There was a pretty big line when I got there, and from what I could hear there were some really dumb people who apparently had never been in a post office in their life. The people working at the counter were kind, patient, accomodating, and never seemed exasperated or frustrated. Honestly, I would have pulled out the stamps on the top of the drawer, not given someone a notebook so they could browse and discuss stamp choices while there were 12 people in line.
Example question: Postal Patron to PO Lady: "We have trouble mailing to
Example comment: "Gimme a couple sheets of stamps." Hello? Is she supposed to read your mind? Tell her how many, moron.
Anyway, when it was my turn I thanked my PO Lady profusely and told her how I admired all of their patience and kindness. She said to me, smiling, "see this smile? It is frozen here until 12/25." And then she told me "don't bother coming here the day after a holiday or a Sunday. The crazies come out. Wait til the next day."
Gotta love the PO People!!!
