I went in to mail a couple of books and was surprised to find a long line of people all shipping boxes!  I thought the day after Christmas would be slow but I guess there are no slow days at the post office.

Our post office said that many people waited until after Christmas to send their Christmas packages.  I guess they figured that they could avoid the huge rush if they did so.

I've found that a considerable percentage of my customers at the PO the week after the holidays are mailing back the phone chargers, scarves, wallets, sex toys,and other paraphenalia their guests left behind.

Sex toys?  If a guest left behind that at my house they would be picked up with rubber gloves and thrown out.  LOL

It was dead? Did you call the authorities? Was there any evidence of foul play, or did it appear to be natural causes? Had rigor mortis set in? What am I saying, it's the post office, rigor mortis set in decades ago!

I went by the post office on my way home from work and saw the line to the door...about 10-15 people.  That is alot for our post office and I thanked my lucky stars I had no reason to go in there!

I went today around 9:45 and there were a few people but not many.  I only stood in line because I had to mail some books to Germany.
