National Postal Workers Day - July 1st


Senior Member
The postman, I was married to one. He loved his job and being a part of the community he served. He was also very involved with his union, he worked a full day as a carrier and then served his union members during the evening and weekends. You could say it was all consuming.

When he got sick, all the carriers were there to offer support and love. After he passed I was able to continue health insurance. investment accounts with the post office. I highly recommend working for the postal service. It is hard work but the benefits and the postal community support are well worth it.

I was mailing a package the other day and the postal worker asked me the routine question “anything liquid, perishable, hazardous…” etc etc. I finally asked what I’d been thinking every time they ask that…. “If someone *was* trying to m@il something hazardous, would they actually own up to it?” The gentleman behind the counter smiled and said, “you’d be surprised” Well then!
