    • The folks hired by the USPS now are the cream of whats left after higher education is taken and swift justice is nonexistent except for us, while the public service stinks. The pool USPS draws from are the same pool UPS, FED-EX, and Amazon will draw from. Very little ethics at best and they believe I’m getting mines now mentality! The older employees of the USPS are leaving and Wow, look what remains. The USPS created these people committing these acts of theft of other people money and goods. Then expect to get away with it. Cameras all over the facilities and unseen as well and you do what; Steal? You sign, to deliver a certified letter, but you steal the contents? or steal gift cards from letters. The cards are numbered and your photo is taken during purchasing, and you expect not to be discovered? Finally, nobody can steal from the Government!
