Arkansas Marine- Thank you for your service. I always just hang my uniforms up right after drying. Former Army, maybe that's why I hate ironing. LOL
 As for dumb--s customers leaving messages, learned over many years to ignore them but yes I understand how you feel.

ArkansasMarine, a customer (towards the end of my career) ignorantly and rudely left me a horrible note and the RAGE I could not shake off is one of the reasons why I retired early and slashed my pension. I cannot tell you the revenge desires I entertained and became obsessed with - just from one jerk who didn't even know the rules about vacant homes . . . I still may verbally do something about it in person. But, probably not because I think the guy ended up with a miserable life anyway.

/m6565 What really bothers people is not so much that they got someone else's mail, but that it shows there is a possibility that someone else might get their mail.

/m6566 I always thought the carriers looked good in a tie, but the only time anyone ever wore one was in arbitrations.

I really wish I could. I don't want the other Carriers to haggle me, in addition I also want cohesion between all of us. the best way so far to achieve that is to follow the veteran Carriers who have paved the way for CCA's, and don't go in trying to change things up or look out of place when I'm only a rookie with a lot of motivation. They know (or at least I hope they do) that I'm passionate about my career and I want to promote us in the best form possible. Ole timers that receive their mail every day still trust and appreciate the Carriers, I'd like to continue that trust and uphold the traditions the very best that I can I suppose

this happened to me the other day. i'll never forget it. I opened up the mailbox, and there was a note pinned to a piece of mail. It read, and i quote "wrong address stupid! this is Boston Pl. not Boston Ave!" about 3 seconds after reading it, i guarantee you could have poured cold water on my head and it would've sizzled. it still makes me twitch when i think about it. i agree that it is my fault for delivering mail to the wrong address (one street over) on 2-3 occasions, but the nerve of some people to just outright call someone stupid without knowing who they're talking to. Not that I am intimidating, but I'm 260 lbs, 6'-7", and U.S. Marine, still in fairly good shape and health lol!!. Its because of our forefathers, brothers and sisters and I who fought, sweat, and bled, that they even have a pot to...well you get the idea. just venting i guess. man if i could. any other stories like this? and how do you deal with the civvies who do this type stuff? i wanted to knife-hand them right in the carotid so bad! :-O look up the Marine Corps knife hand on your fav video hosting site if you're not sure what a Knife Hand is.

alaska mailman- yes i do iron my uniforms, after washing them every night. i iron them the next morning before going to work. i also shine my shoes and spit-shine my belt. it's the Marine in me i guess, but pride in my uniform (any uniform) is something i really take to heart. I was creasing my shorts until I took a look at them in the mirror, It really looks weird to have creased shorts, therefore I cannot WAIT, until fall/winter arrives to pull out the trousers!!

/m6561 You may find your answers from the M-01833.
May CCAs carry over leave from one appointment to another?
No. Currently any accrued annual leave is paid out at the end of a 360-day term.
However, the national parties will explore appropriate options regarding current
policies for paying terminal leave to CCAs.

Hello. For the 5 day break in service, when and how is the accrued annual leave to be paid out? On the last day of service or sometime after? Thank you.

lowlycca- Did you admit to saying 'up your ass ' to the customer? Never admit to anything, make them prove it

I had a PDI this morning about the incident. Looks like I am going to get a suspension. My union steward said don't worry, we will grieve it.

If night premium starts at 6pm and start time is 8am, should the night premium and penalty overtime match on a paycheck? 8a-6p is 10 hours or does it not include the 30 minute meal time? The CCA rights and benefits page does not specify.

I was delivering a walking relay and had just delivered mail to a house. I was walking across the yard to the next house, when I heard a man say hey. I stopped, turned and said yes sir?

The man asked me if I had a note that instructed me to make sure to close the lid of his mailbox? I responded by saying no sir I don't. Did I leave it open? I'm sorry about that.

The man then said, in a very condescending and hateful manner, (I am paraphrasing) that if he wanted to have an open mailbox he would not have bought one with a lid. They have these wonderful things called hinges, that allow the box lid to open and close.

At this point I pointed at the man and said "You don't need to talk to me like that."

He responded by saying don't you point the finger at me!

I turned to walk away and said up your ass.

He yelled back and said what did you say to me?

I repeated up your ass and walked away.

As I got to the next house he yelled and said i want you to come say that to me when you are sitting home without a job.

I deeply regret the loss of my temper and know that I was completely wrong in my response. My GM wants to talk to me tomorrow morning as I was off today.

My question is how much trouble has my stupidity cost me?

ArkansasMarine, I ironed my uniforms and I wish I had tried soaking them in powdered Tide as advised on here.
