When 'Change' is NOT good

You would think, wouldn't you, that the person who runs a post office (even a contracted post office- a satellite, if you will) would be kept informed of major changes in post office policy.

I would. I would think so. 
I expect so.   (note to self: must lower expectations.) 

And I'm wrong.

Can you believe I walked into work today (I was off yesterday; I might have found out a day sooner), to find that the postage rates have increased???

NOBODY could pass the word to me????


(Now before anybody panics**- the first class rate is still 42c. It's the Priority rate, flat rate, and International rate that has changed. To what? HellifIknow!)
**notice how I admirably avoided using the phrase 'goes postal' there. I get points for that.

So, I'm off to the USPS website, where the contracted employees go to find out how to send mail....
I like to memorize the rates BEFORE a change. So I'm a little miffed.

  1. I know exactly how you feel! I work for a major cruise line and we are the last to know when a major sales event is going on...imagine our red faces when someone asks us about something we should have known before the public was informed! Oh well, it's not life and death, at least I don't think it is :-)

    Have a better day, Marisa...and smile, smile, smile! :-)
