I remember one year, I used my own coupon at Burger King and the manager called the office accusing me of stealing the coupon out of the mail. After that I made it a point to use the coupons there whenever possible. Finally the manager who always glared at me, questioned where I got the coupons, I told him I have a mailbox and a PO box, so what's the problem? The following week I met my 2 other coworkers there with coupons, the manager was furious but the Burger King workers just laughed because they hated their manager and thought we were great! Merry Christmas!

You will get fired.
If you ever start to feel like the world has forgotten about you, try missing a couple payments.

if you're name isn't on it, don't take it. simple
someone dropped a quarter on the workroom floor once and it stayed there for an entire week, everyone treated it like it was some zombie plague or something.
eventually station manager picked it up with a supervisor witnessing him and committed it to petty cash or something

We had a clerk to get fired for taking coupons out of UBBM. This same clerk did not work half the time. They paid her for a lot of hours she did not work but soon as she took the coupons she got fired.

Don't be shy. If you want that magazine, subscribe. If you take it from the mail, get your cardboard sign ready.

One carrier got fired because he sold the coupons on the Ebay, maybe he got them the UBBM tubs.

When I went for my orientation way back when, a Postal Inspector gave a presentation to our group. He also showed a video about theft of mail. The title of the video was "It's Not Worth It." The title of that video says it all.
