In a recent letter to the editor of one of our local newspapers, the Hillsborough postmaster urged customers to stay home this holiday season. Instead of visiting the 08844 post office on Amwell Road, he suggested they should buy stamps by mail, or make use of the USPS web site.
I have to agree! I wrote about my own post office woes in 2007, and a year later, I'm not sure anything has changed. The post office is slow, slow, slow.
It seems as if the postmaster has given up trying to speed things up in there. Maybe he doesn't have the resources, or maybe the lethargy is so entrenched there is no way out. In any case, his letter to the editor is clearly a letter of surrender.
We accept, unconditionally!
