The Mail Must Get Through

In fair weather or foul, the mail must get through.

No one knows why anymore. It has been possible for a decade to send any message electronically and to replicate or actuate any object that might previously have required physical transportation.

I suppose the mail carriers have a good union.

This story was based on the prompt “in fair weather” on TypeTrigger.

Boxing Day

“My stuff is in the truck already. Where’s yours?”

“I still think this is a colossal waste of time.”

“Look, I don’t make the rules. On Boxing Day we pack stuff, drive it around, and unpack it again. It’s tradition.”

“No, it’s idiotic.”

“Are you calling me stupid?”

“Absolutely yes.”
