At Least 10 People Reportedly Tried To File Their Taxes Through Coachella's Fake Log Cabin Post Office… So You're Doing Better Than Them!

no title

Being an adult is hard.

Not only are you forced to do your own taxes without ever being prepared for such a difficult task, but sometimes, said taxes are due mere hours after you were getting stoned at Coachella!

Okay, so this probably does happen to too many people, but we're hearing that at least ten individuals tried to file their taxes at a cartoon-ish log cabin "post office" in Indio, Cali. over the weekend…

Apparently, some forgetful festival-goers tried to get the cutely named post card shop to deliver their forms last minute, but since Coachella obviously doesn't have a fully-running post office, they were turned away.

But not before giving shopkeeper Megan Hampton some lip — she says the procrastinators thought the shop was an actual USPS location and were confused why she wouldn't take their taxes, saying:

U.S. Post Office To Release Owney The Dog Stamp

Filed under: Dog


Look at that face! Who wouldn't want to send a million letters using that stamp??

The U.S. Post Office has released a new stamp honoring Owney the dog, who was America's roaming dog back in the 1880s.

The story of Owney originates in upstate New York when a terrier mix was seen riding in the postal wagon of a mail delivery train. He rode along the U.S. railroad tracks giving luck to workers, who had dangerous jobs on train tracks that caused more than 2,000 injuries and 80 deaths.

Nancy Pope, historian and curator at the National Postal Museum spoke about the stamp:

"It’s been in the works for a long, long, long time. People would ask, 'Shouldn’t there be a stamp with Owney on it,' so it’s been one of those things that people bring up on a regular basis."

And looks like the Post Office gave in to their demands. And it's about time! This stamp is just too cute to not use!

Saturday Mail Delivery Could Soon Be A Thing Of The Past

Filed under: Etc.Politik

Saturday Doomed Post Office

They've been warning us for years that it could happen.

The Postmaster General is using the debt talks in government to push the idea of doing away with Saturday delivery, and this time he thinks it'll stick. And it needs to — it'll save the Post Office $3.1 billion a year.

Postal Pup Up For Adoption!

Filed under: Cuteness!AdoptionPuppy

Guess the puppy

Looks like it will be a happy ending for the poor puppy who was almost killed when a Minneapolis woman attempted to mail him in a box to her son in Atlanta.

The 5-month-old schnauzer-poodle mix, now named Guess, will be up for adoption this Friday!

Anyone interested in adopting this adorable pup must be at the Minneapolis Animal Care and Control shelter where a drawing will be held.

Since Guess has gotten plenty of attention from the media, don't be late because the shelter is expecting a line.

Shelter officials say hundreds of people from across the U.S. and the world have already asked to adopt Guess.

Only one lucky family can take home guess, but hopefully this issue will encourage other people to consider adoption.

There are plenty of other animals out there just like Guess who need a home too!

The Post Office Wants To Know: Does It Droop?

Filed under: Business Blitz


Your newspaper, that is.

The Post Office is abiding by a new rule as of this week, stating that if a flat piece of mail longer than 10 inches "droops" too much, it will cost the sender more to send in bulk. This law mostly pertains to magazine and newspaper companies that have taken to sending their materials through the Post Office rather than having their own delivery team.

The rule was put into to place since such "droopy" mail can't be sorted through the automated flat sorter, and thus, someone must do it by hand. Hands cost more than machines, as you might know, and we wouldn't want the Post Office having to pay another set of hands now would we?

Due to the changes, every newspaper being sent through the postal service is undergoing a "droop test" (LOLS) to determine if they fit in the machine. If they do, great. If not, FAIL, which means paying more money for shipping.

Not such good news for your local paps! Maybe they'll have to bring back Newsies to deliver'em!

P.S. - OMG! Yes, do that!
