Against All Odds: Postal Update
Things are looking up at the post office! The government must have kicked down some cash, because when I went to rent my post office box yesterday, the place was abuzz with construction and renovation: new paint, welding on the front gate, new light fixtures, and new hardwood cubicles for the workers. (See pic.) The process of renting a PO Box was a little slow, and the postal worker kid made my change out of his own pocket. Worse, the whole bureaucratic apparatus of the post office, including the ledger books showing whose box is whose, all the receipts, all the records of all financial transactions, are sitting in a box on the counter within arm's reach of anyone who might care to steal it.
But I have faith that this is going to work! And hey, the box only cost me $750 LD for life, or about 9 bucks.
Cheese Shop moment:
PO: “What size box do you want?”
LL: “I don’t know. Umm, small?”
PO: “We don’t have small.”
LL: “What sizes do you have?”
LL: “I guess I will take a medium one.”
Confound the cynics! Send us a letter!
