I went to the post office this morning to mail Athens Middle School Cross County gear to my entire family. Doug was working. Doug is always working. Doug does not make small talk. He does not smile. He didn’t smile before masks either. Doug is the postal worker who really will make you sign your credit card before he will process it, even if you’ve used it unsigned for years across this entire continent and Europe; Doug is not impressed.
But let me tell you: Doug will get you the most timely, cost-efficient prices for your packages. Sometimes it’s first-class, sometimes it’s priority mail. Doug is savvy to the nuances of our mail delivery system, and he will navigate them with you. And that’s something, even if he forgot to ask if I needed any stamps today.
