Postal Funny

Quite often upon learning I work for the US Postal Service the person I'm talking to will launch into a myriad of complaints about junk mail, the fact they often get letters address to their neighbor, or the long lines when they go to buy stamps.

While I believe the average postal worker does a good job within the constraints of bureaucracy, I also realize we are often our own worst enemies as a entity. These videos, while a spoof go a long way proving why. And sadly they are more truth than fiction. All except the Hitler part that is. None of my coworkers can quite fit the bill as the history's most vile person.

Ever wonder why the lines moves so slow? Here is the answer ...



Or what it is like to work for 20 years and still be stuck with a crummy hours and bad days off? ...



Another one about the asinine hoops we postal workers must jump through to call in sick. It includes actual audio from the automated system and is my personal favorite.

I want to use this Hitler thing for a book trailer, but I'm worried it will be in poor taste. My favorite one was the Hitler/iPad.

My friend went to Argentina when she was in graduate school. She needed to bring bribe money to get her packages and to look at documents in the library. In a free society, we take that stuff for granted.

My elderly cousin used to mail letters just to see how long they would take. I was like, "Chill. They're sending that for a quarter and it won't take more than three days. Find someone who's willing to bring that across the country for you at that price."
