Only in small towns

My town is small enough, and the people who work here are regular enough, that everyone knows me at least by sight. This is especially true in the post office.

I showed up at the post office today just before they were scheduled to close. I had three small boxes and two large ones. And while I was waiting my turn, one of the postal delivery people called with some kind of emergency and the post-people had to close the office. Sandy's solution to the dilemma of what to do with my un-processed five boxes was to have me leave my stuff and my cell number for them to do when they get back. So I left her a card with my cell number and instructions for shipping and $100 in cash. When they get back to the office and process my boxes, she will call me so that I could stop by for my change and my receipt.

Gotta love small towns sometimes.

ETA: She called and said that Gretchen had an envelope with my receipt/delivery confirmation and cash, and that I could either swing by the office or Gretchen would drop off the envelope at our mutual convenience.
