    omg….82…gift card from 2012 ??? I have nothing else to say.

  • Mail Clerk

    I have one word for Mr.Ball…RETIRE!


    Why retire when you can get paid for just SHOWING UP! Thousands of other postal employees get paid for doing – NOTHING BUT SHOWING UP! What a way to run a business.

  • Mail Clerk

    But why give back the retirement you earned? Too many losers like Mr. Ball in the Postal Service!

  • Ivan

    I’m sure that in some places people may get away with just showing up. But “thousands”? I’d like to know where you got that statistic from so I can check it out.

    All I have to say is if you did my job for one week you would quit. If we did nothing you would never get mail delivery. Don’t say anything until you walked a mile in my shoes! This guy is probably management.

  • Bob

    First off innocent till proven guilty! Secondly Most postal employees would never take anything that did not belong to them and the only loser I see is you!

  • Mail Clerk

    You are the loser! I will be enjoying retirement at 60 and out of the rathole that is the U.S. Postal Service.
