keeping you up-to-date with the latest

October 17th, 2006

Then you get on the plane. Pilot's always gotta come on the PA system. Give you his whole thing of what he's gonna do. "And here's how I'm gonna do it. I'm gonna take it up to twenny thousand. Then I'm gonna make a left by Chicago. Then I'm gonna go south by ..." We're all back there going... "yeah, fine". "You know, just do whatever you gotta do, I don't know what the hell is going on here. Just end up where it says on the ticket, okay? Can you do that?" Do I bother him telling him what I'm doing, knocking on the cockpit door "I'm having the peanuts now".

The legendary air travel routine by Jerry Seinfeld. Why do I bring it up? Consider this.

I got We got a letter from the post office today. It was addressed to "Inhabitants of this address". What about? Glad you asked.

TGP Post from today on is called TNT Post.

Then they go on to explain how they are changing their company logo from using red and white to using orange and white. Yes, it really makes you sit up and take notice, doesn't it? They also assure us that we will continue receiving mail as heretofore - their service is not changing.

For those of us still a little frazzled by this unexpected development, they bundle a little brochure with a nice new orange letterhead and lots of pictures of mailmen and mail trucks in the sparkling, new orange color. Not only that, a prepaid envelope, as they say "This one time you mail for free". I suppose if one were to hoard these letters, a greater amount of these free envelopes may actually be worth something in postage savings. Then again, I mail about 2 letters a year.

But it's good to be up-to-date. In other news, the sun will set tonight as scheduled.

    My letter also said they might be relocating the mailboxes in the area, I'm sure they'll send a second letter should that take place.

    Happened with me this year, my mobile operator changed from Vodafone to Telenor and thus the colours from red to blue and you can't imagine the amount of spam they sent me in the mailbox. Yes it was spam addressed to me. For a period of two months I used to get at least one letter per day from them about how they changed, what the new options are and the logos and the colours. Only one letter was of significance to me saying that my subscription will not change.

    Should I get desperate, I'll just go to the post office. No mention of them relocating.

    The trick is to get there early, before they open. :D
