The only time I ever met a Postal Inspector in almost 40 years was when I was a steward for the NPU (APWU - I clerked for 10 years), and we were trying to sell advertising for some union magazine. Closed the window and there was a knock on the door. I answered the door and there stood a PI. I asked if I could help him and he said he was looking for (my Name), I almost shit a gold brick. Nothing ever came of that. Another time I was OIC in a very small office and I was visited by an agent of the CIA about an address in the city.

I was never trained to do that-throwing loose money, gift cards or stamps and such around. Even IF that was done, just handle it properly. Real easy, real simple. It ain't your stuff.

 I NEVER saw anything run across the workroom floor that would have been worth me losing my job. Not everyone felt that way which is why I was gainfully employed for many years.

You should be able to mail a gold bar, wrapped in celephane and it should make it to the delivery address intact.

I might believe 400.00 was supposed to be planted.

if you find 200.00 in a hamper you don't believe it was planted?

I guess I need a better definition of "plant stuff" before I comment. Do we routinely test the integrity of our employees without any prior knowledge of wrongdoing? Yes. We do, or did. I have been away from internal crimes (employee) for quite a while.

No I don't. Well I know I never did. With around 2000 PIs in their heyday, I'm guessing there may have been a rogue or two but there were protections against that. The union and the US Attorney to name a few.

Stew-you ran rings around the PIs by going against a boss? Sounds like apple to oranges to me.

You found $500 in stamps in your safe? Are you saying some PI broke into your safe and planted them? Really? For what reason? In all my years, in all the training I took and all the training I put on I never heard of such a thing. You took the trouble to mail them to dead letter when you simply could have turned them into the manager with a witness or two.

I was hoping you had better stories than outsmarting a boss and turning in some stamps.

/m31358 Dano, I am stepping back into the 21st century. Back when Hawaii 50 went off they showed a clip of Jack Lord saying "Better Yet Dano" in about 20 different episodes.

/m31353 DNC. Now you can get Roku so you can leave the fish tank on when nothing is on tv. Our cats insist on it. Tv is strapped firmly to the shelf.

Par for PO:
        BURLINGTON — An Upper Valley postmaster acted in “extreme bad faith” in overseeing a letter carrier from North Pomfret, including falsely accusing him of repeatedly striking her in the head with a five-pound scanner, a federal judge ruled earlier this month.

U.S. Court of Federal Claims Senior Judge Loren A. Smith also awarded Brian Bowles, who was acquitted of a criminal charge in 2013, more than $72,000 in damages for wrongful termination by the United States Postal Service and sent a copy of his decision to federal prosecutors.

X -stew / same thing happened to me. I went over the managers and postmasters head. Called the crisis line 3 or four times in a 12 month. Even called Washington DC to postal governor. Stated my problem with 12 months of data. Make a long story short somebody in management put drugs in my postal vehicle. Manager retired five years early, I was given an apology and $10,000 cash. I never trusted management further than I could throw them. One of the happiest days of my life was retirement day.

One of the biggest drawbacks to Nalcrest was the lack of cable and high speed internet. Spectrum is now installing fiber optic cable so we will step into the 21st Century on Sept. 24th.

/m31352 X, what kind of safe are you talking about?

Went against a boss. He got moved 3 states, I stayed.

Weeks later, found $500 worth of stamps in my safe I didn't want, hadn't ordered. Knew it was a trap. How stupid did they think I was? Was gonna just toss them in dumpster but figured they'd just do it again and claim I took them. Mailing them to stamp supply office was an option but was in the same district, and maybe open to manipulation.

So I waited till weekend, sent them via registered mail to dead letter in Atlanta. Took receipt home. Knew by Monday they'd be a paper trail from my office to NYC, and on to Atlanta. Problem solved.
