Too Lazy To Go Postal

Ah , F*** it

Ah , F*** it

If you live in New York and have only randomly received your mail in the last few years I may know why. It  seems a postal worker has been hoarding them. Authorities found 40,000 undelivered mail items in his apartment, some dating back to 2005. The 67 year old is blaming depression and alcohol for his poor work ethics. It took 5 postal workers, five hours to remove all the mail. No word on whether he had opened any. Sheez, that would have kept me entertained for years.

Psst  OK, I had to do the sums … 40,000 over say 8 years, lets go with about 5000 undelivered pieces of mail a year. Divide that by 52 weeks = 97 undelivered a week, which is about 19 a day (working on a 5 day week).  If we take out days off,  including holidays and sick leave …. that was one lazy bastard.

The Postman Never Rings

These don't look important!

To resident of Bustleton, we know know why the United States Postal Service complaints section in Philadelphia has been so busy for the last decade. They have just uncovered 20,000 pieces of undelivered mail at a Philadelphia postal carrier’s garage. Whoopsie, he must have been a lazy bugger because it took three mail truck to move the stack. Hmm, some of the mail dates back to 1997.Officials are still trying to locate the postal worker but in the meantime they are attempting to deliver all the overdue letters.

K?

Oh dear, a council in England has had to make an embarrassing apology to the 1,000 or so residents who didn’t receive their new friggin wheelie bins. Hmm, seems the  bin contractor for Oxon employed “illiterate” men who were unable to read addresses or street maps (but they could drive?). The South Oxfordshire district council’s official report revealed that due to their unfortunate educational background “It appeared that they did not read maps or addresses and that they relied entirely on visual memory. A consequence was that bins were not delivered to approximately 1,000 properties at the start of the contract.” Simply brilliant.
