Why in the name of God's green century didn't the lady at the Post Office tell me last Saturday when I was buying a booklet of twenty 39-cent that they are raising the cost AGAIN on this coming MONDAY? She spent a helluva long time urging me to select a stamp style that I would appreciate affixing. We even joked about how the Star Wars stamps aren't out yet and won't they be cool?
Could she not have just said, oh, you want some 2-centers to go with that booklet it'll take you four months to go through because you never mail anything the old way anymore?
I guess I'll be sending cards and rent checks at a hefty 78 cents per piece of mail all summer.
