Post Office

Postby Mookie4ever » Wed Jul 06, 2005 9:43 am

I was at the post office yesterday to buy some stamps. As always I had to wait in line. When it was finally my turn I asked for some stamps and the woman said that they were sold out. I laughed but she said that she was serious. My response was "but you're the post office...."

They were sold out of stamps and wouldn't have any until next week. I asked why they were even open and she said that they were accepting letters. I said "so you're like a mailbox? Maybe you could put a mailbox out front with a sign saying that you are sold out of stamps, come back next week. Then you could close up and save the taxpayers some money." Actually I just thought that, I didn't say it out loud.

The post office sucks.

I never get stamps at the post office anymore. The local grocery store sells them, so I don't have to wait in line and they are open later than 5 p.m.

i work at a grocery store, and we sell stamps as well... but alot of people must agree with ya pogo, because we sell about 200 books of stamps a week and the thing is there is a post office about 1/2 mile down the road........

The store hours are the main thing. By the time I get off work the Post Office is closed so I have to go during lunch or Saturday. I'm at the grocery store once a week anyway so I just get stamps there.

BTW - I find the idea of mailing stamps to be incredibly funny for some reason. :-b

Agreed. There's probably a lot of places that sell stamps that you don't realize. Here, the Ace hardware stores actually have a post office outlet right in their store. Grocery ands stationary stores sell them also.

Don't go...er...postal, man.

There is never a line at our post office. What do you need stamps for anyway? I use about one book a year.

I don't trust the security of any info I would provide to do online bill paying. I know too many people that could, but don't, hack into that stufff with terrifying ease.

A post office being out of stamps is like a grocery store out of food.

I need to send stuff by mail for work. People like getting hard copies of certain things, especially their bills.

I also buy them in rolls of 100. I tried buying them at the corner store and at the grocery store and I always get a dirty looks when I clean them out of all of their stamps. ;-)

The stupid post office has pissed me off so much that I think that I'll buy a stamp machine.
