Look at my goth pic album and you'll see what I looked like in high school. :giggle:

Thankfully I can can look back at my electric blue liberty spikes, my tail that went down to my butt, the 4 holes in my ear, and all the makeup I wore and laugh about it.

I'm off to bed,folks. Got a long day tomorrow. If anyone feels like chewing me out based on misunderstandings or any chuckles at my expense,well.........I'll have to respond to you tomorrow. I thought I had a legitimate complaint and became a target instead which took away the whole basis of my thread post. Sorry if I'm a little grumpy,but I regret posting my thread thoughts at all.

What are you talking about?!? This is your best thread ever!

You started it all grumpy and (most) of us are just trying to cheer you up.

Don't take everything personally. :P

Why are you not on Facebook?

I started out on Live Journal,but then my friends wanted me to transfer over to Myspace. Now they want me to transfer to Facebook. I refused. One sleazy networking place is enough for me. I have my alter egos;good on here,well I try. And bad on Myspace,which is me mostly griping about stuff. I need an outlet somewhere.:rolleyes:

Facebook is a little cleaner than MySpace if you want a more "blog-like" environment and you can control access to your page a little better. You should try it for a while. There are a lot of PC'ers over there.

It all depends on your location. There are several city post offices around here. I have found that the bigger the location, the higher the probability of getting the "look" and the "shoulder" from the clerks.

The most ridiculous policy I came across was having to sign your credit card to use it.

Here is my story: We were shipping several large parcels to an APO box. I want to pay with AMEX and have "Check ID" on the signature block.

The Postmaster in the office shows me the placard that says all cards have to be signed. I tell them that I do not sign it for security purposes. They don't care. I pull out my ID. Still no dice.

So I sign the back of my card there in the Post Office and we are in business.

Thinking that they took it because I showed them my ID first, during the next shipment I do the same process with them and whip out the MasterCard.

I show them the MasterCard that has "Check ID". They tell me that it has to be signed. So I sign it. They take the card without checking my ID.

Go figure. The USPS supports credit card fraud.

Between losing parcels, waiting 6 weeks for delivery or the ability to file a lost claim, I stay away from them as much as possible with the exception of being able to mail stuff across the country for under $1.

Gotta love that!

I think you'll find if you read the fine print on your credit card agreement, your card must be signed to be valid. "Check ID" is not a valid signature unless your name happens to be "Check ID"

I have to see the fine print before I can read it. (looking for the squinty eyed smilie but not seeing it) :121_reindeer:

anyway, my point is that I found a very small office that only houses a few hundred boxes. The PostMaster there is friendly and as long as I respect the hours, she goes above and beyond what is required to assist me.

I have not been back to the other larger office in years.

I always buy insurance on everything that goes through USPS. If a seller won't offer insurance,I won't buy what they're selling. And if I ship anything out with USPS,I'll pay for the insurance whether the buy wants it or not.
