The Post Office Around the Corner

Apparently it's cheaper to fedex your stuff from the post office than it is to take them to FedEx. I went to the local FedEx Kinko's this morning and was quoted a fare that ended up being twice as much as the local post office even though my stuff was riding with same carrier! I'm not sure why that is, though the lady at the post office tried to explain something about an agreement they have with FedEx over coverage or something. She was really nice. Actually, whenever I've had occasion to use the post office, I've always come away being impressed by how helpful and courteous the staff have been. Maybe there's something inherently salubrious about working there, an inhalant or something that slowly wafts out of those sheets of stamps and scents the atmosphere with cheer and goodwill. Or maybe they're just nice people.

Anyways, the moral of the story is: if you have to FedEx something, go to your friendly neighbourhood post office first.

Also, fedex does not deliver on saturday but post office does. I am still not sure, how fedex is still in business with such a mediocare service at such a high price. I love US postal service.

I think, the feeling of handling people's emotion face to face keep them humble.
