Scenes From the Post Office

I went to the post office today to get an international stamp, and after I'd gotten it, I walked out into the atrium to post some letters in the drop box.

The drop box is just behind a large stamp machine, which was in use by a tall high-school kid, talking on his cell phone.

The bottom of the stamp machine had a sign. It read:

PLEASE DO NOT KICK THE STAMP MACHINE

THE MACHINE GOES OFFLINE WHEN KICKED AND NEEDS TO BE REPAIRED

IF THIS CONTINUES, WE WILL REMOVE THE STAMP MACHINE


And the kid read the sign carefully, reared back, and gave the machine a swift kick.

The atrium was immediately filled with a siren-like wail as what was apparently a kicking alarm went off. And the kid smiled, continued with his cell conversation, and ambled into the main office to buy stamps.
