Just Say It

The US Postal Service is still one of the best deals around.
For 41 cents they’ll carry your letter around for weeks and weeks.

A woman took a package to the post office to mail
and was told it would cost $2.40 for fast delivery or
$1.30 for slower service.
“There is no hurry,” she told the clerk,
“just so the package is delivered in my lifetime.”
The postmaster glanced at her and said,
“That will be $2.40, please.”

 A woman went to the Post Office to buy stamps for her Christmas Cards. “What denomination?” asked the clerk. “Oh, good heavens! Have we come to this?” said the woman. “Well, give me 30 Catholic, 10 Baptist ones, 20 Lutheran, and 40 Presbyterian.”

I remember when the Postal workers started a slow-down strike
for a pay raise.
They had to call it off — nobody noticed.

Rejected Post Office Slogan Ideas

  • We know where you live.
  • You work hard so we don’t have to.
  • Attitude shmattitude.  Shut up and get out.
  • We do more by 10pm than most people do all day.
  • Lick it, stick it and kiss it goodbye

Why am I frustrated with the Post Office again? Well, I hand delivered straight to their counter a change of address form. They have yet to forward my mail. That was March 17th. Uh – two weeks ago!

I sent my mom an original Wedgwood piece for her birthday. The box was marked “fragile” and “insured”. Uh – they broke it! Seriously, they had to have smashed it with a ball bat or a hammer or run over it with a semi truck. Idiots!
