Dear Post Office Employee,
It’s obvious you’re new, and want to do a “good job” serving the esteemed clients of the Canada Post Corporation. But there is a fine line between good service, and overbearing. Also, if it takes you triple the time it takes most other employees to provide the same service – your service ceases to be good.
Case in point: If the gentleman who’s obviously in a hurry says to you “put it in whatever envelope fits, and get it there as soon as possible” he really means for you to do just that. Not go over the merits of different kinds of shipping containers he can purchase, or various options for getting it there (only one of which is actually the fastest). I’m sure he, and the rest of the patrons in line, would really appreciate it if you would just grab the goddamn envelope that fits and send the thing express post so he can get the fuck outta there.
Also, a few tips for you (since you’re obviously new at this):
-yes, I do track my packages and know when they arrive.
-yes, I can claim a package without the mailbox slip if I present my photo ID
-yes, you can search for my package using either my name or delivery address. Your colleague (who so unfortunately had gone home for the day), whom I spoke to earlier, did just that to confirm that my package was indeed in your possession.
I know you witnessed the supervisor you finally called for help do all of the above in a matter of moments, but I just wanted to make sure you understood that you can do it yourself when I need to pick up another parcel, so I don’t have to stand around and look at posters of stamps for 10 minutes while you pull your head out of your ass.
p.s. In the future, we’d also all appreciate a little less turtle, a little more hare, if you know what I mean. I know slow and steady wins the race and all that – but this isn’t a race, and next time you might just be a first-hand witness to what it means for someone to really “go postal.”
