#1 What is that letter carrier doing working?
#2 That's a farking fat-ass for a person who's supposed to be delivering stuff to homes all day.
#3 What's the yellow thing on the lawn, some sort of sprinkler the fat-ass was trying to avoid maybe?
 
2013-10-05 05:07:50 PM
That's pretty farking lazy.  She's clearly driving up a sidewalk.

Hey, I just met you,
And I am lazy,
But there's a sprinkler,
Avoid it, maybe!

I do not defend the mail carrier. i had a friend that was a mail carrier. They are really pushed for time. They have quotas on how long there route should take. Sometimes unreasonable time. But this carrier was an idiot.
 
2013-10-05 06:19:51 PM
There's lazy and then there's uberfarkinglazy. Her whole "angry at the world" attitude and body language don't help her case either.

If the homeowner didn't like it, why did they put a lawn right where the postal carrier was driving?

Newman!

And just think... That lazy fatass who doesn't care about your lawn is making a VERY nice salary and has fantastic benefits.
 
2013-10-05 06:21:29 PM
Am I the only one to notice or could she shed a few el-bees?
 
2013-10-05 06:23:52 PM
I also like how she just tossed the package on the porch without even a courtesy knock on the door or ring of the doorbell.

The corpulence of Patricia Mazie
Had ultimately made her quite lazy
She pulled into a lawn-
and not before dawn!-
It's driving the entire town crazy.

OK, I'll bite. What's your point?

Also: she probably doesn't have a job at all anymore.
 
2013-10-05 06:31:20 PM
Her a$$ didn't get that size by doing exercise.

Oh, there will be a LONG process to determine that.  The union will be sure of that.  She'll be paid the whole time, too.

I fail to see the problem. It was grass, not flowers. Driving on grass doesn't kill it. Should I be upset the postal worker had the audacity to step on the porch, too? Does just as much damage as driving on grass.

 Express Mail. Now, thanks to modern technology, a cow can deliver the mail much faster than a pony ever could.

This is what happens when you try to make fat women wok, instead of just paying them to sit around the single-wide and smoke Basic 3
 
2013-10-05 06:51:50 PM
The "pressed for time" argument doesn't work here.  She could have gotten out and walked the package to the door like she was supposed to, walked back, and been on her way in less time than she took to pull the truck up to the front steps .
 
2013-10-05 06:55:36 PM
I'll go with both lazy and stupid.

If she were just lazy, she would have tossed the package on the doorstep without even getting out of the truck.  Why would you go to the trouble of driving up the sidewalk like that and then get out to walk the last few steps anyway?

That's OK, just get the process started. In the meantime she can work in <puts on sunglasses> the oversize sorting room.

It's possible the customer told the carrier they could drive there and posted the video just to go viral.

What the Post Office will be pissed about is she backed up. Backing in a vehicle is a big No No unless
it's absolutely necessary.

No issues with the "toss". If the package couldn't take that light of a drop, it was not meant to be mailed or not packed well.
 
2013-10-05 07:03:41 PM
Geeezzz. I bet the bumper sticker on that postal truck is: 'my other vehicle is a hover-round'.

considering she spent more time driving slowly/"carefully" (sans the crushed lawn and all) than it would have taken to walk, she doesn't even have a partial excuse for time-savings.

Every once in a while, no it wont, but do it on a regular basis and yes it will. Also, had it rained recently it would have left impressions in the ground, not a good this to do to someones lawn.

The postman always farks the lawn, twice.

Salaries for postal carriers are public information.  You can actually look it up, but did that even occur to you?

http://www.nalc.org/depart/cau/pdf/wages/paychart0413.pdf

Last year, average salaries were about $54k
This year they have been cut substantially to $46k

I don't have a problem with these salary levels, actually.  If the U.S. is "exceptional" then shouldn't ALL of our workers earn enough to earn a living?  Even if that job is "just" delivering packages?

//that said, her driving on the grass is a no-no and she might very well be sanctioned.
 
2013-10-05 08:00:44 PM
Not a chance in hell she's fired or even remotely seriously disciplined.  Thanks unions.

My favorite part is when she tosses the packages onto the porch.  I guess she couldn't be bothered to take a shiat on them.
 
2013-10-05 08:03:38 PM
Hey, give her a break.  At least she got out of the truck and took two steps before tossing the mail on the porch.

I love how much the truck leaned over when she lumbered over and climbed in.

1)  It compacts the soil.

2)  Some of us live in climates where there will be plastic pipes a few inches below the surface.  Even if they survive you *WILL* break the sprinkler heads if you drive over one.

Ker_Thwap: Not a chance in hell she's fired or even remotely seriously disciplined.  Thanks unions.


Why should she be fired for this?  Then the PO is without a worker; they have to hire someone else, train them, etc. -- meanwhile the rest of the employees have to take up the slack, etc.  All for this?  She should be (can't say she will but it IS likely) will receive some sort of reprimand/warning etc.  And rightly so.

It's amazing how fast the (right-leaning) public is to call out "FIRE PEOPLE" at every transgression.  Most employees will bend the rules at one time or another -- public and private.  It just happens; it's what people do.  (Ever leave your job early and have someone "cover" for you? etc.)  While not justifiable, it is ultimately a cost of doing business and that has to be weighed against the seriousness of the transgression vs. having to fire and rehire and retrain and for all that the new hire could be WORSE!

Most likely, now that she is aware that houses have video, she may be less likely to repeat this kind of thing.

Oh no she does not have an excuse. She should be fired. But she is union so she will get paid retraining or something.

And a pension that is currently bankrupting them as well!  I for one, am shocked, that there could possibly be an overweight, lazy, government employee out there.  News at 11.

 Why would you assume I'm right leaning?  I'm not anti union.  I'm anti union defending the slugs who end up making the rest of the workforce work harder to support their sloth.

#1 - USPS isn't affected by the government shut down because they don't receive funds directly.  I'm pretty sure Congress would have exempted them even if they were because they are so essential to our economy (and the world's....I think they handle something like 40% of the world's mail)

I don't know; I've seen enough American Greed to not have much faith in the private sector anymore either.

And I personally think pensions are great.  All of America should rue their disappearance.  As it is now, most of us will have to work long into our golden years.  What drives people to scoff and attempt to ridicule workers who have pensions, I can't figure out.  Jealousy probably.
