Hello people. I am fuming and as usual, vent here. I only had a few cards to mail and stopped at my post office to request 10 more Christmas stamps. My carrier is paid $29.50 per hour plus $.50 per mile, per day, for her route. I would assume the manager would be a higher rate. I asked her for the Christmas stamps, she held up a green stamp with a tree on it. I asked if she was sure and she said they are clueless as to the print (EID Greetings), but it is the Christmas tree stamp and the only one they have at that branch. So onto my envelopes they go and into the bin. I looked it up when I got home. It is shaped like, but not a Christmas tree - it's calligraphy with Islamic symbols. EID commemorates the two Islamic holidays, Eid al-Fitr and Eid al-Adha. It is a Muslim stamp for a Muslim holiday, they do not believe Christ is the Son of God, they do not recognize or celebrate Christmas, and my post office is selling them to me as a Christmas tree stamp. I am furious. All my cards to my Catholic and Christian family and friends have a Muslim stamp. Should I have known this? I'm not Muslim! Why would I know? More importantly, why didn't she? Another government employee that serves the public well.
