    USPS Follies . . .

    I picked up a package from the post office this morning and asked them, when they handed it to me, whether it had been used for soccer practice. I got a shrug and the stink eye from someone who looked like Newman from Seinfeld. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3zG_PN31YJU http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cJtaV...eature=related

    I suppose that the stamp should have read: PERISHABLE LIVE PLANTS: KEEP FROM HEAT OR COLD OR THE THREAT DISPLAYS OF LOWLAND GORILLAS.

    Too expensive already, I suppose. Too wordy.

    The plant, miraculously enough, was fine . . .

    Well, it doesn't say "FRAGILE - HANDLE WITH CARE"

    USPS treats me pretty well, surprisingly. The box of rock I got for my fish tank from UPS was beat up, but probably because the rock was unsecure. However, the one thing that happened with the USPS, actually today:
    So, the mailman came to my door and I thought it was my mom so when he knocked I knocked back in a mimicy way. And on top of that I was breaking in my school shoes(dress shoes) With giant crew socks while wearing shorts.

    Even if it didn't say that, it should never be that bad.

    Good thing the plants made it O.K.
