Today I had to ship a package via USPS for work so I headed to the nearest post office. This location has bullet proof glass at the counter…funny I thought guns couldn’t enter federally designated gun free zones. As I always do, I parked across the street, removed my concealed carry gun and stowed it in my glove box. I then got my package and proceeded into the building . . .
As I entered the counter area I noticed on the door a $50K reward for an attempted armed robbery that happened just a few weeks before at that very post office (notice the bullet-proof glass to the right). It was at that point I thought to myself jokingly “I’m glad I had to disarm myself before entering this building!”
I proceeded to the counter, but one of my packages was too large to pass through the double-sided “safety” window. The postal worker told me he would be unable to accept the package and that I would have to find a different location.
I asked him if he could open the side receiving door so I could give it to him, but he refused. He then told me about the attempted robbery that had happened and that he couldn’t open the doors for anyone. For his own safety.
So I asked, well what about my safety? He shrugged his shoulders and said he couldn’t help me and to have a nice day. Which is apparently close enough for government work.
