Signed, sealed and (hopefully) delivered...

I sent off my package today for the Dog Days of Summer Swap.

I knew my box had to go out today ...

I didn't even bother with the local post office (Barnum) cause...they are NEVER open ...seriously...someone should tell them who is serving whom...so, went to the next town (Carlton)...about 10 miles away...well...NOT even open on Saturday morning...What the Hell???...

Drive to the next town (Cloquet - another 7 miles further)...WEll...it's 11:36 and they closed at 11:30...Shit! ...Now I am getting a little miffed...What's with these Postal workers not working Saturdays!!???...

Original plan for the day involved a trip to Duluth to pick up paint for Nathan's bedroom project - so..

Before I could go any further North...I needed to go back 20 miles South to pick Him up...

Then go 45 miles North again...Duluth post office closed at 1:00 - we made it there at 12:55....And...the package is on it's way...

Seriously...what's up with the post office hours????

If I were you I would be asking, "Why don't any of you have a self-serve station?" I love the self-serve option at our post office down here in Sountern MN, Rochester. I use it even when the regular windows are open. I can get done so much faster than standing in line, and it is open 24/7!
