US Post office rant! Buckle up. [View all]

As I drove up to our local post office mid-morning today I the American and POW flags were out of order, with the POW flag above and the American Flag laying partially laying on the roof. I told the clerk who didn't give a rats ass. I put four packages on the counter and she informed us that she didn't have enough postage loaded in the machine to apply and suggested that I take the packages to the closet other post office 12 miles away. As I was walking out she said she just didn't have time to load the postage at that time.

Since I only live about two miles from the PO, I said I would come back later. At noon I called and she had postage loaded again, but she was about to close for lunch. At two, we drove back into town, carried the four packages back into the post office, and she told us that the internet was down, so she couldn't take them, and then she goes on to say that it had been down since early morning, which did not jive with the phone call before lunch; basically when I called at noon, she knew that she could not accept the packages...

I was miffed to say the least. I bit my lip and said nothing, but I was cussing a blue streak on the inside... but damn it, there is bad PO service and then there is this.
