ONCE IN a while I come across a feature article that gives a glimpse into the life and motivation of the kind of individual I see every day and fail to appreciate fully.
Meghan Irons’s story about mail carrier Domenic Corsetti and his work day in triple-digit temperatures (“Carrying on, for 8 long miles,’’ Metro, July 23) is just such an article. We see mail carriers day in and day out, but how many of us really give a second thought to the person carrying the mail?
Irons provided a quote from Corsetti toward the end that, to me, exemplifies the best in our workforce.
Upon seeing a co-worker dressed in a cutoff T-shirt, Corsetti (clad in an accompanying photo in regulation Postal Service summer attire) gently summed up his disapproval with these words: “We are all professionals.’’
I thank him for believing in himself and taking pride in his profession.
