These are random moments in the life of an indecent designer and the city she loves.

If we think we're any better

forever, on and on...."

I am a female, carbon based lifeform.
I am a New York City Native.
I am a Design Professional.
I take photographs.
I also sculpt, paint, create mosaics, and play with weapons.

And sometimes, I even dance about Architecture.

Line at the post office. 15 people in front of me. Yay.

Oy. While there aren't any lines at the Almont post office, we are currently suffering a new postmistress who doesn't seem to know how to do anything.

It took me a half hour to claim the calendars and cranberries you sent me because she couldn't figure out how to enter some sort of code.

And they had no global priority envelopes. I have to order those *also*, now.

Oh great. Honestly, it makes you wonder what the hell the point of a post office is anymore. (Other than one giant annoyance factor.)

I have to say it just seems to be THIS post office. Castle Hill doesn't have these problems.

At this point it would be faster for me to mail you the envelopes, I swear. Even my lousy little post office has them. *sigh* I'm sorry.

I ordered them online, when I ordered the new batch of stamps. So they'll get here at the same time. Soon as the stamps arrive, I will go and send off the 34 I have packaged here, and take the global priority ones back to Kingsbridge.

It's really *not* the USPS in general. TBH, I find that the post office as a whole is pretty on the ball. And my personal postal carrier (Howie, who delivers to my building and lives in the building next door) is just fine. It's *this branch* of the post office, specifically with the problem.

not the point, it's extra hassle that you really don't need

I've largely just given up on using them for anything other than to drop off packages. I am ordering all my supplies online now. It may be just as frustrating, but it doesn't require me to stand on line to do it.

so you'll lose less time but get more electronic hassle

same amount of time. It's just how the time is spent. I'd rather wait for shipping (when I can do other things) than wait on line at the post office for them to tell me they don't have what I need anyway. Saves me a lot of frustration and at least I can use the time effectively by doing something else while I wait.
