I am, that’s who.
Imagine that you can see over my shoulder as I took this photograph. There, you would see a long line of people all with faces fixed in some state of exasperation.
Yesterday afternoon, I went to my local Post Office and mailed the Kickstarter reward CDs. I got there just after lunch and there was nobody ahead of me. I waited for the shift change to finish, leaving only one guy to wait on anyone who came in. I stepped up to the counter and we got to work. And then, a bunch of people hoping to get the jump on others and get through with their mailing business quickly began to stack up. I didn’t dare look back for I was convinced that if I did, their dagger-like stares would do me in. I’m pretty sure I heard a bit of grumbling though and at least one joke of someone trying to break the tension.
Mr. Post Office man eventually gave me some stamps and sent me off to a corner to get the job done. Tension relieved. Mission accomplished.
For all of you who gave $25 or more to this project, I hope you enjoy your copy when it gets to you (for you local backers, I hope to deliver yours to you today).
