When the mailman knows your name, should that make you reevaluate your habits? How about when he comes to the door and asks “doing some more online shopping again are we”? Well at least he made the effort to thank me for single handedly allowing him to keep his job.
My grandma has enjoyed talking with the mailman when he comes to the door with a package. The first time, she was alarmed when he made reference to how much mail Kitty has gotten since she moved it. She assumed he knew me since he said I seemed like “a nice girl” but apparently saying hi to the mailman on occasion, accompanied with his ability to match my name on my letters to my face makes it appear we are more than acquaintances. (slightly creepy!)
Yes, I am an online shopper...hardcore.
But, I am also known to send a number of things snail mail (Who doesn’t like to get a letter?!) but I certainly have never had a postman know my name! I have noticed everyone is extra friendly here. From the AAA man who came to get my keys out of my trunk, to the neighbors, the Ace Hardware employees and the exterminator…everyone seems extra friendly.
Ever seen “The Truman Show”?? I am not saying I am full of myself and think the world revolves around me, but some days in Lincoln I honestly feel as if I am living in that movie!
