People who are really good at something make it look so easy.
I even have trouble skating backwards!
A few hours of practice. You'll get it.
It's important not to give up on something you love.
Take the Wright brothers.
-They failed many times before they succeeded.
But they kept trying.
And they kept crashing.
It wasn't easy making the first successful aeroplane flight ever.
Sometimes, it takes a lot of work before you can make it look easy.
I wouldn't say you made it look easy!
Stop showing off, DW!
May I have everyone's attention, please?
There's a new volunteer job available to a qualified 3rd grader.
Does that mean you don't get paid?
Miss Tingley will no longer deliver the mail.
We would like to have a student take over.
It will be a rotating job,
so everyone who's interested has a chance to try it.
-But who'd want to do that?
The job will require missing ten minutes of home room every morning.
Who would like to be our first student mail carrier?
Me! Choose me, I love mail!
What skills do you possess that would make you qualified?
As you can see from my resume and references,
I have extensive experience opening mail.
I subscribe to ten magazines, and at least 50 catalogues.
What are three adjectives that describe the real you?
Shy...afraid of beetles.
Why are you interested in being the student mail carrier?
I'm organised, and punctual, and I think I could do a good job.
Hmmm...you THINK you could.
Let me talk to you about mail.
Mail and me. Me and mail.
You know what the most important day of my life was?
-The day I got my first letter.
It was a coupon for a manicure.
And I didn't know what that was.
But I was so touched!
I never knew how strongly you felt about mail, Buster.
So, I'm making you the first student mail carrier.
Thanks, Mr Haney!
This is a wonderful opportunity for you to take on some...
I've broken it down into three steps.
Mr Haney meant it about missing 10 minutes of home room?
Yes. Now, the three steps are...
Stacking it, alphabetising it, and delivering it to the right mail box.
And this hat is really mine?
If you forget one of the steps, just think SAD.
Short for Stacking, Alphabetising and Delivering.
SCHOOL BELL RINGS
-Hi, Mr Higgins!
-Hi, Buster. What's that on your head?
It's the mail carrier's cap. It's my new job at school.
That's quite an honour.
You did that really fast!
It looks easy, but it takes work and dedication.
It seemed easy when Miss Tingley was showing me.
Are you aware of the responsibility that comes with being a mail carrier?
Kind of. I know it comes with a hat.
Can I impart some words of wisdom, one mail carrier to another?
This is the creed we all live by.
"Neither snow, nor rain, nor heat, nor gloom
"stays these couriers from the swift completion of their rounds."
What does that mean?
-It means nothing stops us from delivering the mail.
Phew...sure is hot.
Thank goodness this street is done.
On to the next one.
Ah, what's a little rain and gloom?
I've got mail to deliver!
Time for you to return to home room.
But I can't, until the job is done!
-I appreciate your commitment, but you need to pick up the pace.
OK. I've got to work faster. Just be swift.
Hmmm, nothing but junk mail today.
How was your first day?
Oh, it was rough. I had barely enough time to get it all done.
The first day of a job is always hard. I'm sure you did great.
Where is the bus for our field trip? I sent you the form yesterday.
I didn't receive the form, so I didn't confirm the bus!
The field trip to the zoo is cancelled.
Everyone back inside, for an impromptu spelling bee.
We were going to have a dodgeball tournament today,
but my gym ball order never made it to the mailbox.
Give me ten laps, then we'll work on our push-ups!
What have I done?
But the menu said watermelon slices today!
Somehow, my order for watermelons got lost in the mail.
Hi there! How's the new job going?
Oh, not so well.
There's so much mail, and so little time. I don't know how you do it.
I wasn't always a great mail carrier.
I had a great teacher. He taught me everything I know.
There's one thing you must remember when you're in charge of the mail.
-Approach it one letter at a time.
-Wow! One letter at a time!
Say it to yourself as you sort, as you deliver. Letter by letter.
Letter by letter! That's it!
And then, employ the four rules of efficient mail delivery.
Gather, look at each letter, alphabetise, and deliver.
-I thought it was SAD.
-No, no, Buster. As my mentor always said...
-When you do it right, you'll be GLAD.
-Thanks, Mr Higgins.
I think you may have just what it takes.
I made your favourite! Banana walnut pancakes!
-I don't have time. I'm late.
-But it's only 7.30.
I'll pick something up at the office.
Letter by letter...
Haney comes before Ratburn, Tingley after MacGrady.
Yesterday, there seemed to be a mix-up with the mail.
There won't be any more. I have a system.
Miss Tingley is organising a softball game,
and wondered if you'd like to join.
Your job is to deliver mail, not read it.
And don't I know it!
I didn't know you were a softball player!
Of course! Do you know what kind of stress I'm under at work?
Every day, there's mail. A lot of mail. And someone has to deliver it!
But you've only been doing it for two days.
Two days is like two years.
The watermelon is back!
Thanks to my delivery system. Oh...
I have some confidential mail business.
Did you get your letter, Miss Tingley?
I haven't checked my mail yet.
You have a letter from France.
You should use correct postage when you write back.
Or else it'll be returned. We don't want that, do we?
No, we don't!
-Mr Haney, you threw this out.
-Don't worry, it'll be recycled.
It's the cafeteria menu for the next week!
No need to thank me, I'm just doing my job.
Do you want to come over after school today and watch TV?
Ah, I remember when I had time to do fun things, like watch TV.
Why can't you do fun things now?
I've got two words for you. "The mail."
-And neither rain, nor heat, nor snow, nor..."
OK! But it's only supposed to take up ten minutes of your day!
But you have no idea what I have to do to prepare for those ten minutes!
-I thought we'd have Chinese food for dinner.
-I'm too tired to eat.
Too tired for vegetable dumplings?
It's this job, Mom. I love it, but it really takes it out of me.
I know what it's like to think about work all the time.
But you have to relax.
All right, all right. One dumpling. Maybe two.
I think we're all aware of what a thorough job Buster has done
while serving as mail carrier.
I just want you all to know neither snow, nor rain, nor...
-Oh, Buster, not again!
Your enthusiasm for mail has no bounds.
You've gone above and beyond the call of duty.
However, you will recall that it is a rotating position.
What do you mean?
It means that now it's time for someone else to do the job.
Are you firing me, Mr Haney?
After I gave you the best week of my life?
I'm not firing you.
I just want everyone to experience the huge responsibility
of delivering the mail!
-But nobody knows what it takes until they've done it.
-Exactly my point.
That's why I've put you in charge of training the next mail carrier!
The key to delivering mail is to do it letter by letter.
I really get to wear this hat?
Yes. Now, the four steps to delivering mail are GLAD.
Gather it, look at each letter...
-I really get this hat?
-You're not listening! It's not about the hat.
It's about the mail!
There should be a uniform that comes with this hat.
Delivering the mail is a big responsibility.
Neither snow, nor...
