Just wanted to say ‘thanks’ to the Monroe Post office for taking about a month (so far) to put another drop box in the parking lot.  Someone damaged the old one and I was told by one of the clerks that they need to get ‘authorization’ and go through red tape and ‘budget’ hearings in Seattle, etc. etc. blah, blah, blah, to put up another one.  We’ve  had to take our lives in our hands in the Post Office parking lot (you all know what I mean) to go inside to mail a letter.  This is bureaucracy at its finest. 

My buddies and I could have plopped another box down there in half an hour.

Just sayin’....
