Retiring from the Post Office

A good friend of mine is a mail carrier, and he's about to retire. He is a very intelligent guy, and not afraid to speak his mind -- especially when his retirement date is near enough that it would take longer than that to fire him....

He reports:

I have long said, "Don't ask me a question if you aren't prepared to hear the answer." I will say what I think, and yes, it has gotten me into trouble numerous times.

But, you know where you stand with me and I can look at the face in the mirror... well, maybe not for too long, but you know what I mean. Truth or nothing.

I did have a little bit of fun at work today. When asked by the boss three rungs up the ladder from my boss what I would do to improve the Post Office, I said, "To start with I'd fire you."

After the choking and gasping subsided, he asked me why.

I said if you are too dumb to see how understaffed this unit is, how hard the crew is working, and how much OT we are putting in, you're too dumb to be employed here.

They did "excuse" me from the rest of the interview rather quickly after that, which worked for me.

If they leave me alone, I'll leave them alone.

See why he's my friend? Love it. :-)
