As winter approaches and the holiday season nears, I want to say a word about the post office, the U.S. Post Office that is. Every year, I hear all this guff about long lines, surly clerks, and delayed packages. Item one: how long have we known Christmas will come on December 25? All our lives, right? So, why wait to mail when you know the score. Item two: what attitude do you take into the post office? Whose problem is it that everyone wants to express love and caring during the holidays?
