Believe it or not, you are allowed as many "comfort stops" as you need. Most people read that as going to the bathroom. But if you're sweating uncontrollably (or worse, not sweating all all. THEN you have real trouble) you can get some shade, wipe off, drink, use some of your drinking water to wash your face, etc. Put some cold water on your neck as well; you'll be amazed how that cools you. You'll feel it going right into your heart.

I don't get these schmucks that feel the need to harass carriers. I'm not going to work any faster just to get you a bonus.


Another way of doing it is to pour cold water or put ice on the inside of your wrist on the veins. Try it, it cools off your blood immediately.


What the hell do you know about being on a route, “postmaster”?


Oviously you know nothing about this topic.



Obviously you know what postmaster d**k tastes like.

FYI, it's MANDATED. Mandatory is a word, but you're not using it correctly.

haha.

As a former clerk, I can attest (and I tell coworkers) that BT on the clerk timeclock stands for Break Time.

Maybe when you were a clerk.

But now?

I clock on and start busting my backside right away.

Now don't get me wrong...I do take my obligatory 24 breaks throughout my 8 hour day.

I have to take those. They're mandated by postal regulations and federal law.

Love ya Hannah.

Muuuwaaah

I did dock work, mail sorting, boxing mail, and all the other clerk duties. I left work thinking it was the easiest job I ever had. And yet we have a few clerks who move like turtles. I suspect they are worn out by working so hard at doing so little--no matter how many customers are waiting. And then there are those other APWU members of another craft. We won't go there. You should see the faces on the CCAs when I tell them when our clerks work overtime they get an additional 10-minute break.

I am sure you are a hard worker, GordonG. I have just seen some very bad apples. It is amazing witnessing the dichotomy of supervisors screaming at carriers while claiming they must not be working because they did not get back when DOIS said they should while the supervisors spend the day in the office tripping over (or merrily chatting with) clerks who are motion challenged.

I think they need to put a GPS bug on the custodian's garbage cart.
