Going to the post office works one of two ways for me, without fail. I’m curious to know if this is the case for anyone else too!
Why I Don’t Like The Post Office
I walk up to the counter with the address & items in my hand. I tell the staff member where I want to send it & how soon.
The staff member sighs and waves theirs hand towards the wall of differently sized envelopes & gives you a look as if to say “Sort your shit out yourself, woman”, followed by begrudging advice on what size to buy.
They tell you to go pick it up, fill in the address details and queue back up to pay for it and get the stamps.
I dutifully look at all the envelopes and choose the one I think suits the speed and size of the item I am mailing. I write the address on the envelope and take it up to the counter to pay for it and the postage. I get up there and they go “Why did you choose this? This other one would be cheaper and does the same thing”. I tell them I guessed. They tell me to just come up to the counter first next time and they’ll help me. See scenario one.
Please tell me this doesn’t only happen to me! I literally alternate what I do and this happens almost every single time.
What am I supposed to do?! What is the proper post office etiquette?
