The post office during the weekend before Christmas is a sight to behold. The line goes out the door, and it's full of people who look impatient and aggravated for no other reason than they're there. And when they get to the front of the line one encounters people who apparently have never mailed anything in their entire lives. I swore I heard one person ask the clerk if they really needed an envelope to mail something.
I give post office employees all the credit in the world, and I especially appreciate the workers at my local branch. I'm there so often (with orders from you fine and generous folks) that they know me by name and are always genuinely chipper. I'm the only person I know who actually looks forward to standing in line at the post office.
Just a reminder that this is the last week of comics for 2010. The last comic will be on Friday and it will resume on Monday, January 3rd. My own little winter break.
That's all from me for now.
