My Post Office Adventure
    #4515015 - 08/09/05 06:06 PM (11 years, 3 months ago)

I never thought a simple trip to the post office could be so...weird...

Well anyways, after bumping into a girl that had recently stood-me up, I went to the counter to buy a few stamps. I tried to make conversation and be friendly with the guy there, so I remarked "You look like it's been a long day...?" Here is the ensuing conversation:

Him: "What does that mean?"
Me: "You just look a little tired is all"
Him: "Do you want me to look tired?"
Me: confused silence
Him: "We are trading here..."
Me: chuckle nervously
Him: (looking at zipcode), "Hm, let's make this legible here...", darkens a clearly legible 7
Me: "Hehe, thanks..."
Him: "He might push this to Alaska..."
Me: (completely confused) "Yeah...a friend of mine just got back from Alaska...said it was pretty cold..." chuckles
Him: silence
Him: "[Price] please"
Me: Hands him money
Him to another employee: "I think I might hit somebody wearing a Pink Floyd shirt on the way home from work today..."
Me: (realizing I'M wearing a Pink Floyd shirt) "Are you trying to hint at something?" (jokingly)
Him: slowly turns head and glares at me "I was talking to my friend here"
Me: "Oh..."
Him: continuing: "270 horses was the force that the mosquito hit my windshield this morning"
Me: Totally bewildered and slightly worried..."Do you like my shirt?"
Him: "No."
Me: "Oh...do you like Pink Floyd?"
Him: "Yes."
Me: "Oh so you like Pink Floyd but not the shirt?"
Him: "Yes. Have you ever listened to The Wall?"
Me: "Yes."
Him: "All the way through?"
Me: "Oh, nope, can't say I have."
Him: A knowing look in his eyes..."Oh"
Me: as I'm leaving "take it easy man"

That was hands-down the weirdest conversation I have EVER had with a postal employee. I don't know WHAT he was going on about...darkening the 7, muttering about Alaska, commenting about my shirt...

I hope everything arrives where it's supposed to!  :confused: :confused:

Crazy people like that are the best to run into. It's best just to go with whatever he's saying. You handled the situation pretty well.
