerk at the time. I was standing in the back of a room, talking to a very nicely dressed woman about this-and-that postal things. I asked her where she was from, and she named the district. "Oh, I'm from Albany District. And what do you do in XXX District?" "I'm the District Manager." And I tried to say something intelligent, like, that's a lot of responsibility. And she smiled and said, "You could do it." NO THANKS! (whispered silently to myself) :)

You don't want to be a 204b. That is the position where you get crapped on in every direction.

I think that's why it takes so long to get your order: the APO isn't putting it in promptly. Another death blow to the small offices: can't get stock.
