No one has time to imagine being in another’s shoes, anymore. Hence, the lack of empathy in this world. The reality of the insular world has been the dominant force for a full generation, or more, now.
The interaction through computer-based relationships on social media; the geek who never learned to pick up on social cues — of subtle facial expressions, the silent sigh, the unnoticed eye movements; and so the emotional evolution occurring within villages and towns came suddenly to a screeching halt based upon the promise that everyone would become less isolated in this new age of connectivity.
Bureaucracies and Federal agencies, of course, have always been know to be indifferent. Long before the advent of the computer, the portrait of the uncaring governmental entity was a mainstay of ridicule and dark humor.
For Federal employees and U.S. Postal workers who suffer from a medical condition and need to file for Federal Disability Retirement benefits through the U.S. Office of Personnel Management, dealing with the bureaucratic morass is merely one more indignity to endure. Don’t expect OPM to have the imaginative creativity to be in another’s shoes; instead, what you need are the shoes of a legal expert who is knowledgeable in Federal Disability Retirement Law.
Contact a retirement attorney who specializes in OPM Disability Retirement Law, and begin the walk in another’s shoes where the uncaring bureaucracy is the one you depend upon in walking away in another’s shoes.
