Breakin' up is hard to do.

Sunday I took the plunge and finally bought myself a mail scale. I've been thinking about this for a few weeks. I know that come December I won't feel like making the time for the daily post office run (I'm thinking positively that I'll have orders to mail every day), nor will I feel like lengthening my walk to work once it turns bitter cold.

I was dragging my feet a little though because I really like going to the post office. This made me wonder, has anyone else who bought a mail scale had the feeling that they were breaking up with their postal worker? Last week when I was there, I felt like telling him "It's not you, it's me. It's nothing you've done, I just outgrew our relationship. I hope we can still be friends. I'll still stop in every now and then for stamps."

And, like all break ups, today when I weighed my first package, printed out the label and shipped out that first package, I had the feeling that I should have done this months ago.


  1. Yes! They all know me by name and would help me out so much. Now I'm closer to my home mailman...and UPS guy...and Fedex guy...

    I do go in to the post office once in a while but click and ship saves me so much time!!!

  2. You are too funny... love the last comment/observation. Thanks for your fb note about the granola "first one's free"... we were away and running around last weekend but I got a laugh out of that. miss you!

  3. did you know that you can schedule your carrier to pick up your package? you can have a new relationship with that carrier!

    my carrier switches all the time and none of them ever talk to me. the perils of living in a big city.
