Everyone has heard the ol’ adage that “the Post Office sucks.” It’s a tale as old as time.
I feel like usually it’s because we’ve become accustomed to the immediacy of the internet. If I want to send someone a picture, BOOM, I snap a picture
of my nuts and BANG it’s sent across to world (you know… if I had friends across the world). With traditional mail, things require a few more steps. 50 cent stickers, mailboxes, actual delivery, etc. It’s a whole thing.
But this latest TRAVESTY by the US Postal Service needs to be addressed, and it has NOTHING to do with how slow things move in real life, and not over the magical airwaves that are the internet.
Peep friend of the site Richie’s latest Instagram post:
I GET that the mailman has no clue what’s in the package (or that anyone is watching)… I GET that. But have some respect, man! Not just for your job, but for the person getting this!
What if this package was a sentimental family heirloom and he just hucked it like it was no big deal?? WHAT THEN, HUH?!
I mean… He literally throws it on the ground the way you throw laundry on a bed. EXCEPT THIS WAS A NINTENDO SWITCH HE WAS THROWING, NOT CLOTHES THAT CAN’T BREAK… AND THOSE WERE STONE STAIRS, NOT A GODDAMN SOFT BED!!
I am probably getting more fired up about this than I need to. I’ve never had my issues with the Post Office, certainly not the sort of issues others have had, but this kinda stuff just can’t fly. As a member of the media, I knew I needed to shine a light on this.
Richie said it best, shout-out to the packaging by Nintendo and Target, because if this was any bit fragile, that thing was SHOT.
I didn’t wake up this morning thinking I’d be taking down the Post Office but here we are!
USPS? More like “U suck penis, stupid!”
