True Stories

Comical Adventure at the Post Office

After waiting 30 minutes in line, this is an actual conversation I had with a clerk at the Burbank Post Office.

Clerk: You want that to arrive overnight?

Me:  No, I just want it sent Media Mail, no bells or whistles.

Clerk:  Anything liquid?

Me:  It’s a book.

Clerk:  Toxic?

Me:  It’s a book.

Clerk:  Live animals?

Me:  Do you have a dictionary behind the counter?

Clerk:  Media Mail could take 7 to 10 days.

Me:  Don’t care.

Clerk:  Insurance?

Me:  No thank you, just Media Mail.

Clerk:  Confirmation of delivery?

Me:  Nope, just plain old Media Mail.

Clerk:  You sure you don’t want insurance or confirmation of delivery?

Me:  Very.

Clerk:  What if it gets lost?

(Silent)

Me:  I’ll assume you had something to do with it.
