PROMISES, PROMISES, PROMISES!

"Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds"

Yup, go to any post office in the good old U.S. of A. and ask what their motto is. One in a blue uniform and stripes along the side of the legs will stand at attention and state the words: "Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds" At least that is what I imagine. I also imagine they will raise the cost of stamps once again to pay these "swift couriers" for increases in salary.

Now normally I have no beef with mail carriers, They, deserve raises and they work hard, no question about it, but the organization needs to own up.

This is the second time I have had no mail on an ordinary business day. The other time, like it was on March 14 of this year was a snowstorm. At least I could say the first time was a bad day, but this time, the snow accumulations couldn't prevent an ant from moving. The streets are mushy with slush but very passable, there is the wind and it is heavy at times, but this courier has a nice truck.

TLW (The Little Woman) went to work in this weather at its height, defying the elements to serve the public. Yes, like the Post Office, TLW is a public servant in a way, dealing with the public, the same public who used the same roads as TLW, and when the roads are nice and sunny, the couriers! Shame on someone!
