So I had to make a trip to the post office today for the first time. I am so glad that the other day Denny talked to us about how it generally works, otherwise I would have shown up CLUELESS!So, when you walk in there’s a ticket dispensing machine you have to use. It reminds me of when you go to the DMV and take a ticket to be served.Well…this machine has 3 different types of services. You have to press one of three buttons for the type of service you need. One is for mailing envelopes and packages, and I don’t remember what the others are for. Luckily I knew to look for this because he told us. I chose the correct ticket category – hooray! I was able to figure that part out.
When your number is up, you’ll see it displayed on a board, and it tells you which booth to go to. I was being sly trying to snap this photo. I think someone saw me but oh well. 😉 At this point I’m used to people looking at me. Also, one big difference is that the post offices here don’t have packing supplies (like boxes, envelopes, etc.) like our USPS does. Darn.
