Well, it's back to work at the RMPO today.
I heard I have a few Amazon days this week at the APO.

Thanks FWD. Good to hear you have your sis's coming for a visit. Enjoy your leave and their visit. Hard to imagine you have never taken a week off. I never have taken all my leave in one year, but certainly took a week off. With getting the NTFT, I basically got an additional 3 weeks AL as I can't take 40hr/wk now, can only take 30hr/wk. So I'm definitely taking some leave this year.

Congrats. on your promotion SouthernClerk. Good news:)

I will be helping out most mornings this week at the APO doing the Amazon and morning reports etc. before going to my RMPO.

Last week I put in for the week of the 4th off. I have never taken a week off before.
APO OIC said he put my copy of the leave slip in the mail but I have not received it yet.
My sisters from Alabama will be visiting me :)

Been a couple of months since posting, just thought I would drop in and say hi. Hope everyone doing okay.
Managed to get my PTF position to NTFT with mgmt. hiring an additional PTF in our office. I lost some hours but not nearly as much as I would had, had I not maximized to NTFT. And added bonus is a set schedule that I love.
There is an increase in using clerks as OIC's again. They don't seem to be filling PM positions. Highly suspect our area will see a change in office reporting config. in coming fiscal year.
And geez, as ya'll know we scan EVERYTHING now it seems. Walk to the right? scan. Walk to the left? scan. Did you go to the bathroom? scan . . . well, okay not that bad YET.

This week I am helping out at the APO before I go to work at my RMPO.
The extra hours are good.

At the APO I do the APOs morning reports and then process the Amazon parcels and distribute the box section letter mail and parcels.

The carriers and clerks are here at the APO about a half hour later when I open the the p o box lobby.

I received a phone call at work yesterday. A man wanted to tell me all about the great benefits I had available to me as a postal employee.......TSP etc....I tried to explain that I didn't qualify for a thing.

Well, finally I said ok and agreed to meet with the lady he was sending over today.

Ah. Nothing new. "Part time" USPS employees are not entitled to anything.

I set up my Bulk Funding for Grass Cutting/Lawn Maintenance work and it was approved.

So much WebBATS work and LMS training to do and the deadlines are so close. I don't know if I can do it.

APO office OIC dropped off a tub of Hazmat stuff for the office this week......I think I already have most of it posted in the office.

I received an email today that said.....All post offices are now "Primer" offices ?......anyone know what that is about ?

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?
