The USPS seems to be able to make up the rules as they go along or according to the person working that day. Our small town post office always had a "local" box and an out-of town box. If you mailed something to your next door neighbor it would arrive the next day. Now they ship it 120 miles to be postmarked and then send it back (totalling 240 miles). It takes days to get to my next door neighbor now. How that is efficient is a mystery to me.

This is also the Post office that marked an item that DH ordered as delivered to front desk. Front desk? What front desk?! When DH asked about the front desk they went and searched the truck and found the missing item. The post master finally admitted the item had fallen down in between the seat of the truck,and since they weren't able to find it, they just marked it delivered to the front desk. The item had a value of over $50 and needless to say, we no longer trust the USPS!

Just a note that all stamps are now Forever Stamps, so if able, stocking up isn't a bad idea. I don't often go to the Post Office, but was there recently and bought beautiful, large Oscar de la Renta stamps that are patterned colors (from fabrics), pet stamps and a bunch of others that add to envelope design.

The postal clerk who helped me really got into showing me what they had when I told her I wanted nice stamps for cards I make. I'll have to bring/mail (?) them a card.
