by the way folks this type of stuff has been going on since there were government employees. It is very common for one of the first conversations that co-worker will give a new passionate employee is lower your expectations. or my favorite from a supervisior was why are you killing and stressing yourself out doing A+ work just do B work you will get the same money. Obama being President has nothing to do with this aspect of goverment employee culture

I had to speak out. The Correct grammer in this story is PLEAD NOT PLEADED. PLEADED is not a word!
Not only that, but towards the end: "...and he had to spend a couple days in jail."
No. It's either, "He had to spend a couple of days in jail" OR "...a few days in jail."
"Plead" is present tense; "pled" is past tense.

Here’s a thought how about kind, curtesous professional service from the clerks and hours that working people can access. Last two time I was in “the Post office” which was only 2 times in a year, one clerk was all tatted up, looking like she drug herself out of bed after a drunk voicing her love for Obama(during the election). The other time a clerk was nasty and rude saying the another customer look lady I have no idea what you are talking about. If I had another choice I would certainly take it.
