I rescued my package today from the evil clutches of the Post Office. I drove by on Tuesday and it didn't look terribly packed but unfortunately the parking lot is an illusion because its about 4 times the size of the post office. I walked in and the line was to the door. I may have cursed a little more loudly than under my breath and turned around and walked out. So today I set out with a plan. I left the office at 11 am to beat the lunch crowds. The line was not quite to the door today but it was still about 10-15 deep with 1 postal worker. There were six (I counted) counters but only one worker who was also handling the drive through.
I waited 10 minutes while she helped a woman who was apparently shipping each and every thing she owned individually around the country. Finally a man in the back office got off the phone and came up front and said he could help those that only needed to pick up a package. I got to be third in line in his line. By the time I walked out 20 minutes into my visit the original postal worker was on her second person in line. No lie. That is ridiculous.
It was worth it though. My winnings are fabulous ....
