Yes, every few years I would get my nose rubbed in it pretty well. Oops, sorry.

Have you ever had one of those days when you realize that you are not always excellent/perfect in the work you do ? Ugh!

Stock reevaluation was done without a hitch in e1412.
I will have to confess.....I didn't even look at the instructions....just knew how to do it.

Our offices have several deadlines for reports but the APO office has to do most of them so I am holding tight until I receive instructions otherwise.....Well, I did help out and do a few of them but not all.

Have any new stamps been released in the past month or two ?

I will go in early tomorrow to count stock and do the one told me to but it is the only way I can get it done in time......I will be claiming the extra time.

Time......time....., I have at least a dozen p o box locks to change and no time to do it.
I have already received alerts that the po box audits are past due.......but the real deadline for our District is June 1st. I will have no choice but to come in early at some point to get the lock changes done......and the audits.
4.5 hour work days gives me no time for extras.......although I did complete one mandatory LMS training class and an off catalog eBuy 2 request recently......
So many more of these to do and so little time.

I need to order supplies too......and just maybe I can get current stamps from the APO this month.

Hello Lenny, So Good to see you here :)
I have to renew my cleaning contract.I hope it goes smoothly.

The District here has a contest for the full time offices to see who has the best looking P O and lobby......I think my friend that just placed a 55 gallon fish tank in his lobby should be the winner.......because he is always going above and beyond his duties..... all for the USPS.

Yes, I keep a political mail log here in the RMPO and I always have......but, I am beginning to wonder if this is just another one of those mass email things that only apply to the larger offices.

Sounds like you are truly doing the work to keep your offices viable. Wish we had someone that would stay long enough to want to fix the office. Ceiling falling down, AC can't keep up during summer months, floor tile missing and coming up.
Its what you get with 18 bosses in 18 years, no one stays with intent to stay.

Present PM pretty upset recently as he was OIC of two larger offices past few years and had high hopes of getting PM position. After three postings for the PM position, they filled it with a PM out of state from a smaller office then our L18. For staff, nothing worst then a PM that wants to leave then a PM that wants to leave and can't.

We're past our political mailings for now. Yes we have logs? do we use them? no.

So happy to hear all is well with you.

Not much going on here recently, it's been pretty quiet. Went out and did the rural count the past 2 weeks, nice change of pace. Business has been flat at my offices this year, but at least it isn't dropping. The one RMPO took quite a hit when it went to 6 hours.

Cleaning contracts around here got cancelled, and 4 custodian hours have been added to our budgets. This was done to close the gap between earned hours and the numbers of hours we have to use to stay at our 15/week. Speaking of cleaning, I was able to get a small floor scrubber off the excess items catalog. Can't wait until it arrives.

Next maintenance project is to get my APO painted, looks like it has been quite a few years since it has been done.

Getting ready for the political mail deluge. Do you guys have to fill out logs and all that fun stuff for the political mail?

We have a lot of training, at least four, of LMS training to do with deadlines as early as as the end of this month. Will have to find time to squeeze this in at some point or I will loose access to a few required duties.

Time to do the Bulk Funding in eBuy2 for the Lawn looks like the Snow 2016 season is over.

One more thing.....P.Express mail sales and post office postage meter sales have been outstanding for the past two months :)

/m13694 You were right RIKSNY. Thank you.

I have been working on a p o box to see if the second applicant qualifies for an eBox (2 businesses in one building with no RT delivery).

I have 11 p o box locks to change and then the annual WebBats Audits to do before the end of this month. I will have to go into work early for awhile to have enough time to complete all of this.

/m13693 PS4805 Maintenance Work Order Request?
FWDPerson was signed in when posted

The recent storm damaged the outside of the office roof and I had to call the emergency number to get the work order started.

I need new lights in part of the office.....that can not be done with the emergency has to be done by filling out some form for local maintenance work by the district.
Anyone know the form number ?

Only had a F4 in our office w-a-a-y back when I was a newbie, so am curious are the F4's performed with a team or are you as an individual performing the audit? How long is the process? one day, two days, etc.

Heavy rumor that they were going to make a few L18's RMPO's very soon, seems to be at a hault. Domino effect as they move a series of PM's back to their offices. Lots of PM's rather disappointed as rumor was so heavy. My thoughts are if it isn't done now, it doesn't mean it won't be happening later . . . say this fall.

They F4's were mainly for the offices that were raising red flags in their hour usage and sloppy function transfers. The good thing about the interviewing and F4's is that my hours doing them get transferred to the district, and I can use less than my budgeted hours in October and November. In a way I "banked" those hours so I can use them in December.

The level 18's around here got budgeted about 74 hours a week to factor in the PM 15 hour rule. Also the cleaning contracts are getting canceled which adds about 4 hours a week. So that brings it up to 78 hours a week for my office.

The thing that most PMs don't realize is that maintenance repairs do not fall under their budget, it comes under the district's. So why not take your share?

Wow, Lenny is still alive!! Good to hear that you are doing well, although busy. Sounds good that you are doing interviews and getting involved with F4's. All that can help you in the future, glad to hear.

Getting your offices repaired is great too. From my experience, we don't keep anyone long enough to have anyone take ownership in the office. Everyone seems to show up with one foot out the door, prepared to leave as soon as they can. Not that higher ups care, but when I was OIC our revenue increased, when another OIC/PM came in, revenue went down. I'm not patting myself on the back as I didn't do anything extra other then make sure we had supplies and stamps . . . but rather it is the OIC/PM that truly has no intention of staying and is just waiting for the exit door to open. Can't make revenue if you don't have the supplies.

Keep in touch. Would love to hear how your F4's are going. Any trends?
