Miranda and I just got back from sending off a package to jolly old England. Two of the people in front of us waited in line for about 10 minutes to mail letters to the US and somewhere international. Why they couldn't just stick a couple of stamps on at home and mail them, I'm not sure. But that is not the point of this story. This story actually focuses on the lady in front of them, who spent $529.60 sending packages and cards around the world.
So, the next time you decide to boycott Christmas for its blatant commercialism, remember to boycott sending packages, too.
