If I might since we are discussing post office and such. I liked to tell a couple of stories.
When I was a agent in Korea we had to go to post housing prior to the furniture and things being packed up to be sent back to the states. The packers would be there and we would basically make sure no batteries, food etc was sent or anything flammable besides of course the obvious of drugs and alcohol
I was in the house of a Col who happened to be gone somewhere and his wife was there. I was just spot checking things around the house, went into the bedroom and opened boxes etc. I opened one and my mouth dropped open and I think I may have said something. I reached in and pulled out the biggest, thickest aaaah bedroom aid that I have ever seen. It was operated by batteries and the lady came in and said.
"The batteries are out of it and my husband is gone a lot." I turned beet red, replaced it and walked out of the room.
But back to the post office. Yes Sadie I was not talking about sweets. LOL.
But some of the stuff, I would have certainly preferred they had been washed prior to putting them in a box.
