Snail mail doesn't pay
I received a notice in the mail today that my mailman tried to deliver a package but it has insufficent postage. I will need to go and bail the package out of mail jail and post bail of $1.30. This is the first time in my 27 years on earth that I have had to go pay extra postage to bail out a package. I don't really care so much about the $1.30 but I do care that I will have to waste no telling how long standing in line at our notoriously slow post office to get the package. On freaking tax day no less. Only one of the busiest mailing days of the year. Of course I won't actually be available to drive over to our post office tomorrow because I have an appointment scheduled during lunch so I will have to wait until Wednesday. It does not say how long the post office will hold the package. Grrr....the U.S. Postal system sucks. That is my 2 cents for the day or my $1.30 in this case.
