Respect The Uniform
Just a Bit Outside dedicated the 8 o'clock hour to Santa suits, but it quickly divulged into a conversation about a mailman who wore a Santa suit on his route. As shocked and upset as me? I certainly hope so.
It's time someone stood up for the Postal Service. I love Santa as much as the next guy, but why should a mailman be allowed to disrespect the uniform like this? When a letter carrier accepts the job, he accepts the responsibility of represented the USPS to the best of his/her abilities. That includes wearing the uniform while on the job.
A Santa hat would have been acceptable. I would even have accepted a fake beard. But this is too much for my liking.
The Postal Service is a dying industry. It's up to the common people to preserve the sanctity of what's left.
Merry Christmas, Santa letter carrier...I guess.
