Keeping USPS from their appointed duty
I attended a bike race today in Greenville NC. I arrived with the first race underway, but I noticed a postal van parked sideways on the street behind the barriers with a couple of police cars. Curious, I inquired as to what was going on. Turns out, the postal driver was insisting on going through in spite of the race.
He said it was illegal to prevent him from doing his job...and wanted people arrested.
It appeared they called his supervisor in and they finally gave him an escort so he could make his pickups.
What an idiot.
Then, there were the three women in an Explorer that left work and moved barriers out of the way so they could get through....just as the postal van was trying to turn into the same street. The woman that got out and moved the barrier made the postal worker stop his truck so they could go first.
I'm sure that pissed him off too.
