Fast forward to Monday, I take off early from work to pick up the package, but when I get there the postal clerk at the desk tells me that the genius of a temp has put the package on his truck a second time...apparently doing so after a notice for pick-up has been left is a serious no-no in the postal biz. The postal clerk tells the Postmaster...and she's pissed! I'm still taking it all in stride...they're extremely apologetic and I keep telling them it's no big deal. Well, long story made short, apparently it IS a "big deal" in the postal profession....a "step into my office, because you're fuckin' fired!" kind of deal.
Ever wonder why so many letter carriers ended up "going postal" back in the day? Well, now you know.
