1. Are you familiar with the “Soup N.azi” from Seinfeld? The clerk at the post office today was totally channelling him. I accidentally got there 20 minutes before it opened (I thought it opened at 9, but it didn’t until 9:30). It wasn’t worth my time to go home and come back, so I was #2 in line. 10 minutes before the place opened, he came out and made sure everyone had all their correct forms filled out. Then he pointed to the sign that said “Please stand here until the clerk calls you” (or words to that effect) and told us to make sure we obeyed the sign. He opened the gate and then called the first person. When she was done, he continued doing stuff. I made sure to stand by the line and wait ’cause I knew if I stepped forward too soon, it was going to be “no postage for you”.
2. When I got up to the counter, package 1 and package 2 – no problems. Package 3 had liquids in it. He asked what liquids and I (idiot that I am) said Beer. He said, sorry no postage for you. In my head I’m thinking, “did I say beer? I meant NONALCOHOLIC beer”. Instead, I then took that package to Staples and mailed it UPS.
3. Next errand was to pick up coffee for the preschool Christmas party. I order, pay and go shop, telling them I’ll pick it up at 11:30. I go back at 11:20 and the guy tells me “sorry, we have no lids”. HUH? So, my next stop was Dunkin’ Donuts…
I hope all of your errands have gone more smoothly than mine did today.
