Postal Robot of the Year

11:37 enter the Post Office.

Postal Worker: How can I help you today?
Anna: I just need to mail this, cheap.
PW: Anything breakable?
A: No.
PW: Perishable, Contaminated or Otherwise Unstable?
A: No.
PW: Would you like it to have it delivered guaranteed by 3pm tomorrow afternoon for only $27.60?
A: Ha, no. Cheap.
PW: Next down the line is Priority for $4.95 that will get your package there in the next 2 - 3 days.
A: (Annoyed) No. Cheap.
PW: Well, your only option then is first class for $1.85.
A: I'll take it.
PW: It won't get there until Friday.
A: That's fine. (Isn't Friday in about 2 to 3 days?)
PW: Could go quicker with the other options.
A: No thanks. Friday is fine.
PW: Do you need a receipt of delivery letting you know exactly what time it was delivered and who signed for it?
A: No.
PW: Would you like to insure your package?
A: No. (Good grief!)
PW: Any other stamps or supplies?
A: Not today.
PW: Any Readi-Post envelopes for your next mailing?
A: (WTF???) NO.
PW: Okay then, one package going first class. Is that all?
-- Silence as rings up my big purchase --
PW: Thank you.
A: Thank you - have a nice afternoon.
PW: (Stares blankly)
A: (I think he's a robot.)

Leave branch at 11:44.
