  1. unbelievable….what an idiot….we all know that stealing is a major NO NO!!!!!!! I guess maybe she forgot.

  2. What a dimwit, she thought she could carry them out,probably on Tour 1 without getting caught by the security cameras? there goes your $60,00/year job.Enjoy wathching the cheap TV’s in jail!

  3. I hate thieves, especially in the Postal Service. But it is unusual to see somebody fired for trying to steal something valuable. Often, they are fired for trying to steal a DVD or something similar that they wouldn’t otherwise take if someone on the street offered it to them as a gift.

    It would take a team of shrinks to figure out why some folks are inclined to steal something that they could otherwise afford to buy. The explanation is beyond my simple analytical capacity.

  4. What’s the big deal, couldn’t be more than $10,000 tops! Hell we have a Post Master who thinks paying out over a million dollars for something she was told NOT to do it no big deal. You guessed it, she’s still here! Hopefully not for long, I’m working on it!
