My father is rolling over in his grave

“Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds”
Post Office motto since who knows when

“The U.S. Postal Service suspended mail delivery in parts or all of several Midwest states including Wisconsin.
The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, 1/29/2019

“With severe winter weather impacting the area, and forecasts predicting temperatures to reach historic low levels, the U.S. Postal Service will suspend regular mail delivery on Wednesday, January 30, 2019.”
Fox 6 Milwaukee, 1/29/2019

“For the second day in a row, the U.S. Postal Service will temporarily suspend regular delivery service on Thursday, Jan. 31. This is to ensure the safety and well-being of postal carriers and other employees.”
Fox 6 Milwaukee reporting on 1/30/19

No USPS delivery on Thursday 1/31/19?

I personally helped a DHL Express delivery person into our office building today (Thursday) when the USPS took a powder. I also saw UPS and Federal Express trucks out in abundance. All while the USPS felt it necessary to stay home but still increase the price of a postage stamp.

Can we say “clueless?”

I have countless memories of my late, great father that I can recall to this day. How he proudly worked for the Post Office for more than 31 years. When a neighbor lady asked in front of this youngster if he would want his sons to work in the Post Office, he immediately said, “Hell no!”

How come? Dad saw in the mid to late 1970’s how the Post Office work ethic had started to decline. Not to mention how the workers had become a bunch of slobs.

Yes, I know how the USPS handles all sorts of volume per day.  Even so, I know Dad would be completely ashamed of what has become of the Post Office today.
