Florida nudists upset over USPS carrier who won’t deliver mail inside resort community

HUDSON, Fla. (WFLA) – Nudists who live at Eden RV Resort and City Retreat in Hudson say they are being discriminated against by the U.S. Postal Service.

One postal carrier refuses to deliver mail inside the gates of the resort for fear of seeing naked people, residents say. When they complained to the post office, a manager told them carriers are not required to enter the resort if it offends them.

“It offends me that she does not do her job because if she can’t do her job, then she shouldn’t be having this job,” said Eileen Hudak, who has lived at the resort for 10 years and calls it a “family resort.”

Residents called Better Call Behnken for help getting their mail. They say the regular mail carrier has no problem entering the park, and they receive packages from FedEx and other carriers. But when one female mail carrier fills in – and she does so on a regular basis – they don’t receive packages.

The park has mailboxes outside its gate, but if boxes don’t fit, residents want them delivered either to their residence or the office at the park.

    What a clown. There is no official “postal creed”. He’s been watching too many cartoons that have the “neither rain nor sleet….” nonsense. That little saying was on ONE post office in New York. The post office does not have an official creed (I think he meant credo?) nor do they have an official motto.

    That creed was put on that NY PO and was not paid for it, since it was the motto of the Imperial Persian Courier Service centuries ago. They were paid very well, but occasionally lost their heads, since the saying ” Don’t kill the messenger” .

    Carriers do not have to deliver if they feel threatened. However there is no rule about offended. If you allow them not to deliver to addresses they find offensive then what next? Will they not deliver to a Mosque, Synagogue, Church, NRA, Planned Parenthood, Right to Life office, Republican/Democratic office? If she is to embarrassed to deliver to the nudist colony then she needs to bid to a different route/station.

    There is nothing in her job description that says she has to look at stranger’s bare genitals. If the complainers daughter was delivering pizzas or FedEx and some dude answered the door with his Johnson hanging out, that’s a criminal offense and I’ll bet he’d be upset. Why should she have to change her job because he likes to walk around without his pants on?

    The difference is that this is a legal clothing optional facility. She doesn’t have to change her job, just her route. She is obviously someone who fills in for other carriers. If she is the tech (who fills in for set routes) she can bid on another tech position filling in for other routes. If she is a non-career who is used wherever there is a need she can request not to be put on that route. This is something she should be able to work out with her Postmaster. Not delivering the mail is not a good option.
