The Post Office Let Me Down in My Time of Need

Post Office

February 1, 2014– Dear my most beloved Secret Diary.  I like the folks at our neighborhood post office, and they always do a nice job.  However during my visit there the other day, they let me down in my time of need.

The temperature was in the mid-teens, but the wind-chill made it feel ten degrees cooler.  Also, I was thirsty.  When it was my turn, the woman behind the counter and I exchanged words:

Woman: How can I help you?

Me: I’d like a hot chocolate.

She laughed.

Woman: I can’t help you with that.  But there is a Dunkin Donuts down the block where you can get one.  Bring me back one will yah?

Bummer…but I’d like to think if I wasn’t late to meet somebody, I would have done just that and helped her (and me) out in our time of need!
