So today, my good friend "A" goes to the local Post Office at Four Corners (Silver Spring, MD).
She walks in to mail some packages, and pick up some religous Christmas stamps for herself and for me. (I told her to pick up about 8 or 9 books for me -- like I said, I use them throughout the year.)
The clerk behind the counter tells her: "We are sold out. We have Hanukkah stamps. We have Kwanzaa stamps. We don't have the religious ones. Would you like one of the others?"
Can you believe that? Out of religous Christmas stamps.
I am going to have to go to one of the larger Post Office stations now.
