lol Annie, the cosmetic store sounds like a good idea, I'm just sorry I won't be one of your clients as I got one perfume as well
Everyone, you know how the annual visit to the post office to send all of you the new year cards has to be either a drama or a joke? I mean, it's now part of the season holidays traditions, no?
After the drama last year (evil post office women not wanting to give me so many stamps etc
), this year it's a joke!
I just come back from the post office. First I wanted to buy all the stamps at the machine but didn't have enough coins, and the change machine kept rejecting my bill. So I had to buy the stamps at the desk. Shockingly, the employees in this office (near my work) are very nice (note to self: always prefer this post office to the one at home, always
The woman immediately gave me all the stamps I needed
and then (gosh, they are soooooo nice
) she said "you can borrow my sponge for a couple minuts if you want to". Yeah, they have a wet sponge on the desk, that they use for the non-sticky stamps, and since I had so many cards she was nicely offering me to use it
I had to go back to work so I decided i'd put all the stamps on letters at work, and said it was very nice of her but not necessary. And she asked "seriously? you have so many stamps, you're sure you prefer to lick?" and *prepare to
for me* I answered "it's ok, thanks, I'm used to it" which was perfectly innocent but sounded very naughty judging by the reaction of the employee (-->
) and by the reaction of a customer waiting on the side, who had been like sleeping on his chair for a while and wake up suddenly like I had been calling his name
I felt a bit embarrassed but didn't find the words to explain myself. On a second thought it's probably better this way, because it looked like I had no clue I said something funny
, whereas adding something like "used to lick stamps every year i mean" could have make it worse
Anyway, I'm looking forward to next year to see how the tradition evolves
