Video: Postal workers endure freezing temperatures

QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) –
If you got your mail on Saturday, you have to thank the men and women who brave the conditions to do it.

While freezing temperatures continue across the Tri-states, some workers don’t have the luxury of staying indoors. Mail carriers with the United States Postal Service are forced to endure the elements.

“Sometimes your fingertips will go numb, but then if you get those hand warmers you can heat them back up.” Carrier Angie Lantau said. “I wear two or three pairs of gloves at a time.” WGEM

    True story:
    Boss: I want you to absorb this 1/2 hour pivot.
    Me: Don’t think that is going to happen
    2:30 PM phone call
    Me: Boss, I am 1/2 hour late
    Boss: There is no excuse
    Me: Really? It is -3 degrees.
    Next week:
    Me: I am retiring after 27 years at the end of the month Good bye
