/m58241 A Goober sees the Light (damn near walks into it), then changes his tune - and gets attacked by other Goobers for it. Life's a Bitch ain't it buddy....he'll probably still vote for Trump....

I do not know if they still do, but back in my day PMG's had protection details to protect the PMG when he traveled. I got selected and went to Executive Protection Training. That was a lot of fun. I like the evasive driving part the best. Fortunately Marvin never came to Houston. I heard he was a very difficult man to be around.

/m58232 "Very Dangerous"?? How so? I've only offered up my opinion of the Postal Service's long-held response, to the outcome of Carvin' Marvin's early out. It fell FAR short of achieving its stated Goals. In fact, it COST the P.O. Dearly, as most of the Dead Wood (whom Runyon wanted to get rid of) stuck around, while the Carriers who had been doing their jobs - Boogied. Much to their own detriment, as most of us know - but that is another matter. Offer another EO w/incentive today - the same thing would happen.

/m58232 The only "Early Out" you might get, will be a Removal on Trumped-Up charges. Pun fully intended. BTW: Trump hates you, and hates the Post Office. Did you see your new PMG? Tell me I'm wrong. Go ahead.

/m58234 Muffin,

At least the PO was smart enough to get rid of you. Just like the military did.

I'm with you Danno, climbed 8 slots in an office of 23 routes at the time. Was a big difference in bidding and etc. Was also having our 1st child and overtime went through the roof so yes thank you Carvin Marvin Runyon.

Boss, Its very dangerous to say something will not happen, "EVER AGAIN". You told us the GOP wouldn't win the POTUS chair for FIFTY years. Guess what happened next election?

Early out will happen again, it's just a matter of when. If the new PMG has his way, it could come much sooner than you think. I think this is the best chance for an early out for carriers I've seen in a long time. Serious reforms are likely coming.

Living a hand-to-mouth existence on the Slabs in the Sonoran desert in an old used RV might sound like Fun to some, but I'm sure it gets Old, pretty quick. Not what I would have wanted, after sacrificing 25-30 years of my life working for the P.O.

/m58226 Will Munny's Post /m58227 is totally correct. I witnessed that play out, myself. Runyon's efforts did not pay off, the way they were intended to. In fact, it could be argued that as a direct result of Runyon's EO, any Early Out with Incentives for Carriers, will NEVER be offered again - EVER.

82%'s post is correct, also. I had a couple friends who were Senior to me who took the money & ran. They were SO miserable at the job, they felt forced to. One guy was CSRS, divorced, paying Alimony, etc. - he was stuck living on a paltry $1100.00/mo., when the smoke cleared. Had to sell his house and live out of an RV for the rest of his life. He HAD to...it wasn't a Choice. Not really an enviable fate.

I went out to a small office for what I don't remember, but what I do remember was the postmaster telling me he lost 7 of his 11 carriers. The sad part of that legal action Will is referring to was that many of the takers of the early out could not live on the reduced money. Many in small towns could not find work to supplement the loss of pay. That what happens when you live off the OT money. So what does any union member worth his salt do? They sue. There was one lucky postmaster who had just been issued a LOR after I submitted an Investigative Memorandum to the DM. He took his money and ran.
