/m56391 They can add a new part of your job. Elderly Assistant. Help them in and out of bed, heat up food, change bedpans ect. The Post office will be reimbursed from Medicare, Medicaid.

Hell, I even had a different combo in my first post /m56390 than I did in /m56393. It's ok though, many of your posts have caused my brain to hurt. ; )

I am such an true senior now. I knew smithers had it wrong, but I kept trying to accept it and blame my brain for getting it wrong - then . . . thanks egark.

Ha! I always got that backwards. I keep seeing other acronyms used here and figured people forgot what they were actually called.

So we deliver to the monster CBU's, put parcels in the few available parcel lockers, then run around the neighborhood delivering the rest of the parcels
and accountables. Sounds like the biggest clusterf**k yet. Missing keys, broken
locks, thieves, and inconvenient, unprotected locations. Can't wait for the CBU's on my hood route to be installed. They won't make it a year before needing replacement. All involved need to be ashamed.

/m56388 - 9 - 90: They'll find a way to make it HARD for City Carriers. No way in HELL, are they going to make your job easier. If you are no longer walking with a 30-lb. satchel all day (which I did, for the majority of my career, out of choice), they'll give you so many deliveries you will be Agog. 1,100 deliveries today is a Monster Route. Centralized Delivery, with dozens of Point of delivery, get ready for 10,000 deliveries. Oh - and DOIS says you have Undertime. Anyone thinks Carriers will ever have it easy, either 1) Never worked for USPS, or 2) Was never a Carrier or 3) Is living in La La Land.

/m56390 I do think Centralized Delivery will be tried in some areas. Pilot Programs. I thought they were going to do it over 30 years ago, and I am amazed it's not already commonplace. Pretty much the same configuration: NBUs. But FAR MORE NBUs, like 20 or 30 in one spot, rather than 2 or 3. It will happen. Whether it works out or not, is another matter. You can be SURE, that all those Delivery Points will be in FULLY SUNNY locations, no overheads to keep the rain off you, and facing INTO the sun all day. All the better, to STREET OBSERVE YOU from a distance. That's the Postal Management Way.

Seriously doubt centralized delivery will ever happen with the way they're breaking into cluster boxes/NCBDU's or robbing carriers for their arrow keys. Not to mention the old folks would put up a helluva fight. They already freak out if you suggest changing delivery from a box on their house to curbside delivery.

Maybe they will make these walking routes so easy none of us will want to retire.

If we go to centralized delivery, routes will shrink in street times. My route would take 3/4 the time. The walking routes in our office would be half the time. Route additions would be more than likely nation wide. Just a dash of wishful thinking for the early retirement board.
