Can't Believe What I Heard from a Little Old Lady Today!Submitted by MindUrBusiness on Mon, 03/04/2013 - 17:13
So I went to the post office today in my little town to handle some mailing for my business. While filling out an express mail ticket I'm listening to a nice elderly lady talking to the post master about the USPS changes. Recently they sent out a letter to everyone in town and probably other towns as well that had multiple choice questions. The questions we along the lines of "should we close down your post office and contract out the mail delivery?" or "should we discontinue Saturday delivery and window service or contract it out?" and some other questions. Anyway, she tells the postmaster she wrote on the questionnaire that "they should leave the post office alone and keep it the way it is now." He tells her he agrees but thinks they won't count her questionnaire because she didn't choose from the list of questions.
Well, then out of nowhere she gets angry loud and says; "They should be following the Constitution!", "I used my freedom of speech when I wrote that on the questionnaire and by god they should honor that!" The postmaster agrees, then she says; "That's whats wrong with this country anymore, they don't care about the Constitution, or follow the Constitution anymore!"
Well, I can't tell you how happy I was to know that a 75+ year old, someones grandma knew what was wrong in this country and wasn't afraid to come out and yell it right there in the post office. I totally agreed with her as she passed by for the door.
