"....smiling face at the post office......"
I don't want to call you an out and out liar, but are you sure it was a smiling face? At the post office?

Perhaps they just learned that they had been accepted by the TSA for a new position at the airport and they would be leaving the post office.
I think, per capita, there are more killings at US post offices than at US airports. I may be wrong.

God, I crack myself up! <img src="images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

May have just been early enough in the day that the Pax hadn't worn off yet. I believe that gov't workers get double the dose that the rest of us get.

Hi Skater,

Yep, believe it or not...I found one. Actually I was the cause of the grin. One of the two boxes that I sent had been sealed with regular .5" scotch tape >no this is NOT acceptable to the USnail folks LOL< Hey, it was all I had at the time...anyway, when I asked if she had any "REGULATION TYPE POST OFFICE APPROVED SHIPPING" tape, she said sure but they charge for it. So a whole $1.37 later she taped it up some more. There was some small talk repartee regarding me having had a "blond moment" when wrapping it (and yes, I have the appropriate color hair <img src="images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" /> ).

Side note:
Regarding the rather common post office perception, my understanding having attended some rather interesting violence free workplace training sessions is that actually the post office has really gotten on board with the program and performed a pretty solid 180 degree turnaround regarding such stuff. I think that they actually were noted in some journals as "best practices". At least, that is what we were told in the class.

Of course, it is possible that miniMe's take on it in the posting (after yours just above) might also apply as well, or perhaps all the the planets were in the needed alignment at the time. <img src="images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

Good summary!
Thanks for sharing the experience.
Now, if someone only had a similar experience at the DMV.......

I just picked this up at my local Library. I do not need this one, so on to the next in line (if there is one).

I am about half way through and I think this is a very good book so far.
