To the editor:
I was in the Winslow post office today, and I was joined in line by a middle-aged man who loudly vociferated about his wait time, the office’s inefficiency, and blamed his current situation on “the government” and lazy clerks.
He suggested that someone should write a letter to the newspaper regarding this injustice.
On that note, I would like to personally thank the staff of the Winslow post office for their hard work and courteous demeanor, even during lunch-hour rush the day after a postal holiday.
I would also like to acknowledge that the post office has been systematically neglected by an ever-increasing push towards privatization of our public framework. I would like to apologize on behalf of full-grown men who act as petulant as a sullen teenager when they have to wait in line (just like the rest of us).
As a citizen, I appreciate our libraries, schools, sidewalks, roads and even our under-staffed post office. Thanks!
