Another frustrating visit to the post office

Bob Faucett, Breckenridge

It is 2 p.m. and as with any other visit to Breckenridge’s main Post Office, the line is 10 people deep. Only two service windows are open, so I know it is going to be a long wait. My reason for this visit is simply to buy seven more 2-cent stamps to go with the remaining 37 cent stamps I have, now that the price of a stamp has been once again raised to 39 cents.Every visit to this Post Office raises the same questions:1. Where is the Post Master and cannot she/he see the long lines every day?2. With Summit County lacking home delivery, why do we have to endure this office inefficiency also, while still having to pay the same 39 cents as the rest of the country?3. Can’t the Post Master open a Parcels and Packages window, so people do not have to wait in line to simply retrieve their packages in exchange for their little orange cards?4. When there is more than two people standing in line, can’t someone call one or two of the employees that are certainly in the back rooms of the Post Office and open more of the service windows?I have no complaints with the service staff that are working the one or two windows that are open, as they certainly must have to endure enough complaints and try to smile while staring at the long, frustrated line of people in front of them. They just need more help.
