My own personal hell...

Well....I had a sad loss recently. The pack and ship postal store that was so, so conveniant for me went and unexpectedly shut down. I loved it....a salty little former New Yorker ran the store and she was quick and down to business. Great little shop, rarely any lines, with funny quotes on the wall that dissed George Bush. I loved it. Well, she's gone and I really miss her.

Here's why: I found myself having to go to the post office twice this week to stand in a mother of a line both times. Yea, I know...lines should be expected during the holidays. The first time wasn't so bad, but today...arghhh. While I stood in the snail-paced line, somebodies car alarm was blarring the whole time, there was a skip on the CD being played, so I had to hear Bruce Springsteen say, "Coming to town-Coming to town-Coming to town-over and over again. The man in front of me was on some mission to collect bizarre and very hard to find stamps....DO THAT IN JANUARY!!!!!! It sucked. Ho ho ho...sorry. I'll cheer up.

Tis the season! I HATE the post office this time of year and I always end up there with three kids in tow and someone who wants to be my new BFF in front of me telling me about their son serving a mission in Korea blah blah blah. So sorry for your loss!

I think you need to listen to Felix Navidad and that just might send you right over the edge. I suggest Valium next time you venture off to the post office.

I too miss good old "Postal Solutions"....though it was a running family joke that with a name like that it should have been a gun shop for postal workers....not to promote violence or anything....have you experienced the Post Nazi yet? It's just like on Seinfeld....if you don't have your package prepared with all of the correct forms....it's "NO MAIL FOR YOU!"....yikes I'm dreading going...I try to space it so I don't end up in his line...but it never works....please pray for me too.

Nothing sucks the Christmas spirit right out of ya like a long line and bad customer service. A lady cut in line at Michaels yesterday and I nearly flew into a rage! I try my best to avoid the post office, but what can you do.

Man, do I hate the post office... I have successfully been able to avoid it for a while since I discovered click-and-ship on USPS.com. Just weigh your package, print the postage thing and stick it on, then let your mail carrier pick it up! It is a beautiful service...

Hope Christmas finds a way to be merry around this "AWFUL" loss!
