Free Stamp

January 14th, 2009 at 06:04 pm

I was second in line at the post office a few days ago behind a man with four large boxes asking too many questions. There were at least four people behind me. There are two windows in this post office but the one was "closed."

Before long, an older man appeared in the "closed" window and asked if anyone just needed to "pick something up." I said "I just need one stamp." He said "Ok."

I walked to the window and withdrew a five dollar bill from my purse. Upon seeing the five the man asked me "Is that all you have?" I said "Yea, I'm sorry." He said "Don't worry about it, I'll take care of the stamp." I thanked him over and over and walked out of the post office with a smile on my face! I have never had a free stamp before!

Hope everyone has a good night, I'm off to work.

    An occasion of potential frustration turns to a true gift from total stranger. PAY IT FORWARD and remember His presence is never ending. God bless and thanks for the post!

    Nice guy! And there are "free" stamps at Walgreen's with the coupon and a hallmark purchase this week. Not as fun as yours, but still....

    Wish he worked at our PO. Ours is staffed exclusively with nasty, rude, snippy people. I dread going there. I use the automated machine as much as possible, but you can't buy media mail postage there.

    I know, Disney Steve, I need a postal scale!

    I've been having to go to the post office more lately, and I've been pretty satisfied with the service. The odd thing I learned was that the workers have to buy and bring their own pens to work! It's kind of sad that the post office can't purchase pens for people to use!
