I just saw a miracle

I just saw a miracle.

It’s lunchtime in the city.

It’s two weeks before Christmas.

There was no queue at the post office.

How is this possible?

Maybe it was a hallucination.

Maybe everyone’s paid there bills already? I swear that’s the only thing I ever see at a post office, old people paying bills. They need a line for postal things, and a line for ‘everything else’. No… it’s not a touchy subject for me at all.

I got 4 Xmas stamps on Wednesday (at P.O. in Bourke St, near Russell St) and there was no queue either. I was amazed. The woman tried to sell me a book of 20 Xmas stamps, I said I didn’t have that many friends!

Well I nicked up to the postoffice on my break and it was like it was lunchtime , the queues were near the door, that was Collins street opposite AXA. Lucky you!

I will have to get $100 worth of stamps to go with my 100 photo mailing envelopes (I use them to send out CDs) so I can stop having to queue up. The best part was when I bought them on a Saturday the head worker at my local post office got her assistants to stamp all the envelopes so I don’t have to say if I bought them EVERY TIME I go to pay for postage.

No such luck at my post office. I go in every few days and this year seems worse than last even. I can’t see that many people sending prezzies though, which is what you would expect. Just bills and more bills. I guess they are prezzies for some in a way.
