The folks at the satellite post office I use are always happy
to see me walk in the door, pkg ready to go & check made out for
the correct amount.
You know, you don’t even have to go to the Post Office for this,
either! I haven’t done it since I have a convenient P.O. right around
the corner, but there is a toll-free number you can call to arrange
for a pick up of Priority (2-3 day) and Express (overnight) mail. I
guess you’d have to pay the carrier with cash or check? I haven’t
approached my regular letter carrier to see if he’ll take them on his
daily rounds, but have been thinking about exploring the possibility.
On the other hand, a quick trip to the post office gets me off the
Sebaste Compound (estate?) for a break and a change of scenery. If
its around lunchtime I might even treat myself to a case of
indigestion from Taco Hell.
With the ebb and flow of service quality from the various carriers
available, I’m currently most happy with the reliability, cost
effectiveness and (for me) convenience of the postal service. As with
all things, this is subject to change without notice.
