So, am I the only one who makes way too much use of the USPS Automated Postal Center machines?
I love those things... I can go in at 3 in the morning to drop off the books we've sold via half.com/amazon marketplace, and not have to stand in line or wait for the one clerk in the post office to go into the back for a long period of time to go file the last customer's parcels into the right bin before being available to serve anyone else... or, heaven forbid, the infamous "oops, the only clerk here has to go take a bathroom break... everyone has to leave now no matter how long you were in line."
There's just one thing that bugs me though... why are they only in post offices? It seems like the things could be easily placed in a supermarket, convenience store, etc. The largest part of the setup seems to be the giant blue drop box that sits next to it.
Strange. Ah well, it's USPS, one must simply be glad when they get your parcel shipped out in a fairly reasonable time. (Yes, I've dealt with lost mail drama before, WHARRGARBL.)
Now, where'd I put that photo? Somewhere I have a photo of where I lined up all my outgoing mail for one night down the concourse inside the Ludlam Road post office, and it stretched about 75% the length of the office. Teehee... EPIC MAIL.
