Yes, iPhone in my purse, but no coop. In order to postal mail a box Priority Snail mail through the post office, certain rules must be followed. No way- a woman has a pencil in her purse. Nada- not, no pen. Need to be one in my car- I then perform various contortions, looking under all the seats in search of the single Bic… no luck. Absolutely I can borrow a pen from someone inside the Post Office – I am talking about, all we are talking about is a pen, right?

All works well at the Postal office shooting kiosk- transaction goes effortlessly and the label to “middle of nowhere” styles somewhat flawlessly with take care of what it got to offer. I put together the Priority Snail mail box- adhesive strip works like a charm- now all I need is a pen.

I stand in the alcove looking around, hoping someone will ask if I need some help. No such luck- everyone is scurrying in and out- with determined looks, destinations in mind. I tell me personally I am not going out of this post office because I do not have a pen. I take a deep breath. The outdoors entry door opens, a nice looking lady strolls in. I ask her if I could get cash a pen. She appears at me like We are a loon. We back away, ashamed. We continue doing this scenario again with the same outcome.

I actually look inside the internal portion of the PO – the line to the front is 20 deep. I do not mind browsing the collection. I just feel absurd standing in it only to ask if I actually could borrow a pencil. Ah, I spot an older “friendly looking” man standing at the central working counter writing something- USING A PEN. My plan was going to maintain back, wait until this individual finished, then ask to borrow his pen for simply a second. I patiently lay, he wrote, I patiently lay, he kept writing, and writing and writing- an endless speel of who knows what. I get away from this plan.

I look up- all those in the line are looking at me- daring me personally to jump ahead in line. Talk about a large group mentality. I take another deep breath, walk finished to the counter, assertively asking your mailbox member of staff if I could acquire a pen. She smiled and handed me the treasured object. By then I used to be so anxious my handwriting was shaky- We wondered if the snail mail carrier could discern the numbers. I handed the pen back, thanking her profusely.

I left the post office inner recess averting the eyes of the people in the line. I quickly opened up the outer door and walked briskly to my car. Only once i was properly in my vehicle would I realize I still had the package beside me! Ready to just ignore it, I made me get from the vehicle.

I actually walked back in the post office to place the now fully labeled bundle in the mail office. Clank! No surprise here. The kiosk is locked. This usually occurs it is full. What this means is Let me have to walk into the lining post office area again handy deliver the package to the leading sales person.
