The Postal Service

I have to admit, I am not usually a big fan of the good ol’ USPS, but today they went ahead and out did themselves. Yesterday at work we got a letter from USPS that they will now allow us to order stamps by fax. I thought back at all the times I have stood in line, for what seemed like hours, at the post office just to take care of something that took, at most, 30 seconds. So I thought I would give them a try and order by fax. They even guaranteed that if your order was placed by 5 pm it would be there by 5 pm the next day! The NEXT day! So I faxed in my order at 4:45 pm yesterday and thought, “I wonder when my stamps will actually arrive. Probably like the cable guy…at the last minute!” And ya know what? They just got here! And its only 11:25 am. (It was even hand delivered.) That means I actual received my stamps in time to use them today! Low and behold, God must work at the post office, ’cause this is a miracle!

Ass out of you and me

I hate it when people assume things. Why, oh why, would you want to go and do something silly like that? Don’t people remember that silly little song about assuming? “When you assume, you make an ass out of you and me” Ya know, cause its ass-u-me? Brother, people get a clue.
