However, this time I visited the Post Office in the North Clairmont section of San Diego. This is a very nice community. This Post Office is a very busy place, but the line moves quickly. When I reached the Postal clerk, I requested three stamps. He quickly pulled a sheet over with some square stamps with some nondescript pale-colored drawing on them. I said I didn't want them. His retort was - that was what he was selling. I presume that they have to sell stamps left over from sheets. Anyway, he wouldn't budge. So, I asked him if that was what the other clerks were selling. He shrugged his shoulders giving me the impression that he just didn't care.
So, as a customer left the postal clerk next to him, I just moved over to this man's station. I told him I needed three stamps and then I asked if he could sell me the Purple Heart stamps. He politely told me that he would check in the back. He quickly returned to his station with a sheet of Purple Heart stamps and presented me with three. I told him that I really appreciated his help. His name was Alex. I think he should be commended for great customer service.
Since I have some birthdays coming up, I guess I'll give in and purchase a small book of stamps. Maybe this time I'll buy the "Forever Stamps."
