Defecating Mail Carrier Won't Be Fired

By Robert Paul Reyes

"U.S. Postal Service officials said a mail carrier photographed defecating in an Oregon yard will not be fired but has been moved to a different route.

A Postal Service representative said the worker, who was placed on unpaid leave after he was photographed using a Portland yard as a toilet, was reinstated following an official investigation and is being reassigned to a different route, KATU-TV, Portland, reported Friday."



I can cope with a defecating mailman as long as he doesn`t use my yard as a toilet. When you gotta go you gotta go.

It`s the talkative mailmen who are an embarrassment to their profession; If I were the head mail dude, I would fire every last gabby mail carrier.

My mail is usually delivered about ten minutes before I have to leave for work; I can`t remember how many times I`ve been late to work because my chatty mail dude was shooting the breeze with a neighbor.

If the defecating mailman isn`t a talker, I hope he`s transferred to my route.
