Why is there always at least one employee at every post office that has to make life difficult?

I doubt if I have been to a post office in five years.

It's good to have minions and henchlings.

My wife would not appreciate being called a minion or henchling.

DRich,

Perhaps she would prefer flunky or lackey? ;-)

In our relationship, I am the flunky or lackey.

Coworkers who refuse to help cover overtime even when needed. I get not taking overtime when there is a simple call out or only a few extra hours but with people taking off for the holidays there is a ton of OT at my job right now and I am stuck holding the bag working 12 hours a day 5 days a week and may have to work my weekends as well.

Seems like a demanding job that requires someone manning the post at all times. I once worked at a call center and was one of the few that had Saturdays off. The newbies wouldn't get that option and would have to either call out if they wanted a Saturday off or request it Months in advance, to almost always be told NO!" And if you called out 3 times or more you would be fired.

I would constantly get asked if I could switch days off with someone whose "weekend" was a Tuesday/Wednesday. After obliging a few co-workers, it seemed they wouldn't even go to anyone else before asking me for a Saturday switch. So I just stopped saying Yes to anyone who needed a Saturday and said "Just leave early that day and say you have an emergency, they HAVE to let you go!"

Needless to say, the call center was Peeved about all these new hires finding a loop hole in the call out rule!

Vloggers who begin every video by saying "what's up" as if trying to sound cool in high school epitomize a larger social plague of grown men who talk, dress, and behave like like teenage slackers.

I wish there was an airline with a "no luggage" policy. No checked luggage, no overhead bins... if it can't fit under the seat in front of you, you don't get on the plane. Either that or get rid of overhead bins and make people check everything. I'm tired of being on a plane with just a small bag and waiting for 150 in front of me to pull their crap out of the overhead bin when I'm ready to just stand up and go.

"What's up" is not even remotely a "teenage slacker" phrase....

Or are you referring simply to the way they say it?

Someone that has $250 on the pass line and nothing in odds. At a $25 table. Youd think theyd know better playing at that level

The only time Ill offer advice is if its clearly a beginner that wants help

I'd be too busy pressing my bets to even add odds.

That was enough of a post to be accurate. These people are a public nuisance.

My pet peeve is espn.com when you click on NCAAF scoreboard by default t only shows the top 25 teams. How about default to showing all games and let people choose if they only want the top 25. There are around 130 division I teams why default to 25? I don't understand it at all.
At my age, a "Life In Prison" sentence is not much of a deterrent.

That could be true. My wife is from Montana and has an affinity for Huckleberries.

Twenty-five games means fifty teams. More than a third of the teams are covered. I'd imagine interest drops rather quickly once you get past the top two dozen or so teams.
