There’s an old Shakespeare quote: “Some are born great, some achieve greatness, some have greatness thrust upon them.
We’ve been wrangling with the post office this week. Two families have been receiving mail here for the last ten months. A change of address form was submitted last week for three people. That leaves three people still getting mail here.
Except someone at the post office decided to have all the mail with this address forwarded out of state.
That included some things Stud Muffin and I had ordered.
It took a trip to the post office and multiple calls to find out our mail was on its way to Idaho. A state I’ve never visited, by the way. But my new underwear, ordered from Amazon, will have visited!
The post office has become such a source of derision and frustration, that I wondered today:
Does the United States Post Office seek to hire apathetic jerks who don’t give a rip? Or do they hire hard working, conscientious people and train them to become apathetic jerks who don’t give a rip?
In other words, was the post office born incompetent, did it achieve incompetence, or did it have incompetence thrust upon it?
Has it grown too large to sustain itself?
I don’t know the answers to any of that. I just know that before my underwear is ever worn, it will have traveled more this summer than I did.
