We talk about 5 day delivery…we talk about closing this or that plant down…but when it comes down to it, I think the only thing that is going to save or really change the Post Office is something as intangible as filling it with good human beings who care about other people.
This story warmed my heart.
One of the things that caught my attention was how the town rallied around him when the postmaster demanded that he take down his personal pictures that he’d put on the walls of his office.
We (postal workers) aren’t known as being “people” oriented.
This guy is an exception to the rule (unfortunately). I say unfortunately because it shouldn’t be a surprise when somebody acts like a decent human being.
Like a really good teacher, there are going to be people who make a difference in spite of the system they are dealing with.
Hooray for you, Mike the Mailman.
You do good.
