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.
