Anger is to postal workers as stench is to fishmongers.

"An angry place to work." Man, that does sum up Postal Service sites well. I worked in three at various times over the years -- several times as a temporary contract worker and twice as a full employee.

I don't think I've ever met so many angry, unhappy people in one place in my entire life.

It's hard to overstate the pressure most postal workers are under, it seems to me. I've said for many years now that the U.S. postal system is excellent at getting things from one place to another quickly, but very bad -- seriously, very, very bad -- at people.

The article itself brings back pleasant memories of my childhood -- I was a Boy Scout, we did stuff like that. Seems like a simpler time when I think about it, even though I know it wasn't.
