Post Office To Merge North Texas Mail Processing

DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – The money troubles at the U.S. Postal Service will mean a consolidation of mail processing in North Texas.

After a 5 month study, the postal service is announcing that incoming mail processing will now all happen at the Fort Worth processing center.  That will mean shutting down the Dallas processing center, but there will be no change in post office box operations, passport processing or vehicle maintenance in Dallas.

KRLD’s Matt Thomas Reports:

The postal service has seen a 25 percent drop in first class mail volume over the past 5 years. A release from the USPS gives no timeline for the consolidation, and provides no information on how many layoffs might result.

    This is the best thing that could happen to the USPS. As is true with most government agencies, the USPS is filled to the brim with lazy, self-deserving employees. During the busiest time of the year this past year (December) I walked into the post office on Belle Grove in Richardson TX and found a line almost out the door while only two employees worked at the counter. Another employee walked around the common area picking up little pieces of paper dropped here and there. At some point, he bent over to pick up a piece of paper a man had inadvertently dropped when he ripped open an envelope and the employee said (fairly loudly) “Pigs!” I looked at him in shock and a man standing behind me said, “Excuse me?” and the USPS employee quickly denied having said anything and walked away. I am sick and tired of the government employing 10 employees to do 1 person’s job and they’re not cheap at that. They get paid way more than the normal person. It’s time WE the People started paying attention to what OUR government is doing with our taxes. Like paying lazy workers to do nothing but run their big yaps and collect a paycheck. And another thing, the same goes for the dept. of transportation. Why are there always so many people in line trying to get their driver’s license, pay their taxes, etc.? There is nothing more discouraging than standing in a long line while you can clearly see people sitting at their desks chit chatting with co-workers or talking and laughing at the copy machine while only 2-3 employees are handling the line. This is true with every government agency I have ever dealt with. It’s time to do something about these ridiculous government agencies.
