Little known facts:
#28 By the time an American child reaches the age of 18, that child will have seen approximately 40,000 murders on television.
So another of life’s lessons.
I have mentioned many times that we have a mail service and most of our mail goes there. Where ever we are, we call and have our mail delivered mostly General Delivery to the smaller post offices. Country Post Offices are the best. The most unique was in Alaska where one Postmaster was also a housewife and the Post Office was in her living room. The Office was closed during their meal times.
Some RV Parks will receive mail. Here they gladly accept mail. I ordered a couple things from Amazon to repair the coach, they arrived on time with no problem.
As usual Sherry called for our Mail and gave them this address. Day 3, No mail! Day 4 No mail. Sherry called and the mail forwarding service who says, "It was delivered according to our tracking number."
RV office declares it is not here. We went to the P.O. in Williamsburg. The postal folks were outstanding even at the wrong P.O. They printed out their tracking info and gave us the address for the correct P.O. The gentleman there was very nice. “Hold on, I will check exactly where the package was scanned upon delivery.”
Did you know when those numbers are scanned there is a built in GPS that gives the exact time and spot on earth where that scanner read the numbers? I certainly did not.
In a few minutes the P.O. dude comes out with a printout map showing the RV Park mail box on Rochambeau Drive with the exact time of the scan (2 days ago). “Is that the RV Park Mail box?” WOW! Yes it was.
“Either the package was illegally taken out of the box, or misplaced on the way, or at the office.”
Now I have six pages of information along with a picture. But still no mail.
Back to the RV Park office. A new lady at the mailroom. I gave our name. In seconds she returned with our mail. I was smiling when I walked to the car. I had the mail! No I didn’t complain. I had the mail and WE had learned a lot. We also met some great folk at two post offices.
Another IMPORTANT lesson, tracking numbers are much more than I ever thought. So we will always request a tracking number. Good to know.
