At the Post Office3 Mar 2017 / Paul Epps
It’s Wednesday afternoon at 4:30 PM . . . I’m trying to overnight some documents to Reno, NV.
“They won’t get there tomorrow,” I’m informed. “It’s too late. They’ll get there on Friday before noon. So if you don’t want to spend 23 dollars for Express Mail, you can send them Priority Mail for 6 dollars.”
“Will 6 dollars guarantee that they arrive on Friday?”
“No, no guarantee.”
“OK then I have to go with the 23 dollar option. And by the way, why can’t you get documents to Reno by tomorrow? I could personally deliver them to Reno by tomorrow and it’s not even my job.”
