I was asked to ship Brandi's rather large collection of personal pleasure items to her after her move across the country. Today I finally ventured out to the post office. I get there and she has already boxed everything up and addressed it for me. (Such a good friend) However when I get to the counter the nice Post Office man hears a broken glass noise and suggests I open the box and make sure nothing is broken so they don't get blamed ect. Also he suggested that I switch boxes on one of the packages to save about $8. I really didn't want to because of the content of these and the hard time I have getting to the post office. However he pressured me about the "broken glass" and so I grabbed a flat rate box and scooted over to the side of the counter to switch everything out. All goes well until I bump the old box and knock it on to the floor, spraying the contents all over. Thankfully there were only the 2 employees and 1 other customer in the area. Totally heard the two employees chuckle at me. I did find out what was causing the "Broken Glass" noise.....A ben wa ball had escaped from its container and was rolling around the box.
When I went back up to the counter the man who had been helping me before told me, "Hunny don't be embarrised. I have worked for the Post Office for 31 years I have seen MUCH MUCH worse." I wish I had asked for a story....Oh well maybe next time.
What have we learned??
Always pack your personal items securely and before you get to the post office.
