- This 'Opinion' Is Not Worth Publishing, but...
A postal employee in this city wrote a Letter to the Editor of their local newspaper - please click link to read. We do not believe, not for one minute, that the vast majority of letter carriers would say the things this person states was said. This person wants to the paper, and its' readers, to believe his statement... "So, why do the mail carriers accept cash and gift cards when they know they are not allowed? Well, at the post offices where I have worked, they all state they deserve the cash and expect cash gifts. They then give special treatment to customers who tip graciously." We do not and encourage you to submit an e-mail to this papers editor disagreeing with this persons letter.
