U.S. Postal Service – “We’re Making Doing Business More Difficult!”

© ip5683@verizon.net

So today I went to my local post office to buy stamps. I gave the clerk my credit card, which I have “signed” with “See Picture ID.” No doing. You see, the Postal Service has decided that they will not accept credit cards asking for your driver’s license or Military ID or Police ID. No. The Postmaster has decided that this “too risky.” Rather, your credit card has to be signed with your name for them to accept it. Because you may be using the photo ID of someone who is your double while you are up to no good buying envelopes. Or something.
