Post office rant
Friday, January 31, 2020
Last Monday I mailed a box of yarn to a friend who is going through a rough time financially.
She lives in New Mexico.
The clerk at the post office looked at the address and asked the other agent as to which forms she needed to fill out. yes.. she believed that New Mexico was not part of the United states
After he gave her a look like are you for real. he reminded her that New Mexico was part of the US. Even customers in the library gave her the look like you really do not know that is a state, especially with a us zipcode.
So she weighed it and I almost fainted when she told me the 11 pound box would cost 49.30 but it would be there by Wed, two days later. It was going by priority mail
I let the person know and she was looking out for it. It never got there.
we started tracing it. Today she went to her post office in New Mexico
the box is in Austin TX. It will not make it to New Mexico until Monday.. a week after being mailed
Why so long.. because the clerk here in SC charged me for priority but forgot to put on the priority mail stickers on the box
