Post Office personnel doing their best

Just read another letter bashing the Post Office. I know that the staffing and hiring process is no longer handled locally. So when carriers retire or move on, our local office is at the mercy of people in Las Vegas and Denver to replace them. So in the meantime it just adds to all the usual challenges of getting the mail delivered. It is not unique to Carson, I see carriers out at night in Reno also. When you see those carriers out there in the cold and dark that you find so inconvenient to walk to your mail box in, realize that they are probably working on their second, third, or fourth route of the day and they would probably rather be home with their families but they are out there doing their best to get you your mail. Have a little compassion and maybe thank them! Merry Christmas!
