I'm never moving out of Salem because I'm so lucky to have pleasant, informative postal workers who care about their jobs. My tri-weekly trips to the post office would be a total drag if everyone working behind the counter was a grump like I hear so many others are.
I've always thought they were nice but recently I realized that they are extraordinary! When dropping off a small bundle of my snail mailers, I was informed that I could save 30cents on each package by orienting my mailers horizontally instead of vertically (I can't say I completely understood her explanation of why.). My post woman had just learned this at a conference and thought of me! Her thoughtfulness will be saving me a bunch of money!
Her timing was perfect too. I was down to just a few more mailers and had 200 more on the way. I spent a few hours today printing my new envelopes horizontally and look forward to my reduced shipping cost.
I also printed up a ton of new iron on patches and many more pinback buttons. My arms are tired!
