I was back at the post office today for like the millionth time this fortnight. I hate the post office. Have I told you that before? I don’t think I have, but I do, it’s true. If there were a way I could pay a little extra to have someone fill out, pick up and send my parcels for me, that would be awesome. I’d avoid the place forever.
Why? I hear you asking.
Because it’s gross. Haha. Today someone literally sneezed on me. Sneezed. ON. Me. They turned away from the person in front of them and covered me in tiny particles of grossness that I feel like even if I bathe eight times tonight won’t come off. This is how Contagion starts. Ick. So if millions of people come down with a super bug you’ll know where to look. Start here folks, start here.
PLUS the last time I was there a young lady who should have been old enough to know better was telling off someone else’s kid in line. Yup. Someone else’s kid. Then she moved to the counter and told off the lady behind the counter. All I could think was that lady is WAY too young to be a grumpy old man. The post office, it takes all types…
And I don’t just hate getting sneezed on or the odd people, I hate going there. In Gympie, parking is basically impossible around the top end of the street where the post office lives so sometimes you have to do two or three laps before you can even get a park remotely close. Some days I just park half way down the street and loiter on up there because I’ve got a snowball’s chance in hell of getting any closer. Ridiculous. It’s frustrating and I don’t like it.
Do you know what my problem is? I love parcels. I get lots of them. You’d think the post shop folks and I would be besties… Nope. Well, not all of them love me, let’s just say THAT. Maybe they can sense my attitude towards the place but sheesh (I don’t get it, everyone likes me. Haha.). Actually, now I think about it, I’m not sure this post is going to help that situation at all… Awkward. Let’s pretend it never happened.
