    I don't mean that to be a pointed question or to illicit mockery because I know plenty of them don't do much of anything, but what I'm asking is what are their responsibilities once the sort is over and we leave the station?

    Spending the rest of the day husking their cobs.

    They answer courier questions such as "The address is wrong, what do I do?"

    That would be the CSA. The mgrs say "Go ask the CSA."

    Altering the time cards to say 7:59, 11:59, or, rarely, 13:59.

    From what I see, they are buried in never ending paperwork, administrative junk, useless meetings, tracking down mis-sorts and covering their posteriors.

    You're smoking crack.

    Managers never answer phone calls.

    You should know that from your "experience."
