Trid_Kicker: Fade2black: I for one, am shocked, that there could possibly be an overweight, lazy, government employee out there.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.
AlanSmithee: khyberkitsune: Welcome to FARK.Good work, and thanks!
Trid_Kicker: 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.//IMHO YMMV//Let he without sin throw the first stone etc...
Snarfangel: kombi: 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.If the homeowner didn't like it, why did they put a lawn right where the postal carrier was driving?

ZeroCorpse: And just think... That lazy fatass who doesn't care about your lawn is making a VERY nice salary and has fantastic benefits.
