"The Post Office Blues" is what you'd have had, if you'd been behind us today, on Mattis Avenue. No reservations, no appointments (we checked), we had no choice but to just show up with boxes.
Channel 3 was there. I interviewed with them on Saturday, feeling mighty and confident, only to get this feedback: "You acted nervous." Said feedback made me feel shy and embarrassed, so I sent Jeff to TV duty, this time. He was energetic, enthusiastic, and definitely the man for the job. I'd have been more nervous about not asking nervous.
For the record, it takes 2 hours for one postal clerk to check in, stamp, check customs forms, and calculate the cost of sending this many boxes. Sincere apologies to the guy behind us that wanted to buy one stamp, but had to wait for another window.
