I was a locksmith in grad school and we'd get requests from banks asking us to go secure repo houses that we knew were probably crack dens. I'd chuckle whenever I heard my boss on the phone say real loud, "No, but thanks for the offer!"

"They could make more of an effort to ring my bell when I have a package. It's a headache to come to the post office."

Wow, this is what entitlement society has produced.

About 50 angry residents - organized by the neighborhood chapter of New York Communities for Change - gathered in front of the post office yesterday to protest the epidemic of late mail and parcels that never arrive.

Talk about treating the symptom instead of the disease.

well you could get them some dragon skin, glock 9's, and m4's, but in this modern anti-gun culture we'll probably just pay for them all to move to <lisp>fran sanfrisco.</lisp>

"The postal workers have a right to fear for their life," said Quantanya White, 38, a home health-care worker. "It doesn't give them the right not to deliver the mail. Just because this place is bad, you're not going to deliver the mail?

I LOL'd. Apparently they can all walk to the post office to pick up the mail, and should do so until its not so dangerous there that everyone legitimately fears for their lives. What a country.

I live in a nice safe neighborhood, and I have to go to the Post Office to pick up my packages because the mail carrier is too lazy to go past the mailbox bank (I live in a townhouse.)

Yup. Why not focus the effort to fixing your neighborhood that is so run down that mailmen and women fear for their lives?
But wait, that is too much effort.

My favorite part FTA was:

Federal money hasn't gone to support the USPS in decades. The gubbament is letting it fail, like they should have let the banks fail.

I live in one of those parts of the country where nobody ever locks their doors. If I get a package and we're not home, the mailman just leaves it in the porch for us. The only time I've ever had to go to the post office to pick something up was if it required a signature and I wasn't home when the mail went.

Exactly what I was thinking.  You can organize 50 angry people to protest the post office, how about organizing those 50 angry people into fixing the reason why the post office is having problems delivering your mail.

No empathy for them.

FTA: "That is unbelievable. Government services can't be stopped at the boundaries of high-crime areas," he said. "They need to re-read that motto - through hail, sleet and snow."

 Perhaps they should change that to "hail of bullets."

"We're getting bad service here because it's Brownsville - people on Riverside Drive get their mail at 10 in the morning," she said "Something's got to change."

That "Something's" is that you need to kick your gangbanging son, brother, husband, boyfriend, daughter, sister, whoever, the fark out. And face up to what the real problem is. And that real problem is the crime culture that you and everyone else in your neihborhood lives in and just accecpts as being normal yet biatch about whenever it inconviences you.
 
2013-05-06 10:01:18 AM
They're probably talking about the block of housing projects. You gotta go inside and sort out the mail, which is likely unsettling.
 
2013-05-06 10:06:09 AM
Maybe the protestors should form a neighborhood watch, exercise their 2nd amendment right, and clean up their damn hood.

You beat me to it.  Thought at first this would be Brownsville, Texas, but that's a horse of a different color.

DeathCipris: The gubbament is letting it fail, like they should have let the banks fail.


Not quite. More like the Gubbament is trying as hard as it can to make the USPS fail. You can hate on the USPS for lots of reasons, but absent the interference of Congress, the problems it is facing today would largely disappear.

Congress mandated a huge pension funding fiasco and, when USPS tries to cut costs to comply, Congress says no. As a for instance, USPS has tried to cut costs by shutting down less-used post offices, and when that happens Congress has a fit and forbids it from happening. Those offices lose money, but USPS can't shut them down because of the Gubbament.

Similarly, USPS wants to kill Saturday delivery for regular mail and, again, Congress throws a tantrum. The facts are fairly clear, USPS still does an amazing job, at an extraordinarily low cost, while having to service clients in a way no private company ever would. You think FedEx and UPS want to deliver to that house in the middle of a cornfield in nebraska every day? I doubt it.

No you are getting bad service because you support thug culture and wont identify and fight the problem in your hood dip shiat.

I think she's more concerned about the reparations...I mean govt checks.

Brownsville is no farking joke. I've done my falling asleep on subways at 3am after partying or walking around alone in neighborhoods where I probably shouldn't be.

There's no way in hell I'd walk through Brownsville, not even in the daytime.

Sounds like a great location to start up your own UPS-like store. Surely there's one old lady there who never leaves. Let her recieve packages on behalf of everyone else in the building. Everybody pays her $5 a month for the service. Get a lawyer to draw up a contract that states if you don't pay or pickup your package in 30 days, it's hers. Give her a cell so she can call people when the packages arrive. You'll need a little more than that. She'll need a grandson to do the lifting, but this seems like a time where these 50 people can just work together and do the same. If anybody wants their stuff without paying, give it to them, but from there out, refuse their mail.

Get a whole building in on it and Grandma's got a pretty good business going.

If I get any mail (such as certified) that I have to pick up, I must travel some 7 miles TO ANOTHER CITY - even though there is a postal facility LITERALLY around the corner from my house. (And no, this is not a small town, it's a city of a million people.)

/Because the gubmint likes to make sense?

How about we drop a few Hellfires instead of the mail? Go for the root of the problem.
