maybe they should start hiring extra help instead of having employees work their days off because there "is no coverage"

They can't ,Nobody seems to want a job where you have to work 60+ hours a week,7 days a week.It used to be there was a skills test to get a job,now if you are breathing,you pass...I don't think they even do drug screening now.

So which will come first:
Going Amazon becomes a thing.
Amazon automates everything.

Phew!  I was afraid it was gong to be my brother.  I don't know what does it, but being a postal worker has made him a resentful angry person.

Obviously it's due to the pressure of the directive to deliver the mail even slower than before.

Per capita the post office has fewer office shootings than typical. It just happens to be a massive employer, with 500,000 employees.

Is that a recent DeJoy development, or your normal "Republicans want to crash and burn the USPS so they can get kickbacks from UPS and Fedex when Grandma has to mail in her water bill at $4 a crack"?

Wonder if this has anything to do with why my mail just wasn't picked up for two farking straight days.
Put it out Sunday night (with the flag up) and no one bothered to grab it yet. Maybe they'll  actually take it today.

The latter.

But then, there is a new problem:

The Amazon robots rise up and kill us all.

Well Monday was a holiday, and everyone was so stretched from it that Tuesday was burned too.

Yeah, I remember the good old days when mass shootings only occurred in the post office.  Going Postal just doesn't have the same meaning any more.

Twelve years of grade school, a church every 6 city blocks, and nobody bothers to teach conflict resolution.

/And can't you just hear the conservatives cry if someone actually tried?

It's like they always say about success:

Do one thing. Do it mediocrely, but consistently, and achieve some fame on an aging  internet message board.

The real cringe is how much money and effort is put into training people to be that way because then it's easier to sell them stupid shiat that nobody needs.

It was so quaint when workplace mass shootings were unusual enough that a handful of shootings over a couple of decades was sufficient reason to create a sobriquet.

Like those blissful years before the  VA Tech massacre, when the life of every school shooter was posthumously examined for "Columbine-like" behaviors.

Ahhh...  what a farking disgusting piece of shiat country we live in.

I was just having this conversation on line at Walmart with a rare combination of human: old, veteran, redneck, MAGA, black, BLM supporter. Started talking about how people don't try to talk it out anymore because they emulate what they see on the movies and music, violence instead of emotional intelligence. We have a societal problem in the form of an education problem, and not a formal one but a societal education we owe ourselves to give to impressionable young people.

Sadly, this goof is the patron demon of the term "going postal"
