And These are our Employees

Date: 15 August, 2011

Imageheesh.

As your are a-fixing to read — it is not a pretty picture. In fact it is down right ugly. Indeed mu-fugly.

I am writing about government employees. Yeah, those. Now it is just my opinion but — a government employee is our employee. I do believe that to be 100% correct. We are their employer. Period.

In Albuquerque

Apparently two employees at the post office in Albuquerque, New Mexico, do not believe We the People are their employer. I can't understand how they could come to that conclusion but, without a doubt, some have. Scurvy curs.

A couple who live in Albuquerque have had their mail service cutoff by some pernicious twit ... er ..."postal supervisor" ... er ... same thing (quoting Kob news) because:

" 'Our letter carrier was threatened by your dog on numerous occasions and your only option is to rent a post office box to receive your mail'. "

Oh really? I don't think so and neither does the:

However, at this point the only opinions, not facts mind you - just mere opinions, which matter are the:

But wait, there's more. Just what does the reporter have to say? Quoting Kob news:

"The problem appears to be four chocolate Labrador Retrievers. Sometimes the dogs are in the house when the mailman delivers the mail. When the dogs bark, they scare the mailman.

[. . .]

"The dogs are rambunctious and bark, but they are behind a steel security door."

Indeed there is a photograph of the "steel security door" posted for all to see. Hence, even if the "four chocolate Labrador Retrievers" desired ever so strongly to chew on said letter carrier they would be unable to do so. In a way, you have my sympathies hounds.

However my four legged friends, at the same time consider yourselves lucky for the letter carrier sounds like a cowardly, pitiful, pasty codfish — which stink — to me. He'd probably give you indigestion.

Yes, something really does stink

And from what I have read it sure isn't the:

So then — where is this wretched smell originating from? Ah, could it possibly be from the two postal carbuncles employees? Surely it just couldn't be. They must know their place in the government employer — employee food chain (at the bottom!)? Regrettably I fear the answer is thus — do not bet on it.

It seems to me these two carbuncles employees think they are in charge and We the People shall do their bidding. No? Well they are most certainly acting the part. Quoting Wikipedia:

"The United States Postal Service (also known as USPS, the Post Office or U.S. Mail) is an independent agency of the United States government responsible for providing postal service in the United States. It is one of the few government agencies explicitly authorized by the United States Constitution.

"The USPS traces its roots to 1775 during the Second Continental Congress, where Benjamin Franklin was appointed the first postmaster general. The cabinet-level Post Office Department was created in 1792 from Franklin's operation and transformed into its current form in 1971 under the Postal Reorganization Act."

Gee, it would seem that I was correct. So, I would say that:

It is that simple. Then why don't they (government employees) get it? Because they think they are the boss of We the People. Rabid hounds.

Epilogue

What the end result of this Mexican stand off (down here it is simply called a 'stand off') will be I haven't a clue, neither does anybody else.

I can tell you this — left up to me the Albuquerque post office would immediately have two employment openings:

I'll be dipped if I would let two employees treat members of We the People like dirt. Not a chance. Furthermore, I would ensure they would lose all benefits they might have earned and any retirement they may have built up. Finally after I was done firing those two worthless pieces of excrement neither would be able to get a job as anything better than an employee at McDonalds fast food joints. Gag.

Or, to put it in Gungan (Boss Nass, Gungan leader), those two cowardly, pitiful, pasty codfish — which stink — will be pu-nished.

As you know Benjamin Franklin was the very first Post Master General. I am quite sure he did not run things the way they currently are within the United States Postal Service.

Without doubt Mr. Franklin would hang his head in shame at the postal service's current state of affairs.
