I went yesterday around 11:15am - I went with my husband - who has zero 'wait capacity'. He flipped out. So we left and I went back around 1pm. The line was 20 deep. Now there were four workers there and I thought it would go fast - although the post office, now that I think about it, NEVER goes fast.
When the clerks walk - you ever notice they walk so slow - they are never in a hurry - they never look stressed. Almost every job I've ever worked at - I've always had to work fast!
Well it took me 40 minutes. Just as I got 'up next' 2 clerks went to lunch and I waited another 10 minutes being first in line. So close and so far away.
My question is this - why or how do they move so slow? Is that a requirement of the job? Are they taught that in a class? Why not charge a little more - get more help - and make people happy with the post office so that is gets used more? Oh well - what do you think? Have you ever been to a fast post office? Inquiring minds want to know.
This is a cute little site - you type in the name of a Christmas song and the two little characters will sing it to you. Great for the grandkids.
Happy Birthday Deborah Sampson - who is Deborah Sampson?
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Deborah Sampson (December 17, 1760 - April 29, 1827) was the first known American woman to impersonate a man in order to join the Army. She gave her name as Robert Shurtliff, or Rob Shart, and successfully convinced the Uxbridge Seargent that she was a man in order to join the Continental Army near the end of the American Revolution.
You need to look her up and read the rest of the story.
