When a mail carrier spends too much time on the cellphone

Stephen says there's a new mail carrier in his neighborhood, and she's fond of chatting on her cellphone.

In fact, she spends so much time yakking away, Stephen says, she sometimes delivers mail to the wrong house. She also frequently uses the F-word, much to the consternation of parents in the neighborhood.

ASK LAZ: Smart answers to consumer questions

Stephen is curious: What's the U.S. Postal Service's policy when it comes to cellphones?

I know how he feels. I've seen a number of public servants chatting on cellphones during what you'd think were work hours.

It's a little troubling that taxpayers are paying for such "me time."

To find out what the Postal Service had to say, check out today's Ask Laz video.
