The Runaround

Man. WHEN did everyone get banker's hours?

As I am on a staycation, I decided, after dropping the kids off at their schools, to run errands; post office, library, Target and bank.

First stop in my circuit, the post office. I arrive promptly at 8 a.m. to find that they open at 8:30 and have no automated kiosk. Grrr.

Fine, I'll head on over to Target; there's another post office near there. By the time I am done at Target it will be 8:30. Target is, thankfully, open at 8 a.m. I get my quick shopping done (I'm on a mission, no dilly-dallying for me) and head off the the post office near Target. It is 8:34. THIS post office.....opens at 9:00. WHAT. THE. HECK.?!?! Seriously?!? No kiosk either. WHY do they have different times?? And they wonder that they are losing money??

Quick drive-through ATM transaction and I am back on the road to the library. I take a call from David. He wants me to pick up two books for him. Sure, I say. At 8:49 a.m. I arrive at the library. The parking lot looks sparse and I think "They must open at 9. I can wait." I drive to the front. They open at 9:30. Someone hold me back! I put my books in the night drop box and call David to say I am NOT waiting 40 minutes for the library to open. I'll have to get his books later.

On the way back home, I stop at the first post office I went to, to send my Mother's Day gifts to my mom and David's mom.

No wonder we're a slacky nation. Everyone has banker's hours.
