Strange postal situation....was sent a certified letter several weeks ago that was returned to sender after 3 alledged failed delivery attempts. Never got notice from PO that one delivery was attempted, much less three. Certifed letter sent to me a second time. Had the sender send me a tracking number this time. Tracking number showed letter received by PO but no movement. A week and a half after it was mailed, I went to the PO and they found it. Had alledgedly attempted to deliver once, but again, I never received any notification about this attempt (usually get a pink post card sized notification left in the mailbox after a failed delivery attempt). Interesting thing now is that right after I picked it up I finally started to get email notifications about where the letter alledgedly is. Per postal system, it left Milwaukee early this morning.
Sounds to me that either the carrier is not doing their job or the system that updates the tracking info is not working properly, or both..
You may need to talk to a supervisor or postmaster about this so they can look into what's going on.

Figured out part of the issue w/ the tracking. PO system didn't track anything on it's way to me outside of the initial mailing. What system starting tracking after I picked up the certified letter was the outbound return receipt that is going back to the sender. Called and left a message with the PO regarding why I never received any notification at home. Will see how long it takes them to call me back/how many times I have to call before I get to talk to anyone.

Been a looong week working the counter at the main post office in downtown..
Started first thing Monday morning when the dipshit manager Dilbert jumped on me for talking to the local union shop steward about said dipshit manager saying I don't need to be holding him up from working (which I wasn't) and I wasn't even on the clock yet so he says I need to remain on the doc or I needed to clock into union time but not when he's working and some other nonsense I drowned out ::) I caught up with him later in the day and finished discussing what I needed to with him out of sight from the idiot manager.
I'm taking a half sick day this Monday and the following Monday to get blood work done and for my upcoming annual checkup at the VA medical center. Dumbass Dilbert actually asked me if I would be coming back to work that afternoon after my Dr. appointment and I said "Uh... NO!" I would be available to work 4 hours in the morning and that was it and I'm off Tuesday so that gives me a day and a half off which I could really use after working 6 days straight already..
Pretty much ignored him all week and just concentrated on my job working the counter. Then the assistant manager came over yesterday and actually chewed out Dilbert wondering when I would be returning back to my assigned office on the other side of town? Apparently everybody there wants me back which is really cool because they know I get things done 8) When I am not there that office is critically understaffed and everyone there wants me back ASAP. He also wanted to know when I would get time to do some required training as I am now on a delinquency list because of this.. Since I am assigned to the post office across town, the assistant manager there is the one that gets dinged when his employees do not get their required postal training completed in a timely manor.. No idea when I'll get this training done and I'm not coming in on my day off to get it done so I'll just wait and see what they figure out next week.

Been quiet the last couple of weeks with regards to interactions with the doofis manager..
Haven't seen much of him lately and when I do see him I just walk on by him without any acknowledgement. He stopped by the office where I'm currently working and didn't say one word to me which was great. The entire hour or so he was there he just talked to various coworkers about non-work related stuff basically holding them up from doing their jobs almost as if he was trying to make or keep friends around him that he thinks supposedly like him or something ::) Pretty pathetic to see honestly...
I stopped by the main post office downtown after work yesterday to drop of a package I sold on ebay and talked to the carrier that has filed a 'hostile work environment' grievance against him and she's collecting statements from as many people as possible that have been verbally abused/harassed by him and she wanted my 5 and a half pages I have on him to add to the collection.. She's got a total of 16 statements (including mine) so far from current and former employees that will be turned in as part of the investigation. When it's all said and done, it will more than likely lead to manager Dilbert's eventual removal/dismissal.

Today is my last day before I take my working vacation to start Phase 2 of my window project which will include termite damage removal. Despite it not being a 'real' vacation, it will be nice to get away from work for a week :)
