Today, however, I was treated to a very nice surprise. I had to run to the Post Office to mail off some Christmas goodies. I got there just before the door opened. About 30 people had the same idea I did, get there early. I was a little nervous thinking, "this is going to take forever." With only three clerks working the counter, I was certain my fears would be realized.
12 minutes later, I'm out the door. My transaction, as well as the 20 or so folks in front of me, was complete!
