Pet Peeve Thursday

It’s pet peeve Thursday. What’s been getting under your skin lately? It’s okay. Go ahead and push the button labeled “Annoyances.”

I’ve got a pet peeve I’d like to share – people who go to the post office totally unprepared. I love the folks who work at the post office on Avent Ferry Road in Raleigh including Tony, Romeo, Sharon, Dale and Linda. They are always cheerful, helpful and highly professional. I was in there the other day and this guy had three things to mail but he had no boxes, sketchy address information and simply no clue about common courtesy.

The staff handled the situation with poise and patience but I felt sorry for the people in line waiting to get their packages mailed. Is it too much to ask for someone to package, tape and address their items before they arrive at the post office?

It’s really not that hard.

Okay, it’s your turn. What’s your pet peeve this week?
