  1. hey Mitchell……..this Buds for you……plenty of drunk mismanagers in our Plant…..but they only drive a desk!

  2. I often drove government vehicles while under the influence of drugs and alcohol. I found it very relaxing. 🍺🍺

  3. Well, that’s the end of this guy’s postal career. Management will have no problem making this stick since Molitor was convicted of a felony, not to mention being in the clink for a year with a three year suspended sentence.
    This is not an isolated problem. We can sneer and ridicule this man for a third DUI in six years, but it’s obvious he was an alcoholic and while people like him can be a public danger and often are, it’s still regrettable that a person can ruin their lives and families too because of their addictions. If a person refuses to seek help or admits they have a bad problem, then my sympathy is gone. But still, to lose a good job at this point in life because of one’s bad habits is a tale with a sad end. It goes without saying that this guy or others like him kill innocent people the world over due to their stubbornness and stupidity.
    We all know of people with substance abuse problems. These types end up homeless, turn to crime, endanger the safety and lives of anybody who comes in contact with them, and although it’s considered bad form to be a snitch in the workplace, if you know people who are showing up for work drunk or drinking, high on whatever, including meth (an addiction any carrier out in the neighborhoods every day can tell you is at pandemic proportions – watching users waste away practically in front of our eyes), in the interest of public safety, management must be informed if they don’t already know, which in that case puts the blame equally on them if they don’t do the right thing by offering to those people the chance to seek help and have it covered by most insurance plans.
    We don’t want to do management’s jobs for them. Normal work issues that don’t involve drunk and high behavior or dealing drugs should be left to management, with theft or an an otherwise very serious problem being the exception to the rule. But we are exposed to drivers out there who are not just fucked up substance wise – so many cannot drive a city block without playing with their damn phones and texting, weaving in and out of their lines, running lights and stop signs and causing as many accidents as the impaired drivers do, so we need to do what it takes to keep at least some of them off the streets if they refuse to accept the responsibility that comes with operating a vehicle.
