歧视人的胶带纸

January 15, 2008 on 1:38 pm | In 蛰居琐话 | 4 Comments

上午去邮局给国内一朋友寄包裹,问清最便宜的航空First-Class Mail International寄送时间大约7-12天,心中正喜,柜台的阿姨看着我怀里敞开大口的纸箱,笑眯眯的问道,“你带封箱的胶带了吗?”我一脸茫然的摇头,被告知得提前自个把箱子封好了才给寄。

“咦”,被浇了一头冷水的我,急中生智找到一个反驳理由,“你们不需要检查一下箱子里的东西吗?”

阿姨继续笑眯眯的说,“咱不检查。”接着给我两个选择,一,如果寄19块钱的Firs-Class Mail,就再花4块钱买一卷邮局卖的胶带纸,二,如果寄29块钱的Priority Mail,则不用操心,他们提供免费的胶带纸。当然还有三,回家封好了再跑一趟邮局。

忿忿之余,又觉滑稽的纳闷,莫非美国邮局不景气如此、要干起强卖的勾当,还是只此Stanford一家的特例?

最后解决方案四:A同学从实验室赶来救急,拿了一卷胶带纸。

  2. Thanks for my best friend and your lovely husband! It seems that the more you pay, the better service you get which is really a truth worldwide.
