Work was good. All of the offices around here are receiving more parcels and more outgoing express.

I will be working in 3 of my APO offices tomorrow.
As a PSE.
I have to learn to let them all work things out in these offices instead of me always being there for them all.

All office employees but me get paid for vacation time so they are all taking 2 weeks paid vacation a piece....now I see why the APO OIC wanted to know when we wanted off.....his 2 weeks paid vacation are now....one NTFT just took her 2 weeks and the other employees will be next.

lol.....I took one day.....I got no pay. I feel like Charley Brown...with my over 20 yrs experience with the USPS.....but, at least I like the work I do......some of these new employees.....even with the paid vacation time are miserable every day they work.....I don't get it.

Good points RIKSNY.

Yesterday our area received an email all about international mail..... with a newsletter about helping international mail customers and several links to sites for international mail information and prices :)
I just had time to glance at the email yesterday but I saved it...... and the links in my favorites.

Well, you can't get tracking for PMI Flat Rate Envelopes or Small Flat Rate Boxes, so that kind of limits it.

What is the most inexpensive way to send an international letter....with tracking ?

Always nice to get a gift from a customer. I received Chinese cucumbers to try and a few seeds to grow my own the other day.
We just got new printer for the RSS. I tend to be so critical of things of late, I have to admit I like this change. Printer prints out PVI label and tracking number. Your choice, either separately for packages that don't have much room or in one large piece. Very nice. And I so-o-o don't miss scanning the separate confirmation labels.

Retail System Software(RSS) That is what one of Lenny's clerks is working on, he mentioned.
It is a full upgrade to the software on POS.
It will allow numerous POS stations that were not on the same wavelength to now be on the same playing field. My take? it is a push to allow Office Depot/Staples to be on the same accounting system as kiosks, offices, etc. are using. Also said to be used out of country as we go "global".

Again, this is just my humble opinion, but it has dumb downed the software questions so much that someone off the street could read the questions and process a package. No prior knowledge needed so to speak. The problem is it is majorly slow. Touch screen has no calibration and so between not being sure if the touch screen got your selection and having to wait 4-5 seconds between each selection it is mind numbing slow.
You can't rush through, if you wanted and it has very limited back up selections.
So if customer changes mind and wants insurance, you have to practically start all over again with address info, etc.
I don't know of a clerk in our area that likes it. But then? they didn't ask us. Slows window down considerably.

Oh, I checked the intranet first for the express and it was scanned at the District on Saturday night but no other scans were showing at that time.

One of my customers was expecting an Express mail piece to be delivered today.
It was not in the office when I got to work.
I sent out an email to my 080-084 area....200 something emails.
I received a reply back from the office that had it.
5 post offices were involved doing what we could to get that Express mail piece home and delivered.
Now that.......was a "Team" effort.
Someone from IOP sent me a Thank you email :)

Found an Express piece in a supposedly empty sack that was mailed out on December 26th. Neither the to nor from addresses were from my office. Ouch!
