Last Friday I posted about a failed trip to the post office. It drew a fairly high number of comments for a non-contest blog (for me anyway). First, I'd like everyone to know that I did make it back to the post office on Friday and I was second in line. I only had 6 packages going out so it wasn't too bad, but by the time I finished, there were 8 people in line behind me. Irritated people. Oh well, I'm sorry, but those are your tax dollars at work. Hopefully, there will be 6 happy people today or within a day or two. You know, when they get their packages.
I wanted to comment on some of the comments from that post.
I used to live at that automated machine Jeremy and Beardy mentioned. Then they took it out of the big post office. "They", you know who I'm talking about, said it was gone for good. What? Now I have to wait in line like everone else?!?! Seriously, that is about the time I stopped selling on Ebay. I took my 660 positive feedbacks and went home. Plus I was sick and tired of putting up auctions...every day...going to the post office. Sick of it. I was never going to do that again. Ummm....yea, it's not like posting every day or going to mail trade packages almost every day. It's not...because I said it's not.
My new little post office doesn't have the automated machine OR a stamp machine. I am interested in checking out what Gritz said about using Paypal. I've never done that before. Unlike the Troll, I don't get my packages at the post office so I don't have that to fall back on while I wait in line. However, I do check blogs via the Iphone.
Now, for the weekend events. I already mentioned the Vlad Guerrero signing by the Rangers. As I write this at 6:30 in the morning, that deal is still on so we'll assume it goes through.
Somehow, I missed the hubbub over the Chicle cards. I need some help from my dear readers. Who started the ranting and who did the first Chicle custom card because those are hilarious? I think I would rather collect those customs instead of the real things.
Also, I finally got that busted scanner traded in and will be trying to scan some cards today. I'm a little envious of Night Owl who recently finished scanning the ENTIRE 1975 set and I've yet to scan one, single little scrap of cardboard. Oh well, I've always been a little behind so why should this be any different.
I'm working on about 7 or 8 more packages so watch that mailbox. Until tomorrow...
