They fired the last guy who did this.

Anyone wanna bet this yoyo gets terminated too?

I haven't even read it yet and I'm sure that regardless of what's in the article he'll get fired.

================

January 15, 2010 — I’m hired into the USPS as a Transitional Employee (TE) in the city of San Diego.

The job description states that this will never
lead to a career position. The base pay is $21 an hour, but with none
of the medical benefits of a regular. Stations will use us until they
don’t need us anymore, then we’ll be sent to another desperate outpost. We are expendable. This is mercenary carrier work.




January 18 — The first person
to speak to us during training is from the Employee Assistance Program.
It’s her job to make sure no one goes “postal.” (A bad omen for a new
position?) We watch an hourlong video about reading the “language” of dogs.




January 30 — Last day of
carrier training. It’s also the instructor’s 20th anniversary of being a
letter carrier. A classmate thinks it’s a good idea to give the
instructor a card. For some reason, this classmate announces to everyone
that the card was my idea. I leave training looking like a teacher’s pet.

Then cards begin to show up in peoples’ boxes. Goddamn Christmas miracles!

“Thank you for carrying our mail.” There’s a $20 bill. Or a box of chocolates. Or even a goddamn plate of baked goods.


Those regulars who called in? ***** ’em. Those cards meant for them are now mine.


LOLLOLLOL

I got the feeling he is not the type who went in thinking he could be a career TE. Sort of like a recruit who joins the Army thinking about 4 years and not 30 years.

I jam a route, after which Hardass Greg says, “Ryan, come here.” He has my timecard in hand. He tells me that I’m supposed to report to the Encanto station the next day. I figure I’m going out on a loan. “All right,” I say, taking the timecard. Hardass Greg hesitates. “Yeah?” I ask. “Nothing,” he says. I don’t know it yet, but this is how Hardass Greg says goodbye.
I'm a PSE Clerk, and this is pretty much how I got transferred, at the beginning of a shift. I didn't even get my timecard. I had to go back to my old office to clock out, then bring it with me to the new place to clock in the next day.
